Let’s Talk: The best music to commute to?


Written by:

Hey folks. Seeing as it’s monday tomorrow (sorry), I’ve been struggling to find fantastic new work from our glorified music artists in the industry today, so let me know what you are currently listening to on your commute to work. What’s your most comfortable music to listen to? Fast and heavy to wake you up and smell the coffee or the relaxed sounds of podcasts to keep your mind serene in the morning mist. LET ME KNOW!

    Have been listening to a lot of Aphex Twin’s ambient pieces and soothing new age music in the morning 🌄 🎹🎶 I am working from home because we are in a covid lockdown here but it’s OK just been cruising along. I hope you are doing well my friend, big hugs 🤗

    Wow, that’s a tough question. I prefer to make mixes for driving, as opposed to listening to an album front to back. For me, the songs need to be up tempo, along with having good bass lines. What I can’t do is the techno. Here are some songs I’d add to my driving mix.

    Deep Purple – Highway Star
    Avenged Sevenfold – Hail to the King
    Steel Panther – Death to all but Metal
    Iron Maiden – Number of the Beast
    Judas Priest – Heading on down the Highway
    Queensryche – Empire
    Heaven & Hell – Heaven & Hell
    Motley Crue – Bastard
    The Cure – Fascination Street
    Matthew Good Band – Jenni’s Song
    Weezer – Undone (the sweater song)
    The Rentals – Friends of P
    New Order – Ceremony, Age of Consent
    Bruce Springsteen – I’m on Fire
    Flaming Lips – Race for the Prize
    Bon Jovi – Blood on Blood

    An honourable mention goes to Genesis. My family used to drive eight hours to visit my grandparents. My father had lots of driving music in the car, as there was a 350km area where we couldn’t get a radio signal. It was a dead zone. Anyway, my dad had a Genesis concert on tape. I remember it had Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Home by the Sea, and Turn it on Again. Classic stuff.

      Oh now that’s a commendable list, what a smashing music taste! Oh of course, you’re not the only one to relate the best commuting music to their childhoods. That Genesis tape story is fascinating, and is such a fond memory made all that bit better with the addition of music. This is why we love it!
