Well, dear readers, this is the final week before the Urchins hit the road. Here is our final installment of songs, so we hope you continue to enjoy our picks!
By Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Selected by Geo: This song is special to me because it was the very first Yeah Yeah Yeahs song I heard. I’ve always thought of this song as the embodiment of pure independence. Therefore, I present to you a road trip song with attitude.
“Pride and Joy”
By Stevie Ray Vaughan
Selected by Margaret: No road trip mix is complete without a good case of the blues and one of the best guitar slingers of all time: Stevie Ray Vaughan. This is one of my favourite songs, by the way.
“Crown on the Ground”
By Sleigh Bells
Selected by Sarah: Since I’ll be missing their concert during the road trip, I thought it only fair that Sleigh Bells make it onto the playlist. This is the song that made me fall in love with them. Perfect for, as one YouTube user put it, ‘giving white kids an excuse to amp up the bass in their civics.’ Hey! It’s a Malibu!
