Cycle Song

Quick, sing a song about a bicycle.  I know you can.  So many songs have been recorded by so many artists, it's hard to think anyone would not know at least one.

"Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do..." sang HAL, the rogue computer in 2001, A Space Odyssey, a line from a song most commonly known as A Bicycle Built For TwoQueen sang of a Bicycle Race, and even exhorted the Fat Bottom Girls to "Get on your bikes and ride!"

Kraftwerk gave us Tour de France,  and bands a s diverse as Pink Floyd and Red Hot Chili Peppers sang of human-powered two-wheelers.

One of these days, I'll make the modern equivalent of a mix-tape (a playlist on my iPod) consisting of nothing but bike songs...
