It may be a weird thing to say, but I’m always looking forward to long drives and Metro rides. The reason is this: I’ve compiled a playlist that makes the experience of being on public transportation a little more bearable—even enjoyable! Listen to these songs the next time you’re in transit, and make an otherwise boring trip feel like a scene from a Sofia Coppola movie. You’re the main character, watching the world blur by from a car/bus/train window.
