R&P: Break free! What are your favourite songs about 'escape'?

It's Friday, bear with me, I'm looking to escape from the pressures of the work week. OK, here we go... One need not be Harry Houdini to seek out a means for escape. Us mere mortals, need to break free and escape every now and then from the daily grind and hard realities of our everyday world. Escape - from societies ridiculous pressures, a job, a bad relationship - or simply into our imaginations. Escapism is an essential component of some of the best music. Hey, what is transcendence if not escape? MQ: What are some of your favourite songs that reference and/or about 'escape'? ..Any genre, and interpret 'escape' as you wish. A few of mine...

Queen's I Want To Break Free of course. My last musical escape was last night when I covered my wall with corrupt CDs and DVDs while listening to the whole Black Parade album.
