Title: The song that kicks you off
Post by: morris on 29.05. 2013 22:42

Every time I hear the song "Millionaires Son" by the Creedence Clearwater Revival, it makes me jump up and kick the bike to life for a burst on the wide open road. I find it's got exactly the right pace to suit an A10
In fact, I often find myself humming it when driving, pretending to be in a road movie of some kind.....;D

Anybody else got a song like that?

any of the above really - good selection - and probably most of the below  ;)

but at the moment possible Claptons "Lay Down Sally", got it as my ringtone on the phone as it has a longish intro, I like to see shop assistants starting to jig about if it goes off in the shop.

As an aside for your safety, a friend suggested "Bearshare" as a site for free MP3 downlands, don't  it puts some funny stuff on your PC you don't really want, no virus but stuff sitting in there you know nothing about (unless your as nosy as I am)

How about this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exusLEScGek and a great film too.

My favourite has got to be this
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHVYBiVKldU

Here are the lyrics:


The old Rocker wore his hair too long,
wore his trouser cuffs too tight.
Unfashionable to the end --- drank his ale too light.
Death's head belt buckle --- yesterday's dreams ---
the transport caf' prophet of doom.
Ringing no change in his double-sewn seams
in his post-war-babe gloom.

Now he's too old to Rock'n'Roll but he's too young to die.

He once owned a Harley Davidson and a Triumph Bonneville.
Counted his friends in burned-out spark plugs
and prays that he always will.
But he's the last of the blue blood greaser boys
all of his mates are doing time:
married with three kids up by the ring road
sold their souls straight down the line.
And some of them own little sports cars
and meet at the tennis club do's.
For drinks on a Sunday --- work on Monday.
They've thrown away their blue suede shoes.

Now they're too old to Rock'n'Roll and they're too young to die.

So the old Rocker gets out his bike
to make a ton before he takes his leave.
Up on the A1 by Scotch Corner
just like it used to be.
And as he flies --- tears in his eyes ---
his wind-whipped words echo the final take
and he hits the trunk road doing around 120
with no room left to brake.

And he was too old to Rock'n'Roll but he was too young to die.
No, you're never too old to Rock'n'Roll if you're too young to die.


Jethro Tull- Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll: Too Young To Die! (LIVE VERSION), from the album Bursting Out

I'm minded to remember Mat Monroe singing born free........

Born free, as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart

Live free, and beauty surrounds you
The world still astounds you
Each time you look at a star

Stay free, where no walls divide you
You're free as a roaring tide
So there's no need to hide

Born free, and life is worth living
But only worth living
Cause you're born free

 He sticks to his guns
He take the road as it comes
It take the shine off his shoes
He says it's a shame
You know it may be a game
Ah, but I won't play to lose

He's burning the grass
He take up a glass
He swallow it neat
He crosses the floor
He open the door
He take a sniff of the street

And she tell him that he's crazy
She's a-saying listen baby
I'm your wife
She tell him that he's crazy
For gambling a-with his life

But he climbs on his horse
You know he feel no remorse
He just kicks it alive
His motor is fine
He take it over the line
Until he's ready to dive

And she tell him that he's crazy
Yes she's saying listen baby
I'm your wife
Yeah she tell him that he's crazy
For gambling with his life

He sticks to his guns
He take the road as it comes
It take the shine off his shoes
He says it's a shame
You know it may be a game
Ah but I won't play to lose

He sticks to his guns
He take the road as it comes
It take the shine off his shoes
He's too fast to stop
He take it over the top
He make a line in the news

This is a song about BSA brakes  *lol*

 Ok I got lost betixt these songs, but e's DragonForce feels a bit like a cross of old Queen,Iron Maiden and something past King Crimson? 
 I like that George Formby one, I know some folk who may appreciate that
Usually what I sing to is Willies "On the road again' not really a bike song, but a band song...and Arlos' Motorcycle song
Can throw in a Ten Years After song, also not a bike song but the first time I remember it at 17 yo was intro up the freeway on-ramp, busting into it as we hit the Go lanes in my mates EH Van

