Riding music.......

So, I have this project I.m working on......I need some good music for the background. No metal. no rap. Music without lyrics would be even better. Something that would not over shadow the projects purpose would be a must. Post up some suggestions!

To make it easier, list the artist and song title together.

Thanks!

Cliffs of Dover

Misirlou

Pipeline

Just off the top of my head instrumentals.

 

The Doors have some long jams as do Phish , Widespread Panic and Isaac Hayes. Oh and Rusted Root has some cool stuff.

On the other hand, if slow and ethereal is your goal then maybe Najma or Mazzy Star.

Personally, I can't workout without Rage Against The Machine, or the Chili Peppers, who btw have a couple of cool instrumentals. Probably because they have one of the greatest bass players ever.

beastie boys - pow, for instrumental.

would love to see some biking video with flobots - handlebars behind it.

for something more fun and upbeat, I think Gogol Bordello - Immigraniada would be awesome.

 This may not go well with the older crowd.  But, alot of videos made by the top guys use dubstep tracks as background music.  The reason is that it starts slow, builds up, and then you have a drop.  I have had a few songs that I thought would be great for a bike video.  

Klaypex - Lights (the intro would need to be shortened)

Awolnation - Sail (Unlimited Gravity Remix) ~6 min

Elli Golding - Lights (Bassnectar remix)

I can go on if you're interested and can edit the songs to match footage.

 Your Bassnectar reminded me of Pretty Lights(Hot Like Sauce, or City of One) which would also be good bike music. I love Sail...I'm gonna check out the remix, thanks.

The Killergroove Formula has a long (6min) and unique version of The Peter Gunn theme which is awesome. Might check out Poi Dog Pondering for instrumentals with a paucity of lyrics in some songs. 

The Great Curve by The Talking Heads would be great for videoing girl riders.

Two of my faves:

Nonpoint - Longest Begenning

Rush - YYZ

Big fan of Pretty Lights!  The Sail remix is my favorite, even over the original.

 

Edit:  Hey David, without giving away your vision of your project, what did you have in mind when it comes to the music?

Signup or to reply

The music is the last thing to be added to the video. As for the music, it would need to be suited for a variety of riding. A few people on here by now have seen what I've been doing. Only Muro knows the full objective of the project. I've been working on it for several weeks. I would love to be done soon. Fact is it may take several more weeks. I'm hopeful that the outcome of this project will be as "epic" as Oak mtn itself..........

If anyone has a suggestion and would like to post a youtube link it would be very helpful.

 Muse - Knights of Cydonia...

 I like this thread better than the drama thread. Muse's guitarist is great. And, back to Rage, Tom Morello has some sick solos with his Audioslave stint, particularly What You Are and Like A Stone.

And,  I'd be remiss if I failed to mention that awesome bass line in Stranglehold by The Nuge.

Anything off of David Holmes'  "Let's Get Killed", which is appropriate music for MoFlow.  I love "Gritty Shaker", but there are a bunch of jewels on this disc.

Chemical Brothers "Where Do I Begin", "One Too Many Mornings"

Radiohead's "The National Anthem"

Frank Zappa's "Watermelon in Easter Hay", "Zoot Allures", "The Orange County Lumbertruck", "Heavy Duty Judy", "The Deathless Horsie"

Phish's "Harry Hood", "You Enjoy Myself", "The Landlady", "Cars, Trucks, Busses"

Allman Brothers "Mountain Jam"

The Police "Voices Inside My Head"

Ween "Pinkeye On My Leg", "Ice Castles"

This is a weird list I've given you, enjoy.  And most don't have words, or just a few words.

So far the rage aginst the machine, bass nectar, and red hot chili peppers are canidates. If that tells you what I'm somewhat looking for. This is not the kind of stuff I usually listen to but is what I'm looking for. I'm still open and checking while waiting on the next shoot day.

