You are riding along, and you realise there has been a tune in your head for the last 30 minutes. At least I hope other people get that, otherwise :oops: :oops: :oops:

Sometimes you wonder how a tune got into your head, and maybe how to get it out.

Commuting home last night, I had Not Fade Away, by The Stones playing in my head. Don't know where that came from, but nice cycling music nonetheless :D .

Fine taste, sir. The Stones' early stuff clearly shows who/what influenced their style.

I know exactly what you mean, and often have the same thing.

This morning, it was "Leave a tender moment alone" by Billy Joel.

Why? Dunno. Maybe I'm going nuts... :|

Walk. Foo Fighters.

I just can't get enough of it. Been playing Wasting light in my truck every day since it was released. I've always been a mild FF fan but this album is fantastic. I just hope I can get tickets to their Sydney concert.

Lifes funny - voices in your head because you're a bit nuts, music in your head because you're cool.

      Darling, don't you ever sit and ponder?
      darling did you ever think
      About the building of the hills a yonder?
      all this life stuff's closely linked
      Where we're going in this verdant spiral?
      Who's pushing the pedals on the season cycle?

XTC - Season's Cycle :D

Not wrong. Disc one is an instant coaster, disc two's only running about 40% worthwhile.
Motorheads Ace Of Spades opening pumps me every time it enters me head.

Punk Jazz - Jaco Pastorius (the big band arrangement on the Birthday Concert CD, not the Weather Report version). Had no listened to it for a couple of years at least and it pops into my head all the time, cycling or otherwise.

I find Sepultura's "Arise" is good. Song was tracked at 220bpm, that gives you a good 110rpm target to aim at for cadence. 8)

whilst I am not the worlds biggest hip-hop afficiando, the production & roll of beats of this track & album are irresistable.

En route this morning I found myself counting the number of sleeps until no more work until 2012. That number is 1, which led to this ...
