Ecco le 45 canzoni che un Exchange Student non può non conoscere!

1 – I LIVED | OneRepublic

Hope when you take that jump, you don’t fear the fall
Hope when the water rises, you built a wall
Hope when the crowd screams out, they’re screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs, you choose to stay


And I hope that you don’t suffer but take the pain
Hope when the moment comes, you’ll say…
I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived

2 – BUON VIAGGIO (Share The Love) | Cesare Cremonini

Coraggio lasciare tutto indietro e andare
Partire per ricominciare
Che non c’è niente di più vero di un miraggio
E per quanta strada ancora c’è da fare
Amerai il finale


Non è importante dove
Conta solamente andare

3 – EMPIRE STATE OF MIND | Jay-Z feat. Alicia Keys

In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New York

4 – WELCOME TO NEW YORK | Taylor Swift

Walkin’ through a crowd, the village is a glow
Kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats under coats
Everybody here wanted somethin’ more
Searchin’ for a sound we hadn’t heard before
And it said
Welcome to New York
It’s been waitin’ for you
Welcome to New York, welcome to New York

5 – PARTY IN THE USA | Miley Cyrus

Jumped in the cab,
Here I am for the first time
Look to my right and I see the Hollywood sign
This is all so crazy
Everybody seems so famous

6 – TI PORTO VIA CON ME | Jovanotti

Se guardi si vede lontano
Tutti i colori li vedi più forti
Adesso che sai che ci siamo
Come filmare un scena
Per dire chi siamo su un altro pianeta
In questa parte di mondo la strada finisce
Comincia la vita.

7 – OUR STORY | Mako

This is our story, that we could take back some day
Our lonley glory, that we could get back they say

Through the curtains of the waterfall

But I’ve got memories and travel like gypsies in the night

11 – THESE DAYS | Rudimental feat. Jess Glynne, Macklemore & Dan Caplen

Leaving to find my soul
Told her I had to go
And I know it ain’t pretty
When our hearts get broke


I hope someday
We’ll sit down together
And laugh with each other
About these days, these days
All our troubles
We’ll lay to rest
And we’ll wish we could come back to these days, these days

12 – IT’S TIME | Imagine Dragons

And now it’s time to build from the bottom of the pit, right to the top
Don’t hold back
Packing my bags


It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand
I’m never changing who I am

13 – BEST DAY OF MY LIFE | American Authors

I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high I touched the clouds


I’m never gonna look back
Woah, never gonna give it up
No, please don’t wake me now
This is gonna be the best day of my life

14 – ON TOP OF THE WORLD | Imagine Dragons

I’ve had the highest mountains
I’ve had the deepest rivers
You can have it all but not til you move it


I coulda gave up then but
Then again I couldn’t have ’cause
I’ve traveled all this way for something

Now take it in but don’t look down

‘Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ey
I’m on top of the world, ‘ey
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ey
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ey
Take it with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child
I’m on top of the world


And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down
And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground
Get up now, get up, get up now

15 – CRAZY | Lost Frequencies

I will give them every part of me
Put my heart where everyone can see

They can call me whatever they want
Call me crazy
You can call me whatever you want
But that won’t change me
I just don’t care what the world says
I’m gonna make it
They can call me whatever they want
So what if I am crazy

Oh Lord
This is so much harder than I thought
But I will give them everything I’ve got
One day I am gonna prove them wrong

Oh Lord
Let me be the one to set them free
I will give them every part of me
Put my heart where everyone can see

16 – COMING HOME | Sheppard

I’m coming home tonight, I know you’re ready for the sparks to fly
Into the morning
Oh my god, my town is coming alive
‘Cause I’m coming home tonight


There’s nothing like a sunset skyline
To let you know you’re almost home
So breathe in, and hold tight


Time has a way of diluting emotions
But I won’t let distance get in between us, no

17 – OUR ADVENTURE | The Long Valley

This is our adventure, this isn’t our goodbye;

It’s only the beginning and time is on our side,

We can send a postcard.

