Bicycle Songs

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?
