Since the summer is starting to wind down, this is a bit of an interesting question to think about. All three songs that came to mind were for the same general reason as well.
These first two songs, while quite different, bring to mind the life of summer, having a bit of youthfulness and nostalgiac energy to their tones. Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away) especially feels like something more appropriate for the end of summer rather than the beginning – marking what’s already happened instead of preparing for more.
And no, this one wasn’t just because of the title. Or the drugs.
The other that came to mind, which was actually the first to, brings forward a very specific thought – driving around with the windows down, taking in the cool night air and just driving for the sake of driving. Mostly because this album was a common choice of music for that type of adventure.
