During your travels you will end up in a lot of fun situations.
You will collect memories, and a few songs will take part in it. Then, when you are back home or wherever, you will hear this special song in the radio – and it takes you right back to those fun situations you will cherish forever.
For us, this is for instance “We don’t talk anymore” – we traveled Vietnam for 3 months and some local in every single village, town and city played it at least once. We turned crazy, yet it’s today a part of the experience. Then in Labuan Bajo, while taking the boat cruise around the Komodo National Park, the boat crew only had only one song to play, HIOKO TOBELO 2 – Yopie Latul.

Oh, my sweet Fraulein down in Berlin townMakes my heart start to yearnAnd my China doll down in old Hong KongWaits for my return
Pretty Polynesian baby over the seaI remember the nightWhen we walked in the sands of the WaikikiAnd I held you, oh so tight
dua. The Melodic – “On My Way”
I found an open door(I’m on my way)I think of love once more(I’m on my way)
Precious time on your ownSeeing more than you care to sayAnd the mist falls away(I’m on my way)
At times I’ve tried to feel(I’m on my way)With the thoughts I tried to steal(I’m on my way)
Left forgotten like young loveAll the choices I am made ofWhen the push comes to shove

7. Coldplay – Adventure Of A Lifetime
Turn your magic on, to me she’d sayEverything you want’s a dream awayWe are legends, every dayThat’s what she told him

Like I’m alive againAlive againOh, you make me feelLike I’m alive again
8. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication
Psychic spies from China try to steal your mind’s elationAnd little girls from Sweden dream of silver screen quotationAnd if you want these kind of dreams it’s CalifornicationIt’s the edge of the world and all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East at least it’s settled in a final locationIt’s understood that Hollywood sells CalifornicationPay your surgeon very well to break the spell of agingCelebrity skin is this your chin or is that war you’re waging?
9. Of Monsters and Men – Dirty Paws
Jumping up and down the floorMy head is an animalAnd once there was an animalIt had a son that mowed the lawnThe son was an OK guyThey had a pet dragonflyThe dragonfly it ran awayBut it came back with a story to say
