Sometimes when I'm planning a trip a song comes to mind as an appropriate representation of the trip. This is kind of hard to explain what I mean without offering up an example. One I clearly remember was when I was planning on going to Russia the obvious song was Back in the USSR. In that case it wasn't bad at all, I really like The Beatles and it's a good track. The obvious one for my planned travels after my placement is of course Holiday in Cambodia by the Dead Kennedys. Again, pretty cool. For my placement though, the obvious song (as many people have already pointed out) is One Night in Bangkok which has got to be up there in terms of 80's cheese. Still, it fits so well that it can't not be the song. If anyone knows of any songs about Laos please let me know.
