Traveling Songs

RAMBLIN’ MAN BY LEMON JELLY

I think the lyricist may have spent some time in outer space.

LA CALLING BY CRYSTAL FIGHTERS

Los Angeles may be the most referenced city in modern music.

ONE NIGHT IN RIO BY LOUIE AUSTEN

Rio sounds splendid, but not under these circumstances.

PARIS, TOKYO BY LUPE FIASCO

A relaxing beat and jet set lyrics.

LONDON IN THE RAIN BY VARIETY LAB

If you don’t like a metropolitan area with precipitation, then look elsewhere.

AMSTERDAM BY PETER BJORN AND JOHN

No bicycling playlist would be complete without mentioning one of the most cycling-friendly cities in the world.

BEWITCHED (BARRIO JAZZ GANG REMIX) BY PAULINE LONDON

Did you know that Rotterdam is the second largest city in the Netherlands and from 1962-2004 it was the busiest port in the world?

RONDO ACAPRICIO BY TOSCA

Reminds me of waking in a city where I do not speak the native tongue.

THE SOUND OF SAN FRANCISCO BY GLOBAL DEEJAYS

A pretty strange remix that I find oddly satisfying.

DOWN IN LA (SHAZAM REMIX) BY MUNK

One of my current favorites. This tune will keep the ride moving.
