Im on the top of the world - summer songs

1. On Top of the World – Imagine Dragons

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
I’m on top of the world, ‘ay
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ay
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ay
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world.

2. Travelling – Paper Lions

A lot of Hostels out there are not looking just for simple guests. Those authentic Hostels are looking for travelers, friends, people sharing their culture, having a great time, and enjoying their stay. And they will tell it to you the same way “Paper Lions” are doing it: Please don’t be a stranger in my place!

Travelling come to a tavern for a momentary rest
I see the old man that I passed on the road in his distress
As I turned to go I can hear him say, “Son, stay. Have a drink, I’ll pay.”
Let bygones be gone, it’s all in the past, we raise a glass

Please don’t be a stranger in my place

3. Shinedown – Simple Man

The Traveler CooLeo says that this was the one song he had on repeat while backpacking South East Asia. The song of Shinedown – Simple Man hits his soul every time.  This video shows a compilation of scenery footage from his 2 month backpacking trip through South East Asia. Check it out and follow the footsteps of CooLeo.

4. The Voyage – Crash Test Dummies

It may be that I’d like to
But I won’t fall in love with you
We won’t spend the rest of our lives together
But anyway couldn’t we go on a trip together

We could go to the British Islands
And hike around the Scottish Highlands
The youth hostels they have there would be perfect for us
Cause we’re both youths, so they would really suit us

5. Düsseldorf – Regina Spektor

Follow Regina Regina Ilyinichna Spektor on her inspiring European trip from Düsseldorf, Gelterkinden, over Paris, Frankfurt, Berlin, Prague, Montpelier, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, London, Corsica, Marseille, and finally back to Düsseldorf. Regina is an American singer-songwriter and pianist, born in 1980. Her music is associated with the anti-folk scene centered in New York City’s East Village.

In Montpelier I stayed in a chateau
A boy climbed into my bed and he knew no boundaries
And in Amsterdam I got quite crazy
Might have been all the tulips and canals
Or it might have been all that hash, and in
Barcelona
, buenos días, chocolate, le Picasso
And in Brussels, clean-cut hostel
And in London, me and the French existentialistsâ?

6. Good People – Jack Johnson

Where’d all the good people go?
I’ve been changin’ channels
I don’t see them on the TV shows
Where’d all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow
Where’d all the good people go?

7. The Wrong Direction – Passenger (featuring Dom Scott)

So what’s the point in getting your hopes up
When all you’re ever getting is choked up
When you’re coked up,
And can’t remember the reason why you broke up
You call her in the morning
When you’re coming down and falling
Like an old man on the side of the road