We’re living in our own little Hollywood

We’re washed up stars, everything’s got me good

We got everything we need in our neighborhood

No fancy cars, everything’s got me good

19 – CASTLE ON THE HILL | Ed Sheeran

I’m on my way
Driving at ninety down those country lanes
Singing to “Tiny Dancer”


And I’m on my way, I still remember
This old country lanes
When we did not know the answers

20 – HOPELESS WANDERER | Mumford And Sons

Left a clouded mind and a heavy heart

But I am sure we could see a new start

So when your hopes on fire

But you know your desire

Don’t hold a glass over the flame

Don’t let your heart grow cold

I will call you by name

I will share your road


But hold me fast, hold me fast
‘Cause I’m a hopeless wanderer
And hold me fast, hold me fast
‘Cause I’m a hopeless wanderer
I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I’m under
And I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I’m under
The skies I’m under

21 – FAST CAR | Tracy Chapman

You got a fast car

I want a ticket to anywhere


Any place is better

Starting from zero got nothing to lose

Maybe we’ll make something


Country roads, take me home

To the place I belong

West Virginia

Mountain mamma, take me home

Country roads

23 – CHICKEN FRIED | Zac Brown Band

Well I was raised underneath the shade of a Georgia pine
And that’s home you know
Sweet tea pecan pie and homemade wine
Where the peaches grow


It’s funny how it’s the little things in life that mean the most
Not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There’s no dollar sign on a piece of mind this I’ve come to know

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I’m coming home to you

While I’m high off my American (American dream)

And we don’t always say what we mean

It’s the life of an American teen

My youth is the foundation of me

Living life as an American teen

26 – MEANT TO BE | Bebe Rexha feat. Florida Georgia Line

Who knows where this road is supposed to lead
We got nothing but time
As long as you’re right here next to me, everything’s gonna be alright

If it’s meant to be, it’ll be, it’ll be
Baby, just let it be


Been a lot of places
I’ve been all around the world
Seen a lot of faces
Never knowing where I was

On the horizon
Oh, well, I know, I know, I know
I know the sun will be rising
Back home


Made a lot of changes
But not forgetting who I was


Don’t forget where you belong, home
Don’t forget where you belong, home
If you ever feel alone, don’t
You were never on your own
And the proof is in this song

I’ve been away for ages
But I’ve got everything I need
I’m flicking through the pages
I’ve written in my memory
I feel like I’m dreaming

Oh, so I know, I know, I know,
I know that I’m never leaving
No, I won’t go


Short days when the nights are long
When I think of the days I’ve gone

Don’t matter how far I’ve gone
I’ll always be around

28 – NEVER BE ALONE | Shawn Mendes

Take a piece of my heart

And make it all your own

So when we are apart

You’ll never be alone

Goodbye brother, hello railroad
So long, Chicago
All these years, thought I was where I ought to be

But times are changing

30 – RIVERS AND ROADS | The Head and The Heart

A year from now we’ll all be gone

All our friends will move away

And they’re going to better places

But our friends will be gone away


Been talking ’bout the way things change

And my family lives in a different state

31 – SEE YOU AGAIN | Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth

It’s been a long day without you, my friend

And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again

We’ve come a long way from where we began

Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again

When I see you again


First you both go out your way

And the vibe is feeling strong and what’s

Small turn to a friendship, a friendship

Turn into a bond and that bond will never

Be broken and the love will never get lost

And when brotherhood come first then the line

Will never be crossed established it on our own

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?

Everything I went through you were standing there by my side

And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

When that line had to be drawn and that line is what

We reach so remember me when I’m gone

32 – I’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU | Hannah Montana

I always knew this day would come

We’d be standing one by one

With our future in our hands

So many dreams so many plans

Always knew after all these years

There’d be laughter there’d be tears

But never thought that I’d walk away

With so much joy but so much pain

And it’s so hard to say goodbye

But yesterday’s gone we gotta keep moving on

I’m so thankful for the moments

So glad I got to know you

The times that we had I’ll keep like a photograph

And hold you in my heart forever

I’ll always remember you


Another chapter in the book

Can’t go back but you can look

And there we are on every page

Memories I’ll always save

Up ahead on the open doors

Who knows what were heading towards?

