Oh, no Kelownagirl! You're never too old for a music thread. Heck, my grandmother has an iPod now. ;)

I've been stuck on Picaresque as well, Adam. I'm lousy at putting together playlists though. I tend to just pick an artist that I'm feeling for the day and then just skip if something is too slow for the ride.

The newish Indigo Girls album, Despite Our Differences has been a frequent, also Death Cab's Plans, and I've been stuck on Panic at the Disco and Motion City Soundtrack lately.

And the Beatles. You just can't beat the Beatles.

I I like to ride with music, but I tend to play it pretty low level and with only the earbud furthest from the road in. That was I have the best of both worlds. In midtown I never play anything though - the cabs are insane and the bike messengers are even worse!

My favorite is Sublime, DMX, Alanis Morissette, Rage against the Machine, and Eminem. It's a wacky mix, but it works. I must confess that I never load my own ipod; my husband loads it and I roll out.

I mostly listen to I Mother Earth, Dream Theater and Collective Soul while doing my cardio. Sometimes with a splash of Velvet Revolver and Stabbing Westward. Also of note, I only listen to music when I'm riding with my bike on the trainer, I prefer not to risk listening while on the road :)

Maybe a little late, but if you're looking for any holiday music check out Aimee Mann - One More Drifter In the Snow. It's an awesome Christmas album.

Always nice to find someone else who knows Dream Theater! (BLUEBIKR) They have some great stuff that is really good workout music.

I'm a musician, and so I like to listen to stuff that I'm inspired by or am trying to learn to play while I work out. It's a good way to keep my mind active and further my playing at the same time I'm working out. Lately, that has been some miscellaneous Collective Soul, Through Glass by Stone Sour, lots of Incubus, and a smattering of tracks by jazz guitar greats like Pat Metheny, Wes Montgomery, or John McLaughlin. It makes for a really eclectic mix that's lots of fun.

When exercising I listen to reggae, R&B and other high tempo dance songs. When relaxing, I am a Pink Floyd fan first and a classic rock fan overall.

Looking for some new music to check out? I'd suggest Tom Petty - Highway Companion. It's a fantastic disc that is comparable to his biggest album Full Moon Fever.

I used one of the songs, Saving Grace, to put together this video with a photo show program I found this morning on the Microsoft website.

I know I never said anything, but I love that playlist BLUEBIKR. I don't know every song, but judging by the ones I do I'd be interested to hear the others.

Adam,
Nice. I had forgotten all about Mr. Brownstone. I haven't heard it since the early nineties, but I'll have to raid my "guy bin" (up in the attic along with my beer steins and other irreplaceables) and dust that one off. My Morning Jacket has some great tunes although I prefer It Still Moves to At Dawn.

As far as pick me up music goes, and I think Jeff would agree, Tool's "the grudge" is better than any caffine for wake up music. Of course, if it's a Monday after a three day weekend and your thinking dark thoughts anyway, Pearl Jam's "Smile" is always a good (or maybe bad) choice. You guys may want to listen to a little Franz Ferdinand. That guy is either an unabashed hedonist or has a weird sense of humer. I can't decide. Here's a sampling from my current playlist.

Silence Kit - Pavement
Shallow - Porcupine Tree
Love Train - Wolfmother
How I stopped worrying and love the rock - Local H
Free - OSI
The Glass Prison - Dream Theater (a 14 minute thrashfest in the vein of Metallica)
Float on - Modest Mouse
Sun King - the Cult

Then I'll slow my heartrate down the some of the Cowboy Junkies or Cat Power. Nothimg more relaxing than a female vocalist crooning into a microphone.

Bluebikr: No, I'm not your mother (or anyone's mother for that matter!), just a consciencious rider! :-P

Jujubug: I think the radio on your bike is a great alternative. There's a guy who always does the MS150 I'm doing in October and he actually carries a stereo with him in a kid-carrier on the back of his bike to provide music for everyone in his group. I think he's crazy: that thing's got to be heavy! But it's better (read: safer) than drowning out your surroundings :)

There are times when I would have liked to have some music with me but I am too jumpy to not be constantly aware of the all the noises around me. Maybe I will just have a little radio mounted onto my bike and that way I can have my ears working and listening at the same time.

Shellbear,

Is your real name Linda? Because you sound like my mom. Quit harshin our buzz. Gosh!

Only kidding. Obviously, safety is a concern. Fortunately, for me, I ride mainly backroads and I might have two cars pass me in a ten mile stretch. Unfortunately, for me, my hearing isn't the greatest mainly due to the aforementioned musical life choices, so I can't hear them coming anyway. I figure one day I'll be posting on the crashes thread again!

I have an Ipod shuffle, loaded with Green Day. I find it really helps me pump up my speed!! It does make it difficult to hear the cars though.

Yep, cars, semis and farm equipment are common staples around here! Once I get out of the city it gets pretty light, but I'd still like to hear a cement truck if it's coming up from behind ;) Plus I usually ride with a group, so conversation is frequent and we warn eachother of debris in the road, etc. You get the idea :)

So... you guys have cars where you ride, eh? Bummer. Cars aren't much of a worry in my area. I, too, use an iRiver MP3 player and listen to Linkin Park, Tool, Sevendust, more Tool, Evenescence, The Crystal Method, even more Tool, some select Metallica, and a few others. There are many times I turn it off or way down, but there are times when the scenery is old/lame and the wind has made me effectively deaf anyway where having the tunes is very nice. I find the harder stuff to be a nice driving force in my head when my head wouldn't otherwise be interested in pushing up the hill. I will often ride with just one bug in my ear too so I can hear things/people around me. Interestingly, my earbuds tend to take themselves out when I check behind me on downhills or sprints, which seems convenient.

I don't listen to anything but the sounds of the road when I ride: blaring music in your ears when you're supposed to be paying attention to traffic or your surroundings isn't safe in my opinion. Call me a traditionalist ;)

I would love to listen to Metalica or Linkin Park or anything like that while I ride but I have 2 problems. 1. I don't have anything to play the music with although I have thought about getting an Ipod or similar gadget. 2. I am not sure I should be pumping music in my ear when I should be listening for the next car that thinks it would be cute to graze me on the way by.

Some of the recents posts on the gadget thread have been about listening to music while you ride. I'm using an IRiver MP3 player and because I have a membership with Yahoo Music, I have access to thousands of good songs (a about a billion bad ones). So I was just curious as to what our group is listening to.

Recently, I have been turned onto Wolfmother which has the ferocity of Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath and makes you ask, "Head-slamming stadium RAWK, where have you been?" It's a nice kick in the ass to get you pedaling harder! Another group I'm listening to now is Porcupine Tree which is much tamer, but still very good. Check em out and let me know what you think.
