Not explicitly so, but I believe this band played biker bars.
This one does have the lyrics, different band though:
Probably one more for us Brits, but .... This thread must not be deprived of this 1975 "Rock" classic from Jasper Carrot - Funky moped
My favourite gag of his ... "Blues are losing". "How do you know". ... " It's Saturday afternoon"
Blowtorch .... You got all the best ones there .... Buddy ....
Can't get enough of this one. It makes me go faster through the twisties.
This is a tough thread to come in late.
How could we have forgotten that gem for 4 pages
I once did a support to Steve Gibbons.
Motorcycle Man by Saxon came to mind from the thread title, I suspect they've done a bunch.
And...I've thumbed my way through this entire thread just to check no one had posted Funky Moped but beaten to it. I believe part of the reason why it was a hit is that the B side was Magic Roundabout which had a bit of a cult following but was too rude for radio. Jasper in his prime was a funny man, possibly better known now as the father of actress Lucy Davis.
I may start going through the Dumpy's Rusty Nuts back catalogue later. They must have done a lot of songs about motorbikes as they were, or at least looked like they were, essentially a bunch of bikers who'd picked up instruments.
Love this one (especially the Hawkwind version), but it's not about bikes. A "motorhead" in this instance is an amphetamine user:
Sunrise, wrong side of another day,
Sky high and six thousand miles away,
Don't know how long I've been awake,
Wound up in an amazing state,
Can't get enough,
And you know it's righteous stuff,
Goes up like prices at Christmas,
Motorhead, you can call me Motorhead, alright
My favorite version...
In my opinion, there's nothing in this world,
That beats a 52 Vincent and a red headed girl
Not a motorcycle song per se, but everytime I hear this song, I think of this scene. Wait for it....
Speaking of Neil, that reminds me of this one, from his excellent Harvest Moon album.
Another great tune, but it's about Neil's 1948 Buick hearse nicknamed "Mort" that blew it's transmission in Blind River Ontario in 1962-
Well, it was
Back in Blind River in 1962
When I last saw you alive
But we missed that shift
On the long decline
Long may you run
Spirit- "I'm Truckin"
Big Head Todd and the Monsters- "Kensington Line"
