Shay’s shredding music

23 Dec, 2008

Last year I wrote about riding with music, but things have changed with how I listen to my music and my playlist.

I’m still using my Ipod Nano which over the past year has held up really well. Basically it still works, I haven’t lost it yet and I still have room for more songs. I just got 1,000 hits of the 80’s so I’ve been trying to go through those and select my favorites.

Instead of the Burton headphone beanie, which I’ve used once this year…I’m spending the majority of my time in the Skullcandy headphones over my beanie of choice which is either Coal or Bula. I’ve got a Bula stereohead beanie that I’ll start trying out on the mountain and reviewing as well.

I often listen to music when riding, especially in the halfpipe. When I’m on runs, I try to keep the volume so I can hear sounds around me and stay aware of my surroundings.

Here’s my current snowboarding playlist:

  • Busta Rhymes – I love my bitch
  • The Clash – Straight to Hell
  • Scott Sullivan – Scarlet Utopia
  • Ladytron – Seventeen
  • MGMT – Kids
  • Heart of Palm – Stand Back Up
  • T.I. – Whatever you like
  • TeddyBears – Punkrocker
  • Scott Sulivan – Calling for the dissolution
  • Architecture in Helsinki – Frenchy, I’m faking
  • MGMT – Time to Pretend
  • Weezer – Troublemaker
  • The Grouch – The bay to LA
  • Weezer – Lullaby for Wayne
  • Hearts of Palm – Going home
  • Felix Da Housecat – Ready 2 wear
  • Alice in Videoland – Going down
  • Le Tigre – Deceptacon
  • Flogging Molly – Black Friday Rule
  • TV on the Radio – Wolf like me
  • Markus Schulz – Perfect
  • Silversun Pickups – Rusted Wheel
  • Beck – Volcano
  • The Faint – Agenda Suicide
  • Caesars – Jerk it Out
  • Teddybears Stockholm – Yours to keep
  • Postal Service – Such Great Heights
  • Dungen – Jamna Plagor
  • Tokyo Police Club – Nature of the Experiment
  • Beck – Nobody’s fault but my own
  • Gnarl’s Barkley – Smiley Faces
  • Murder by Death – Fuego!
  • Dinosaur Jr – Budge
