Drive

I finally watched Drive. Not at the movies but on a huge screen at a friend’s house.
When I went to watch at the cinema a few days ago, I was alone and the guy at the ticket booth explained that they’d play it if I bought 2 tickets. It seems they pay 10000LL to the municipality for every screening and since tickets are also 10000LL, the only way it would be worth their time was if I paid them an extra ten…
So I went and got it on DVD. Good copy / Played like a charm.
The only 2 problems with this “screener”:
– No closing credits
– Angelo Badalamenti credited for the soundtrack instead of Cliff Martinez!!!

So, go watch it at the movies if you can. It’s really worth it. I will not go into a fully-fledged review:
It’s bit violent with a beautiful cast and some great 80s inspired music.





Download the Full Soundtrack pop it in your car and start driving. Beirut isn’t LA but yesterday night it felt like it.


The songs are also pretty cool in a very “literal lyric”-mode.
Nightcall, the Kavinsky (yes the guy who played Ajram Beach a few years ago) / Lovefoxxx (of CSS fame) was not written for the film but fits perfectly.
But the one that makes you swell up and want to slowdance like it’s 1984 is A Real Hero (feat. Electric Youth)





A real human being, and a real hero,
Real human being, and a real hero,
Real human being, and a real hero,
Real human being, and a real hero,
Real human being,
Real human being,



Talking about Drive, you probably know that REM just called it quits. You’ll tell me: “Why, were they still releasing new music?”
Now, don’t be mean!
I LOVE Automatic for The People. It’s up there with the albums of my teenage years with Blood Sugar Sex Magic, Nevermind, Achtung Baby…
Here’s a link to the Drive video. Weirdly enough, Warner Bros has disabled all the other videos for Lebanon…


And here’s the track in its original version and in the mindblowing live 1994 “funk” Version


And of course, the lyrics. Did you know there’s a whole blog dedicated to deciphering Michael Stipe’s lyrics and he even replied to fans’ questions!!!


Smack, crack, bushwhacked
Tie another one to the racks, baby

Hey kids, rock and roll
Nobody tells you where to go, baby

What if I ride? What if you walk?
What if you rock around the clock?
Tick-tock, tick-tock
What if you did? What if you walk?
What if you tried to get off, baby?

Hey kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby

Hey kids, shake a leg
Maybe you’re crazy in the head, baby

Maybe you did, maybe you walked
Maybe you rocked around the clock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Maybe I drive, maybe you walk
Maybe you try to get off, baby

Hey kids, shake a leg
Maybe you’re crazy in the head, baby

Ollie, ollie
Ollie, ollie, ollie
Ollie, ollie in come free, baby

Hey kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby

Smack, crack, shack-a-lack
Tie another one to your back, baby

Hey kids, rock and roll
Nobody tells you where to go, baby

Maybe you did, maybe you walked
Maybe you rocked around the clock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Maybe I drive, maybe you walk
Maybe I try to get off, baby

Hey kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby

Hey kids, rock and roll
Nobody tells you where to go, baby, baby, baby



I think I’ll end this post with Bobby McFerrin. You probably know Don’t Worry Be Happy. But his album Simple Pleasures was one of the important gifts my uncle gave me along with my electric guitar, and the LPs to Lyle Lovett and his Large Band and Rickie Lee Jones’ Flying Cowboys.
He covers Cream’s Sunshine of Your Love and The Beatles’ Drive My Car. But I prefer this track





Bobby McFerrin – Drive


Gonna get in my car, drive away
Drive so far, no one’s gonna find me
Put my foot on the gas, accelerate
Drive so fast, no one’s gonna catch me…
