2003 Pikes Peak Song Mix

For my MP3 Player

Chances are no will care about this list of songs, except for me. People like different types of music and different songs inspire them. These did it for me. All these songs have great, inspiring music and beats with some urgency in them. The singers frequently bleed the lines. They make me believe that they believe what they sing. I need to have that emotional content, whether imagined or real, whether in the lyrics, the way the song’s sung, or the music.



Inspiring Line


Ryan Adams

This is where the summer ends
in a flash of pure destruction



Can you take me higher?
To a place where blind men see?



Moving forward with time to kill. Moving forward is such a thrill. Who’s to say if we make it back alive.

Mulin Rouge

Christina, Pink, Maya, L’li Kim

Gitchy, gitchy, ya ya



I am finally ready to dispose…

That’s the Way Love Is

Poi Dog Pondering

There’s no use in pretending I can hide the pain…

Send Me On My Way

Rusted Root

Send me on my way…

I Melt With You

Moving forward using all my breath. Making love to you was never second best.

Who Made Who


Feel it running down your spine. Nothing’s going to save you one last time.

Resignation Superman

Big Head Todd

Yes I’ll turn my eyes from this...world.

Please Forgive Me

David Gray

Please forgive me if I act a little strange, for I know not what I do. Feels like lightning running through my veins every time I look at you.

Free to Go

Acoustic Alchemy

Free to go. Still too young to leave. Old enough to think I know that no one ever believes.


New Order

Heaven knows it’s got to be this time…


Pearl Jam

I wish I was a neutron bomb for once I could go off. I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on.


Counting Crows

Pull me out from inside…I am ready, I am ready, I am ready. I am fine.
