What is Frank's best song about travelling? This is definitely a strong contender along with Pan American Highway, Fast Man and California Bound.

Great lyrics - reminds me of the sort of depression you feel after doing some travelling and returning to the real world.

Also amazing guitar solo and some nice organ work by Eric!

Great songs Maharal, Fast Man has really grown on me over the years.

Others I'd include are San Antonio TX, My Favourite Kiss and Out of State.

I think Fast Man is one of his best. That falsetto kills me.

I hadn't thought about Pixies - Motorway a great shout.

There are so many. Pure Denizen Of The Citizens Band makes traveling sound irresistible.

The Modern Age certainly brings out the civilising aspects of travel.

Been thinking about Silver Snail a lot lately, it could be the anti-travel song. Very deliberate pacing, you can almost see the trail of slime.

I could picture Les Claypool covering it.
