Great songs about journeys, travelling, etc

Well there's tons of them, but they often make a real profound effect on me.. here's some that spring to mind:

R.E.M. - Find the River
Soul Asylum - Runaway Track
Mercury Rev - Goddess on the Hiway
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Road Trippin'
Cake - The Distance
Travis - Driftwood
Junior Boys - Last Exit
Adem - Long Drive Home
U2 - A Sort of Homecoming

The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 miles)

(perhaps not technically a 'great' song, but still worth a mention)

Hehe, I so love that song .

"Life Is A Highway"-Tom Cochrane
"Runnin' Down A Dream"-Tom Petty

Also, "Heartland" by U2. Listen to it while actually driving through the heartland. It so works .

Hey Angela you got it! Miss you in PLEBA!

I also consider "Beautiful Day" to be a trip song.

"In God's Country" or "Streets" work too!
