baby, you can drive my car

sometimes i wish i could just get into the car and drive away. preferably a vintage car that isn't prone to mechanical hiccups. or, of course, i could get some mechanical training before, so i could just fix it all in a whizz.

p.s.: i really could do with some new music to cheer me up, i think i may have a little bout of autumn glumness. i have a very eclectic taste - bach and wechsel garland, du chanson francais or indie, i like them all, you get the picture. would you leave me a link or music recommendations in the comments? you are the best!

A convertible ! With a scarf wrapped around your head, those big sunglasses and red lipstick !!!!

MANDY said...

Oh I agree with Marion .... but really I would rather live inner-city and not have a car at all (maybe one day) !!!

'ello everybody, thanks for stopping by and saying hello!

i actually do all my getting-around by (vintage, very vintage) bike. my (t)rusty friend. just sometimes i wish i could just drive away, far away from it all... it's probably a rain-induced blues.

That car is frickin amazing. I think we all have ' i want to go away' moments.

I suggest
Gaslight Anthem
Melody Gardot
Jim Lockey and the Solemn Sun

rain-induced bleh here too.

right, I've been obsessed by florence & the machine forever.

but, should you want something light, cheerie and old-fashioned (feel good) try she & him with zooey deschanel.

for the melancholic days, isobel campbell & mark lanegan.

however... if what you really want is to let out a proper belly laugh (listen to the lyrics carefully but not in compromising company) go for steel panther. be warned.

I love the midnight blue in your latest photos. That's kind of my color. Lately I've been listening to:
Säkert: Facit (in swedish)
Jenny Lewis (both solo and with johnny and rilo kliey)
and Lykke Li has a fantastic song coming up 'Get Some'
