“What Do You Do It For?” by Lou E

I recently started to drive, and I’ve been enjoying the physics of music plus speed plus direction. This song is on a playlist I made specifically for the car. On my first solo drive I suddenly realized I had never been in a moving car by myself before, and in that moment it became clear how isolating the act of driving can be. Music makes that void more navigable.
