To date we’ve found over 100 music videos featuring bicycles. Typically the first that comes to people’s minds are Queen Bicycle Race, Kraftwerk Tour de France, Flobots Handlebars and, of course, Sesame Street ride a bike.
Robin Thicke’s When I Get You Alone pays homage to 80’s and early 90’s New York Bike Messenger’s as dose the film and sound track video for Quicksilver. The film tells the story of a young stock trader (played by Kevin Bacon), who, after a bad day on the market, during which he manages to lose a fortune for his company as well as his parents’ savings, abandons Yuppiedom, and takes a job as a bicycle courier. He uncovers a sinister web of murder and intrigue in this exhilarating urban mystery.
The Smiths Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before and Style Council’s My Ever Changing Moods reminds us of cycling in England in the 80’s.
Though we may not understand the lycrics when it comes to favourite videos featuring bicycles it’s hard not to love Tare Lugnt 4 Hejdå (Cleo) That’s a lot of chicks on bikes, or are they ducks?
Doomtree Drumsticks with cruisers, BMX’s, fixes, dutch bikes, road bikes, mountain bikes, thin and fat tyres and old skool clunkers proves together we can all ride.
Mark Ronson, The Business Intl. The Bike Song gives us great fun spotting local London streets we know well.
Personally I love Flight of the Conchords Ep 7 Mutha Uckers I love the humour as well as the fact that they are putting safety first, helmets are important folks!!
