    Bike related music thread, if you'd be so kind

    I'm listening to Taj Mahal. 'Further on down the road. I don't remember any cold days, just the warm ones with you'.

    I can't help but relate that to biking with main squeeze.

    Any others? Fire off.

    For me it's always been the Eagles "Take it Easy".

    Well, I'm running down the road
    tryin' to loosen my load
    I've got seven women on my mind,
    Four that wanna own me,
    Two that wanna stone me,
    One says she's a friend of mine
    Take It easy, take it easy
    Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
    Lighten up while you still can don't even try to understand
    Just find a place to make your stand
    and take it easy...


    OH WOW.... how could I forget the other one that's been running around in my head the last few weeks for riding..... Charlie Hunter's "Mitch Better Have My Bunny"; it's got a really nice groove.

    Being the age I am, I always go back to the overture to Rossini's The Barber of Seville and Mendelssohn's 4th symphony.

    My cycling playlist of about 250 songs that I enjoy while riding is available for viewing on my profile page. Three come to mind with specific “road” connotations and vivid cycling memories:

    Take Me Home County Roads (John Denver):
    “Almost heaven, West Virginia
    “Blue Ridge Mountains
    “Shenandoah River…”

    Heard in a little West Virginia diner on the second to last day of our eight week cross-country bike tour in 1977 from Los Angeles to Washington DC, as we were two days away from those Mountains and that River, and three days from DC.

    Take it Easy (The Eagles)
    “Running down the road tryin' to loosen my load
    "Seven women on my mind...”

    This song came to mind on the first day of that cross-country trip as we sped down the first switchback mountain pass I had ever ridden, into Lake Elsinore, CA, after finishing my first mountain climb, over the Ortega Highway.

    Running on Empty (Jackson Brown)
    “Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
    “Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields…”

    Heard while driving to the first century ride I was doing in about five years away from long distance cycling.

    A life philosophy for me, but works well to motivate more riding:

    Bicycle Built For Two
    (Daisy Daisy) late 19th/early 20th century

    There is a flower
    Within my heart,
    Daisy, Daisy!
    Planted one day
    By a glancing dart,
    Planted by Daisy Bell!
    Whether she loves me
    Or loves me not,
    Sometimes it's hard to tell;
    Yet I am longing to share the lot -
    Of beautiful Daisy Bell!

    Daisy, Daisy,
    Give me your answer do!
    I'm half crazy,
    All for the love of you!
    It won't be a stylish marriage,
    I can't afford a carriage
    But you'll look sweet upon the seat
    Of a bicycle made for two.

    We will go 'tandem'
    As man and wife,
    Daisy, Daisy!
    'Peddling' away
    Down the road of life,
    I and my Daisy Bell!
    When the road's dark
    We can both despise
    P'licemen and 'lamps' as well;
    There are 'bright lights
    In the dazzling eyes
    Of beautiful Daisy Bell!

    Daisy, Daisy,
    Give me your answer do!
    I'm half crazy,
    All for the love of you!
    It won't be a stylish marriage,
    I can't afford a carriage
    But you'll look sweet upon the seat
    Of a bicycle made for two.

    I will stand by you
    In 'wheel' or woe,
    Daisy, Daisy!
    You'll be the bell(e)
    Which I'll ring you know!
    Sweet little Daisy Bell!
    You'll take the 'lead'
    In each 'trip' we take,
    Then if I don't do well,
    I will permit you to
    Use the brake,
    My beautiful Daisy Bell!

    Daisy, Daisy,
    Give me your answer do!
    I'm half crazy,
    All for the love of you!
    It won't be a stylish marriage,
    I can't afford a carriage
    But you'll look sweet upon the seat
    Of a bicycle made for two.

    No Queen Bicycle Race fans? Or is that too easy?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Bob Seger Roll Me Away Lyrics
    Words and music by bob seger

    Took a look down a westbound road,
    Right away I made my choice
    Headed out to my big two-wheeler,
    I was tired of my own voice
    Took a bead on the northern plains
    And just rolled that power on

    Twelve hours out of mackinaw city
    Stopped in a bar to have a brew
    Met a girl and we had a few drinks
    And I told her what I'd decided to do
    She looked out the window a long long moment
    Then she looked into my eyes
    She didn't have to say a thing,
    I knew what she was thinkin'

    Roll, roll me away,
    Won't you roll me away tonight
    I too am lost, I feel double-crossed
    And I'm sick of what's wrong and what's right
    We never even said a word,
    We just walked out and got on that bike
    And we rolled
    And we rolled clean out of sight

    We rolled across the high plains
    Deep into the mountains
    Felt so good to me
    Finally feelin' free

    Somewhere along a high road
    The air began to turn cold
    She said she missed her home
    I headed on alone

