what song would you choose.....?
on: April 18, 2017, 19:05:47
if you had to listen to it over and over and over?

just asking because i just read this article of this guy breaking all kinds of cycling records in driving longggggg and fast
and on his record cycling trips he always chooses just one song that will be played over and over and over again during that mission

and CNN is now asking: what song should he choose for his record attempt?
https://www.facebook.com/cnnsport/posts/1756797417670063

that made me wonder, which song would i choose, which song would you choose?

oh, and....*edit*....No, old Dutchbeat is not going on a record longgg cycling mission himself

oh, here is some more about picking one song by this cyclist:

Let me preface this by saying I would never in my right mind go cycling for so many hours straight, or listen to a song over and over again (unless I was in the process of making one of course).
Also, super fun question to think about.

I suppose I'd want to pick a super long song with a lot of changes so that there's more time between the same parts, to keep it interesting. It's probably a cop out answer, but I'd choose one of the Grateful Dead live versions of either Dark Star, or Althea or something.

My non-cop out answer would probably be The Big Payback by James Brown.

It's true maybe something more motivational like Eye of the Tiger or Final Countdown might be better suited, but only so many times in a row before going crazy   ::smiley::

Cheers,

Wow, if I really had to listen to the same piece of music while cycling for that long, my only choice would be John Cage's 4'33''. Seriously, the cycling itself will drive me crazy, why should I torture myself even more?! ???

I actually did a lot of long distance cycling in my adventurous youth.

Anyway......I think I would choose "I'm Getting Closer To My Home" (Grand Funk Railroad).  ;D
