Look no further for your newest workout playlist. Originally creating this mix for Tucson’s Tuesday Night Bike Ride for 100+ riders, Tom gifted us this heart-pumping, lively selection of songs for Good JuJu’s February Spotify picks.
This playlist is a collection of songs best suited for riding around Tucson on a Tuesday night. Tuesday Night Bike Ride is a long-standing meet-up of around 100+ riders from all walks of life who begin an evening ride from Old Main every Tuesday night. A big part of the ride is playing music as loud as you can, so I put together some songs that are fun to ride to. If you happen to be downtown on Tuesday night and see a group of people on bikes taking over the streets, give them a “Happy Tuesday” shout!
Vinta – Crumb
I love the jazzy feel of the drums on this song. It’s easy to listen to and provides a nice groove for riding your bike to.
Since You Asked Kindly – BADBADNOTGOOD
Keeping the jazz drumming going into the second song, this track has some of the best hi-hat patterns and ghost notes I have ever heard, you can’t help but nod your head.
White Sky – Vampire Weekend
This song always puts me in a good mood. It feels lighthearted and optimistic. Perfect for the beginning of the week.
This Must Be The Place – Talking Heads
Makes you feel good inside!
Killer – XIXA
This is from a local band that plays cumbia style rock. The rhythm to this song is incredible.
I’m Sleepin’ In – King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Very chill, easy-to-listen-to song to bring the pace of a ride down a bit. They are also coming to Tucson in April!
Golden Brown – The Stranglers
I like how mellow and relaxing this song is. It’s also used in an iconic scene in the movie Snatch If you know, you know.
Endors Toi – Tame Impala
Listening to this song makes you feel like you’re in some sort of dream. Perfect for floating around town on a bike.
Temptation (7” Version) – New Order
Another feel good banger!
Brother Sport – Animal Collective
I play this song on every ride I go on. It’s weird and that’s all there is to it but everytime you listen to Animal Collective you pick up on something different. Watch the music video to get the full experience.
Stay tuned for Mikey’s Mix in March.
