    The song that's stuck in your head while you ride......

    For me today it's.....

    Such a long long time to be gone
    and a short time to be there

    For me it rarely is anything good. Usually it is theme music from Frozen or Trolls from hearing that crap over and over with the kids. I do see it as a form of turture

    I always get songs that relate to something on the ride.
    On the road bike I ride on Del Mar off Sierra College so I always get the Mother Hips song Del Mar Station stuck.
    If I'm on a long ride I get Cool Blue Reason by Cale stuck because of the line "only 8 more hours to go". The rest of the song doesn't make any sense in the context of a ride but still

    The song that's stuck in your head while you ride......

    Usually the Dukes of Hazzard theme thanks to one of the Punisher rides iheartbicycles and I did many years ago...he was singing it at the top of his lungs, and it's been stuck in my head when I ride ever since.

    I'm the asshole that listens to music when he rides but left my phone at home by accident last weekend so was forced to listen to nature (I really don't know how you guys do it). Anyhow, this was the song that wouldn't leave my head. It was unique in that it wasn't the whole song but rather the first two lines of the song played on a loop.

    I'm not sure how this works.

    This song. If I was an MMA fighter about to enter the octagon, this is what I would play. Since I can't fight my way out of a paper bag, I rely on mind games.

    It varies from ride to ride, mainly Primus, Rush, Pink Floyd, The Who. I donít need my Sony Walkmanô plugged into my earholes, all those albums were securely uploaded to my brain starting decades ago.

    I have vivid memories of being toted around in a baby shit green chevy station wagon when I was a young tot and all the while making my mother rewind tape and play this song over and over. I think my Dad disappeared it.

    It depends on the trail. Really fast and gnarly rocky stuff I tend to "sing" Master of Puppets - Metallica.

    Most of the time it's been Keep on Swinging - The Rival Suns from this video. Especially when I get steezy like Ryan at time 0:57! Ok so I only do that when crashing but in my head I'm steezin'.

    A few tunes have been haunting my brain lately though:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idtRhja2rAM
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEeIsHU3Zmc
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fS8Wks7f6eo
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMFGLqrgnuo&t=6s
    These tunes have extra special added cerebral and sentimental value for me.

    My kid is a toddler, so lately it's been kids songs stuck in my head while I ride. It's quite awful.

    What's wrong with Madonna? She's got stuff for every occasion.

    Since there's a Rocky Ridge thread, this is usually what I think of there and if I had bluetooth speakers on my bike it's what I would play .... Threshold bpm and a big "wtf would i want to do this."
