Those two songs from Drive

I’ve gone on about this film and its Taxi Driver inheritance for far longer than is polite, so let’s just get to the soundtrack.

Katyna Ranieri’s vocals were just haunting on that piece that played during the mask bit,  but I’m betting these are the two that haven’t quite left you since you saw Drive.

Over the opening titles, Kavinsky’s Nightcall, featuring Lovefoxxx.

I’m giving you a night call to tell you how I feel
I want to drive you through the night, down the hills
I’m gonna tell you something you don’t want to hear
I’m gonna show you where it’s dark, but have no fear

There’s something inside you
It’s hard to explain
They’re talking about you, boy
But you’re still the same

And during the scene where the Driver/child/Irene dynamic plays out, A Real Hero by College, featuring Electric Youth.

Water warmer than his head so cool
In that tight bind knew what to do
And you have proved to be

A real human being and a real hero
