you can drive my car - fanmix!  
Hey folks, a new fanmix from me. :D

So while I watched "The Real Merlin and Arthur" once more some days ago, I thought 'Why not make a fanmix to this?' and as you can see, I did. It took me however many hours to search for all the songs, to make the covers and to put everything together, but it was definitely fun. The mix is pretty Indie, but there are some songs, like "Life is a Highway" or "Radar Love" that loosen everything a bit. Altogether the songs are pretty happy and chipper, so exactly what you need for a long car drive. Also I create a tiny little picspam that accompanies the mix. I hope you enjoy this entry and if so, please leave a comment. I'm really curious what you think about it. :D

01; The Boy Least Likely To - Saddle Up

It’s time to get back on the road
Saddle up saddle up get ready to go
-
And it’s time for us to saddle up
All I wanna do is settle down settle down and find my tune




02; Lucky Soul - Get Outta Town

Well I know you've got rhythm and I know you've got soul
But there ain't nothin' here for us baby
Gotta get outta town!
We gotta get outta town!




03; The Beatles - Drive My Car

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you




04; Oh No! Oh My! - Walk in the Park

Nice day for a walk in the park.
Nice day for a drive through the city.
This world is a warm, sunny park.





05; The Concretes - On the Radio

I must say it was love from the start
When you gave me a tune to sing




06; Stealers Wheel - Stuck in the middle with you

Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you,
And I'm wondering what it is I should do,




07; Cajun Dance Party - Colorful Life

I'd love to go to a brand new place but recognise the sky,
a brand new motion yet same old people and that's the reason why,
colours and honey are in your eyes as your life flies high





08; Tom Cochrane - Life is a Highway

Life is a highway
I want to ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I want to drive it all night long





09; Camera Obscura - Let's Get Out of this Country

Let’s get out of this country
I’ll admit I am bored with me




10; Canned Heat - On the Road Again

But I'm out
on the road again.
I'm on the road again.




11; Au Revoir Simone - The Lucky One

A dream of togetherness
Turned into a brighter mess
A faint sign my spoken best





12; Golden Earring - Radar Love

I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel




13; Ivy - Get out of the City

Summer days are long and lonely.
Cars are moving slowly.
The streets are filled with air so still.
I'm trying to get out of the city




14; Noah And The Whale - 2 Atoms in a Molecule

Last night, I had a dream
We were inseparably entwined
Like a piece of rope made out of two pieces of vine
Held together, holding each other

Thank you, sweetheart.
I hope you like the songs. My personal favorite is "Saddle Up" by "The Boy Least Likely To" by the way. It's so cheerful and cute. ;)

And have you watched it already? If so, tell me, what do you think about it? Isn't it just awesome to see these two together on a road trip?

It's great to hear that you liked it.
"The Bradley is at the wheel" scene is awesome indeed. I love the frighten look that Colin gives the camera. Just adorable. And I think every single Merlin fangirl would have given her left arm to spend this road trip with these two. ;D

Beatles, Stealers Wheel, and Tom Cochrane
Suezeldona on February 26th, 2010 10:18 pm (UTC)
All of them have to be in a road-trip mix for sure. Otherwise it isn't a proper one. ;D

I'm glad you like it.
