If your skiing could be described by a song.... - Page 2

Another one that pops into my head is the Yes lyrics

In and around the lake
Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there

Yes Todd is here quite frequently. I'm sure he will catch your posts. or put up a new post on the general ski forum. I'm sure he would be happy to hear from you.

The first time I heard Stuck in the Moment was at Bormio. I was totally stuck in the moment and depressed about the bad lessons I was getting. I use that song to remind me to just get over myself already!

Ok, honestly, can you people tell me you've never heard the song "Sugar Magnolia" by the grateful dead going through your head when you were skiing? I think that sound is cool, it flows, it's smooth, but not slow.

"There are trails with signs, and there are those with out...Which trail will you chose?"

Hey Bob,

You're welcome, and I'm glad you got out there! Its been a couple of years for me, how was it? Since its early season and we're chomping at the bit I'm sure everbody here would love details about your Montezuma trip - though we might get a bit jealous!

Cheap seats - I hear ya.

Sometimes at the end of a run it's definitely "My Way", and/or Amazing Grace.

Born to be Wild, I Want to Take You Higher and Proud Mary (Tina Turner's version) all also come to mind.

Roto. "Warriors of the Wasteland" is a great one. Every time I hear it I think of Greg Stump's line..."Notice the back hand-spring OVER the crevasse." Effing Classic!! It usually only pops in there when I taco myself into a tower pad or something.

Man I am a little new school these days.


Forfeit the game / Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame / Puts your name to shame
Cover up your face / You can’t run the race
The pace is too fast / You just can’t last

A song to RIP by . . .

Wow! If we did "EPICSKI: THE MOVIE" could you imagine the soundtrack?
post #44 of 82
Notorious Spag,

That movie will always be my favorite. Blizzard of Aaaahs, the Testpiece of ski cinema.

Jah Houphet(sp?) the Alpha Blondy song during the Telluride?Rasta Stevie sec. is another fave, more for 'the life' than just skiing, but still...I found a great version of that song, Jah Houphet(Nous Parle) as a spoken word performance backed by the music..great.

Speaking of Telluride. I heard a story about how it got it's name. There was a narrow guage mining trolley that went into the mountain mines. When the miners loaded up they used to depart with the phrase "to hell you ride." As people are wont to do when exhausted, affected buy noxious gases, fumes and lung sediment, the pronunciation degraded to the quicker, "T'ell ya ride," thus Telluride. I expect it is true, as it sounds plausible, but I don't really know.

I liked when a loudspeaker at Les Deux Alpes played the remix of "Tom's Diner" (the Suzanne Vega a cappela song). For some reason, during a lesson I got quite taken with the Grateful Dead's "Uncle John's Band."

Maybe since I get hit a lot, the right song for me would be "Fall on Me" (REM, no?).

Whoa, Uncle John's Band! "Well the first days are the hardest days don't you worry any more. Cause when life looks like easy street there is danger at your door".
Definitely my theme when I first started skiing!<FONT size="1">

Gonzostrike. You say it like there is something wrong with stereotypical pooftah disco. If it weren't for Frankie, how would crap artists like Bryan Adams (sorry Robin) ever have made it big? Frankie Goes to Hollywood made it OK to make money without having any talent.

Spag's quote of the day:
"i'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me..."
- Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsoy" -

Ahem – some of you may remember (and some of you may prefer to forget) that the second of the 'front four' immutable tenets of XSCHUSS (Xtreme South Carolina Heavenly Unification Skiing System) was, "Ski a Song!"

Anyway, I'm ALWAYS humming something to myself - usually improvised - whether I'm skiing or not. (The ONLY thing I love more than skiing is making music.) However, in this context, the one that comes to mind is, "If I only had a brain," the Scarecrow's song from, "The Wizard of Oz!"

BE the skis!

"I could while away the hours, conversing with the "followers".....if I only had a brain"!

Frankie did another cool tune. Rage Hard. It's on the same alb as Warriors.

>>ause hen life lookslike easy street there is danger at your door".<<

What, is that from the 'der faderland' mix? Or was Jerry a Kraut and I didn't know it?

On steep stuff for me its the Cowardly lion's chorus! Maybe I should try Whistle a Happy Tune! Especially the part that says "Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect".<FONT size="1">

VK. I hope I'm wrong here, because that would mean I am a complete loser... Is that WHAM!? I guess I just never put George Micheal and skiing on the same page before.

The one song you probably should NOT sing when you are in ski class:
Take me over the edge, make me lose control
post #58 of 82
Oh, I don't know. I can think of some cases where you might want to sing that in ski class. Depends upon whose teaching. BTW, LM, about your Buffy fan fiction, dont quit your day job.

So, Bethany. What tune describes your skiing?
post #60 of 82
Well, since I ski better then most of the dudes I hang with, but not 97% better, it would have to be She's So High.

Like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, and Aphrodite.
