Travel Quote of the Day:

"I close my eyes only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity

Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind

Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

Now, don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind (all we are is dust in the wind)
Dust in the wind (everything is dust in the wind), everything is dust in the wind (the wind)"

- Kansas (Dust in the Wind)

Travel Quote of the Day:

""I am an antichrist, I am an anarchist.
Don't know what I want, but I know how to get it.
I wanna destroy passerby.

'Cause I, wanna be anarchy.

Anarchy in the UK,
it's coming sometime and maybe.
I give a wrong time, stop at traffic line.
Your future dream is a shopping scheme.

'Cause I, I wanna be Anarchy.

How many ways to get what you want?
I use the best, I use the rest.
I use the N.M.E.
I use anarchy.

Cause I
Wanna be
Anarchy
It's the only way to be

Is this the MPLA?
Or is this the UDA?
Or is this the IRA?
I thought it was the UK,
Or just another country.

I wanna be, Anarchy
Know what I mean?
And I wanna be
Anarchist.
Get pissed.
Destroy"

- The Sex Pistols (Anarchy in the UK)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"Let me take you on a trip
Around the world and back
And you won't have to move
You just sit still

Now let your mind do the walking
And let my body do the talking
Let me show you the world in my eyes

I'll take you to the highest mountain
To the depths of the deepest sea
And we won't need a map
Believe me

Now let my body do the moving
And let my hands do the soothing
Let me show you the world in my eyes

That's all there is
Nothing more than you can feel now
That's all there is

Let me put you on a ship
On a long, long trip
Your lips close to my lips

All the islands in the ocean
All the heaven's in motion
Let me show you the world in my eyes

That's all there is
Nothing more than you can touch now
That's all there is

Let me show you the world in my eyes"

- Depeche Mode (World in My Eyes)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"Nobody gonna take my car, I'm gonna race it to the ground.
Nobody gonna beat my car, it's gonna break the speed of sound.
Ooh it's a killing machine, it's got everything.
Like a driving power, big fat tires and everything.

I love it, and I need it, I feed it.
Yeah it's a wild hurricane.
Alright hold tight, I'm a highway star.

Nobody gonna take my girl I'm gonna keep her to the end.
Nobody gonna have my girl she stays close on every bend.
Ooh she's a killing machine, she's got everything.
Like a moving mouth, body control and everything.

I love her, I need her, I seed her.
Yeah she turns me on.
Alright hold tight, I'm a highway star.

Nobody gonna take my head I got speed inside my brain.
Nobody gonna steal my head now that I'm on the road again.
Ooh I'm in heaven again I've got everything.
Like a moving ground, an open road and everything.

I love it, I need it, I bleed it.
Eight cylinders all mine.
Alright hold tight, I'm a highway star"

- Deep Purple (Highway Star)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"You got to learn how to fall
before you learn to fly.
And mama, it ain't no lie.
Before you learn to fly,
learn how to fall.

You got to drift in the breeze
before you set your sails.
Oh, it's an occupation where the wind prevails.
Before you set your sails,
drift in the breeze"

- Paul Simon (Learn How to Fall)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"I got your letter today,
said you gone for good
I would get you back,
if only I could.

I don't know where you gone.
I don't know who you with.
All I know is that I'm lonely back here and
I can love you better than him.

Put your trust, all in me,
baby come home.

It's no secret babe. that you messed around.
It's no secret babe, you got a man across town.

But you know this is love,
I don't mean you no harm.
Listen if I ever get my hands on him,
be doin time in the county farm"

- Davy Knowles and Back Door Slam

Travel Quote of the Day:

"If you see a faded sign at the side of the road that says
'15 miles to the Love Shack'

I'm headin' down the Atlanta highway,
lookin' for the love getaway.
I got me a car, it's as big as a whale
and we're headin' on down to the Love Shack.
I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20,
so hurry up and bring your jukebox money

The love shack is a little old place where we can get together.
Love Shack, baby.
Love Shack, that's where it's at.

Sign says 'Stay away, fools'
'cause love rules at the Love Shack.
Well, it's set way back in the middle of a field.
Just a funky old shack and I gotta get back.
Glitter on the mattress,
glitter on the highway,
glitter on the front porch,
glitter on the highway.

