Music! What are you listening to now?

03 Jul 2009 22:31

Most of us every day cycle to work Dutch folk tend to have music on when we pedal. I'm guessing that a fair number of you more serious cyclists (or joggers) here listen to music while you're training or just riding. So why not have a music topic where we post what we like, what we're listening to (doesn't exclusively have to be music for on the bike), and maybe turn someone else on to something cool or get turned on to something new?

Sounded like a good idea to me anyway. I'll start off with my main man (there's a really cool story behind this but I'll save it for when/if this topic takes off), Joe Bonamassa

I expect that most, if not all, of you will say, 'who'? He's a 31 year old blues rock guitarist who I think has the potential to become the 'Clapton' of his age, at least as far as reputation is concerned. Joe is awesomely talented, even if you're not a fan of the genre known as 'blues rock'. Joe inhabits the same world as people like Walter Trout, Sonny Landreth, the Allman Brothers, Warren Haynes (Govt. Mule), the late Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others. I urge you to check him out if you're at all a fan of this kind of music.

His website - http://www.jbonamassa.com/ has loads of samples and free music and there is tons of his stuff on youtube. I'll happily recommend songs to start with if anyone is interested.

I listen to Joe practically every day. I absolutely love his stuff! Discovering Joe's music changed my life. No ****. I also listen to Michael Burks, Bonnie Raitt, Dana Fuchs and many others whom none of you will have heard of!

But hey, whatever your taste, whatever you're listening to that you'd like to share because it's just so good, post it here and let's see where it takes us.

While trail running today I listened to a twenty-five minute recording of a thunderstorm a couple of times. After that ran out it was mainly Tom Petty and Social Distortion.

I used to, which accounts for the fact that my list was cool circa 1995.....

Great list though. Pussy Galore is aces. I just got back from CA and my first trip to SF. My wife went to school there and lived there for awhile. I am jealous, that city would be just fantastic for training.

Indeed, I am very fortunate. I even got to volunteer for the Tour of California the past two years.

Plenty of bike lanes in the Bay Area, some good (but not high in altitude) climbs, and a Mediterranean climate. Happy to be a born Californian.

OK, I put this on: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p9VYmBn5EbE&feature=related

Now I feel all better.

2 things I love about J. Mascis

1. He doesn't even try to sing. Just a real lazy ba$tard about it.
2. He can make the most beautiful sounds come out of a guitar.

Yea, my wife is from Nevada City and we have plans to move there. Actually the riding there is freaking great. Nothing but climbs, and steep ones at that. All below 3500 feet, but still. I guess I will have to suffer here in Vanilla City for awhile longer....

Blur.

Saw them in Hyde Park, London Thursday. That's one hell of a way to make a come back! 50,000 people jumping around like lunatics to Song 2 must feel like one helluva compliment.

Do you guys (girls?) do anything special to maintain traffic-awareness while you have music in your ears.

I'd love to ride with music but Im afraid of blocking out car noise.

I never listen to music on the road. I'll use an iPod when MTBing and trail running.

Me too, too dangerous in city to ride with them on the road. But mountain biking, it rules.
