Help Please!!

Hi everybody!! I'm in desperately need of help: I'm doing a project for school, it's an essay about the trip I did to Crete earlier this month. The problem is that I'm in charge of the "soundtrack" of this essay (we're doing it with both pics and text with Powerpoint), and I don't really have a clue about which song I should choose. Please help me! I need 4-5 songs about travelling!
thanks in advance,
Arianna

Oh come on. You can do your own homework. Go through your music collection and find songs that you feel like work with the pictures and text you're using. We don't have that in front of us nor were we on the trip with you, so we can't really be of much help.

I'm not an expert on Crete (I dont even know where it is ) but how about Back in the USSR by the Beatles? (even though its about the USSR, not Crete )

I wasn't being negative. I was giving her a suggestion so that she could do it herself, which is how she's going to learn. It's going to be much more personal and much more meaningful for her to choose songs that matter in some way to her and to her memories of the trip than for us to just tell her what to use.

What you needed to do lil-witch is say you needed the songs for a travel mix cd. People would be falling all over themselves giving you suggestions.

Roam -- B52s
Vacation -- Go Gos
Radar Love -- Golden Earring
Wide Open Road -- the Triffids
Going Mobile -- The Who
Gasoline -- Catherine Wheel
Running on Empty -- Jackson Browne
Born To Be Wild -- Steppenwolf
Highway To Hell -- AC/DC
Thunder Road -- Bruce Springsteen

The problem with these songs is most are great road trip songs, but I doubt they are good class assignment songs or good "feel of Crete" songs. They cover partying, summer flings, breakups, and hell-raising, but somehow, unless your teacher has a good sense of humour, I don't think they are gonna work for you. Sorry. ...maybe an instrumental would work better?

1. Blur - For Tomorrow
2. Stone Roses - She Bangs The Drums
3. Van Morrison - Brown-Eyed Girl
4. The Kinks - Drivin'
5. Supergrass - Sitting Up Straight
6. Suede - The Drowners
7. U2 - Staring At The Sun
8. Nick Drake - Pink Moon
9. Led Zeppelin - Going To California
10. Pink Floyd - Fearless
11. Sufjan Stevens - Chicago
12. U2 - Promenade
13. Gorillaz - El Mañana
14. The Who - Sunrise
15. Blur - Battery In Your Leg
16. Supergrass - Time
17. Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues
18. Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground
19. Scott McKenzie - San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)
20. Flaming Lips - Bad Days

Runtime: 75:59

Seriously, try it. The flow is superb.
