btw, I found the PERFECT riding music for Denali.

come on, guess!

the Grateful Dead!

nono, seriously. I never listened to them growing up but it was fairly pervasive, growing up in Marin County. They had a house a few houses down from my parents when they were in Mill Valley (before I was born) so I think my parents got more of their music than they wanted (something about crazy parties...) and they weren't into the reefer scene (anymore) at that point. But my mom started listening to them again and in the continual music swap that happens between me and my parents (really, don't ask it's bizarre), I got some Dead music and it's GOOD groovy stretch trot through the back sort of music.

Can't wait to try riding her to this stuff!

Lol, that's awesome!

I really enjoy riding to Limp Bizkit and Bond. That big kind of music matched Lightning's stride so well!

No idea who sings it, but a friend of mine used to sing this song out on the Cross Country to help her breath and relax:

Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride
Nobody's gonna slow me down,
Woh-no! I've got to keep on movin'!

Really? I don't that disc then! I've got 2 of them and love their music, but I totally didn't know they sang it!

Yeah, but the version I'm thinking of was sung by a woman - remix in the mid-90's?

Huey's playlist is a lot of Johnny Cash, a little greatful dead, a little 60s-70s folky-rock stuff (Dylan, Clapton, Foggarty, etc.) and some reggae. Surf's is a mix of up-beat stuff to keep us thinking forward...although I love riding surf to "Black Water" by the Doobie brothers or "Wearwolves of London" by Warren Zevon

Of course, there's the conditioning playlist to keep us entertained during what was an endless winter of trot sets in the indoor...yuck yuck yuck. We needed some fun music to keep us going, as I often ended up doing both boys' trot sets on the same day...totaling over an hour of trotting, plus walk work, so plenty of time to get bored out of my skull. It's an eclectic list, but largely bouncy, catchy, get stuck in your head kind of songs :)

There's the pre-xc playlist too...mostly classic rock with a little punk and a little ska thrown in.

nice! I haven't broken it down into different types of play lists, but I do mess around with the playlist a lot depending on my mood and what we're doing. lots of 80s rock for interval training. don't ask why, it REALLY helps pass the time!
