Trials Christmas #1

16 posts in this topic

Let's have a bit of fun. 

 

Post up what you think is the best soundtrack/song used in a trials video in the comments. 

The lead up to Christmas I'll post up a poll of the most popular ones and let that run up to Christmas day.

Could spend all day thinking about this and still not come up with an answer.

All three of the below are complete cliche, but in my mind all three videos are pretty iconic for their 'genres' of trials. When I hear any of the songs i immediately think of the video regardless of where I am. If i had to choose one then Toxicity...such a good video / song choice.

Old school: Toxicity by System of a down from "Toxicity - Trials kings" - https://youtu.be/42Pvyrcdp8s

TGS street: Lying from You by Linkin Park from 'Gilles & Giacomo coustellier in nottingham" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0EV2FZPugc

Street trials: The funeral by Band of horses from 'Inspired Bicycles - Danny MacAskill April 2009' - https://youtu.be/Z19zFlPah-o

If I have to pick one it would be The Distance by Cake from what I think was Danny Mac's first video? Back when videos could go viral from being called Mountain Bike Trickster and automatically generated thumbnails. I can't not list the honourable mentions that I still listen to regularly when I ride... The TGS rock music thing never really did it for me, I'm pretty darn mellow.

Jon Byrne - Cigarette Song (Rowan John's CS video, and now I've finally realised CS most likely stands for Cigarette Song...)

Slackstring - Sunday Jen (Ben Travis - Sunday)

The Album Leaf - Always For You (Mike Bentham - Monday)

Hermitude ft. Steve Clisby (Lewis Greenhalgh video I can't find anymore) 

Little Dragon - Twice (Joel Bennett - Twice)

The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist (East Coast Trials 2 - Dave Dennis 2003)

I don't actually remember many songs from videos. Band of Horses has been mentioned already so I'll go with what introduced me to riding with ska:

Shootin' Goon - MTV / Do the Goon intro from Matt Berridge's Do the Goon Again vid.

Also, from @aener 's Jezebel vid, Iron & Wine - Jezebel.

None of them are my favourite music, but in terms of working with the video... Yeah. They're the ones that first come to mind, anyway.

I was also going to mention Rowan’s video and music combos, they were class :) 

 

but seeing as that’s been covered, I’m going to mention Andy Ts Vincent Hermance in Colorado (2?) video with Arcade Fire and possibly Modest Mouse? 
 

I remember those being watched on repeat, the riding was the best I’d seen and the music helps the hype... so good!

I also really liked the beach section from crux, the beat and the riding just fitted perfectly.
