A List Maker's Life: Think Spring With Me Here...

Think Spring With Me Here...

It all started when I said,
"What a pretty bicycle... I want one just like that."
Bicycle Song by Orbit

So, for my birthday
"I got a bike
You can ride it if you like
It's got a basket [well, actually a baby seat]
A bell that rings
And things to make it look good"
~Bike by Pink Floyd

Now, "life's like a road that [I] travel on...Sometimes I turn my back to the wind...Come ride with me to the distant shore. We won't hesitate, to break down the garden gate. There's not much time left today. Life is a highway, I wanna ride it all night long. If you're going my way, I wanna drive it all night long." Life is a Highway by Rascal Flatts

My new mantra will be
"Bicyclye, Bicycle, Bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like"
Bicycle Race by Queen

I might even challenge you to a race, think Chariots of Fire by Vangelis!

Watch out though because "this wheel's on fire, rolling down the road."
The Wheel's on Fire by Bob Dylan

Am I on the "highway to the danger zone?"
Highway to the Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins

I certainly hope not!

Anyway... my "vintage" pink Schwinn bicycle requires a special riding tune to call it's own. I'm taking nominations for the best bike riding beats. Please leave a comment with your suggestions, so I can be sure to download the #1 riding song on my iPod when I test drive my NEW bike!


  1. I searched but I think the Pink Floyd song you referenced fits the very best. Although the Chariots of Fire is an interesting thought! I love your bike, it will be so much fun this summer - stay off the sidewalks world, Katie has her Schwinn!

  2. How fun! Hope your rides are more frequent this summer. We'll look for you as we are cruisin' with the fam! ~J

  3. I love this bike! You should post it on Pink Saturday, http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ sometime. And I love the dinner at our house picture!

  4. I love your bike post! That was very entertaining to read! Ooooo and Schwinn too! Very fancy. Cute blog!

  5. That is so cute! I love it! The only bike song I can think of is the Queen one you already mentioned, and the "No Handlebars" song by Flobots, but that really has nothing to do with biking! :) Enjoy that pink thing...someday this snow will melt and you will be flying down the streets of Tulip Town.

  6. One more thing...where on earth did you see that bike? I am so envious!

  7. Most deffinetly Queen is my favorite! Im not going to lie thats one of my favorite songs of all time! I have it on my Ipod!

  8. Leah thinks your bike is so cool!


Thanks for taking a moment to comment. I love to hear from you!
