[37 tracks from 37 artists spanning a wide range of genres and original release dates. Certainty in you finding new music that you will love; I guarantee it.]
I once found an archive of tracks that someone had uploaded to
with the self-assured title of "Seriously Cool Driving Music."
Upon further review, I found it to be a mere scraping of top 40
tracks from the 21st century, sprinkled with a few
one-hit wonders with laughable replay value. To state my
disappointment succinctly, let me just tell you that
one of the tracks was "Hey There Delilah" by the Plain White T's.
The silver lining to this seemingly wasted bandwidth was that it inspired
me to take a crack at making a similar mixtape with the same goal;
the main difference being that mine would actually succeed.
My years of interest in music caused me to find many tracks
that I am fond of having as driving companions.
Contemplative lyrics, melodic vocals and jamming tunes
that make me feel like dancing in my seat. I can't describe
my taste in music as certain genres because I've found
beautifully organized noise in all of them.
The kind of music I like is "good music."
Short enough to fit onto two CD-Rs (separated by folder), this archive includes
such tracks. One CD is designated for daytime driving
and the other for nighttime driving, though you'll experience enjoyment
in either without regard to if the Sun is out.
