Who sings "WOO HOO!" song? Great ski tunes?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
My daughter and I love this kick a** song where the refrain phrase is WOO HOO. It's a great song just perfect for blaring on the radio on the way to the hill. She'd like to download it but we don't know the title or artist. Can anybody help. Also what inspirational ski tunes do you like?

The band is Blur and the song is "Song 2."

Music is second only to skiing in my life. Coming from a true modern music appreciater (read: record store clerk music snob), here are some of my favorite ski albums:

Big Black- The Rich Man's Eight Track Tape
Blood Brothers- Crimes
Blur- Parklife
Brian Wilson- Smile (PERFECT for bluebird sky days)
Cursive- The Ugly Organ
Daft Punk- Homework
Gang of Four- Entertainment!
The Go! Team- Thunder Lightning Strike
Husker Du- Zen Arcade
Iggy and the Stooges- Raw Power
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion- Now I Got Worry
Kanye West- Late Registration
LCD Soundsystem- S/T
Minor Threat- Complete Discography
Minutemen- Double Nickels on the Dime
Mogwai- every album they've ever made
My Bloody Valentine- Loveless
Pixies- Surfer Rosa
R.L. Burnside- Come On In
Radiohead- OK Computer
Rites of Spring- End on End
Sigur Ros- every album
Sonic Youth- Daydream Nation, Sister, Confusion is Sex, Kill Yr Idols


I think that's it. Maybe I'll get back to you.

Get the MSP movies Yearbook or the new Hit List. Your daughter will love them and after repeated viewings the songs that accompany the incredible big-mountain segments drill themselves into your mind and become default ski songs.
The music is well-chosen - mostly rock and hip-hop.

I thought you were referring to the WOO HOO song that plays on the Vonage commercial - you know the one where the guy is cutting down a tree and it falls on his car parked nearby... once you hear that tune it stays stuck for a while.

That one is by the 5,6,7,8's, and can be found on the Kill Bill Vol. 1 Soundtrack...

I've got a playlist on the other computer, I'll post it tonight....

One that got a lot of play last winter was Fu Manchu's "King of the Road" Album...

I assembled the soundtrack to Hit List off of the apple music store to listen to on the way up to the slopes. Great mix of songs.

Blur: Song 2

I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasn’t easy
But nothing is, no

When I feel heavy metal
And I’m pins and I’m needles
Well I lie and I’m easy
All of the time but I’m never sure when I need you
Pleased to meet you

I got my head done
When I was young
It’s not my problem
It’s not my problem

When I feel heavy metal
And I’m pins and I’m needles
Well I lie and I’m easy
All of the time but I’m never sure when I need you
Pleased to meet you

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Oh, yeah

"Sympathy for the Devil"
post #11 of 20
nice list. I'd probably take the whole list except "Smile".

I never have understood the Brian Wilson/Beach Boys fascination, their fey attitude prefiguring the pantywaist singing of David Gates and the downfall of Scud Mountain Boys morphing into Pernice Bros hollywood soundtrack music. Joe Pernice's voice has better uses than accompaniment to Musical Karo Syrup. Some musicians ought to let Burt Bacharach be the only Burt Bacharach.

my own would be shorter but similar.

SY: Sister / Daydream Nation
Built to Spill: Perfect from Now On / Live
Luna: Bewitched / Penthouse / Live
Yo La Tengo: May I Sing With Me / I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One
Scud Mountain Boys: Pine Box-Early Year / Massachusetts
The New Pornographers: Electric Version
The Shins: Chutes Too Narrow
Thievery Corporation: The Richest Man in Babylon / Sounds from the Thievery Hi-Fi
Atmosphere: The Lucy Ford
Aesop Rock: Float
...and You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead: Source Tags & Codes / Worlds Apart
Juno: A Future Lived in Past Tense
Jets to Brazil: Orange Rhyming Dictionary
Uncle Tupelo: Anodyne / Still Feel Gone
Son Volt: Trace / Wide Swing Tremolo
Jay Farrar: Stone, Steel & Bright Lights
Explosions in the Sky: Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever
The Men of Porn: Experiments in Feedback
Queens of the Stone Age: R / Songs for the Deaf
Spoon: Girls Can Tell / Gimme Fiction
Pavement: Wowee Zowee
The Grifters: Ain't My Lookout
Cheri Knight: The Northeast Kingdom

Thanks ONYXJL. That's the WOO HOO we were looking for. I went skiing yesterday for the 1st time this year. (Devilshead, WI., snow was ok) I can't recall a better day we had this year together. I'm 47 and beautiful daughter is 13. Skiing and music melt away our generational differences. Life's good!

(w)hoo hoo

also shows up in chorus/background on the rolling stones's Sympathy For The Devil.

Tell me baby, what’s my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, what’s my name
I tell you one time, you’re to blame
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who
Ooo, who, who

Not to be mistaken for the who's "Who Are You (hoo hoo, hoo hoo)"

Just removed David Van Rock and put in the 5.6.7.8's "Early Singles Bomb the Rocks" Cut 5 is Woo Hoo.

A Ramones inspired girl group from Japan singing songs in english. Cover has them in black leather astride a 1960's BSA twin.

Good Stuff.
