Oh, definitely. I remember one day my family was taking a drive somewhere, and that song came on the radio, and it just completely worked right then and there. It just sounded so good. I love it when that happens. And I agree wholeheartedly with "Streets" and "In God's Country", too (hell, just say The Joshua Tree and Rattle & Hum and that will pretty much say it all. Also, The Unforgettable Fire is a good CD to listen to while driving around).

Also, I must kick myself for not thinking of "The Long And Winding Road". *Kicks self* Good mention .

The song is "Ramblin' Man". I remember that song, 'cause it used to be on these mix tapes my family would play constantly whenever we were in the car back when I was a kid .

highway 101?





for some reason, the bruisers' "chrome" makes me want to drive across a deserted highway somewhere in iowa in a red pick up truck with my dog to keep my company. epsecially strange cos i don't have a dog (or a red pick-up).

so many bruce springsteen songs make me want to go on a road trip just so i can bring them along in the tape player.

I always consider the following songs by The Church and/or Steve Kilbey to be songs at least partially about travel or journeys:

Myrrh
Hotel Womb
Destination (actually the whole Starfish album seem to be a bit of a Church-esque travelogue)
Terra Nova Cain
Invisible
Keeper (solo SK)
Over (solo SK)

and of course these next two songs aren't so much about travelling as tripping, but they take you on one hell of a ride!

Anaesthesia
Nightfriends

Oh, and John Kilbey's "Travelling Karma" is a fun little song about public transit (in Bondi).

The first song that comes to mind is Streets.

But I also have to say the beautiful Heartland.




As far as a non-U2 song goes, Depeche Mode's interpretation of Route 66 gets me dancing every time!



@ U2Kitten - your avatar is HOT!!!

Come to think of it, The Joshua Tree is a great travel album as a whole.
