Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen; performed by Jeff Buckley. Hackneyed choice - but it always crops up in these polls for a good reason.

 

Mozambique - Bob Dylan. Perfect holiday music - in fact the album Desire is nearly always the first thing I play whenever I hit a beach or summer walk.

 

Whilst I was using itunes my most played tracks were Aretha Franklin "I say a little prayer", REM "Radio Free Europe", Nils Lofgren "Keith don't go", Joy Division "Love will tear us apart"

My favourite song has to be ‘Dazed and confused’ by Led Zeppelin any live version really, however, the definitive has to be the, almost, 29 minute epic on the album ‘The song remains the same’. Though if the rules were to be loose enough to allow an album then a very close winner would be ‘Animals’ by Pink Floyd; just edging out ‘Dark side of the moon’ and ‘The wall’ with ‘Physical graffiti’ coming a close fourth.

Will give Victoria a listen - I like rather than love the Posies.

Those live tracks tend to dull my brain - have you ever heard the Jake Homes version (original) or Jimmy Pages version whilst he was with Yardbirds (both are around - but tend to be hard to find cos the LZ version is so well known and there are about 20 different versions). I find Floyd just a little too much - but still great music. Please tell me you don't listen to that stuff on your bike - my one regret about two wheel transport is no tunes!

“Please tell me you don't listen to that stuff on your bike - my one regret about two wheel transport is no tunes!”

LOL, no, though being relatively mellow tunes they may have slowed me a tad, listening to ‘rage against the machine’ whilst on a sports bike is, absolutely, not to be recommended, but if it’s tunes and two wheeled transport you want, how about a ‘Honda Goldwing’?

 

Edit/ I think, I’ve listened to every recorded note of Jimmy Page (my musical hero), so yes I have heard the ‘Yard Birds’ version, I still stand by my original statement.

My sort of two-wheel fury is the self-propelled kind - so rage against the machine might get me fitter and faster, but also run over! I find myself whistling, humming, and singing to make up for the lack of proper music. What is worse is my subconscious chooses exactly the wrong songs - I often find myself singing the flip side to Queen's Bicycle Race - Fat Bottomed Girls - when I am behind a large lady on a bike; the mental cues all make perfect sense - but still very embarrassing.

Damn - it never ceases to amaze me how good the internet is for stuff like this
