Songs of the Summer- 2014

21 Jul


Recently, I posed the question to my favorite FB folks on the “Former Cycling Pingers” group about what they thought was the ‘song of the summer 2014’. There were a lot of comments on this one and here is what the ‘FCP’ers are saying:

1. Maps by Maroon 5
2. Love Don’t Die by The Fray
3. Angel In Blue Jeans by Train
4. Summer by Calvin Harris
5. Come With Me Now by KONGOS
6. Sing by Ed Sheerin
7. Love Runs Out by OneRepublic
8. Fancy by Iggy Azaela (if you have figured out a way to ride to this one, please share!)
9. Happy by Pharell Williams *While not everyone’s favorite, this one got the most votes for the song they will remember most from the summer of 2014.
10. Turn Down For What by DJ Snake and Lil John
11. Rude by Magic
12. Lovers on the Sun by David Guetta
13. Wasted by Tiesto
14. Anything by Sam Smith (I for one am loving Stay with Me for a cool down and the Stay with Me Remix for a climb).

Here are a few that were mentioned that I’d never heard:

Arcadia by Hardwell
Prayer in C by Lilly Hardwell
Beware the Dog by The Griswolds

I created a collaborative Spotify playlist including these songs, so make sure to check it out, follow and add to if you wish!

What do you think the song of the summer is? Did we miss any?

    Love Fancy but stop playing it as it is on the radio every few minutes. I clime out of the saddle and take it in the saddle at the chorus.

    I was thinking a climb for Fancy as well…I haven’t used it in a class yet, but I bet the students would love it!

    For Fancy you can do jumps with seated and standing climbs.
