Race Songs from Hell... What's Yours?

Post by Gord Woolle » Fri, 11 Jul 1997 04:00:00


I am compiling a list of heinous songs that have haunted the minds of
rst.ers during races or in training. You know the ones... those awful
70s disco songs that pop into your head and drive you mental.

The list will go into the Onatrio Assoc. of Triathletes magazine in
September.

Thanks in advance

Got a new time trial bike - titanium serotta in very red.  It looks big, so
I nicknamed it "Big Red"  Had the jingle from the tv commercial going
through my head for the entire bike leg of the Spud Triathlon in MD.   I
did pass a bunch of drafting guys like they were standing still.  Hard to
say whether "Big Red" helped, but my bike sure did!

Here are some:

  - "Staying alive" by the Bee Gees (ugh!)
  - Don't know if this is the title, but, "Have you ever heard that you're
my hero" by       Bette Midler (ugh!, ugh!)
  - "Angel of Death" by Slayer ( ug...wait... this one gave me a fast
time, but drove       me mental in the process. If you ever heard of
Slayer, you know what I mean.          ;-)

"Iron" Pete Priolo

I already stated this on another thread, but I recently had
"Stars and Stripes Forever" stuck in my head on a 20 mile run.
Too much 4th of July celebration.

Hell, for me, is a long ride with Gloria Estafan running through my head.
I *must* remember to be careful which radio station I stop at in the car
while driving to the starting point for my rides.  

Someday, when I need a boost during a race, I'll whistle "It's a Small
World."  That should get a few other competitors to drop out.  Hee hee.

I've got a confession to make, during my first tri a couple months ago I
had the song "Boogie Oogie Oogie" stuck in my head during the run, and it
actually HELPED me, especially the part where they sing "Get on UP...".

What is really bad is that I am female, but that is the song that turns on
when I start to hit the "wall".

It was The***ies, Roy. I used to have their first album 'Incredible
Shrinking...***ies' on bright yellow vinyl.

Incidently, I've always thought the perfect triathlon tune was
'Sunglasses after Dark' by The Cramps - never been sore enough to try
singing it though :*)

Aah, showing my age, eh?!

I now have a new song stuck in my head...

Took my kids out to see the premier showing of... you guessed it,

"George of the Jungle"

Now I'm stuck with that drum beat and "Watch out for that tree!!!"
constantly poping into my head.
