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.
Good choices so far, my criteria is that you should be able to whistle along inside helmet or out so here's my pick:-
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

brilliant, bring it on!! will be putting all the best ones from this thread onto a 'Best Biking Bits' mp3 playlist, and if anyone can tell me to how to upload that to somewhere online (where???), i'll do a link to it from here and anyone can have it.
BTW loving goodbye yellow brick rd, definitely going to have that, already got all along the watchtower and like a rolling stone too, and definitely have to have bat out of hell really don't i!!
the doors: riders on the storm
metallica: the unforgiven
bob dylan: shelter from the storm (budokan version)
and maybe waterloo sunset..?
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
Highway 61 revisited - PJ Harvey
The Road - Levellers
We came along this road - Nick Drake & the Bad Seeds
The old main drag - Pogues
Mmmmmmmm, bit of a theme going on there.
