Drive live

The director, writers and stellar cast deserve no end of credit for creating Drive. But the soundtrack was key to crafting the film’s mood. Such a deliberate and nuanced piece of work needs its musical counterpart, and in several instances, the songs complete the picture.
Longtime composer (and early Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer) Cliff Martinez wrote the original score, and there are songs by a number of contemporary ’80s revivalists.
