Mobility/Guide Dog training Soundtrack

Updated with one song I thought of, and to suggest that you check out the comments.

I think it would be a good idea to put together a soundtrack for mobility or Guide Dog training. Here are just a few songs I'd suggest.

  1. The Way: Fast Ball

  2. Where were they Going Without Ever Knowing The Way?

  3. Walk the Line: Johny Cash (especially for those times when you need to parallel traffic.)
  4. Midnight Train To Georgia: Gladys Knight and the Pips (especially for night routes or public transportation practice).
  5. Sound of Music: From the movie of the same name (When you need extra rural practice)

  6. The Hills Are Alive With The Sound of Music

  7. I Can See Clearly Now: Johnny Nash (For obstacle clearance practice, or the most sadistic of sighted mobility instructors)

  8. I can see clearly now the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way.

  9. Help The Beatles (When learning to get assistance, or in need of clarification from your instructor)

  10. Country Roads: John Denver (for sidewalkless practice)
  11. Takin' Care of Business: Bachman - Turner Overdrive (Leash Relieving)
  12. Nothin' But The Tail Lights: Clint Black (The drop off route)
  13. Just a Closer Walk with Thee When you need reminders to "follow your dog."

Alright, now it's your turn. What do you think fits? If you have other suggestions, add them to the comments. If possible, give the title of the song and the author/performer. If it's not obvious from the title, add a snippet of the song to justify your choice. Finally, if you need clarification on something I suggested, ask. If you're still totally confused about mobility, let me know.

On the Road Again by Willie Nelson. For those newly blinded individuals who want to get out and start traveling again. I haven't heard of all of these, but I love the idea!

I have a suggestion...
"Raindrops Keep Fallin' on my Head" by Hal David/Burt Bacharach (for those days when you must venture out in the inclement weather)

"Do You Know the Way to San Jose?" by Dionne Warwick (for those trips out-of-town or getting lost?)

"You can look but you better not touch" by Bruce Springsteen (a working dog's got to do - what a working dog has to do)

"I fall to pieces" by Patsy Cline (we all get upset from time-to-time)

"You'll never walk alone" by Rodgers and Hammerstein

"Bless the Beast & Children" by The Carpenters

"Coffee Song" by Frank Sinatra

I'm gonna be (500 miles) by The Proclaimers!!

I think this is a good one. It's about walking and would be a good one for guide dogs.
