The ONE favorite indoor trainer tune, anyone?

Check out Cheap Trick (live) AT BUDOKAN cd. Their take on Fats Domino "Ain't That a Shame" will knock yah out. Outstaanding cd for Tempo ridin' on the Wind/ Mag Trainer or Rollers. Down hills, flats, climbs ... spinning, sprinting, out of the saddle climbs...it's all there. Had this buried on Vinyl "Liquorice Pizza" & just got the cd.

Damn, never used to particularly cotton to this style of Rock. Must be re-gressin' as ah age.

Since you're looking for the ONE indoor tune:

"Death or Glory" - the Clash, from London Calling.

Words that any struggling bike racer can understand....

I like a little edge. I roll with Guns and Roses or Aerosmith as my favs.
Beach Boys car song or Top Gun soundtrack ...Humma Hah

... will both get my blood pumping. Also fond of selected cuts from "Star Wars" soundtracks or "The Rocketeer" (I noticed David Copperfield used some of these the other night).

Or for longer, more determined efforts, the soundtrack from "Chariots of Fire".

Some of that old R&B stuff makes me tired -- "Walking to New Orleans" ain't the best for cycling.

Yavo. Ran the San Diego Half Marathon back in '93. They bus you from Balboa Park to the top of Cabrillo Pt. at 5:30 am. They were blastin' the Beach Boys to wake everbody up. IT worked. "little deuce coupe" & "409"(?). Believe Glen Campbell helped out on "help me rhonda"?, mebee the tune for climbing with a bike named rhonda.

COF ... first saw that last month on Direct TV.

Fat's Domino ... Domonio's "Blueberry Hill" missed out on no.1 to Everly Brother's "wake up little Susy". Yeah, hay was in HS when this stuff came out(!).

Grew up with old style 40's-50's country music as my dad & mom's brother played in the bands.

Make that dad's bro and mom's bro., no jokes pleeze. My dad's brother "Boots" played in the Ernest Tubb band. Tubb coined the phrase "Country Music", before that it was called Hillbilly music and started from fiddle music before the influence of the Spanish guitar. Later the Hawaiian steel came in. Bob Will's brought in the horns, piano, electric Fender bass. My mom's brother "Bub" played in local Dallas, Tex. night club Country bands, Big D Jamboree & taught me guitar but it did not take.

Went thru all the phases ...
c&w, pop, jazz, r&b, blues, big band, folk, classical & semi, rock; you name it.

cheers
