I'm not sure if I'm surprised that very few people picked Gangsta Rap... but whenever I'm solo hiking my ipod is full of it! Here's a good one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9IXAJg4Vm0

I'm a hip hop artist so sue me :)

You definitely don't wanna see meet anyone at the crossroads while climbing

ps I thought you were supposed to put the link inside the youtube tags like html

Seems like people might be having some trouble with this so I'll explain...

Since we're on a movie soundtrack theme... How about: "The Grid" (Remixed by the Crystal Method) - Tron: Legacy Reconfigured

I seem to like the voice overs for hiking. Having Jeff Bridges talk to me on my last approach worked well.

"The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships, motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day... Heh heh. That's right, man... I got in!"





Yes, it's a Walt Disney but it's Daft Punk remixed by the Crystal Method.
"You got in"

I have been enjoying listening to podcasts like "This American Life" or "Stuff You Should Know" while hiking, I listened to a great 1 hour interview with Sugar Ray Leonard while on Little Bear recently, he was asked if he ever felt like quitting and said "a fighter NEVER quits"..... that was in the back of my mind for the rest of the day. The distraction makes time & distance seem to go by faster for me also.
People must think me an idiot when I suddenly start laughing out loud for no apparent reason.

I don't need to listen to music on my hike. Rather the hiking gods have been punishing me by inserting a 24-hour Power Station "Some Like it Hot" dance party in my head since I did Yale like 4 weeks ago! This is what happens when you start flipping the stations at home while packing your hiking stuff in front of the 80s video hour on the TV . ](*,) Somebody please give me the antidote!
Yes, must agree - Tron Legacy is tops!

Just accept it and start singing and serenading others on the trail and on the summit. The 80s rule and 70s freedom rock is sweet too.

As for me, I'll be sitting there on the summit all quiet and melancholy (like Steve Perry at the beginning of this music video) and will feel like breaking into the first verse of this song!

The antidote is headphones on the hike!

For all of you still changing your mind... this one is for you.

Regardless of whether you get the chance to get up into the mountains this weekend or not, this tune should get you smilin' and groovin' on a Friday.

I mostly listen to Todd Rundgren while summiting 14ers:

Todd Rundgren - Runt (1971)
Todd Rundgren - Something/Anything (1972)
Todd Rundgren - A Wizard, A True Star (1973)
Todd Rundgren - Todd! (1974)

I will likely put some early solo McCartney and Wings on my i-pod when I come back for Elbert in August.
