Dad Rock Ice Run Playlist

Motorcycling is a sport for those comfortable in their own heads. I can't speak for other Ice Runners and what mental side roads they travelled down while riding, but I took a little inspiration from Ladyhawke Willings (The Adventurists own Hunting Girl) and came up with this playlist from the tunes that rattled around in my head on the way to Salekhard: 
  1. The Revolution Starts... | Steve Earle | The Revolution Starts Now
  2. Back in the U.S.S.R. | The Beatles | White Album
  3. Russians | Sting | The Dream Of The Blue Turtles
  4. (I Never Loved) Eva Braun | The Boomtown Rats | A Tonic for the Troops
  5. Road To Nowhere | Talking Heads | Little Creatures
  6. Come On, Eileen | Dexy's Midnight Runners | To-Uray-Eh!
  7. Don't Eat The Yellow Snow | Frank Zappa | Apostrophe
  8. The Sky Is Fallin' | Queens of the Stone Age | Songs for the Deaf 
  9. Avenue B | Gogol Bordello | Gypsy Punks: Underdog World Strike
  10. Skating Away (On The Thin Ice Of The New Day) | Jethro Tull | War Child
  11. Ain't No Easy Way | Black Rebel Motorcycle Club | Howl
  12. Fix You | Coldplay | X&Y
  13. Gangnam Style | PSY | Gangnam Style
