The Clydes and Athenas Playlist - Whats on your iPod/MP3 player when you ride?
 
I find it hard to ride without some kind of music in the background. If your like me, what do you listen to? Take out your music player, whatever it may be. Put it into shuffle mode and list the first 5 songs that play. NO CHEATING. First 5 only. If the theme song from Fraggle Rock plays, list it. Maybe we can expand each others musical horizons here.

Here's my first 5:

1. Pantera - Cemetary Gates
2. Descendents - Cant go Back
3. The Raconteurs - Many Shades of Black
4. Jimmy Page & The Black Crowes - Hey, Hey, What Can I Do
5. Queens of the Stone Age - Go with the Flow

Thats it, so simple a fat guy on a bike could dream it up...Oh. I did:lol:

RossThompson 06-15-10 08:42 PM

I'm probably different than most.

In my right ear:
All Christian - Praise
Casting Crowns
Bebo Norman
Sonic Flood
MercyMe
Mark Schultz

In my left ear:
The sweet sound of the V-8 trying to run me down...

wxduff 06-15-10 09:18 PM

Song - Artist (Genre)

Back Against the Wall - Cage the Elephant (Southern Alt Rock)
Phantom Part II - Justice (French House Trance)
Cyanide - Metallica (Metal)
When Broken Is Easily Fixed - Silverstein (Screamo)
Meaning in Tragedy - As I Lay Dying (Metalcore)

I also listen to Classic, 80's and 90's Rock, All forms of techno (not just house and trance), the blues, and more, but five songs and not one of those.

Sequimite 06-15-10 09:28 PM

I've never used shuffle, but took the challenge:

1) If it Makes You Happy - Sheryl Crow
2) Suburban Eyes - Thelonius Monk
3) #41 - Dave Matthews Band
4) Rex's Blues - Townes van Zandt
5) The Animal Trainer and the Toad - Mountain

Love to use the ipod when exercising, never when riding on the street.

I'm probably different than most, including the poster I quote:

Hindemith, Organ Concerto, second movement - Anton Hellier, ORF Symphony
Schubert, Die Schoene Mullerin - Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, baritone; Gerald Moore, piano
Flotow, Overture to the opera "Martha" - Josef Lee Gruber, Vienna Symphony Orchestra
"Humor Say" (Elizabethan lute song) - The Good Pennysworths
Haydn Symphony 94 ("Surprise"), third movement - Thomas Fey, Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra

I hate shuffle for classical. You get a mess like above, with segments of works lifted from their context.

CliftonGK1 06-15-10 11:06 PM

From my current cycling playlist:

Living Sacrifice - 3 x 3 We Carried Your Body
P.O.D. - Addicted
One King Down - Hasp
As I Lay Dying - I Never Wanted
Zao - March

DX-MAN 06-15-10 11:15 PM

My mp3 doesn't shuffle.

So here are the first 5 that come up when I hit "All Songs":

"Forever (Instr.)" -- Queen, A Kind of Magic
"A View to a Kill" -- Duran Duran
"After the Fall" -- Journey
"All Eyes" -- Heart
"Ay Yo" -- Melanie Fiona

Not very representative of the total package, though. Everything from Patti LaBelle to Evanescence, Halestorm to Marvin Gaye, Stylistics to Twisted Sister and Guns n Roses.

I don't want music to disrupt the sound of some cager about to try running me off the road, but do listen on the bus to drown out all the idiots on cell phones who have to talk at a volume that makes a team of 100 vuvuzela players sound whisper quit in comparison. Right now it's cycle 3, so 5 random songs:


Haven't met you yet - Michael Bublé
Does your mother know - Abba
B Bad - Terry Shaw
America - Neil Diamond.
Feeling Alright - Huey Lewis
Dissfunktion - Manteca


Ooops that's six, and yes I know those are all different genres, Big Band, Disco, Bluegrass, Theatrical, Rock and Fusion Jazz. I listen to a little of everything, except Punk and Hip-Hop, neither of which makes any sense to me.

