It looks like I’ll be able to pick up my new car later today. If all goes well, I’ll be motoring before the sun goes down.
The problem is I’m trying to figure out what the first song to be played in the new Mini should be. Since I’ll have the iPod integration you know there will be a playlist with a variety of appropriate choices. Still, I need that #1 song.
I’ve been thinking about the good “road” songs I can think of (basically the non-California specific songs I used on my “Move West” playlist).
- Where the Streets Have No Name · U2
- Route 66/Behind the Wheel · Depeche Mode
- Drive · REM
- Drive My Car · The Beatles
- Long Line of Cars · Cake
Seeing as Basil is a British bloke, the Beatles seem pretty appropriate. There is also the theme song from Austin Powers. That would be fun.
Of course, I could just pop my recent favorite songs from Of Montreal, Mika, the Shins, and Modest Mouse. I worry they might not stand the test of time, though. Then again, they would always have an anchor to this place and time.
Decisions, decisions. You got any ideas?
