Mike Mentz

Nashville, Tennessee

What's a song that makes you want to pick up and travel?

For me, there a few songs that, when I hear them, make me want to immediately get on a plane and fly somewhere I can explore. What are those songs for you?

    I am a Jimmy Buffett fan, a Parrothead as they call us. Jimmy, especially in his early years, wrote a lot of great songs. Great stories really. The songs, by and large you don't hear on the radio. Many tell of his, or a story of another's adventures, travel, discoveries. Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes does it in a heartbeat, as does One Particular Harbor. But a few lesser known songs really speak to me. Make me want to search for something deeper; to really see, understand and appreciate the world. That's what a song like That's What Livin' is to Me does very well, and in particular Far Side of the World.

    Though it doesn't have much to do with travel... this is my travel inspiration:

    When I wake up, (when I wake up),
    Well I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you, (Yeah I know)
    When I go out, (when I go out, )
    Well I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you, (who?)
    If I get drunk, (If I get drunk, ) well I know I'm gonna be
    I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you, (yeah) Yes!
    And if I haver, (when I hav... What does haver mean, ) yeah I know I'm gonna be I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you, (It's on 'ere)

    But I would walk 500 miles
    And I would walk 500 more
    Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
    To fall down at your door

    The song is Shimabalaie by Maria Gadù. It's a Brazilian song and it makes me think about the freedom of traveling and the smell of ocean air. My husband says: The Passenger by Iggy Pop. We have just discovered on Wikipedia a note that says that he wrote it in the 70s when he was riding the public transportation in Germany. He must have been inspired by the feeling of traveling :)

    Bright Eyes - Another Travelin' Song

    There's more to the song but these lyrics nail it : )

    "Well I'm changing all my strings
    I'm gonna write another traveling song
    About all the billion highways and the cities at the break of dawn
    Well I guess the best that I can do now is pretend that I've done nothing wrong
    And to dream about a train that's gonna take me back where I belong

    Well now the ocean speaks and spits and I can hear it from the interstate
    And I'm screaming at my brother on a cell phone he's far away
    I'm saying nothing in the past or future ever will feel like today
    Until we're parking in an alley
    Just hoping that our shit is safe"

    Perfect name for an album inspiring travel but start with the track So Flute, then Rose Rouge and go from there - always gets me wanting to move and visit new places! It feels old world and new world at the same time with jazz, latin and pop music influences.
