I’ve been a huge fan of “On The Road” trips for most of my life. Since my early excursions around europe in the late 80s with other teenage friends after a whole year of school up to more challenging recent travels in the desert. What I particularly dig about these kind of trips is they’re more like a state of mind than else. Travelling around with just a rough idea on the destination, stopping wherever you feel like stopping whenever you feel like it, the sense of exploration, the freedom. Last but not least, listening to loud music while driving for miles….
Here are three tracks, not necessarily related to the road trip theme but they definitely remind me of some fantastic road trips I’ve gone through so far….
First one is a 33rpm slowed down digital version of Dolly Parton’s Jolene. Way more atmospheric (and much better) than the original track.
Second one is “If I had A Heart” by Fever Ray. I truly believe this track speaks for itself…
Eventually it’s Raz Ohara’s “El Zahir” because it always sets the mood.
