Soundtrack to Travel – 10 of the Best Songs About Cities (2 minute read)

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2022)

We’re gearing up for the weekend, and to help us along here are five of the best travel tracks to keep you company on your next flight, hike, or train ride. We decided to focus on songs about cities (and a few countries!), that actually contain the name of a destination, rather than any old road-tripping song. From Bowie to Billy Joel and the Beatles, sit back and strap in for a listening party with our 10 favourite travel tracks.
