Ten Worst, Most Morbid Songs to Listen to While Riding Your Bicycle

Page 2 of 5

10. The Smiths - "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out"
This is the absolute worst song to listen to on your bike. It is also totally the best video about biking, ever.

Reasons you shouldn't press play on this ditty while cycling are:
1. It has the power to make you weep, and tears will blur your vision, something necessary for safe riding.
2. It's about theoretically getting hit by a bus.

9. Jim O'Rourke - "Ghost Ship in a Storm"

It only figures/That I'd ride my bike/Into wet cement/And as I'm sinkin'/The last thing that I think/Is did I pay my rent.
This song isn't about getting hit by anything but rather just disappearing into the ground while on a bike. Trippy. While biking, don't trip on psychedelics either, but definitely listen to anything else by Jim O'Rourke.
