I'm thinking ahead to Los Angeles...
I'm going to assume that the rental car we'll pick up at the airport in Long Beach will have a CD player in it. (I'm hoping it will.) I think this upcoming trek deserves a good, upbeat soundtrack, and I'm soliciting tracks from y'all to include on a mix for driving around Los Angeles.
It *will* have some Thomas Dolby on it.
It *will* have some Michael Penn on it. (I think "On Automatic" would be a great track to start off.)
It *will* have a little English Beat and General Public.
It *will* have Morrissey singing "First of the Gang To Die".
If you have some suggestions for good urban, SoCal drivin' tuneage, let me know.
I'm excited - our little hotel/motel/place to sleep is right next to the crazy stripmall Uzbek restaurant at Sunset and La Brea! (Across the street from Charlie Chaplin's original studio, that became A&M Records, and is now Henson Productions.) Who wants to meet up for Uzbek lunch?!? (Yeah, I'm an idiot - I'm excited about Central Asian food in California. So sue me.)
