Drive OST (2011)

I had to post at least one track from the soundtrack to the movie “Drive” – there was no way to avoid one of the coolest soundtracks ever put together for one of the most talked about movies of this year. It was always going to happen.

I picked this one because of the lyrics.

“There’s something inside you
It’s hard to explain
They’re talking about you boy
But you’re still the same”

It features in the opening credits to the movie and says to me, “this mild-mannered mechanic you see before you is not as harmless as you think he is” – of course, before you even know he’s a mechanic, the hide-and-seek opening sequence of the movie has already taken place.

It’s a slick and stylish film, featuring a fantastic soundtrack, Ryan Gosling and a shiny scorpion bomber jacket (see inset picture). I do find it quite funny though, that someone is trying to sue the production studio because it isn’t the car-chase action driving movie that’s allegedly portrayed in the trailer.

Oh yes – the song:

Kavinsky – Nightcall

Very retro.
