    Default Schooling Music...Need Ideas!

    I am going through my ipod and making a playlist of riding songs to listen to while schooling. What songs are on your playlist?

    Burlesque - from "Burlesque"
    Supermassive Black Hole - Muse
    Decode - Paramore
    15 Step - Radiohead
    Midnight - Yaz
    Sunday Morning - Maroon 5
    Sweet Disposition - The Temper Trap
    Teeth - Lady Gaga (I want to do a freestyle to this BADLY! LOL)
    The Planets - Holst

    I like to mix up my playlist so there is a "warm-up" section - then it kicks into trot work and extensions, rounded out with canter work and then a cool down time. I've noticed I get a much better work out and ride when I listen to music vice not having any music on

    @Petstorejunkie

    THANKS for the links! I'm going to be adding more music to my iPod Never knew of Andrew Bird....THANK YOU....can't wait to ride to some of that.

    I forgot another great artist...John Digweed! Check this out:

    I LOVE his album - "Bedrock"...circa 1999. It's a 2 disc compilation...FABULOUS techno blends.

    If I ever get to do a freestyle...it's going to be some funky music...LOL.

    Bond- classical music with a beat...
    This one is a tad fast... but it's a fun one

    Mike posted this one quite a while ago. It's alot of fun to ride to too...

    Obviously Pirates of the Carribean OST is a blast to ride to, as well.

    It's dancy!

    and, though some people hate it, country music can give you a nice steady beat (my little QH loves it).
