In honor of the great amount of '80s throwback synthpop that I've been listening to lately, I've "written" Drive 2 to create a what-if soundtrack. Bear with me, as I usually don't care for sequels. But this is all in good fun.
|"Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Sequel!"|
Synopsis: Having left his California life behind, The Driver (Ryan Gosling) is now living a low-key life as a part-time mechanic/limo driver in Miami Beach, Florida. Everything is going fine, until he and his boss's daughter are in a bad car accident in a limo he's driving. He escapes with minor injuries, but her face is busted up and some of her ribs are broken. As it turns out, his boss's brother is a crime boss, who has recently returned to the country. The men aren't happy about how she was treated, so they force The Driver to work for them. He does so partly because of what happened to the girl, but eventually he wants to get out and take her with him. To do so, he must take on her father, his brother, and company to ensure their safety.

Now, what songs would be used in such a film? Five notable songs - "A Real Hero" (College ft. Electric Youth), "Nightcall" (Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx), "Under Your Spell" (Desire), "Oh My Love" (Riz Ortolani ft. Katyna Ranieri), and "Tick of the Clock" (The Chromatics) - were used in Drive, so I've throw out seven possibilities down below. These could be combined with Cliff Martinez returning with another brilliant score. Also, this is assuming that the sequel would be done in the same style as the first film.
Here are the songs (in no particular order):
*This last track was used in Nicolas Winding Refn's Bronson, but I think it could fit here too.