The Love Shack is a little old place where we can get together.
Love Shack, baby.
Love Shack, that's where it's at.

Huggin' and a-kissin'
Dancin' and a-lovin'
Wearin' next to nothin'
'Cause it's hot as an oven
The whole shack shimmies
Yeah, the whole shack shimmies
The whole shack shimmies when everybody's
Movin' around and around and around and around
Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin', baby
Folks linin' up outside just to get down
Funky little shack"

- B52's (Love Shack)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"Gonna take a freight train,
down at the station,
I don't care where it goes.
Gonna climb a mountain,
the highest mountain,
jump off, nobody gonna know.

Can't you see?
Can't you see,
what that woman,
been doin' to me?

I'm gonna find me
a hole in the wall.
I'm gonna crawl inside and die.
'Cause my lady,
a mean ol' woman,
never told me goodbye.

I'm gonna buy a ticket,
as far as I can,
ain't never comin' back.
Ride me a southbound,
all the way to Georgia.
Till the train, it run out of track.

Can't you see?
Can't you see,
what that woman,
been doin' to me?"

- Marshall Tucker Band (Can't You See)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"Slow down you crazy child.
You're so ambitious for a juvenile.
But then if you're so smart tell me,
why are you still so afraid?

Where's the fire, what's the hurry about?
You better cool it off before you burn it out.
You got so much to do and only
so many hours in a day.

But you know that when the truth is told,
that you can get what you want
or you can just get old.
You're gonna kick off before you even get halfway through.
When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you're doing fine.
You can't be everything you want to be before your time.
Although it's so romantic on the borderline tonight.

Too bad, but it's the life you lead.
You're so ahead of yourself that you forgot what you need.
Though you can see when you're wrong,
you know you can't always see when you're right.

You got your passion, you got your pride.
But don't you know that only fools are satisfied?
Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true.
When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?

Slow down you crazy child.
Take the phone off the hook and disappear for a while.
It's alright, you can afford to lose a day or two.
When will you realize... Vienna waits for you?"

- Billy Joel (Vienna)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"Jamaica was the lovely one, I played her well,
as we lay in the tall grass where the shadows fell.
Hiding from the children so they would not tell,
we would stay there 'till her sister rang the evening bell.

Jamaica, say you will.
Help me find a way to fill these empty hours.
Say you will come again tomorrow.

The daughter of a captain on the rolling seas,
she would stare across the water from the trees.
Last time he was home he held her on his knees
and said the next time they would sail away just where they pleased.

Jamaica, say you will.
Help me find a way to fill these lifeless sails.
And stay until my ships can find the sea.

Jamaica was a sweet young one, I loved her true.
She was a comfort and a mercy through and through.
Hiding from this world together, next thing I knew,
we had brought her things down to the bay
- what could I do?

Jamaica, say you will.
Help me find a way to fill these sails.
And we will sail until our waters have run dry"

- Jackson Browne (Jamaica Say You Will)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"I'm tired of working every day for a dollar.
About to choke on my own blue collar.
This ain't gonna last, misled by the grand illusion.
I've come to this conclusion,
I can't make the move too fast.

It was written in the sky today by the morning sun,
it sure looks like a good day to run.

Wide open down a two-lane highway.
It's about time that some things went my way.
Throwing troubles out to the wind and
I'm praying that they never catch up again.
I'm gonna say my worrying days are done
and this looks like a good day to run.

My baby's been working as a cashier.
She didn't get a vacation this past year but now it won't be long.
We don't need no destination.
Just a tank of gas and a good clear station playing our favorite song.

There're some places that we ain't been, some things that we ain't done
and it sure looks like a good day to run"

- Darryl Worley (A Good Day to Run)

Travel Quote of the Day:

"I knew a girl named Nikki,
I guess you could say she was a sex fiend.
I met her in a hotel lobby,
masturbating with a magazine.
She said how'd you like to waste some time?
And I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind.

She took me to her castle
and I just couldn't believe my eyes.
She had so many devices,
everything that money could buy.
She said sign your name on the dotted line,
the lights went out,
and Nikki started to grind"

- Prince (Darling Nikki)
