Hearing Aaron Copeland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" after cresting a major climb would be the bee's knees.

music requests

Postby tavi-1 » Sat Jul 26, 2008 7:39 am

"Touch of Grey" by the Grateful Dead would compliment nicely what my hair and mustache seem to be doing at the moment. Also the sag vans with the bubbles add a huge smile to my face :D.

"Cycle On"

Although I might not have all the songs listed, I do have several and will gladly play them whenever asked. I may dedicate a portion of each day to specifically play the requested song only.

Some I have found not listed are Matt Costa, Ben Harper, Eddie Vedder, Jack Johnson, Pink Martini & many many more.

See you in September, keep the request coming.

Thanks,
John

You are so cool to even open up a discussion thread. I've already learned so much about my fellow riders from the music they listen to. For example, thought of listening to Aaron Copeland is fabulous and not what I would have ever come up with.

Thank you!

The obvious choices are already in the ipod. It's the more obscure choices I'm looking for. Also, although most of the music I really enjoy, I'm sharing my choices with all of you as you pass me on the side of the road.

I've learned to encourage rather than discourage. Early on I would play annoying music to help encourage you along or away such as "I't's a small world" or the "C is for Cookie" (of which I enjoy them both) but my wife finds them annoying.

So now I've gone to asking for requests. Those I don't have and like somewhat I will add. Others may fall away and perhaps some of my other Sags may like them and pick them up. It's all a mystery.

Well, we must have Pink Martini, of course. And wouldn't it be lovely to hear Misty River, especially if you have a copy of that bicyclist's lullaby they sang last year in Cottage Grove.

Cycle Oregon lullaby

Postby kirsten » Tue Jul 29, 2008 10:29 am

There's also Kate Power and Steve Einhorn's Cycle Oregon lullaby.
It's available on their new album "Brick and Mortar" on CD Baby: http://cdbaby.com/cd/powereinhorn and also on iTunes.
The song is called "Under the Moon".
Lyrics are here: http://qualityfolk.com/music-141.html

Kate & Steve will be back again this year organizing the music for CO.
