Songs for a North American adventure

These songs are necessarily amazing but I’ll be listening to them forever, because they’ll always take me back to particular times and places and highs and lows.

What songs remind you of places that you’ve travelled?

This was in my headphones when I was bouncing around the harbour in San Diego, at the very start of a solo Californian adventure.

This, alternating with economics lectures from Audible, was what I heard while navigating the streets and subway system of Mexico City.

Climbing hills on a hot day in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco, wishing I didn’t wear stockings.

The aftermath of a fling in with San Francisco. Walking around hungover and sad in Portland.

The waterfront in Seattle – blue skies, tall buildings, sleepless nights, facing the long road ahead of me.

Stressed and wandering in my first weeks in Toronto.

Thinking of my home and life (and community radio station) in Sydney. Also, I am convinced that this is as perfect as a pop song can ever be. Every note, every strum, every distant lyric, all falls right into place.

Berlin after 3 years, and Nachtdigital – dancing on a Sunday morning.

And finally, the song that will always remind me of my colourful and wonderful summer in Toronto:
