SONG TITLES and SONGS about DISTANCES & TRAVEL

I'll try to get this topic started with these song titles about DISTANCES/TRAVELING   ...........

 

*Travelin' Man     Ricky Nelson   which made it to #1 in 1961

 

*I Ran (So Far Away)     Flock of Seagulls

 

 

For a different approach, songs about  DISTANCES/TRAVELING...........

 

*Walk Away Renee'     The Left Banke

 

*Ferry Across The Mersey     Gerry & The Pacemakers

 

 

 

Uh, I am sorry if I led off with songs which you may have wanted to post here. How about this....wait a while and then post it....or post it now ! You see, repetition is OKAY Man Wink

 

Please understand, there's lots of freedom and latitude with this topic. Be creative....let's have plenty of laughs and plenty of wows like:  "Wow, I wish I had thought of that one!!" "Wow, that's a good one!!

I may hate myself for this one, but it is both protest and travel. Don't like things here? Maybe you need to take your: Holiday in Cambodia - The DKs (warning on language).

I think the Stones were trying to come up with a psychodelic, concept album to match the Beatles "Sgt. Pepper' and upcoming "Magical Mystery Tour". It wasn't that bad, had some good songs on it.

@ripvanwinkle96 I agree with you. Have you seen the mellotron Brian Jones had and used on the album? It is on display - I can't remember where - but it is absolutely gorgeous! It may be at the Met in New York.
