10 Travel-Inspired Music Videos That Will Spark Your Wanderlust

ANGELA MCLEAN

Justin Bieber – ‘I’ll Show You’

In need of some travel inspiration? Look no further than music videos. Whether you’re looking to explore Canada or go beyond, artists have long been using their music videos to showcase the world’s most beautiful locales. Not only are they guaranteed to give you the travel bug, they’ll also add to your itinerary by highlighting can’t-miss attractions, cozy hotels and spectacular outdoor landscapes.

Press play and don’t wait a minute longer to hit “confirm booking.”

 

“Come On Down” by High Valley

Canadian country rockers High Valley extend an open invitation for you to visit their hometown of La Crete, A.B. in this live performance video. Spots to look forward to include the “one stop light and a Dairy Queen / Saw mills, farms, refineries.”

 

“Lost In Japan” by Shawn Mendes and Zedd

Add this to the list of reasons why it’s always good to say yes to travel: Shawn Mendes might just fall in love with you. OK, maybe not exactly, but we’re big fans of the possibility of falling in love with a new city and new person at the same time.

 

“The Nights” by Avicii

Life is too short to spend it in one spot—just ask videographer and “professional life liver” Rory Kramer. With a YouTube travel channel and MTV series under his belt, he clearly knows how to “venture far beyond the shores,” a line borrowed from Avicii’s inspiring house hit. The late DJ-producer’s viral music video for the track features a collection of clips from Kramer’s world-spanning adventures, including some touching shots with his dad. Ending with the challenge to “live a life you will remember,” it serves as a great reminder of travel’s ability to enrich your soul.

 

“I’ll Show You” by Justin Bieber

This Purpose single produced a beautiful music video (also directed by Rory Kramer) that features stunning Icelandic scenery. Set amid lush greens and dramatic waterfalls, the Biebs runs free and lives in the moment—something he doesn’t often get to do living in the spotlight. It’s definitely one of the megastar’s most vulnerable vids and will inspire a peaceful getaway of your own.

 

“End Game” by Taylor Swift featuring Ed Sheeran and Future

As if this song wasn’t already epic enough, T-Swift managed to pull together all her famous friends to live it up in Miami, Tokyo, and London. Maybe we don’t have access to a yacht or Lamborghini, but we can try our best to be bougie for an Insta story with the squad.

 

“We Got The World” by Icona Pop

You may recognize this female duo from when they opened for One Direction (RIP) on tour in 2015, or this song from its appearance in Pitch Perfect 2. The playful music video takes you on the road with Icona Pop as they travel from city to city playing sold-out shows and just having a blast. It’s enough to make you want to grab your pals and embark on a multi-city road trip right this second.

 

“Restart” by Sam Smith

There’s no better way to move on from pain and heartbreak than going out and living your best life, as Sam Smith and his band do in this video. With clips from Glastonbury and Parklife and afternoons at the beach, is February too early to be getting hyped for summer festival season?

 

“You And I” by Céline Dion

Can it get any more Canadian than a video shot entirely at Toronto Pearson International Airport? Catch us at one of the departing gates tomorrow morning with a Tim’s coffee in hand.

 

“The Anthem” by Kardinal Offishall

For Torontonians, this is the quintessential ode to home. Haven’t made your way to the 6 yet? You should need no more convincing—Toronto has it all. Be sure to watch for the shot of Much HQ at the 0:24 mark!
