Summer Drive Mixtape Project: 9&10
First off, I got a record high for hits today, so a big thanks to all the readers and all the sites who linked here! Okay, we're up to tracks nine and ten now, I know I keep saying I'm going to put in a few night driving songs... just not yet. Hah! There's a good chance a good bit of you will either know song nine, song ten, or both songs already, but they're some of my all-time favorites and I couldn't bear not including them.
[MP3]: Beulah :: Silver Lining
There's no way that the bassline in this song was not written specifically for driving in a car, it's just too perfect. Everytime those horns start blarring and the guitar picks up real hard in the chorus, I find my self speeding up way too much without even realizing it.
[MP3]: The New Pornographers :: Letter From An Occupant
The New Pornographers, along with Beulah, have written some of the greatest pop songs in recent memory and this on stands alone on the top of the mountain, teaching all other pop songs what to do, because it did everything right. Oh yeah, it's good for driving too. But you don't need me to tell you that, do you?
And since I couldn't be more in love with The Pipettes right now, here's a brand new photo of Becci, Rose, and Gwenno! Looks like it might be from an album sleeve photoshoot? Either way, Rose is still beautiful.
