LA’s snotty punk band Fuck It Dog Life’s A Risk (more commonly abbreviated to FIDLAR) sent us this playlist, titled: “Songs Brandon Sings Along To When Trying to Stay Awake While Driving Home By Himself After A Night of Partying”. He explains:
“sometimes you drive to a party, then get more fucked up than you planned and you’re broke so you don’t have money for a cab, so you drive yourself home and sing songs as loud as possible so you don’t pass out in the car or die.” -Brandon Schwartzel, FIDLAR
Check out the liner notes to the road-tested sing-alongs below, and subscribe to the playlist on Rdio. [ed. Don't drink and drive, though.]
Frank Ocean: “Super Rich Kids”
I’m a sucker for some smooth R&B and this song is the shit. Earl Sweatshirt’s verse is super tight as well.
San Diego roots brah! Steering wheel banger.
Black Lips: “Bad Kids”
Perfect song to be fucked up to.
A$AP Rocky: “Peso”
Even though A$AP ruined the Vice Party we were supposed to play, this song is dope. Clams Casino killed it with the track too.
Elton John: “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”
Elton John writes great songs. One of my favorites.
Wu-Tang Clan: “C.R.E.A.M”
The Flaming Lips: “Do You Realize??”
Flaming Lips are fucking inspiring. So this song inspires me to get home alive so I can try to make some cool shit when I get there.
The Band: “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”
This one has rad harmonies that I try to sing at top volume and probably fuck up. Super good song.
The Walkmen: “The Rat”
A good screamer.
Sam Cooke: “Smoke Rings”
this is when you get close to your house and smoke a cigarette while parking. The comedown track.
