21 sonic landmarks to travel by

Featured: Late-winter sun over Lands End, San Francisco – 18 Mar 2012 (HL).

These are sonic landmarks and signposts marking passages of time. They’re also some of my favourite tunes to set the tone by which I’ll travel or while away the hours. That’s when I allow my mind to wander in dreamless landscapes, disentangle wished-upon possibilities, trek through inaccessible realms, sail on faraway seas, and arrive at a distant universe where Dad’s kickin’ it large with age.

With a sprinkling of songs in German and Spanish, your kilometrage may vary with these songs between 1975 and 2017. Select a single track or the entire playlist; I hope you enjoy listening to one and all.

    Thanks for sharing your list – Some of my favourites in amongst that lot – and some new (to me) artists to explore!

      Thank you, Sue, for your kind comment. it was a bit of a task to narrow the list down to a “mere” 20 to 22 songs 😅
      Which songs do we have in common?

    I doubt that I could condense to only 20-22!
    Kate Bush, Genesis and, of course, Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here – a long-standing favourite of mine!

      Hi, Sue. It was interesting (and difficult) to shrink the list to what it is now. I’ll probably change or add entries to the list in the near future 😆
