Roof of Your Car

Album: Computers And Blues (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This song describes the sensation of driving home with thoughts of the good old times. Mike Skinner (aka The Streets) discussed the song as part of a Daily Record track-by-track. He said: "When I'm editing things I try to create the sense of starting a conversation in the middle, so people understand what's being said without the boredom of an introduction. I've sometimes taken that too far, so too much explaining was left out. Hopefully this track gets that balance about right."
