Songs about moving


22 août 2008, 3h41m

I've decided to take a break from ranting futilely about social injustices to look for songs that mention moving or leaving home. This is what I have so far.

John Denver - Leaving on a Jet Plane
The Beatles - She's Leaving Home
Elton John - Rocket Man
Led Zeppelin - Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You
Santogold - L.E.S. Artistes
Mirah - Cold Cold Water
Camera Obscura - Let's Get Out of This Country
Goldfrapp - Caravan Girl
Leonard Cohen - Famous Blue Raincoat
Patrick Wolf - The Railway House

I'm too tired to try to think of any more, and I would like to see what other people come up with. Please suggest some

    There are many more Patrick Wolf songs, Demolition (which I guess is more about running away than moving) and Lands End ('I'm leaving London for Lands End, with a green tent and a violin' etc) are two that come to mind.

    My mum emigrated from Australia with 'Leaving on a Jet Plane' as her soundtrack. :>