Goldfrapp Strict Machine (We Are Glitter Mix).   About the only vocal on it is Stacey going "tchsh" "tchsh" "tchsh"

Well, I gotta add my crazy opinion...  When I ride...on the ipod.... it's usually Industrial type techno...  serious beats.  The bands would include: Ministry, Combichrist, Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, and then some heavy stuff by System of a Down... just to make you "clear" that  Step- Up....    Just Do it...

 Hey, if you like that bassy stuff, Les Claypool of Primus has some solo music.

Also, Flea and Chad Smith did a little solo stuff besides the 2 or 3 Chili Pepper instrumentals.

 Tool and/or Metallica would also be good for night scenes.

 Hate to keep posting stuff, but I had completely forgotten about one of my favorite bands from a few years ago, a bizarre pseudo-surf music band named Los Straitjackets.

A couple of good tracks are Swamp Fire and Itchy Chicken, but there are many others.

In that vein, you may wanna check out Link Wray too. Rumble is a major classic.

I know. I started going through what I have and it's going to take a while, but I'm still shooting footage. The setup is hard to get the perfect shot but when it does, it is sooo awesome. It normally catches about 5-10 seconds per shot. And I still have more to shoot..........Hoping to have all of it in a couple more weeks.Especially since, I've already started my idea phase for the next project, wit till you hear what it is.LOL. It will be comepletely different footage from the usual stuff I do. And it will serve a specific purpose.....

At this point I can say without Nick, I'd be making no progress. Thanks to everyone helping.

The sneak peek previews have ended for the moment.

Well, I have compiled a pretty good list. I have roughly 40 tracks that are awesome mtn biking songs Most of which are instrumentals.. I have just about everything I had planned to shoot although I think I would like to do one more day of shooting. So much of it has been trial and error. I'm to the point now of knowing where and what I want. Some of which would just be retakes because the clip I already have only has one rider in the shot. I want as many multiple rider clips as I can get. We have some very unique footage so far.

Ignorance has never kept me from having an opinion, so following are a few suggestions untainted by any clue whatever about your project.  I limited this to shorter works, on the theory that they'd be easier bricks from which to assemble your whatever it is.  Oh, and they're also mostly pretty old, like me.

Sartori in Tangier - King Crimson, from Beat - 3:36 - quiet 45 sec intro to get the gear on, then I can see the bike action begin
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi62F_t-9E4

No Love Lost - Joy Division, from An Ideal for Living - 3:40; vocals come in at 1:59, but oh, that intro!  Maybe too noisy for what you want, though.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGRHO_yUTE0

Loomer - My Bloody Valentine, from Loveless - 2:38; not technically an instrumental, but the vocals (as well as the instruments) are so distorted it might as well be.  Yeah, I have the new "followup" m b v that just came out these mere 21 years later, but I still gotta go with a cut from Loveless http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztnutktJP7M

Any Colour You Like - Pink Floyd, from Dark Side of the Moon - 3:26  Maybe too recognizable if you're looking for obscure, but who knows, it might be just the ticket.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbKAh3zJmH8 

Vonal Declosion - Stereolab, from Margerine Eclipse - Not an instrumental, but the vocals are in French, so same difference
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smioSKTbp6w

West of Bald Knob - Marshall Crenshaw, from 447 - 3:27 - Way laid back, if that's what you need
not on Youtube!  Marshall just does not get the attention he deserves.

Judy is a Dick Slap - Belle & Sebastian, from Push, Barman... - 4:06 - I can easily conjure video in my head for this one
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xa9_BQdfo50

Gravelrash - Midnight Oil, from Breather - 3:28 - laid back, but with drive  Perfect for a video - some video, somewhere.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEeWdgacnKM

pH Factor - The dB's, from Repercussion - 2:30 - in a similar vein as Gravelrash  The video link is a live performance; the album cut would likely better suit
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPSCf1y4lK4

A Fifth of Beethoven - Walter Murphy & the Big Apple Band - 3:01 - Is it disco time again, yet?  I lived through it once.,,
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAQKFNrL-o0
