Desire – “Under Your Spell”

I, like many people, saw the movie Drive this weekend, because I, like many people, love Ryan Gosling. I’m not gonna spoil anything, but Baby Goose wears a scorpion jacket and kicks ass at doing so.

Speaking of kick ass, the score was great. It’s a poppy electro-80s score by Cliff Martinez, with a couple added gems…like this one by the band Desire. They’re a half French Canadian half Portlander mix who combine French and English lyrics to make awesome tracks. Also, the lead vocals on this track sound a little Zooey Deschanel esque…but with a more unique backing underneath.

Despite this song being in a party scene during the movie, I highly recommend it for driving, particularly at night, or for staring longingly out a window.

Lastly, this song is from 2009. Which isn’t necessarily new. But guess what? It’s new to me, and it’s my birthday and I do what I want. Listen below.

  1. this song was so epic during the party scene in the movie. you can fell her conflicting emotions with her husband coming back, guilty, and also wanting to be with Driver…
