    Let's build the ultimate touring compilation CD

    So the idea is for everyone to post one song they thing would be perfect for the ultimate touring compilation CD. I"m thinking jam bands and songs that talk about particular cities would be ideal.

    I'll start.

    Going Down The Road, Feeling Bad by the Grateful Dead
    Going down the road feeling bad
    Going down the road feeling bad
    Going down the road feeling bad, bad bad
    Don't wanna be treated this a way

    Going where the water tastes like wine
    Well I'm going where the water tastes like wine
    Going where the water tastes like wine - yes I am
    I don't wanna be treated this a way

    All right now I'm mad,my computer has no sound and I love the grateful dead.
    But those lyrics sound a little like Canned Heats,Going up the country.

    "I'm going up the country where the water taste's like wine.
    I'm going up the country where the water taste's like wine.
    You know I'm gonna jump in and stay drunk all the time."

    Schubert's "Das Wandern" (To Wander). As one English translation puts it.... "a man must have a feeble mind who'd never leave his work behind and wander."

    Actually both the Grateful Dead and Canned Heat are ripping off Woody Guthrie, who ripped off older folk artists.

    Anyway, I'm putting together a mix for a tour. The "Essential" bit is about 600 songs, but if I had to pick one from the top 10 or so most played, it would be:

    "Truckin' My Blues Away No. 2" by Blind Boy Fuller.

    On some days it just seems appropriate and gets stuck in my head.

    I have a fairly large music library, about 15,000 songs. I am listening my way through it randomly, and adding tracks to a biking playlist.

    I love the Run Lola Run (Lola Renet) soundtrack for riding fast.

    A little cliche - but its gotta be on the CD:
    I was born the son of a lawless man.
    Always spoke my mind with a *** in my hand.
    Lived nine lives
    gunned down ten.
    Gonna ride like the wind.

    And I got such a long way to go.
    To make it to the border of Mexico.
    So I'll ride like the wind.

    Spooner, the 80's called, they want to take back that whole Chris Cross mistake.

    first thought:

    Mr. Breeze - Lynyrd Skynyrd

    most of my music is on vinyl, so I have to carry it in my head.

    Grateful Dead is often on my internal mental playlist, whether on the bike or not.

    The title track on Houses of the Holy is good riding music. Actually any Led Zeppelin is good riding music.

    Hey,I have couple of Mississippi John Hurts cd's.
    I love them.
    But I guess you can't go wrong with Robert Johnson's "Walking blues".

    Theres not much about the road in the song but there is alot about traveling.

    I was worried about posting that one - but I went on a night ride tonight and sang it the entire way....

    This might not help the case - but I'm adding Jackson Browne's Running on Empty.
    Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
    Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields
    In '65 I was seventeen and running up 101
    I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on

    Running on - running on empty
    Running on - running blind
    Running on - running into the sun
    But I'm running behind

    Depends on if I'm in the mood for loud angry music to maintain a high cadence to:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9o7eEjMlkCI

    or something to raise morale:

    or something to cruise along to in a Zen-like state:

    Due to repeated viewings of the movie Breaking Away, I will forever associate riding a road bike with the Overture from Barber of Seville.
