Heading up for some fall turns… again, Soundgarden. It’s pretty much the only time I listen to it.

I'm one that can't even have music or talk on the radio when driving, and i used to spend 3 hrs/day to/from construction sites. When in motion, i just like peace and quiet insofar as it exists. :) I do play loud music in the shop, though; & never minded when others had good stuff going on jobs.

On the slopes last year, apparently the lifties in the top shack of the main chair were allowed to bring their own tunes to blast on the PA. I was impressed that one kid seemed to have the entire VU catalog and was playing from it randomly. Surprisingly, more than one was not necessarily out of place skiing. But "Heroin" is almost perfect for a parody by someone more talented (when i'm rushing on my run......feel just like jesus' son.....).

Years ago, the somewhat obscure Nazareth tune "Flying" certainly set the mood, and the kind of basic lyrics themselves would take very little substitution to be a perfect direct skiing reference. ("Even though i'm skiing.....)

"Sail" by AWOL Nation also makes me immediately think of standing at the top, and then the drop. But that might be because i first heard it when someone sent me this clip a decade ago.

This is the first one that came to my mind, I know a lot of you probably remember this film:

I've been into the album Nonagon Infinity by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard as my ski jam the last few seasons.

My daughter likes to play AC/DC every morning. Funny she only plays it when we go snow sking. But the whole Eliminator album reminds me of sking. In my skibum days in winter park in the 80's, I had a 1 room cabin next to the shuttle, all the skibums would drop by in the morning and I would be cranking this album!!

Off topic but I got such a kick watching those guys/gals throwing the old long thin boards around. Grew up with those boards but not nostalgic. The modern ski is so much better

When I think of long drives on my college XC team it's 80s progressive rock/new wave etc. Like REM and U2

Now, it's stuff from ski videos like


"Hips don't lie"


and


"Can't Hold Us." My boy loves this song as pump up music when we arrive at a mountain.

When I drive alone lately it's been a lot of songs from Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) but not when the boy is with me - too much cursing and violence.

Definitely This Is The Sea (by The Waterboys). A real "sound of music" dancing-on-the-mountaintop, ain't-it-good-to-be-alive song.


These things you keep
You better throw 'em all away
You wanna turn your back
On your soulless days

Once you were tethered
And now you are free
Once you were TETHERED
Well, now you are free
That was the river
This is the sea

This Is The Sea

OK, many of you may think this is a weird association, but this just gets me dancing with the rhythm when skiing.
