Tunes you don't want to get stuck in your head during approach hikes: I'm So Tired (Beatles), She's So Heavy (Beatles), also Free Falling (Tom Petty). Especially not the first one though. :cry:

Music for the mtns: U2 - Joshua Tree, Led Zeppelin, Foo Fighters, Big Country, Neil Young.

Nobody's mentioned: Dance on a Volcano (Genesis)

How about this Genesis tune:


Me And Sarah Jane
Artist(Band):Genesis

Colder and colder, the ice is moving closer
And it gets me down.

Pack on my back, going swiftly nowhere,
Heart in my ear beating like a drum.

I really enjoyed Eddie Vedder's soundtrack to "Into the Wild." Not necessarily get-up-and-go upbeat sort of music, but good for long car rides.

The Joy of Living

Postby parky » Tue Dec 30, 2008 11:22 am

I defy any mountain-loving climber to say they can't relate to the lyrics of Ewan McColl's "Joy of Living". If you live in the UK you've probaly been on top of the summits he mentions in the first verse, and maybe even considered having your dust and ashes scattered on some high place, as he sings about in the last.
He wrote it when, as an old man, he finally realised he was too unwell ever again to reach the tops of the hills that he loved so much in life.

Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMsXFALeGIY

Or how about Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AratTMGrHaQ

Fleetwood Mac's self-titled "Fleetwood Mac" has a number of mountain themes...

but especially "Crystal"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Byw9AdGGh0g

(& "Warm Ways" & "Landslide")

Not "get pumped up" music, but Perfect for the drive in or the drive out!

--------------------
p.s. throw Pink Floyd's "Fearless" from Meddle in there too

I like music that keeps me moving quickly:

Soilwork, Hatebreed, Madball, Full Blown Chaos, Fear Factory, Slayer, (OLD Metallica), Static X, old Lamb of God and Shadows Fall just to name a few... Once on a summit, I'll turn off the iPod, or switch over to some Rush.
