Baby Driver is a masterpiece.
For us at LPM, it’s what a modern day musical should be like. An audio delight for music nerds, genius director Edgar Wright managed to choreograph every movement in the movie beat by beat to the killer soundtrack. The scenes and music play exactly in sync, as the protagonist, Baby, absolutely needs to listen to the right song on his iPod for everything he does. Can you imagine speeding away in a getaway van after a bank heist listening to one of Chopin’s Nocturnes? Quite preposterous, if you ask me.
For music fans, listening to the right music for the right tasks makes a world of difference. It gets you into the groove, such that even an arduous marathon (best paired with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s “Can’t Hold Us”) can literally feel like walking on sunshine. As Wright puts it, “When life starts to sync up with your soundtrack, it’s a magical moment.”
To get you into the right moods for different types of work, we’ve compiled playlists to accompany you through the most mundane and repetitive tasks, help you focus on the task on hand, and get your creative juices flowing. Check them out on Spotify!
