Music to Drive Around To

My friend PJ drives an elderly volvo, the air conditioning in which is somewhat, shall we say, shy. It works sometimes, but it's sort of bashful and retiring and has to be cajoled. So generally PJ leaves the air conditioning to its wall flower self and just drives around with the windows down.

The thing about about muggy summer window-down driving is that it requires a special soundtrack. Every summer he starts looking for good driving tunes. He won't see this blog...but these are my suggestions. Just sort of for posterity.

Why are these in all caps? Not really because I mean them so emphatically. I just did some sloppy cutting and pasting, and here we go.

WHERE I’M FROM, DIGABLE PLANETS
DAFT PUNK IS PLAYING AT MY HOUSE, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM
BEAST OF BURDEN, ROLLING STONES
MODERN GIRL, SLEATER-KINNEY
BABY C’MON, STEVEN MALKMUS
SUPERSONIC, BASEMENT JAXX
SPORTING LIFE, THE DECEMBERISTS
HAITI, ARCADE FIRE
ANOTHER TRAVELIN’ SONG, BRIGHT EYES
YOU’RE SO VAIN, CARLY SIMON

Also, just in general: most anything by David Bowie or Johnny Cash.
