When you still have hundreds of kilometers to go, and you’re propping up your eyelids with your free hand, snowflakes that come at the windshield through the dark begin to look like falling stars after a while.
Here are the songs I can’t listen to right now, but do anyway:
Don’t Look Back in Anger – Oasis
Nantes – Beirut
On Call – Kings of Leon
Paper Planes – M.I.A.
Silent Sigh – Badly Drawn Boy
Hungry Heart – Bruce Springsteen
For What It’s Worth – the Cardigans
Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me) – Erasure
Boots of Spanish Leather – Bob Dylan
Just Like Heaven – the Cure

Really like your site and the content. Some tracks that keep me awake when driving:
Spacemen 3 – Revolution, Roovel Oobik – Kidstuff, Buzzcocks – I Dont Mind, Nick Cave – O’malleys Bar (when I pick up hitch hikers only), LCD Soundsystem – Someone Great, Big Youth – Ride On, Sleepy Sun – White Dove, Magik Markers – Taste.
Work for me and I have dozens of Riga trips under my belt from snowy Tallinn. Good luck and keep up the writing – excellent stuff.
Oooh, is it snowing where you are? 😀
Thanks for the music, Paul. I have no idea who you are (should I? I’m bad with names), but your site is very pretty. 🙂
Yes, it was snowing on and off last night on the way from the West and into Kiev. 😀
