Trip Songs


#1

I was just wondering about trip songs, I heard from a friend that went on a Contiki tour that they had a trip song that they played in the bus each day. It sounds kind of cool, does topdeck do anything like this.


#2

we didnt have that on our tour, but i had heard that they usually do :)[br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak

I have just finished the Spirit of Europe Oct trip and yes we had a trip song. I think it depends on your tour leader? If not suggest it!!![br][br][br]Chell[br]Spirit of Europe[br]14th October 2008

I think if there is no trip song its not worth the trip. I also did contiki and now everytime i hear the morning song (with a hangover) it brings back memories, we also had a wake up song! meaning when we were about to stop for our destination or just a break we were woken up by a loud song, If you have seen Zoolander or a clockwork orange you will understand how powerful a trigger song is


#5

our song to wake us up for a stop break was “Ive been everywhere man” by Johnny Cash! We all hate the song now!


#6

lol we had Damo making bird calls and then whispering “wake up!! wake up!!” lol it got so annoying by the end of the trip![br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak

Depending on your driver/trip leader you may get a ‘wee stop’ tune (i.e. they start playing it on the bus as you get close to your next servo stop)[br][br]Ours was ‘Dakota’ by the Stereophonics. I’ve heard it once since the trip and oh my god the feelings that rushed in as soon as it started were incredible…[br][br]I don’t think I’ve been at such an indecision to crank the radio up/turn it off in my LIFE! lol[br][br]It’s kind of like those songs they play on the radio over and over and over again until you’re so sick of them you can’t stand them…then months/years later you hear it again and it becomes your favourite song ever. Crazy.[br][br]EURO ODYSSEY OCT08[br]Can’t wait!!![br]

I hope my trip leader has one in store for us


#9

I used the songs from our contiki trip as part of the soundtrack to the footage i shot from the tour,… when i showed my mates from the trip (4years later) they were ahhhhh that soonngg ahhh I love it, everytime we hear those songs we just hav a laugh and remember the mental times on the bus…


#11

thats what i have done with my film fottage and pictures dvd :slight_smile: there are some songs (like mr brightside by the killers) that will always remind me of all the fun times![br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak

That’s a great idea to put the trip songs to video footage! I won’t be taking my video camera but i do have a digital photo frame that plays music so i’ll be able to store all my pics and the music on that when i get back[br][br]Nicole[br]Grand European July 2009[br]+ Britain & Ireland September 2009[br]+ Greek Islands

I had Damo and Brad on a tour last year and had “wake up its a beautiful morning” to wake up to. We tried to have “follow the leader” as a tour song but Damo wouldn’t have it.>:([br][br]Bec


#14

lol i had brad and damo too… but they told us that they had never actually worked together… maybe its a different brad, cos our brad only came back to TD this year… weird!![br][br]i love damo tho!! he rocked :slight_smile: and brad was hilarious!![br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak

#17

Yeah ‘from paris to berlin’ and with actions and everything! when ever i want to think of my trip i put that song on and memories of the best night ever in Paris come rushing back.[br][br]We had a wake up song too - ‘have love, will travel’ by the black keys and i just listen to the intro and all the great times rush back![br][br]suggest a wake up song if ur trip leader doesn’t have one… and make them teach u the actions to ‘paris to berlin’

I did spirit of europe aug 08 and our trip song was scotty doesn’t know from eurotrip. much to the chagrin of tl- jodie. our wake up song was spice girls. it’s amazing how once you get home you hearone of the songs randomly and it invokes all these great memories of the trip.


#19

Good trip songs but i want to say that which is latest trip song which have a strong base i didn’t find any good collection if anyone know here than share here back…

I hope so. I went on a Contiki in Europe in 2009 and we had 3 songs … 1 for waking up on the bus, 2 for the day and 3 for partying at night. I still have flash backs now if I hear them and even had the wake up song as my alarm for ages afterwards lol good times ;D
