Monday Music Post: It’s About the Journey
July 9, 2007
It’s time for another Monday music post. This time it’s a chill playlist that will send you (mentally, at least) on vacation.
Jimmy Buffett’s Parrothead anthem is an obvious choice, but Changes in Latitude, Changes in Attitude, also fits the bill, since it reminds us not to take ourselves so seriously, and nothing is too serious in the islands – “if we couldn’t laugh we would go insane.”
Although Marrakesh isn’t an island, it’s certainly can be an exotic paradise, so catch a train from Casablanca going south with Crosby, Stills, and Nash on the Marrakesh Express.
Get even further away from it all with Bob Seger (By the way – Bob and I share a hometown – he actually played at my dad’s high school dances – so I can call him Bob and all that.) and escape from everything by going to Katmandu.
Lastly, Miles From Nowhere by the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens is a good finale, because who hasn’t wanted to be miles from everything at least once in a while?
