The Drive @ 5

Posted on: August 15th, 2012



For those of us lucky enough to summer on the Jersey Shore, there is nothing better than driving to the beach on Fridays after work. It’s like Christmas Eve, but better. The anticipation of the amazing weekend you’re about the have is almost overwhelming. In order to mitigate some of this excitement, you need to pump your fist to an incredible playlist. So here it is. But first, a note: This playlist is more like a sacred ritual to me. I make the mix, not at the beginning of the summer, when songs seem great, but will shortly become overplayed, but the middle, post-Fourth of July. It includes all the songs from the past year that get me really pumped up, but never made it on to any lesser mix. Also, (in zealot fashion), I listen to the mix every Friday on the way down the shore, and never any other time.So this mix might not be your cup of tea, and that’s fine, but it’s definitely mine, and it’s almost Friday…
