To rev everyone up for the final race of the 2016 Red Bull Global Rallycross season, we threw a party at Bluebeam headquarters. Pizza, beer, root beer floats, slot car racing, slightly smaller than lifesize cardboard cutouts of Joni and Sebastian… it was an elevated kickback, and I’d like to think that my meticulously crafted playlist helped set the tone.
Behold! The #bluebeamrally Ultimate Driving Playlist, packed exclusively with songs about cars, driving, racing, engines, backseats and speed.
Okay, technically, this is a party playlist designed to chart the course of a three-and-a-half hour shindig. It starts out bouncy and welcoming as your guests arrive, builds up to high gear for when the drinks kick in, then transitions into slow jams when you subtly want to tell everyone that it’s time to hit the road. That said, I’ve personally tested this playlist for a day of coast driving from Santa Barbara to Orange County, and it lives up to its name.
If you have miniature backseat drivers in your car, this can be made kid-friendly by simply nixing “Fuel”… and come to think of it, “Greased Lightning.” (Have you ever really listened to the words? Holy lyrical content John Travolta!)
Hope you enjoy it! Hit us up if there are tunes we’re sorely missing.
