Soundtrack for Trip #13: Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina

imgres-1Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina are not only famous for launching some famous bands like R.E.M., the B-52's and Hootie and the Blowfish but they are also famous for inspiring some truly memorable tunes. Here's a list that runs the gamut from extolling the virtues of the romantic south and it's alluring charms, to songs by artists who were influenced by these states in which they were born and raised. We've also covered a few themes like peaches and flight. Once again, here's a list to get you started. Feel free to use this as a starting point and add or subtract to put your own original spin. I'd love to hear your suggestions if there's something you think we've missed.

  1. I also sometimes like the more alternative side of Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina music. Bands and songs like Dillon Fence “Frances”, Johnny Quest “Dialogue”, Candy Pig “Nonsense”, Collective Soul “The World I Know”, Daughtry “Home”. A nice wide selection of great artist from those 3 awesome southern states. I also love your choices Alisa.

    Thanks, Morgan
