I’ve been thinking about that bicycle movie list posted a while ago. There’s this Japanese movie called Messengers that I’ve wanted to see. It kinda sounds like the movie Quicksilver if Kevin Bacon was a woman…and Japanese (actually that’s a disturbing image). Anyways, I’ve always been into music more than movies, so invite people to submit their favourite bicycle songs. Rules: it’s gotta be pretty obvious that the song is referring to bicycles, not motorcycles. so I here’s my own list of bicycle songs to start the ball rolling:
The Trucks- Big Afros (self-titled) My two favorite things in life: big Afros and riding bikes with you.
Orbit- Bicycle Song (Libido Speedway)
What a pretty bicycle she said, I want one just like that.
Lily Allen-LDN (Alright, Still)
Riding thru the city on my bike all day cause the filth took away my license
They Might Be Giants- Narrow Your Eyes (Apollo 18)
get on my bike, ride down our block, ride thru the rows, thru the green lights, but when I think of all your advice, I narrow my eyes…
Tori Amos- Pretty Good Year (Under The Pink)
Tears on the sleeve of a man, don’t wanna be a boy today. Heard the eternal footman bought himself a bike to race
The Smiths- This Charming Man (originally 7 single)
Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate, will Nature make a man of me yet?
