This blog was supposed to be one album per day, every day for a year. Obviously I’ve done a bad job of listening to an album every day. However, this is the first time that I’ve been so completely obsessed that I’ve been listening to music, but not listening to anything different for more than a day. On Saturday after seeing the movie in theaters for a second time I bought the Baby Driver Soundtrack, and I’ve been listening to it any chance I can get since.
It’s astoundingly good. The first time I saw the movie, I was pleasantly surprised when I realized I heard Kashmere Stage Band playing. And I think I might have fallen out of my seat if it didn’t recline when the very next song was one of my favorite by Dave Brubeck (Unsquare Dance). This is a soundtrack to a movie about driving cars with, arguably, the best car driving song of all time on it (Radar Love), and the rest of the songs are so good I forgot it was even in the movie.
I honestly can’t recommend the soundtrack or the movie highly enough. Go see it, and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
