Sometimes when im riding home from work i wish i had my i-pod or some music of some type just for that little extra motivation. I never would cos i think it would be too dangerous but it got me thinking, if i was sitting at the top of a mountain waiting to honk down it, what song would i like played in the background.....?

Foo Fighters ...Everlong

Your turn............!

Keith Oates

Not a song, but Flight of the Bumblebee seems appropriate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a liking for the Fatboy Slim track 'Acid 8000' - which accompanies the Lance Armstrong ascent of Alpe D'Huez. Going down, I could replicate his climbing speed!

'Free Bird' by Lynrd Skynrd would allow for a frenzied bout of singing downhill - no braking allowed!;)
I like 'World's Forgotten Boy' by Billy Idol. Opening lyrics:

'My road is long it lingers on'

and the it goes into a top rock song with great guitars.

Something really long... how about Queen's Bohemain Rhapsody??

(Eric Claption Kayleigh extended is the longest song I can think of, but you're not really after long guitar solos now are you??!!)

Ending myself at Flight of the Bumblebee Keith! Brilliant!

I think I'd have "The Heat is On" by whoever it was.

Wagner a good shout too Mr Ph - I love the smell of napalm in the morning!

Glenn Frey, I think.

I'd go for either Motörhead - Ace of Spades or Yello - The Race.


Any song off 'Innervisions' by Stevie Wonder (with the exception of 'Visions').

Or the entire 'Minimum Maximum' album by Kraftwerk...err, I mean me(!)

The Fly - U2 (those unwanted snacks)
Slow Down - Natalie Imbruglia
Valleys Of Valhalla - Gino Vannelli


Stand Or Fall - The Fixx
Push It - Garbage

Push it, make the beats go harder (bpm on the HRM)
Push it, make the beats go harder

I'm sorry that I hurt you (the mountain talking)
Please don't ask me why
I want to see you happy
I want to see you shine


C'mon push it, you can do it
C'mon prove it, nothing to it
C'mon use it, let's get through it
C'mon push it, you can do it
