    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
    I have officially kicked diabetes ass!!! No more meds, no more needles and only a finger prick every other day.

    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...

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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 :-)

    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

    Nothing too earth shattering.

    environmental sound effects mostly

    I like the sound of me talking to myself inside my head
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    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.

    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.
