MJR Roadtrip: Smokey Mtns.
so we’ve arrived late at the base of the Smokey Mountains, trading the at&t-reception-less backwoods for the rainy Rt. 40. when you leave the city limits and drive through valleys of forest under a craggy sky, you can breathe in the air and understand the purity of these places.
seeing as music’s as a big of a part of the american roadtrip as anything, we here in the mazda 6 would like to extend to you five tracks from our playlists. put them in any order, enjoy in a car or in your Nikes. crank the volume past the healthy mark.
and here’s the soundtrack from the road.
“footsteps in the dark, part 1: & 2” – eisley brothers
“lay it down” – al green
“night drive” – chromatics
“b.b.e. (big booty express)” – jdilla
“i will possess your heart” – death cab for cutie
“whole lotta love” – led zeppelin
“one way out” – the allman brothers band
“big love” - lindsey buckingham
“about today” – the national
“death and all his friends/the escapist” – coldplay
and now for some pixels.
