I'm moving to LA and bringing the family with me.
Trying to come up with a good Playlist of music that evokes the city.

During a visit last year I had LLL's 2016 Beverly Hills Cop release playing while I got (intentially) lost driving around at night. It was one of the more perfect nights of my life.

I've started a list but definitely interested in others thoughts.

Thanks for any suggestions.


Did you ever make it to Los Angeles? If so, which scores accompanied you on your journey?

Should Tom decide to come back, he could start with the Michael Small score to Wagons East.

HEAT is the absolute pinnacle of capturing LA 'vibes', IMO. Especially sunset and night time.

That would be Santa Rosita (Santa Monica), but close enough.

Great choice! It's impossible to be sad with the music of ol' Jerry (Reed) cranked out loud.
