* "I Will Go the Distance" from ''WesternAnimation/{{Hercules}}'' is a song about Hercules leaving home for the first time to discover his roots and his purpose after years of being treated like a freak for his godly strength.
* "Journey to the Past," an inspirational ditty from the animated film ''WesternAnimation/{{Anastasia}}'', deals with trying to gather up the courage to leave one's old life and enter into the new. The commercial single for the song was recorded by R&B artist Music/{{Aaliyah}}, but the film version of the song was performed by Anastasia's voice actor Liz Callaway.
* The song "Way Out West" in ''WesternAnimation/AnAmericanTailFievelGoesWest'' is sung by mice leaving overcrowded, crime-ridden, and cat-filled New York City to settle the western US. Fueled by [[TheVillain Cat R. Waul]]'s pie-in-the-sky propaganda, it's overblown and optimistic to ridiculous degrees...but it's not all that different from actual "Go West" propaganda of the era. Upon arrival, the mice immediately realize that the Old West isn't what was promised to them, but they remain hopeful and make a go of life there anyway.

* "The Wisconsin Emigrant" is about an argument between a farming couple over whether or not to emigrate to start a farm in Wisconsin or remain at home. The family is doing poorly on their current land and the husband wants to start anew in Wisconsin, while the wife counters with several reasons to stay put. Ultimately, the wife wins after bringing up "Indians who murder in the night" and presenting the scenario that the entire family gets unceremoniously killed.
