Music to travel around the world listening to.

So I have spent about two or three weeks reading around the world in 80 days. I would make a post about music that is relative to the mood and setting of the book, but sadly, I dont know about any music that is dull. I'm sorry but around the world wasn't the most exciting thing I ever read, and it mainly consisted of the characters just traveling from place to place. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book... kinda, but it just doesn't have the action, thrill, drama, passion, or moving elements make a book unique. I simply looked at it and said, well this book is essentially about a race around the world against time... even though its not fast... at all... but anyway, here's the song I associate most with racing. 

Tiesto - Louder Than Boom

By the way, I also have a keen interest in foreign music since, well quite frankly, its better than the music produced in these states. Here's a list of music from around the world that i enjoy. BTW these all link to YouTube.

Colombia: Joe Arroyo - La Noche    This man is a genius.

Russia: Aidamir Mugu - Chornye Glaza   The accordion is just amazing. This is the song I grew up to.

Sweden: Swedish House Mafia - One
People who say perfection isn't real simply haven't heard this yet.

France: Alonzo - Determine
[Parental Discretion advised.... this is sick]

Germany: Extrawelt - confuzzled
Its just so chill. This song puts me to sleep really easily.

Netherlands: Armin van Buuren - Shivers
Peace. Pure and simple.


  1. Around The World in 80 Days is probably one of the best books I've ever read. Adventure novels always seem to have this positive effect on me. I'm glad you're enjoying it too. I like the music you picked. They all make sense and they're all from different places. I think ethnic music is so much more interesting than most music here. Don't get me wrong, I love pop and rap. But Bollywood music and mexican rapping is seriously awesome! You should take a look at K-Pop sometime too. Korean music is so fast and upbeat. Anyway, I really like how you've been interperting the book and the music you've decided to apply to it. Also: your blog background is hardcore! From afar I couldn't figure out what it was but now that I see it, that's so cool! I love your blog! I hope you loved reading Around The World In 80 Days as much as I did! Keep blogging :)
