I thought it would be fun to read other responses to this because I love listening to music and learning of new music. I will start this and hopefully get some great replies and new music to listen to.
I didn't listen to music all the time but I did listen a lot and I absolutely started my walk every morning with this song. My walk in 2018 was my dark night of the soul journey of faith basically. I truly felt led so this is the song I started mornings with:
Leonard Cohen
I also will say I had the sound track to the movie "The Way".

From O Porto in September.
I'm trying to learn Portuguese so I have light Portuguese music with me. It kills the earbugs and helps me learn.

I didn't listen to music too frequently on Camino. When I did it was mostly pop music, gangsta rap or a Spanish 'disco' playlist. There were a few times when I felt my music was inappropriate Camino lol. On those occasions I switched to a Japanese Buddhist chant playlist and specifically this piece, Heart Sutra which is one of the most beautiful things to exist.

Great choice, and I also had The Way soundtrack 👍
I’ll come in with a few I listened to

Proclaimer…I’m gonna be (500miles)…it was almost like it was written for the Camino 🤣
Donnie McLean…Caledonia
Mudhoney…In N Out Of Grace
The Who…Behind blue eyes
Willy Mason…Oxygen
Willie Nelson…On the road again
Lou Reed…Perfect Day
ELO…Mr Blue Sky

I don’t listen to a lot of music but these are just a few of my walking favourites when I need a wee boost

I preferred to hear the music of where I was. So I listened to cowbells, birdsong, and cuckoos.
I too NEVER listen to music when I am walking on the Camino. No podcasts, no telephone, nada! I want to feel the earth and wind, the wind against my face, hear the sounds around me, even if it is a highway and the smells even if it is cows**t fertilizer.

I haven't listened to a lot of music on the camino, but one time I was listening on a particularly long flat stretch alongside a quiet highway that Brierly called a "soulless senda". (Not that I felt it was soulless.) This song came up in my shuffle rotation and it was such a thrill. I'd gotten it from somewhere and hadn't really paid attention to it before but it sure got my attention when the words "Hay tantos caminos por andar" came up. That means "There are so many caminos to walk." The name of the song is "Andar Conmigo", "Walk with Me."


I highly recommend Julieta Venegas, a Mexican singer. She has some wonderful songs.

I love this song.

I’m doing my first Camino in September and I guarantee that when I put in my headphones, if I put in my headphones, it will be the interstellar soundtrack

Though I am not a big listener while actually walking, I know many do enjoy it. I've always thought that Andreas Vollenweider's music would be very pleasant to walk to, such as tracks from his "Down to the Moon" album. "White Winds" too is wonderful.

What a lovely song. Thank you for sharing! I will be adding this to my play list.
Music is such a huge part of my and my family's life that when I start walking in 4 weeks, I have asked the dear ones in my life to give me 5 songs for my camino playlist. I plan to think of each person with love and gratitude as I listen to their songs. So far, they range wildly in style- from classic rock, Mozart, Italian crooners to a 15 year old boy's techno Phong. They all make me smile.
I don't plan on listing to music all the time, but I anticipate moments where I will enjoy it.
Buen Camino!

While walking my various caminos, I listened to the music of everyday - the people, the places around me.
I have since enjoyed a lot of music based on (the) Camino to Santiago, for example:
Dum Pater Familias, by John Eliot Gardiner. I like to imagine bands of pilgrims of ancient times tramping along, with the rhythm of it keeping them going...
Elmear Quinn with Carlos Nuñez singing and playing Yann Derrien - a story of a young man urged on to Santiago by the spirit of his mother, to pray for her soul there...
And how could I omit the Chieftains, Santiago.
and now I add a link to something I kept since the start of the year, just rediscovered it - Did I find it here? Never mind! Hope you like it.

I'm working on a playlist myself. I saw Leonard Cohen in concert 12 or so years ago - he was 74. Many of his songs are (I accidentally posted at this point, EDITED TO ADD: so many of his songs would be apprpriate to the Camino; he was a very spiritual person, a seeker, for instance, "Anthem":

"Ring the bell that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in ..."
I didn't listen to music while I walked but if I had it would have been "This too shall pass " by Tyler Stenson, and "Never give up" by Olivia Newton John.
I was also thinking about Tyler Stenson's "Best Laid Plans," which ends the wonderful film, "Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago."
