Wednesday Question: Best Song for Vacation
7

With this year's vacation season up and running, we figured we give this week's Wednesday Question a bit of a holiday spin. Here goes:

What's the best song for a vacation?

THE RULES:

  • Post only one suggestion per comment after checking that your favorite wasn't already nominated (Ctrl+F and all).
  • Multiple nominations of one song create heavy confusion, since on one hand it's unfair to the given track to take into consideration only the most upvoted nomination, but seeing that multiple nominations allow one user to give two or more votes to the same tune, it's also unfair to other nominees not to discard it.
  • Vote up the ideas you support and vote down the ones you dislike.
We'll sum up your votes by Friday and bring you another traditional UG top list. Show us what you got now!

    Not sure why I posted that crappy video of the song. Here's the real one lol my bad. Fly Away by Lenny Kravitz

    Dude, "Holiday Road" by Lindsey Buckingham! Doesn't get more on-the-nose than that! 😄

    Was just talking about this song last weekend with a friend (big Fleetwood fan) who never knew that was Lindsey.

    The Ventures - Wipe Out ...as well as many other great surf rock songs!

    311 - Amber A lot of 311's songs are great for summer, but I personally like this more
    N-D
    SpongeBob SquarePants OST (I think, almost all - a lot of great relaxing Hawaiian and surf songs)  
    N-D
    Cypress Hill - Tequila Sunrise Perfect song to meet the dawn
    Mountain Trash

    I went there last year and it kicked ass... Mexicans are cool people and have the best food ever!
    N-D
    Fun Lovin' Criminals - Love Unlimited Their funky sound is sooo great - and this song will give you smooth mood!

    I personally don't like this song very much, but definitely Alice Cooper - School's Out is a clear winner...
    N-D
    Smash Mouth - All Star It's obvious, but anyway - cool song
    N-D
    Kid Rock - All Summer Long Yes, it's actually a remake of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama", but anyway it defines the summer mood)
    N@trium
    Don Henley - Boys of Summer (Honestly, the Atari version is probably better for this list, but power to the writer!)
    N-D
    Crazy Town - Revolving Door Nice relaxing tune...

    I can't believe all these songs you're posting have 0 downvotes. Especially this one. Seems fishy...
    N-D
    I expected a lot of downvotes for Crazy Town and No Doubt too

    Bob Marley - Three Little Birds

    Why would anyone down vote a Bob Marley song when it comes to relaxing vacation summer songs? They all work for the most part. Just bring Legend and your good to go. Period.
    N-D
    No Doubt - Hey Baby I know it's almost a pop song, but for me it's almost perfect for summer mood)
    N-D
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - Give It Away I love its funky sound!
