Songs to Drive Around Los Angeles To- Artist Playlist: Libra
Updated: Apr 24
1) Carly Simon - "Why"
From 1982's movie soundtrack Soup For One. One of my favorite Carly Simon tunes. So cool to drive listening to this song, you should try out!
2) La Femme - "Paradigme"
From this French band's new album, this song slaps. Makes you wanna party inside the car. Turn it loud and drive around.
3) Libra - "Flakey Town (feat. Elyse Cizek)”
"The sun is up and high, the mountains are behind, from my window I see the Hollywood sign," nuff said.
4) Thundercat - "Dragonball Durag"
The 70's RnB just vibing, makes you wanna dance while driving, so cool!
5) Poolside - "Harvest Moon"
This Poolside version of Neil Young's classic "Harvest Moon" is very interesting because it turns a song that has a night vibe into a song that makes you wanna jump into a pool on a sunny day.
6) Seal & Crofts - "Summer Breeze"
I love this song from the late 60's Los Angeles duo. It always teleports me to a day at the beach in my mind. Perfect to cruise Sunset Boulevard all the way to Santa Monica on repeat.
7) The Strokes - "Bad Decisions"
From The Strokes latest album The New Abnormal released in 2020, it channels Billy Idol's classic "Dancing with Myself" and has all the ingredients to be on a playlist designed to drive.
8) Michael McDonald - "I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You're Near)"
Sampled by Warren G on his also amazing “Regulate (feat. Nate Dogg)”, this AOR classic is all you need to drive around sunny Los Angeles.
9) Flying Lotus - "Spontaneous (feat. Little Dragon)"
Super vibey song! Groovie and dreamy at the same time with a super cool production with a lot of classic 70's references.
10) Todd Rundgren - "I Saw the Light"
Classic banger from this great artist. It has a super summer vibe, perfect for driving around LA.
