Long dark car ride of the soul

I'm working on a new playlist, called "Long Dark Car Ride of the Soul."

Inspiration comes from Sean Higgins (Cheverus '03), who described Underworld's dubnobasswithmyheadman as a perfect cd for those car rides at night, when the world is still and sleeping, when everything feels a little bit off but a little bit right too.

I'm trying to get a playlist together for such rides, or evoking the same feelings in me. I'm trying to avoid anything too vocal, anything too fast, anything too swinging.

So far, I have:
"Everything in Its Right Place", Radiohead, from Kid A
"At the River", Groove Armada, Best of Groove Armada
"Be Quiet and Drive {Far Away)" (acoustic), Deftones, Little Nicky Soundtrack
"Tongue", Underworld, dubnobasswithmyheadman (Possibly include "Dark & Long" from same CD, but would like to avoid Underworld overload)
"Precession", Jaya, Essential Selection Volume One (disc 2), mixed by Paul Oakenfold
"PVC IV", Blue Man Group, Audio
"Lethal Industry", DJ Tiesto, In My Memory
Suggestions?

I think the CD I told you about that would be appropriate was a free one I got with some magazine, because I can't find it on Amazon. It's called Chill: A Sublime Mix of Modern Jazz, Funk and Soul. Kind of artsy-fartsy, no? :)

Ooh, I like the idea! I will have to get me a copy of this disc when you are done with it.

my 2 cents:
DJ Shadow - Blood on the Motorway
is worthy of inclusion. However, I mean nothing by the title of my suggestion! :)