I wish you love I wish you luck

For you the world just opens up

But it’s so hard to say goodbye


Everyday that we had
All the good all the bad
I’ll keep them here inside
All the times that we shared
Every place everywhere
You touched my life
Yeah one day we’ll look back
We’ll smile and we’ll laugh
But right now we just cry
Cause it’s so hard to say goodbye

Se le canzoni non bastano, scopri come vincere la nostalgia di casa quando sei un Exchange Student 

33 – TIME OF OUR LIVES | Tyron Wells

This is where the chapter ends

A new one now begins

Time has come for letting go

The hardest part is when you know

All of these years, when we were here

Are ending, but I’ll always remember

We have had the time of our lives
Now the page is turned
The stories we will write
We have had the time of our lives
And I will not forget
The faces left behind

It’s hard to walk away
From the best of days
But if it has to end
I’m glad you have been my friend
In the time of our lives


We say goodbye
We hold on tight
To these memories
That never die
We say goodbye
We hold on tight
To these memories
That never die

34 – I WAS HERE | Beyoncé

When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget

I was here, I lived, I loved, I was here
I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark, soul, everyone will know, I was here

I wanna say I lived each day, until I died
You know that I, been something in, somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched
Will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference
And this world will see


How do I say goodbye to what we had,
The good times that made us laugh outweigh the bad
I thought we’d get to see forever but forever’s gone away
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

I don’t know where this road is going to lead
All I know is where we’ve been and what we have been through
If we get to see tomorrow, I hope it’s worth all the wait
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

And I’ll take with me the memories to be my sunshine after the rain

It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday

36 – GOOD TIMES | All Time Low

When we laughed
When we cried
Those were the days
We owned the nights
Locked away
Lost in time
I found the nerve
To say that

I never want to leave this sunset town
But one day the time may come
And I’ll take you at your word
And carry on
I’ll hate the goodbye
But I won’t forget the good times
I won’t forget the good times

37 – HOME | Phillip Phillips

Hold on, to me as we go

As we roll down this unfamiliar road

And although this wave is stringing us along

Just know you’re not alone

‘Cause I’m going to make this place your home

38 – COMING HOME | Diddy

I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Tell the world I’m coming home

Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday

I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes

I’m coming home, I’m coming home

Tell the world I’m coming

I’m back where I belong, yeah I never felt so strong
(I’m back baby)

I feel like there’s nothing that I can’t try

And if you with me put your hands high

If you ever lost a life before
This one’s for you

And you, and you, and you, and you

I’ll be home soon

40 – PASSPORT HOME | JP Cooper

You’re my passport home

My guiding light

My hand to hold

Oh, don’t you know that you’re my passport home

41 – GOOD OLD DAYS | Macklemore feat. Kesha

We’ve come so far, I guess I’m proud
And I ain’t worried about the wrinkles around my smile
I’ve got some scars, I’ve been around I’ve felt some pain,
I’ve seen some things, but I’m here now
Those good old days

You don’t know, what you’ve got
Till it goes, till it’s gone
You don’t know, what you’ve got
Till it goes, till it’s gone

I wish somebody would have told me babe
Someday, these will be the good old days

42 – HALL OF FAME | The Script

Don’t wait for luck
Dedicate yourself and you can find yourself

Standing in the hall of fame
And the world’s gonna know your name
‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame
And the world’s gonna know your name
And you’ll be on the walls of the hall of fame

You could go the distance
You could run the mile
You could walk straight through hell with a smile
You could be the hero
You could get the gold
Breaking all the records that thought, never could be broke


How you ever gonna know if you never even try?


Just a small town girl
Livin’ in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin’ anywhere
Just a city boy
Born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train goin’ anywhere


Don’t stop believin’

Hold on to the feelin’

Streetlights, people

44 – AND WE DANCED | Macklemore feat. Ziggy Stardust

And we danced

And we cried

And we laughed

And had a really, really, really good time

Take my hand, let’s have a blast

And remember this moment for the rest of our lives

45 – HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL| High School Musical

Looking forward from center stage to graduation day

Time to get the future started!

What we leave, what we take with us

No matter what, it’s something we’re apart of!

We learn to fly, together side-by-side

I just hope the rest of my life

Will feel as good as my

High school musical

Who says we have to let it go?

It’s the best part we’ve ever known

Step into the future

But hold on to high school musical

Let’s celebrate where we come from

The friends who’ve been there all along

Just like

Our high school musical!


Someday we’ll be looking back, memories we’ve had

All the songs that we lived through!

The best of times, so why leave them behind

Why can’t the rest of my life

Be like my

High school musical
