Drive Your Ass Home
This week is the week I’ve looked forward all semester, but unfortunately this gluttony-fill holiday is also filled to the brim with driving, waiting in traffic, and hating your family. I’ve handpicked these tunes from the depths of my terrible taste. So relax, put on this playlist, and drive your ass home.
1. “Boy Racers” by Metronomy off Love Letters
This first song is from the British artist Metronomy, giving a slow growing groove that would give anyone’s head a twitch. This song is one of my favorite to drive to, eat turkey, and passively aggressive respond to kin.
2. “Ghost Town” by The Specials off Stereo-Typical: A’s, B’s, and Rarities
Cruising out of this ghost town to a familiar, food-scented holiday, leave your problems within the ghost town. This song may have no idea what, or where it wants to be, but The Specials bring an eerily jam for you to wear your engines pistons
3. “Watermelon Man” by Herbie Hancock off Head Hunters
My first experience with this song was in my youth after the holiday on a day of black repute, and it was no dispute that this track has always stuck with me. Early in the morning on this day in a Saturn the color of a forest we slow-rolled ourselves to great plunder.
4. “Stylo (feat. Mos Def and Bobby Womack)” by Gorillaz off Plastic Beach
If you’ve never heard this song, and seen the coinciding video, well get on it. It will make you turn up this track, and imagine Bruce Willis chasing you down within some good old fashion American muscles on this day of American totalities and turkey causalities.
5. “Electricity” by Avalanches off Since I Left
