The Acoustic Motorbike

In 1992, Luka Bloom recorded a song and album entitled The Acoustic Motorbike. Took me a while to hear and understand all the lyrics. The trickiest is just before he says "The Acoustic Motorbike". He says "It's a Muddy" (in spite of what the Bicycle Music page says), by which he refers to a bicycle manufacturer named Muddy Fox.

This category of my blog is dedicated to that song. I'm always careful to give it a lusty sing, as loud as I can, with the breath that I have, given the terrain I'm riding. Sometimes that means singing out while breathing in, which is a trick, let me tell you.
