Waiting: A Musical

broadway sign

Music.  It inspires and expresses the emotions that I have about travel.  My cheesy, not so secretly inner theatrical nature feeds on it for survival.  The great thing about music is that I can listen to it, and seem totally cool on the outside while waiting.  Waiting in an office for a trip that is months away.  Waiting in a terminal for a plane.  Waiting for everyone to get on board with the awesomeness of my plan to travel the world!  And while I maintain a super-cool exterior with all of that waiting, I’m actually belting out some song in my head in a floor-length sequined dress!  (I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of such a dress in my wardrobe.)

This playlist never shrinks.  It only expands.  Prepare yourself for the corniness that is about to come your way.  For this one post only, I present you with selections from my “waiting” playlist.

Defying Gravity (Wicked) – Lucia and I have been jamming out to this one pretty hard for a few months now.  The ultimate break away from expectations song.

A Whole New World (Aladdin)- This is my go-to song when I am trying to explain to my friends why they really need to travel as well.  It hasn’t done the trick yet.

The Long Way Around (Dixie Chicks) – A refusing to settle down until some adventure is had song.

Ease on Down the Road (The Wiz) – When travel plans go awry, delays start happening?  Do you want to try not to become the worst person to be around? THIS SONG.

Don’t Rain on My Parade (Funny Girl) – All hail Barbra!  When everyone’s says no, your plans are terrible and you’re just exploding with YES, my plans are great! This one.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this foray into the inner recesses of my iPod.  What are your favorite travel songs?

  1. “Home” by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros… ironic as it may be. I was definitely singing that at the end of my Europe trip when I was stuck in Spain without a ticket home and no money to buy one, just biding my time til I got deported.
