Once in while, the CNN Travel braintrust blows it -- make that all the time if you happen to be @cnnalwaysblowsit47.
Such was the case last year when we published our updated list of the greatest travel songs ever recorded. Sure, we included a few unassailable classics about life on the travel trail.
Even @cnnisamoron231 couldn't rage against our inclusion of Willie Nelson's all-time sing-a-long "On the Road Again."
But we have to admit, once in a while, @iloathecnn and @cnntroll99 have valid points to make.
How exactly did we miss such obvious wanderlust ditties as the Allman Brothers Bands' "Ramblin' Man" and Kris Kristofferson's "Me and Bobby McGee"?

Simon and Garfunkel — America
I like Getaway Car by Hall & Oates ;)
i was just listening to it:
Led Zeppelin’s Trampled Under Foot
I was surprised that “Travelin Man” by Ricky Nelson was on the list. It should have been but surprised that it was.
Hot Rod Lincoln - Commander Cody
Dave Dudley’s ‘Six Days...’ One of the greatest songs ever written.
“Highway Star” by Deep Purple.
Born to be Wild.
Chris Rea ~ The Curse Of The Traveler.
Don’t forget his “Lost Planet Airmen”.
That one has been done by a lot of people but Commander Cody’s was probably the best.
Slow Ride by Foghat
Eastbound and Down
Nelson Riddle’s theme song for the TV series “Route 66” was really good. I don’t know if there are any words to the tune.
100 bottles of beer on the wall
