    I am usually singing (in my head):
    Doors - Roadhouse Blues
    Stones - Get Off My Cloud
    John Lennon - Instant Karma
    or any variety of Red Hot Chili Peppers songs.

    Not really songs about bicycling, but they are catchy:)

    Dance of death is an excellent album . Now that Adrian Smith is back in the band I think the level of song writing has gone up a couple of notches....Great stuff.
    I took an Emperor Cd "Lay thorns on my grave" on a ride today . I had to wait for the bunch at the top of nearly every hill.. Lol! That's nice fast stuff.
    Great to see there's other metalhead riders.

    I also vote for Kraftwerk's Tour de France. This album captures the true spirit of cycling and exalts man's capacity of beautiful efficiency. It is also musically superior to all prior nominations.

    Ministry: Bad Blood

    Try that one on when you're hurting on a long climb.

    Ahhh, Ministry. I like burning inside. Another great climbing song. We'll need some seconds to get it on the list.

    I think I want propose "Eric B and Rakim's" "I ain't no joke", I really like this one (esp. the sample from "the JB's (James Brown) "Pass the peas". I'm putting this on up just to get a rap song on the list. Any seconds?

    I still want to get some music from other genres on the list, which is BTW.....

    Cake - the Distance
    Bush - Machine Head
    James Brown - Living in America
    Kraftwerk - Tour de France
    New Order/Orgy - Blue Monday
    Tom Cochrane - Life is a highway
    Manowar - Wheels of Fire
    Riders on the Storm -The Doors
    Flight of the Valkyries - Wagner


    I'm still playing with the short list. If you make several suggestions, I'll pick what I personally think is the best and put it on. If I think a songs good enough without a second I'll put it on. If you think I'm out of my mind for what I've included or excluded, lobby me. I'm pretty easy to convince....

    Still having fun with this,
    L

    Pretty much anything by The Cars - not the deepest music ever made, but it's always up tempo and good traveling music. Great for keeping the cadence up.

    Golden Brown, the Stranglers.


    Sunrise, still late summer morning, magpies singing to the dawn, dew licking everything it touches and light peircing every living thing with its warmth, tempo climbing the inclines around the channon, far North coast, NSW Australia.
    Pure soul .

    Utah: This is a great idea. Once the list is complete, you should mix a CD and sell copies. I can already tell you that I want one.

    You should try Fu Manchu's 'King Of The Road'. The whole album is great. I listen to it alot while riding, either car or bike. Especially: Hell On Wheels ("Hell on wheels ain't no big deal, roads burning all across the land...") and King Of the Road ("King of the road sez' you move too slow...") :cool:
