I'm moving soon to a new city, starting over after a long and lengthy divorce, and have a new job. What are some good songs for the move?

Oh man, do I have the perfect song for ya. A cute litle tune called 'Box Elder' by Pavement. :rockon:

Wasn't the question you asked me
It wasn't the answer I gave
That made me feel like I was on a train
Was a distant voice
Made me make a choice
That I had to get the f___ out of this town
I got a lot of things to do
A lot of places to go
I've got a lot of good things coming my way
And I'm afraid to say that you're not one of them.

Last time I was there
You were out on the couch
Pressed into a little electric 2
It was the way that you smiled
Made me know at once
That I had to get the f___ out of this town
'Cause I've decide to make a stand
And I'm not gonna take your hand
I'm taking the next bus outta here, I'm gonna head for Box Elder, M.O. :guitar: :drummer:

How about Rascal Flatt's "I'm Movin' On" - I love this song.

I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself
I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
I'm movin' on

I've lived in this place and I know all the faces
Each one is different but they're always the same
They mean me no harm but it's time that I face it
They'll never allow me to change
But I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong
I'm movin' on

I'm movin' on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone
There comes a time in everyone's life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone

I sold what I could and packed what I couldn't
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
I've loved like I should but lived like I shouldn't
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
I'm movin' on

I'm movin' on
I'm movin' on
We create our own unhappiness. The purpose of suffering is to help us understand we are the ones who cause it.

"Compulsion" as performed by Martin L. Gore

Charms in limited supply
And refusing to stretch
That indefinable nothing
Somehow keeps pushing you
Finding the right words
Can be a problem
How many times must it be said
There?s no plan
It had to happen

Got to move on sometime
And it?s about time
By putting one foot in front of another
And repeating the process
Cross over the street
You?re free to change your mind
Strength through diversity
Couldn?t have put it more plainly
Got to move on sometime
Got to move on sometime
Got to move on sometime
Got to move on sometime

Charms in limited supply
Under threat of extinction
That indefinable nothing
Somehow motivates you
Finding the right words
Can be a problem
How many times must it be said
There?s no plan
It had to happen

Got to move on sometime
And it?s about time
By putting one foot in front of another
And repeating the process
Cross over the street
You?re free to change your mind
Strength through diversity
Couldn?t have put it more plainly
Got to move on sometime

:puppyeyes:


If you got bliss, I will follow.

I've thought of a few more lighthearted songs:

Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac
50 Ways to Leave Your Lover - Paul Simon
Jive Talkin' - Bee Gees
Highway to Hell - AC/DC

Rush - Vapor Trail

Stratospheric traces of our transitory flight
Trails of condensation held
in narrow paths of white
The sun is turning black
The world is turning gray
All the stars fade from the night
The oceans drain away

Horizon to Horizon
memory written on the wind
Fading away, like an hourglass, grain by grain
Swept away like voices in a hurricane

In a vapor trail

Atmospheric phases make the transitory last
Vaporize the memories that freeze the fading past
Silence all the songbirds
Stilled by the killing frost
Forests burn to ashes
Everything is lost

Washed away like footprints in the rain

In a vapor trail
"I can see for miles and miles"

Wow, I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me
I must be traveling on now, there's too many places I got to see
Cuz I'm as free as a bird now

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' All the Wrong Reasons, is about a girl he knew that moved on. Meatloaf's Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Actually Are is similar, these aren't about the 1st person leading to a new life, but in 3rd person about another's new lifestyle.

Bruce Hornsby "Gonna be some changes Made"

Gonna be some changes made

Can't keep on doing what I've been doing these days

Look in the mirror I see clouds of rain

Gotta face it all, gotta get myself straight

Gonna be some changes, some changes made

Can't keep on doing what I've been doing these days

Better figure out something

Things are looking grave
Gonna be some changes, changes, changes made

Up in front for all to see
Graceful like a bumblin' fool
Then I thought I felt slip from my mouth a little drool
Maybe no one noticed it
On my mind heavily it weighed
I saw two people snickering
I said "there needs to be some changes made"
