Here are carefully selected songs to set your mood straight and high for your 2019 cross-country moving.
The fact that you are changing location from the country where you’ve had amazing memories to another place with a new culture and faces is emotional enough. This emotion is mixed with the stress that comes with packing and checking your list to make sure no stone is left unturned. You have gotten yourself professional movers, your lists are all set, but you just seem to be moody and unsure if there's anything else to do. It’s fine to be emotional but hey, you don't have to get all moody and exhausted at the same time. There's gon' be light on the other side when this is all over. So, you can liven up your cross-country movement by selecting fitting songs for your MP3 player. Or you can load them on your flash drive and let your movers know you'd like to be the DJ and spice up the journey with your songs.
So, here are carefully selected songs to set your mood straight and high for your 2019 cross-country moving.
Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynryd:
This song sets your heart for a journey to the south. It connects with you on so many levels by providing you with things you can look forward to and ones that would make you dream of having a settled life there.
End of The Line by Traveling Wilburys:
"Well, it’s all right, riding around in the breeze" is a part of the song that hooks you. You are moving to a new place and you are not sure about what would happen there; all you have is hope. Sometimes, the hope may be bleak and you think is this really going to be worth it? This song tells you that it is fine to explore.
Traveling On by Kongos:
In the pursuit of greater and better things, we have to live those whom we have always known. Kongos knew this and sang, "So long my friend, my foe, my love, my pain. The road's calling out my name." He goes ahead for the things he hoped for in the new place mentioning his dreams and places he'd like to visit.
Paper Lions by Travelling:
It is a time for a break. Travelling knows the stress of pushing for so long and taking a long journey into a distant and new territory. Moving is not so bad after all and you can make do with a break.
Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver:
Yeah! This evergreen song! Are you going back home where it all began? Or you are going to a new place to make it home? Well, sing along, West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads…
Budapest by George Ezra:
George shared the pain of having to leave memories and adorable things behind but he provides courage and comfort to "stop" the worries and "believe".
You can go for a twist by going French with Blaumut on "Vent que mou el temps". Going Spanish isn't a bad idea either. So, you can get El Mismo Sol by Alvaro Soler.
