Songs about moving can be about relocating, dancing or moving on from a relationship. However, this list mostly features the best songs about moving on, such as "And The Beat Goes On" by The Whispers. If you've just gotten out of a relationship, some of these songs can definitely help you get through the heartache. There are great moving songs in the rock, country and rap genres. So me of these songs specifically mention moving in the titles and others allude to moving in the lyrics.

A great moving song comes compliments of Tom Petty. “Time to Move On” captures the freedom of moving with no agenda. “Moving Out” by Billy Joel is another good track that you will find on this list of the top songs about moving, as is “Move On Up” by Curtis Mayfield.

If by moving, you mean dancing, then take a listen to “Bust a Move by Young MC or Body Movin' by the Beastie Boys. One of the best dance tracks about moving is “She Wants to Move” by N.E.R.D.
