Behind the Wheel


(This isn’t me. Yet.)

As long as I have to be in the car, I’m going to enjoy myself.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a classical-music-in-the-morning guy. It is by turns soothing and invigorating. Combine a bit of soaring orchestral or chamber music with an open roof (or top down on the convertible) and a beautifully cool morning and you’ve got a recipe for a wonderful start to the day. Besides, it’s fun to watch the reactions of other drivers when I pass them playing Mozart, say, really loud. Commuting never seemed so luxurious. At least until I employ a driver….

The midafternoon often finds me singing along to now “classic rock” (what we called modern rock in the 80’s) or some Bossa Nova.

Evening, well, evening drives are always accompanied by cool school jazz or American Standards. All that crooning about starlight in the eyes, with the sky glimpsed overhead and the moon on the rise, is just perfect. It’s funny, I remember those drives to dinners vividly. And I’m always in black tie. It occurs to me that that can’t always be the case. I guess it just makes me feel that way.

What is your favourite driving music?
