I love to travel! Vacation planning is one of my favorite pastimes. Many of us have had to cancel vacations due to the COVID-19 crisis. I was supposed to take a few trips… one to Las Vegas, another to Anaheim, CA, and a family reunion that was supposed to take place in Grass Valley, CA. This hasn’t stopped me from daydreaming, though. Have you been daydreaming of traveling too? I’ve put together a playlist of musical songs to help us daydream of traveling the world!
1.) “A Whole New World” – Aladdin
Alright, let’s hop on the magic carpet and take a trip around the world!
2.) “Buenos Aires” – Evita
First stop let the beat of Buenos Aires get those toes tapping!
3.) “Bonjour, Paris!” – Funny Face
A tour through Paris with Fred Astaire, Audrey Hepburn, and Kay Thompson sounds beau temps!
4.) “One Night In Bangkok” – Chess
Next stop, Bangkok!
5.) “Ireland” – Legally Blonde: The Musical
Just like Paulette, I too daydream about traveling to Ireland.
6.) “Barcelona” – Company
Whatcha thinking? Barcelona!
7.) “No Place Like London” – Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
While we’re on the Sondheim boat, let’s take a trip to London.
8.) “Sal Tlay Ka Siti” – The Book of Mormon
Right on the next bus to paradise, Sal Tlay Ka Siti!
9.) “Meet Me In St. Louis” – Meet Me In St. Louis
Meet me in St. Louis, Louis!
10.) “A Summer In Ohio” – The Last Five Years
…it wouldn’t be as nice as a summer in Ohio!
11.) “New York, New York Theme” – New York, New York
If I can make it there, I can make it anywhere!
12.) “Santa Fe” – RENT
Do you know the way to Santa Fe?
13.) “Kansas City” – Oklahoma!
Everything’s like a dream in Kanas City!
14.) “Atlantic City” – Ragtime
Let’s runaway to Atlantic City! Let’s feel the wind in our hair!
15.) “Neverland” – Peter Pan
I know a place where dreams are born and time is never planned…
