    THE SONGS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CYCLING-RELATED. :idea:

    I wish 'Chasing Cars' was a little more up tempo, would make it easier to catch the b*stard that had just cut me up!

    Actually, they are cycling related, add some captions, most songs can be cycling related. Just like the songs in the OP. ;)

    Seems you're still in a paddy over your helmet thread.

    No, nothing wrong with some of those songs, I'd say I have a good taste of music, I don't limit myself to one genre but I like lots of genres of music spread over decades.
