Summer Drive Mixtape Project: 7&8



Again, sorry I keep getting these up so late. I had to an immense amount of cleaning that I could have been doing very sparingly all day long, but I decided to cram it all into one hour. Anyway, I'm here now and oddly enough, just like the two previous posts, these are good songs for a summer drive. Am I sensing a pattern? Alos like the last four songs, these two bands and songs are very very different, but there's more than one genre of music that makes me happy in the car.

[MP3]: Belle and Sebastian :: Legal Man
In the first opening seconds of this song, if you just sit back and listen close, it almost feels like it the starts of a car race and the driver's are starting their engines and then just like that they're off heading out of the city and into the sunshine. Not only is this a perfect driving song, it's also kind of my summer anthem.

[MP3]: At The Drive-In :: Rolodex Propaganda
At The Drive-In is one of those bands where I listen to nothing else like them, but for some reason love them to death. If you'll pay attention to the chorus, you'll notice that there's a voice singing "manuscript replica," but it doesn't sound like any of the other vocals. The reason it sounds different is because it's actually Iggy Pop. Wild Huh? Quick rundown: lots of energy + Iggy Pop = good (driving) song.

I love making driving around mixes! I like to go with a lot of variety though. Some of my favorites (which may or may not be your "taste":

-"Keep On Goin"- Yonder Mountain String Band

-"Nowhere to Run"- Martha and the Vandellas

-"Letters From an Occupant"-The New Pornographers (I know you said you were gonna use a Mass Romantic song... I love this one on the road)

-"Let's Get Out of this Country"- Camera Obscura (I don't think this album has actually been realeased yet... great song though)

-"On Your Own"- Blur

But ultimately the two greatest driving songs are "Running on Empty" by Jackson Browne and "Truckin" by The Grateful Dead.

Anyway I'm really enjoying this- keep it up!
