I was talking to a friend of mine the other day about dumb songs that enter our heads while we're
riding 'in the zone'. He considered for a moment, and said that he often hears 'Alouette', the
French children's song, going through his head when he's rolling easy. I had Hall&Oates 'Private
Eyes' in my nut during a stiff climb Saturday, but I'll often fabricate the strains from 'The Sound
of Music'. Regularly, I listen to jazz, rock, and punk. Go figure. I blame the lycra. What do you
guys hear?

And here I thought you were going to say soul coughing...

although having circles in your head probably makes you spin smoothly :)

Jon Bond I don't need to walk around in circles walk around in circles walk around in circles walk
around in...

Thinking of circles in the mind, i had "windmills of your mind" stuck in my head for a while last
year on the bike, but have surpassed myself by getting the old Christmas thing "Gaudete" stuck there
last night while driving to Connecticut (and back!) Fecking thing wouldn't go away....

While riding Friday I was thinking "What a great place to make a mountain bike video." (East of
Salida, CO). "What music would I put with it?" Being a victim of effective advertising, Blur's
"Song 2" ( you'd know it if you heard it) popped into my head. Wishing to perish that thought as
quickly as possible, I tried to think of the song most opposite to "Song 2" that I could. I should
be careful what I wish for. Henry Mancini's "Days of Wine and Roses" (you'd know it too) was the
next song that popped into my head. And It Wouldn't Go Away! Hope this doesn't happen to you.
Yesterday I saw two kids walking back from their busted-a$$ jeep in the same area. One had a Papa
Roach t-shirt. It was "Last Resort" for the rest of that ride. Music fit the ride. Can't say the
lyrics did though, me being about two decades past my disaffected teen years :)

Cheers, Shawn

I hear a lot of Bob Marley when I'm on casual ridearounds, surf guitar if it gets more interesting.
On bombing downhills, I just prefer to bellow out Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyres" at the top of my
lungs. :)

I sometimes try to get a song stuck in my head that's around 90 bpm. Unfortunately I haven't really
done enough research, so I wind up with the funk classic "Money," some lame U2 song about saying
goodbye, or if I'm lucky, Jurassic 5's "What's Golden," which I'm getting a little tired of.

This week, I have mostly been hearing Clocks, by Coldplay, in my head. However, usually I'll try and
have a bit of RHCP or Ben Folds. Sometimes I have to force it cos otherwise I end up singing the
Shania Twain song I heard on the radio several hours before.

That's the risk you take when listening to the radio on the way to the trail!

Not even! Seriously, I've driven two hours to trails with my own choice of music, but had the
Buggles' 'Video Killed the Radio Star' come back to haunt me after I heard it at breakfast.

Yes, that song has that effect.

The British Government were experimenting with it in secret at Porton Down after WWII as a form of
psychological warfar, you know.

I seem to keep catching The Beta Band on the changer on my way to the trail.

Sometimes KISS pops in my head. Sometimes Matt Johnson. Sometimes Boz Scaggs. Sometimes Fat Boy
Slim. Sometimes Johnny Cash or Wall Of Voodoo (Ring Of Fire). Sometimes Sheryl Crow or Steely
Dan....The list has no end ....No tellin' what the hell may pop up in my mind.....I look forward to
it every ride.

Peace, Bill The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a reflector, that is, the mind
should give an immediate view instead of an interpretation of the world.
