I like your choices - you could add "Thank You for the Days" by the Kinks ;but the possible list is endless.:cool4::palm::Beach:

Bloody good choices Nico, hard to dispute.

I would choose two: a fast riding list and a slow riding list.

Hendrix - All along the Watchtower.
Metallica - One
Rage Against the Machine - Killing in the Name of
Meatloaf - Bat Out of Hell
Rolling Stones - Paint it Black

The Smiths - Girlfriend in a Coma
Velvet Underground - Heroin
ZZ Top - La Grange
Johnny Cash - When the Man Comes Around
Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone

There is my choice.

In the summer time - mungo jerry
changes - david bowie
harvest for the world - the isley brothers
in dreams - roy orbison
goodbye yellow brick road - elton john

Depends on the road of course. And the mood. But let's see, you said pissing around on the bike in warm countries. Mainly because I was listening to them on the iPod, these tracks remind me of some of the long hot roads I found in Turkey.

Woman in chains
Tears For Fears

Hot cuz I'm deployed Houck & Simms

Hayling FC Kahuna "Don't think about.... all those things you fear...just be glad to be here"
(1½ minutes of build-up then take a deep breath...)

A different corner George Michael

A change is gonna come Seal

One day like this
Elbow ".....a year'd see me right"

Weather to fly Elbow "are we having the time of our lives?"

Love's divine Seal

Slave to love Bryan Ferry

For Emma Bon Iver "..so many foreign roads...."

All a bit mellow I know, but that's the kind of tour it was.

But my all-time motorcycling anthem has to be:

Learning to fly
Pink Floyd "Into the distance, a ribbon of black...stretched to the point of no turning back"

PS I can't count

Road - Nick Drake
This road is long - Stuart A Staples
(May the road...) Rise - PIL
Motorway City - Hawkwind
