Here’s a tip for my fellow bike commuters (of which there are MANY reading this I’m sure!): Linkin Park’s “Breaking the Habit” has got to be one of the best tunes to cycle to EVER. It has a pulsing, hypnotic guitar line that always makes me think of the “making love on a real train” scene in “Risky Business“. I find myself falling into the same rhythm and just flying down the road.
Of course I also find myself trying to imagine how the song would sound if a 1950’s teen idol sang it in a swing band style. Damn you, Paul Anka! Get out of my head!!!
