Raise your hand if you could use a vacation right now (I know I could.) Check out this list of the best songs about vacation, ranked by your votes. We don't all have the time and money to take a relaxing vacation, but listening to the songs on this list of popular vacation songs can be a fun escape from work. There are great country songs about vacation and great rock songs about vacation on this comprehensive list, among many other genres.

Jimmy Buffet is the king of vacation songs. His hits “Margaritaville” and “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes” both made this list. The Beach Boys are another band that are associated with sunshine and ocean breezes. Their single, “Kokomo,” is definitely one of the best vacation songs ever written.

Weezer and Vampire Weekend both have songs simply entitled “Holiday” and Lindsey Buckingham's song, “Holiday Road,” which was featured in several of the Vacation films, is another top vacation song. Maybe the best vacation tune award should go to The Go Go's pop classic, “Vacation.”
