    Favorite song to ride to:

    Ok...we've got the What Are You Listening To thread and the Song Name Game thread.
    But I presume most of us in those threads aren't riding a bike while typing in those threads.

    So, what songs do you like to hear (either in your headphones or in memory) when your cranking away?
    When your just cruising?

    I perfer something with a nice hard beat when I'm cranking away...perhaps AC/DC's Back in Black album.
    Hells Bells in particular.
    Cruising, no real preference, but maybe some Jimmy Buffet.

    Beethoven's 6th Symphony absolute magic. And I'm hardly ever cranking away.

    Just the music in my head.

    Hungry Man - Louis Jordan: Pops in my head towards the end of every ride and most times I sing it out loud.

    Manowar comes up most rides as well.

    The sticks breaking under my tires provide the beat (or perhaps that's the odd cracking noise coming from my BB), the howling wind, and the birds' singing is the only music I hear when I ride.

    That or maybe some Static-X (Push It, Start A War, etc...

    Oh man, it depends.

    Heavy traffic that I can weave thru:
    Long Line of Cars - Cake

    Heavy traffic that is shooting past me, while I try desperately to keep up:
    SpitFire - Prodigy

    Easy Riding:
    Where the Streets have no Name - U2

    Generally Speaking:
    Pushing it hard:
    Prodigy, Fat Boy Slim, Gorillaz, techno in general

    Decent Pace:
    Cake

    Relaxed Riding:
    U2

    Heart of Spring - David Arkenstone. This has to be the most relaxing song ever.

    I've been hooked on Phish's "Divided Sky" lately. But riding songs is a very dynamic subject for me, so soon it'll be something else.

    Cardinals and blue jays.

    I hate it when "Bicycle Race" by Queen gets stuck in my head.

    I'm all over the place. I almost always have a song going in my head and it's usually just a song I've heard on the radio or on a CD recently. Could be anything.

    My brother and I decided a couple years ago on the Michigander that we were going to pass everyone, and go balls out for 50 something miles. I had a MP3 CD that I put on which was about 8 straight hours of Flight Of The Valkaries. That was pretty damn funny.

    Other than that, I like listening to things like Kashmir by Led Zeppelin, A lot of Steppenwolf songs, Where Ever I May Roam by Metallica, or numerous songs by Ted Nugent that to me at least accurately capture the feelings Michigan's outdoors give me.

    when setting out on a ride, i ususally start with "revival never goes out of style" by walls of jericho cuz it's got a driving beat, and killer second half, and always reminds me of growing up in the hardcore "scene" 12 years ago. then i just let the ipod shuffle through the rest of the hardcore on there.
