It’s Immaterial- Driving away from home (Wicked Weather for walking)

Liverpool based band It’s Immaterial, who formed in the 1980s, became/were recognizable for their varied assortment of musical styles ranging from new wave to blues to synth-pop. They are probably best known for the original version of this track, Driving Away From Home (Jim’s Tune), which reached the top twenty in 1986 and has since featured on TV ads and numerous ‘80s compilations. This version, with the story-telling lyrics half-spoken, half-sung over a softer melody, creates an almost hypnotic effect which perfectly captures the sensation of being on a long car journey.
