Songs we played while caching

Recommended Posts

When we went for the hunt to day, here's the songs we played:


1. On the way to the site - "Don't Stop Believing" - Journey - to get us ready

2. After the find - "Another one bites the dust" - Queen

3. and after a quick and fruitless search for a 2nd (didn't look hard enough to post a DNF)

- "I still haven't found what I'm looking for" - U2


What are you playing when you're caching?

whatever happens to be playing on Sirius - 80's hairbands, or 90's alternative, or some of the current stuff.

Switch to Sirius 35, the Chill Channel. I can't get my radio to change from that. I've got some great stuff on my iPod now, about 4.5 hours of iTunes goodies. I'm rocking out to the cache.


And for fellow forum members... I've got nothing but love for ya'...


(Starring a certain geocacher from the Orlando area.)

Run Around -Blues Traveler- "Why You Wanna Give Me a Run-Around, Is It a Sure-Fire Way to Speed Things Up, When All It Does is Slow Me Down."


I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For -U2- "I Have Crawled, These City Walls, Only To Be With You, But I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, But I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For


You Can't Always Get What You Want -Rolling Stones- "You Can't Always Get What You Want, But If You Try Sometimes-You Might Just Find, You Get What You Need"


Amazing Grace - "I Once Was Lost, But Now Am Found."

Allright, this topic was made for me; geocaching and music are my number 1 and 2 hobbies (hence the name :unsure: )


OK, so the first song that came into my head:

Into the Great Wide Open - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers


Then taking a quick scan through my iTunes:


Its a Long Way to the Top - ACDC


Man In the Box - Alice in Chains


Roam - B-52's


Shoebox - Barenaked Ladies (as long as it's water proof)


Round the Bend - The Beta Band


Long Lost - Better Than Ezra


Lost Together - Blue Rodeo


The Truck Got Stuck - Corb Lund


OK, so some of those are a stretch. But pretty darn good IMHO for only getting up to "c"


To be continued....

Although we don't listen to music while out caching, this topic got me to thinking what song would come to mind if we did. Hmmm....I thought and what comes to mind is the "Hokie Pokie" You stick your right arm in, you pull your right arm out, you stick your right arm in and you twist it all about, you do the hokie pokie and you turn yourself around...that's what it's all about! :huh:
