YES! You guys ready for another classic mix from yours truly? We’re hitting the road this weekend, next stop Chicago, All aboard the Allen train! We’re looking forward to seeing tons of old buddies and getting out of the house. You know I needed a road trip jamz to accompany us on our journey. This ones a good one, full of lots of midwestern bands and one midwestern record. Enjoy.
Continue after the jump for my Spotify playlist!
Great mix! Obviously, Chicago road trip mixes are personal things, but for me, at least one or two songs from Sufjan Stevens Come on Feel the Illinoise are essential. In particular I recommend Come On! Feel the Illinoise!” (Part I: The World’s Columbian Exposition – Part II: Carl Sandburg Visits Me in a Dream) or as a second option “Chicago”. There is a line in Part II that I try to use as a guide to writing: “are you writing from the heart?” It works wonders.
