    Urgent music-related help needed

    Right, basically I'm in charge of finding a playlist of songs related to travel, other countries, and general global themes for a Uni event I'm helping to organise on Monday, and I need some help from people with broader musical taste than me.

    Doesn't matter the genre - examples would be Africa by Toto, or The Adventure by Angels & Airwaves, or Rotterdam (Or Anywhere) by The Beautiful South, or anything else with a title or lyric that links into the theme. Helps if it's good, too, but some hilariously bad stuff wouldn't go amiss if there is any.

    Figured this forum was the biggest collection of music fans I have access to, so it'd provide a decent number of responses. Thanks, guys.

    Awesome, such a gun tune, though the fact that it was New Order's only ever No.1 is somewhat saddening.

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys, keep them coming. Need as many as possible, my laptop is broken at the moment so I'm gonna have a limited time available using mates' music collections to get hold of them.
