How 'bout a whole CD's worth?

Art Sirota is a classic British motorcycle enthusiast and put his musical talents to work to make the "Norton Songs" CD. Lighthearted stuff, and kinda off-the-wall, but entertaining. You don't need a Norton to enjoy it, and anyone who has messed around with classic machinery will relate.

Thompson has performed it live here in WV. Says it was based on his dad's bike and how the old man court his mom.

An specific motorcycle story

e.g. Born to Be Wild by Stepenwolf or Born to Run by The Boss are general motorcycle theme songs. A Crazy Little Called Love referes to taking a long ride on a motorbike.
You are right, songs were the the motorcycle is part of the action, like the
billy joel song
sorry if i wasnt more specific
and thanks for the help

I know it's been said, but 1952 Vincent Black Lightning. Of course I thought that was by Richard Thompson (at least the version I have says it is...)

There's also a group called Motorcycle that's done a song called "As the Rush Comes," although I think it's more about drug use. Good, mellow tune, but it's definately more techno. Most of the songs already suggested in this topic are classic rock.

Another suggestion, not about motorcycles, but if you've seen the movie "Faster," is the song "Whatever Happened to my Rock and Roll." Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. I think you want the "punk version/pung song". After watching Faster, I think I'll always associate that song with bikes.

Then there's Tom Cochrane- Life is a Highway

Also found this:

And finally someone else's list of road songs:

Hope that helps

yes all will work

A couple more from Billy Idol...

If you're into Billy Idol check out Blue Highway from his Rebel Yell album and Summer Running from his Devil's Playground album...
