Selection criteria for my
Top 10 Travel Songs list

To maintain a focus...

A nominee for my Top 10 Travel Song list must be a true classic.

To prove that it has stood the test time, it must have been composed at least 25 years ago.

And it must have broad appeal by being popular internationally and with travelers of all ages.
