So one thing that I find kind-of sort-of maybe not so bad about a car commute? The radio. At home radio listening revolves almost exclusively around NPR, so I only listen to other stations when I’m in the car, which, up until six months ago, was almost never. I lost touch with the latest pop music (maybe not a huge loss?). Biking is plenty of fun without the radio.
I fall into the “channel surfer” category when it comes to the radio. I flip channels during commercials, DJ blathering, songs I dislike, and songs that clash with my mood. That adds up to a lot of channel surfing. Total radio ADD. I imagine being in the car with me would be QUITE annoying. Sometimes I manage to annoy myself, and I just have to pull the plug.
Anyhow, I have a couple of favorites at the moment. While driving home the other night, I heard all three of them back-to-back! Yeah, that was a good drive. Without further ado, my top three, in no particular order:
- All the Right Moves – OneRepublic
- Breakeven – The Script
- Young Forever (i.e., the Forever Young Remix) – Jay-Z and Mr. Hudson
No doubt that I’ll tire of these and move on to other songs of the moment before too long.
