Bitch: A Feminist Response to Pop Culture - - TRAVEL -

Tracy Chap­man “Fast Car”

“You got a fast car/ I want a ticket to any­where/ Maybe we make a deal/ Maybe to­gether we can get some­where/ Any place is bet­ter/ Start­ing from zero got noth­ing to lose/ Maybe we’ll make some­thing/ Me my­self I got noth­ing to prove”

Te­gan and Sara “Hop a Plane”

“I took the train back/ Back to where I came from/ I took it all alone, it’s been so long, I know/ Imag­ine me there, my heart asleep with no air/ Beg­ging ‘Ocean please, help me drown these mem­o­ries’ ”

Jour­ney “Don’t Stop Believin’ ”

“Just a small town girl, liv­ing in a lonely world/ She took the mid­night train go­ing any­where/ Just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit/ He took the mid­night train go­ing any­where/ A singer in a smoky room/ A smell of wine and cheap per­fume/ For a smile they can share the night/ It goes on and on and on and on”

Gla­dys Knight & the Pips “Mid­night Train to Ge­or­gia”

“L.A./ Proved too much for the man/ He couldn’t make it/ So he’s leavin’ the life he’s come to know/ (He said he’s goin’)/ He said he’s goin’ back to find/ Ooh, what’s left of his world/ The world he left be­hind/ Not so long ago He’s leavin’/ On that mid­night train to Ge­or­gia/ Said he’s goin’ back/ To a sim­pler place in time/ Oh, yes, he did”

Lana Del Rey “Ride”

“I hear the birds on the sum­mer breeze/ I drive fast, I am alone at mid­night/ Been try­ing hard not to get into trouble/ But I, I’ve got a war in my mind/ So, I just ride, just ride/ I just ride, I just ride”

Frank Ocean “Swim Good”

“I’m about to drive in the ocean/ I’m a try to swim from some­thin’ big­ger than me/ Kick off my shoes and swim good, and swim good/ Take off this suit and swim good, and swim good, good”
