The votes are in.
Last Friday, with two bank holiday vouchers each worth a princely 25 to giveaway, I asked for YOUR favourite song about travelling (by bus, plane, car, train, on foot etc) and why.
You entered in your dozens.
But there could be only two winners:
Anna Kendrick – Cups

Not my favourite travelling song, but one that really means a lot to me. The film – Pitch Perfect (2012) came out at the right time and when we got together, this is the only song so far I have sung with my daughter. She kept correcting me on how it is sung (I cannot sing, so a hopeless act), but still she would sing it with me. As we drove between where she and her mom live and her grandparents she attempted to correct me. One of my favourite road trips with her, although they all were. Corny and all as it is, I love it. I give you the much maligned, but in my heart loved, Cups song by Anna Kendrick…
Magnetic Fields – Born On A Train
Aidan Curran writes:
Born on a Train’ by the Magnetic Fields, reminding me of a long delayed train to Dublin that finally arrived at Heuston late into the dead of night, after most of us passengers had gone through the Seven Ages of Man during the trip.
Terry Callier – 900 Miles
Terry Callier’s soulful voice really commands attention in this 1964 version of the traditional US folk song “900 Miles” The lonely traveller on the way home (Dion does a great version too)…
