Exams are over and summer has reared its hot head just in time for the holidays. So for Music Monday, why not go for a bit a summer tune?
Driver’s High is one of L’Arc~En~Ciel’s best songs and it was used as one of the openings for Great Teacher Onizuka (GTO). From Ken’s amazing guitar, Tetsu’s wandering bass, Yuki’s frantic drumming, Hyde’s glorious vocals and even the video clip capture the fun and feelings of what summer is about.
The wind blowing through your hair, the sun blazing in your eyes and burning your body as you run wild, that’s what summer is. Summer is about the freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want. Blame the heat if you want to, but its the best time to start acting whacky and crazy.
Summer is about spending time with friends and getting up to hijinks and shenanigans, kinda like the Laruku boys in the MV. Don’t get stuck in the otaku mode of staying home all the time. Go do something different. Go do something fun. And more importantly, go do it with some friends.
Clash! Into the rolling morning! Flash! I’m in the coolest driver’s high!
