This is a universal experience, right? Or at least a universal American experience (we do love our cars!)? The weather is warm and sunny, you get out your car, you roll down the windows, you blast music and just drive. And my question is, what music do you listen to?
Two years ago, I moved to a new apartment the first week of June. Which involved driving my car back and forth and back and forth and back and forth as I brought boxes and cleaning supplies and so on and so forth. And the song that kept me going through all those backs and forthses was the incomparable “Kerala Manninayi”
The year before that, my parents were hosting a massive party at the lake house on Saturday and told me I had to come up and help. Only a new Shahrukh movie was coming out on Friday. So I stayed up until 1am seeing the movie and writing the review, and then got up 5 hours later to drive to Wisconsin, and just for kicks I played the soundtrack of the movie along the way. Which is how I fell in love with the Jab Harry Met Sejal soundtrack, especially this song, “Hawayein”
And of course Yo Yo, always Yo Yo. I bought a “best of” CD from him which is the only CD I keep in my car at all times. He really writes the best “car songs”.