I put me teeth in, me baby wears a bra
We're heading for the high life, the real expensive bars
Put on me vari-focals, me easy-fitting jeans
and me blue suede slip-ons coz I can't bend me knees
I hope the music's good and loud, me hearing's gone to pot
after years of riding open pipes and playing heavy rock
I got the old biker blues, me beard is going grey
but I ain't gonna slow down, I still know how to play

 RIP Lou Reed,
  I must've missed this, but KiwiPom, those links just tell me 'no longer available'- bugga, I'll try'n chase em up elsewhere.
That Earl Scruggs was fairly shethoot, I's a sucker for Hillbilly/bluegrass, actually saw a left handed fiddle player for the first time the other night

Brian yer right about Arlos motoSickle song- I think I always sing that to myself, but it seemed a bit cliche.
 Funny, but when i was trying to figure what colour to paint my A10, and couldn't decide between the blue or the red, which is why it ended up as it is, it occurred to me that when I originally started to build it I may have had a preconceived idea in my head of what a Motor cycle should look like, seeded by Arlos song in ~'68, and when it ended up red and blue, it looked to me like it had landed on top of a police car-but no one died.....
    When he was in town here in March, I managed to have a yarn with him and told him this story, and he was a bit bemused, and showed me a picture of his Indian....he'd had a big day, but that's another(Arlo) story.....!!

Haven't gotten to ride an A10 yet, but Radar Love- Golden Earring makes my throttle hand twist the loud knob real hard. Hot Rod Heart by Fogarty and Runnin' Down a Dream by Tom Petty gets me going faster as well. Of course, there's Maybelline (Chuck Berry), Hot Rod Lincoln (Commander Cody) and many others for longer rides, but these are good for commuting to work (about 30 miles of twisty 2-lane).

Thanks Muskrat ! an excellent playlist.

For "offline youtube music", have been using this https://www.4kdownload.com/products/product-videodownloader for a while, it works 1st class+++. Free. To support them, today just bought the licence, well worth it.

In this case, downloading all 51 songs from your playlist to my pc :O) as mp3 with titles, artist, cover photo etc. See attachments.

Not at all for piracy or illegal sharing etc, but to be able to listen to stuff later several times, saving internet consumption as am very often (lately always) on metered mobile connection. And yes, I buy music too, allmost always things initially discovered on youtube.

Somehow they grabbed the spirit and put it in a new and exiting jacket!

I always have an old valve radio on when I'm fettling in the shed (Radio Two) and heard an old song that I had to Shazam (an app that recognises songs) a particular track that I'd never known who sung it. I only remember a comedy duo singing it during the late seventies. (Lenny Bennett & Jerry Stevens) What a revelation! to hear this song by the original singer...his wife wrote the lyrics that's gotta be the cheesiest you've heard.... Now... your going to have a song playing in your head that you won't be able to shift.... Ready? https://youtu.be/qnxoTCvklKQ

That's not a radio - they have transistors. If it's got valves then it is a wireless  ;)

Ah yes but you can probably still get Radio Luxembourg on that, and Journey into space, will have just missed the TT with Duke.

Seriously tho old valve radios had a warmth about them, a few crackles and fades also.

Russian troops were using valves long after ours went to Transistors, then we found out about a thing called EMP

If you tune in to BBC Radio 4 Extra you can listen to old stuff all day long. I've modified my parent's old valve 'Wireless' so I can plug it into a modern sound source. Rado 4Extra sounds great coming out the old bakelite case!

"Ten forward gears and a sweet Georgia overdrive" - love it! Wonder if that will fit on the Super Rocket  *smile*

lawnmowermman - just the sort of music I like. Can't stand this modern so-called 'rock n roll'. Give me the 50's and 60's and the rocker era. Ah, those were the days.
Whenever 'in the mood' for riding / driving (or before a race when I used to compete) I like to hear a good solid beat. Dead ringer for Love (ML), I'm on fire (Jerry Lee), Travellin Band, Promised Land (Elvis), Morning Dew (Nazareth), Cover of the rolling stone (Dr Hook). Something that pumps you up. The list is endless ....

Great call on the Nazareth track! What does it for me at the mo is JJ Cale's " call me the breeze"

 *smile* Played it "a miilion" times in the 70's. Only complaint, the songs could last longer...

Found on an old Byrds CD....The track" Nashville West" is a good riding tune. You can imagine its GB's happy shriek, celebrating mechanical success, towards the end.
