Frank’s Roadtrip Collection 2010

Frank's Roadtrip Collection 2010Last summer I did quite a bit of roadtripping on my bike.  And without music it tends to become pretty repetitive. So I started riding with earbuds (which you still want to use to dull the noise) and an mp3 player. But as most albums have their bad parts and it’s hard to skip songs when you’re riding at 110km/h, I decided to put together a roadtrip collection.

This collection features music from the last 60 years or so, but the focus is mainly on 70’s rock. I’ve been going through thousands of songs, made many revisions and kept only the ones that really works for me, over and over. Of course, it wasn’t the only thing I listened to while riding, but it’s still over 6 hours straight. Originally the list was 130+ songs, but now it’s down to 88. An example of a removed song is Guns & Roses – Paradise City. Sure, it’s a great song, but only if you listen to it once or twice a year. After 7-8 times in 3 months you kind of want to skip that song when it comes up.

A small warning: Several of the remaining songs are related to my childhood and what we listened to in the car when I was very young. Mostly the country songs. 😉 A few of the songs are also in Swedish.

Oh well, to the list! Since several several artists occurs more than once in the list, I usually sort it by song title, not by artist:
