Back in 2006 I ran this ‘name that bike tune’ comp:
The prize has long since been awarded but, today, David Bernstein of the Fredcast, twittered about the lack of good bicycle music, compared to tunes about cars and driving. I replied with the YouTube video above. The comp was pre- Quickrelease.tv so there’s no URL for the answers.
Which is why I’m listing them here:
1 Queen, I want to ride my bicycle
2 Katie Melua, Nine Million Bicycles
3 Jerry Mungo, Pushbike Song
4 Attila Horvath, Singletrack Seduction
5 Dipsomaniacs, Get off my bike
6 Ballboy, Olympic cyclist
7 Kraftwerk, Aero Dynamik
8 Darryl Purpose, Traveler’s Code
9 Amy Correia, The Bike
10 Benoit Charest, Tour de France (from Triplets of Belleville/Belleville Rendezvous)
11 Moonlight Drive, Cycling through France
12 Ugly Kid Joe, Bicycle Wheels
13 Pink Floyd, Bike
14 Mixtures, Pushbike song
15 Bob Gaddy and his Alleycats, Bicycle Boogie
You decide, should I kill auto-postings like these?
It’s a daily collection of my witterings on Twitter.com. I post a lot of updates on Twitter. In webspeak, prolly too many. You don’t really want to know what I had for lunch (cheese sandwich with ale flavoured ploughman’s pickle, since you asked) but perhaps storing the postings is a good archive for the useful URLs I’m in a habit of posting?
It’s tough to go back too far in time on Twitter and I’m afraid all the postings about my past lunches will be lost. Sorry, meant to say ‘Useful URLs.’
