And down the road we go! Check last week’s picks so you don’t feel lost!
“The Freeways of My Mind”
By Big Sir
Selected by Geo: This funky track by this funky band will keep us awake with our heads bobbing during the more monotonous stretches of land. As the title suggests: when there’s nothing to stare at, we’ll start to look inward, and then things’ll get really interesting.
“Ain’t No Reason”
By Brett Dennen
Selected by Sarah: ‘People walk around pushin’ back their debts, wearin’ paychecks like necklaces and bracelets.’ This song is beautiful, poignant, and a reminder to live with awareness and purpose. Don’t become a slave to the machine. Be an Urchin.
“Running on Empty”
By Jackson Browne
Selected by Margaret: Okay, maybe it’s a little overused, but it perfectly captures the feel and mood of speeding across the country, passing houses, deserts, farms and the lives of others. As upbeat as ‘Running on Empty’ is, it still evokes that melancholy that only driving cross-country can.
