    I'm talking about the music you listen to when driving, flying, biking, whatever. Also songs about traveling that really touch you (in a safe way, if you know what I mean; not as in "show me on the doll").

    Starting out, this is probably one of my all-time favorites.

    My favorite (cliché alert) song for long distance driving:

    I used to work 500 miles from home and girl. I'd drive that at least once a month to see her and family. 1,000 miles ( not kilometres) in the late 19702.
    I loved the "journey"( as I call it) that Jackson Browne took you through on " Running on Empty:. Love that album, well written and structured.

    In recent years I let robots help me.

    I have play lists with specific tempos for a run or walk. For driving I copy to phone tracks that are theme, genre or style based and purposely not songs I know well. The combo of not knowing them well with theme aids staying alert.

    For biking no music. Tinnitus is a really big problem. I usually ride off road. The noise and concentration are rare moments when Tinnitus doesn't bother me. I don't just ride but fly and get 90 degrees sideways when I can. Listening to the tires is also tied to control. Hearing the tires scrub is a sort of warning gauge. Listening to hang time vs JRA is cool.

    I have rather eclectic tastes in my music. Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Junior Brown, Bill Kirchen, Dale Watson. Miles Davis. Just off the top of my head. Jack in the phone leave it on shuffle. Pandora and SeriasXM are good alternatives or several apps for local radio stations help in find music. Driving at night I like Moody Blues as well.

    I have a 6 stacker cd player in my car with two Winery Dogs albums, a Black Crowes album, Dark Side of the Moon and two early Zeppelin albums on rotation. They have been my travelling music for the past couple of years.

    Always like In a Silent Way, Miles Davis when leaving town before sunrise. McLaughlin for the win.

    I have a slightly quirky music approach, as between gigs and Uber driving, I 'live' in my car. I have a kick-butt Bose stereo system ( just what came with the car) and a 6 disc CD changer:

    #1 (always Bob Dylan) - currently Bringjng it All Back Home

    #2 ( always Grateful Dead)- live 1977 show ( from Dicks Picks)

    #3 ( Country/Bluegrass)- Kentucky Colonels/ Newport Folk Festival

    #4 ( always Steely Dan) - AJA

    #5 ( Blues or Rock- John Mayalls Bluesbreakers ' Crusade ' w/ Mick Taylor

    #6 ( always Jazz)- Ken Burns's ' Best of Herbie Hancock

    The list changes but I won't go on a long drive without these staples:

    Santana III
    Wayne Hancock "Swing Time"
    Ricky Nelson Greatest Hits (2005 Capitol version)
    Spirit "The 12 Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus" (sp?)
    Steely Dan "Aja"
    Neil Young "Rust Never Sleeps" (not "Live Rust")
    Allman Bros. "Eat a Peach".