Cycle 1 is mostly Christian stuff and Cycle 2 is Christmas music, Cycle 3 is just about everything else, Cycle 4 is classical and still being developed. I keep them all on the computer, once every couple of months I dump what's on the machine and put the next cycle on it.

mr geeker 06-16-10 12:33 AM

my mp3 player doesnt have a random setting, these were just the first five it played. to be fair, the only time i listen to music and ride is when im on a bike trail (mup).

fog hat - slow ride
primus - piltchers squad
joe diffie - 3rd rock from the sun
daft punk - technologic
queen - bicycle

wild animals 06-16-10 01:21 AM

You guys are a bad influence. I got my new mp3-player phone with external speaker, then I read that other mp3 thread and thought I'd see how it worked for me on the bike. Now I don't want to ride without it. I rove the countryside annoying dogs and pedestrians* for miles around.

"(What it Felt Like to Fall)" by The Robot Ate Me
"Sea World" by The Phoenix Foundation
"En Gallop" by Joanna Newsom
"Sister Golden Hair" by America (lol)
"The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades is Out to Get Us" by Sufjan Stevens

Wish it had been a better cross-section including my not-as-sissy side (my first love is soul music, followed closely by classic black gospel), but NO CHEATING! So there you have it.


*And scaring off bears and mountain lions

I have that playing in both ears :lol:

Seriously, riding with an MP3 player isn't a very good idea. Sorry to be a buzzkill.

I agree 100 per cent. I save the MP3s for after the ride or a stationary bike.

callmeclemens 06-16-10 06:55 AM

Zao!

daffonce 06-16-10 07:07 AM

Yeah I avoid riding with mp3, however i do run with my mp3 player in. but when you run you are either a) on the sidewalk or b) facing traffic so you can see the cars trying to run you down. even riding without mp3 player in hearing cars at a good clip is hard, as is hearing other riders, and i tend to ride in a group doing a paceline so you need to be able to hear.

ziggydcat 06-16-10 09:55 AM

I do agree that riding on the road with headphones on is an accident waiting to happen, I have the luxury of nearly 45 miles of converted rail trails right across the street from me. So lets just call this post "Whats on your MP3 player when you work out and can safely wear it."

Strange mix today:
Willie Nelson - Workin Man Blues
The Stooges - Raw Power
Steve Earle - Copperhead Road
Johnny Cash - Five Feet High and Rising
The Grateful Dead (Dicks Picks #9 Madison Square Garden 9/16/90) - Tennessee Jed <---I was at this show :-)

BigUgly 06-16-10 12:17 PM

If you dig Zao, check out the others on that list of mine. It's my Sunday morning "church music" playlist. :lol: (If only I could find a church with music like that.)

billyymc 06-16-10 01:38 PM

I dont' ride with music either, but here's the first five songs from the current playlist on my shuffle:

Pawn Shop - Sublime
Good for You - Third Eye Blind
Naked and Famous - Presidents of the United States of America
Falling - Staind
The Things That I Used to Do - G. Love and Special Sauce

Nothing too earth shattering.

cyclist2000 06-16-10 02:30 PM

environmental sound effects mostly

I like the sound of me talking to myself inside my head

shmily_dana 06-16-10 04:16 PM

I leave the Ipod on the dresser when I ride. I usually have something by the Beatles, Rush, ELO, Queen, Tom Petty, or Allan Sherman going around in my head as I ride. Sometimes all at the same time.

EGUNWT 06-17-10 09:27 AM

So on my shuffle:
about 10 songs by Cruxshadows (Birthday, Sophia, Winter Born, Quicksilver, many others) Great pounding music.
Flogging Molly (Drunken Lullabies, May The Living Be Dead In Your Wake)
Foo Fighters
Garbage
INXS
Killers
Mew (Special, only song that fits a playlist like this, great band though)
Morningwood (Nu Rock, Nth Degree)
Silversun Pickups
Whigs
Sleigh Bells (New addition, *very* tasty stuff)

Cruxshadows is...heh. Go find lyrics to Birthday and tell me that's not a potential Clyde theme song.

I've been meaning to create a thread on this. I saw someone commuting on a bike this morning with earplugs in.

As much as I'd love the sweet sounds of Fu Manchu to power me up this hill, I just don't think it's safe on a road with any possibility of traffic.

Maybe offroad or on logging roads....

But I know a lot of cyclists ride with earbuds in.

canopus 06-17-10 02:19 PM

When I listen (maybe 20% of the time) these are my faves,

Rush
Foo Fighters
The Offspring
Garbage
Queen
Journey
Smashing Pumpkins
