Destination… Music

Whilst lock-down seems to be over for many – and apparently never applied (to a self selecting) some – we are staying at home.

Because? Well, there’s society, respect for the NHS, family health and other things the selfish can’t seem to grasp such as actual common sense.

That said, stir craziness is present. So much so that I’m starting to hear destinations/locations in almost every song… just me?

So in lieu of actually going anywhere, here are some songs with destinations in the title*. And they are not even glamorous/exotic.

*Sorta. Kinda. With a hat tip to those who contributed to a comedy pile-on some years ago…
