The Sunday Drive - 12/04/2022 Edition
👋🏻 Hello friends,
Greetings from Saratoga Springs, NY!
Let's take it easy and enjoy this edition of our leisurely Sunday Drive around the internet.
The Vibe of the Week is Let's Dance, the title track from David Bowie's 1983 hit album. In addition to being a truly iconic song by a truly iconic artist, it features some truly amazing musicians, including Stevie Ray Vaughan (lead guitar), Nile Rodgers (rhythm guitar), and Omar Hakim (drums). On top of that, the vibe of the tune is just... cool. I hope you dig it.
