Snowboarding

7 and a half awesome classics for snowboarding

When you start your snowboarding day, up at the top of a slope. One of the first questions I answer to myself is. Am I going to run with music? When “Yes.”, the next struggle: “What should I listen to?”. I want energy and movement in my music and for some reason recent music doesn’t offer it to me. Classic pop/rock music from the end of the 70’s and 80’s does.

So for you, o reader mine, I’ve composed a list of seven (and a half) classic pop/rock songs from this music era which will help you bounce and twirl off the mountain feeling fantastic, it does for me!

1.Blue Swede – Hooked on a feeling

This is my littoral number one. Starting the day with “Ooga chaka, ooga chaka” is amazing. Plus it feels a bit like doing a snow dance for future powder day’s.

2.Pilot – Magic

“Dreaming on your pillow in the morning” or just happy that you are out again? Just push this song into your cassette Walkman (or imagine doing it). Pushing aside the snow on your board really does feel like magic doesn’t it.

5.Cheap Trick – Surrender

Sometimes the cheapest tricks are the best (to do over and over). When you are thinking about mommy and daddy on the more scary parts of the slopes. This song will in any case put a smile on your face.

4.The Jackson 5 – I want you back

Something really classic on number four. Especially when you are dreaming about that powder day that just doesn’t want to come along. I want you back pow!

5.Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell – Ain’t no mountain high enough

Great song for when you are out with your significant other on the mountain. The duet forges a connection on the mountain even when you are the only one hearing the song. It’s lovely as fuck.

6.David Bowie – Suffragette City

Want something to “Put your spine out-of-place”. This song has great energy, specific for those faster runs. Awesome for those faster runs with rowdy jumps on rougher slopes.

7.The Runaways – Cherry Bomb

Feeling a bit rebellious? This song will cultivate that feeling and push it out like an avalanche, pun intended. The consistent rhythm is great to make nice and tight turns on soft snow.

7,5. The Sneepers ft. David Hasslehoff – Guardians Inferno

Not that much of a classic! Still gives you a heroic feeling. But how could it be otherwise with David Hasslehoff. WE ARE GROOT!

Bonus: Electric Light Orchestra – Mr. Blue Sky

You must be disappointed with that last song if you are into the classics. So to make it up this song. It makes me spin on my snowboard!

So that was the complete list of 9 songs I love when I’m on the slopes, besides them or just somewhere on the mountain with my Snowboard. You can listen to this list on Spotify, right here.
