Route 66 - I'm most familiar with the Rolling Stones version but it's a classic travel song anyway...

Re: Travel Jukebox

"Convoy" is a 1975 novelty song performed by C. W. McCall (pseudonym of Bill Fries) that became a number-one song on both the country and pop charts in the US. Written by McCall and Chip Davis, the song spent six weeks at number one on the country charts [1] and one week at number one on the pop charts. The song went to number one in Canada as well, hitting the top of the RPM Top Singles Chart on January 24, 1976.[2] "Convoy" further peaked at number two in the UK. The song's success helped start a fad for citizens band (CB) radio. The song was the inspiration for the 1978 Sam Peckinpah film Convoy.

I had no idea this song was so popular around the world!

Re: Travel Jukebox

"Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)" is a 1988 single written and recorded by Enya. It also featured on her second studio album, Watermark.


Locations referenced in lyrics (in order of mention)

- Orinoco River, Colombia & Venezuela; also the original name of the London studio where the song was recorded

- Tripoli, Libya (There are other Tripolis- in Lebanon and Greece, for instance. But the reference to "the shores of Tripoli" seems to indicate that the Libyan one is intended.)

- Yellow Sea, Between Korea and China

- Bissau, Guinea-Bissau

- Palau, islands in Micronesia

- Avalon, British Isles

- Fiji, Fiji islands

- Tiree, Scotland

- Isles of Ebony, England

- Peru

- Cebu, Philippines

- Babylon, Iraq

- Bali, Indonesia

- Cali, Colombia

- Coral Sea, Australia

- Ebudae (Inner Hebrides), Scotland; also the title of a later Enya song

- Khartoum, Sudan

- The Sea of Clouds, possibly Mount Huangshan, China

- Island of the Moon (Comoros); also an island on Lake Titicaca, Peru & Bolivia; or Isle Maree (Scotland)[2]

- Ross Dependency, a part of Antarctica; also Ross (region of Scotland)


The song is often incorrectly referred to as "Sail Away", a phrase repeated during the chorus. The American version of the single, however, was retitled "Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)". It then peaked at #24 in early 1989.  But it made #1 on the Dutch Singles Chart, European Hot 100, Irish, Swiss and UK Singles Charts.
~Wikipedia


This song could set the record for the number of placemames mentioned in the world (or at least the most unusual)!
