Was thinking about the good old days when a mix tape was a fun thing to do. I thought it would be good to get a collection of retro tunes together for use on the turbo and then thought it would be cool to make up a compilation using one tune from each macretro punter. I might even burn a few cd's if anyone wants one.

So looking for your top tune from BITD when you were riding- with a preference for upbeat cycling/driving type songs. when I get to about a cd's worth I will try and filtch the tunes from the internet and put it together.

My poptastic tune is "She bangs the drum" by the roses.......

I always liked riding fast downhills to Motorhead by Primal Scream as found on the Vanishing Point album.

Has the added benefit that you can pretend you're in a Lucozade advert.
