Travel Tunes - Week 28

"Around the world the trip begins with a kiss"...I think I'll start taking that advice.  Too often, each trip begins more like "get your butt in the car, it's time to go!"

The kids from Athens, Georgia seem to know a little bit more than I.   Start it off right.  So they get this week's pick as the travel tune, the B-52's with Roam from their 1989 album, Cosmic Thing.  It hit number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1990.  It's THE travel song for many, appearing in Subaru ads in New Zealand, the theme for Peter Greenberg's show, in Discovery Network ads, and on PBS World.

Really, that's why we travel.  To go see new things, new places, different cultures, and...above all...have a good time.  That's what this song is all about, "roam if you want to, roam around the world...hip to hip rockin' through the wilderness."  Here now, enjoy Roam...