    Stood alone on a mountain top,
    Starin' out at the great divide
    I could go east, I could go west,
    It was all up to me to decide
    Just then I saw a young hawk flyin'
    And my soul began to rise
    And pretty soon
    My heart was singin'

    Roll, roll me away,
    I'm gonna roll me away tonight
    Gotta keep rollin, gotta keep ridin',
    Keep searchin' till I find what's right
    And as the sunset faded
    I spoke to the faintest first starlight
    And I said next time
    Next time
    We'll get it right
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    America
    Simon And Garfunkel

    "Let us be lovers we'll marry our fortunes together"
    "I've got some real estate here in my bag"
    So we bought a pack of cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner pies
    And we walked off to look for America

    "Kathy," I said as we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh
    "Michigan seems like a dream to me now"
    It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw
    I've gone to look for America

    Laughing on the bus
    Playing games with the faces
    She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy
    I said "Be careful his bowtie is really a camera"

    "Toss me a cigarette, I think there's one in my raincoat"
    "We smoked the last one an hour ago"
    So I looked at the scenery, she read her magazine
    And the moon rose over an open field

    "Kathy, I'm lost," I said, though I knew she was sleeping
    I'm empty and aching and I don't know why
    Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike
    They've all gone to look for America
    All gone to look for America
    All gone to look for America
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Spinning Wheels by Blood Sweat and Tears is great, but my current fav is Green Day's Boulevard of Broken Dreams, from American Idiot. In my mind I change the lyrics to these:

    I ride a lonely road
    The only one that I have ever known
    Don't know where it goes
    But it's home to me and I ride alone

    I ride this empty street
    On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
    Where the city sleeps
    and I'm the only one and I ride alone

    I ride alone
    I ride alone
    I ride alone
    I ride a...

    My shadow's the only one that rides beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I ride alone

    Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
    Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

    I'm riding down the line
    That divides me somewhere in my mind
    On the border line
    Of the edge and where I ride alone

    Read between the lines
    What's f'd up and everything's alright
    Check my vital signs
    To know I'm still alive and I ride alone

    I ride alone
    I ride alone
    I ride alone
    I ride a...

    My shadow's the only one that rides beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I ride alone

    Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
    Ah-ah, Ah-ah
    I ride alone
    I ride a...

    I ride this empty street
    On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
    Where the city sleeps
    And I'm the only one and I ride a...

    My shadow's the only one that rides beside me
    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
    'Til then I ride alone...

    I just checked "Bike" from Pink Floyd's first album (Piper at the Gates of Dawn) but it seems it was only included in the UK and not the US release. It's probably on one of the later "Best of" albums. Doesn't really have a beat you can ride to.

    For current motivation Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" is pretty good.

    Is this cycling related titles or stuff we listen to for motivation on the road?

    There's only one for the latter... Freeway Jam

    For the former, I'll have to think on it and get back to you. Hm.

    I sing on a long tour ride when I am by myself and just cruisin the country side - there's nothing better than
    Arlo Guthrie - City of New Orleans

    Ridin' on the City of New Orleans
    Illinois Central, Monday mornin' rail
    15 cars & 15 restless riders
    Three conductors, 25 sacks of mail

    All along the southbound odyssey the train pulls out of Kankakee
    Rolls along past houses, farms & fields
    Passin' graves that have no name, freight yards full of old black men
    And the graveyards of rusted automobiles

    Good mornin' America, how are you?
    Don't you know me? I'm your native son!
    I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
    I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done

    Dealin' cards with the old men in the club car
    Penny a point, ain't no one keepin' score
    Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
    And feel the wheels rumblin' neath the floor

    And the sons of Pullman porters & the sons of engineers
    Ride their fathers' magic carpets made of steel
    Mothers with their babes asleep, rockin' to the gentle beat
    And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel

    Good mornin' America, how are you?
    Say don't you know me? I'm your native son!
    I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans.
    I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.

    Night time on the City of New Orleans
    Changin' cars in Memphis, Tennessee
    Halfway home, we'll be there by mornin'
    Thru the Mississippi darkness rollin' down to the sea

    But all the towns and people seem to fade into a bad dream
    And the steel rail still ain't heard the news
    The conductor sings his songs again
    "The passengers will please refrain:
    This train got the disappea rin' railroad blues

    Good night America, how are you?
    Say don't you know me? I'm your native son!
    I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans.
    I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.

    A Thousand Summers by John Tesh. This was used in ABC's Tour de France television coverage in the 1980s, so I can't help but associate it with cycling:

    I know it makes no difference for the purposes of our discussion, but I loved Steve Goodman and always feel it necessary to give him credit whenever I can (he wrote the song).
