The three best songs of today’s ride

I had to try out my new shoes, so I did my usual loop around Balboa Park. It was a good ride. One sign of a good ride is a moment where I think “this is a really good bike song.” Today there were three. In order from least to most good (today):

They Might Be Giants: Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

Brian’s favorite band. Their cover is much perkier than the original version.

The Jam – Town Called Malice

A great song that Weezer casually stole and made happy, it would have been number one if not for the last song of the ride…

The Dead Milkmen – Punk Rock Girl

Oh, this song. It would never make any top ten list of mine, but it sure feels good when you’re on the last half mile and you want a little push.
