Music! WallPapers! Videos!
Music is a huge part of my life, and I hope to share my love for it with everyone. Most people have a hard time figuring out what makes me tick, and the short answer is music. It's a huge and essential part of my life, and one of the main things I want to be able to share more of with people. I have songs that identify a specific period of time for me, and in turn, I have songs that I think fit perfectly with the races and places I've been to. Want to know what I was listening to at a certain race? Find out below! If you right-click the links, you can download the music directly to your desktop, and listen to it in your iPod later!
GP08 Donnington-- I'm Back.
GP08 Donnington 2-- Just plucking away at one of my favorite songs.

GP08 Catalunya-- Riding? I'm back in the saddle again!
GP08 Mugello-- I have no idea what this girl is saying, but it's beautiful.
GP08 Mugello 2-- Lyrical powerhouse. 'Nuff said.
GP08 Mugello 3-- Straight up classic, I must've listened to this for six months straight when I first got it!
GP08 Le Mans--
On the way out, one song shone the way.
GP08 Shanghai-- Once this song starts rollin' - watch out! It's the secret sauce that'll get your juices flowin'!
GP08 Shanghai 2-- This one's just hilarious. Can you believe I heard this the day before I left for China?
GP08 Estoril-- Uplifting, fun stuff. Just what I need to keep this ship a'rollin'!
GP08 Jerez-- Nothing like bouncy, bouncy little beats and boops.
GP08 Qatar 3-- Love the twangs of this guitar, and the New Zealander providing vocals has really captured me with her Stevie Nicks-ish flow. Love the words, which is rare for me, because I so rarely can hear them.
GP08 Qatar 2-- Dark, moody, the fog rolls in to hide the track in the mist.
GP08 Qatar 1-- In the shadows, where the hands are moving . . . .
GP08 Preseason 4-- Do the Dance, Do the Dance :)
GP08 Preseason 3-- Spacey, beachy, and warm. Diddle that guitar!
GP08 Preseason 2-- Bringin' it back Ole School! Walk around Smiling and Happy!
GP08 Preseason 1-- Now this is what I'm talkin' about! Hold On, Hold Tight, and Hang On!!
Xmas07.2-- Christmas wrapped up for me officially with this song, which was perfect, mellow, and full of love. Thanks to Joe H. for sending it my way.
Xmas07.1-- Music for all night engine builds! Must*Be*Cranked*Up!
Xmas07 -- A beautiful, breathy, dutch song that flows and grooves like my Christmas in California did.
GP07 Valencia 2-- The Remix! I'm going to Valencia to put the wrap on 2007, as next season begins for me officially on November 5th. Bring on 2008!
GP07 Valencia 1-- I love MotoGP, I love the racing. This simple, high-energy song makes me smile - just like the races. I'm going into Valencia to finish this season that I started so long ago.
GP07 Sepang-- Caught this on Lele's iPod playing through the van sound system on the way to the circuit one morning, and it just seemed to fit.
GP07 Phillip Island-- Not sure why I like this one so much, but it's catchy.
GP07 Motegi 2-- THABUMP!
GP07 Motegi 1--Flying out of Portugal before dawn, this is the only feeling I had going into Japan.
GP07 Estoril 1-- The genres this song bridges are not to be missed!
GP07 Estoril 2-- The Funkier, Fresher version of the previous song, haha. One of my favorites!
GP07 Misano-- Such a perfect vibe song - the boys from K and from D really are masters.
GP07 Brno-- I really get a kick out of the baseline in this one, and the pseudo strings - reminds me of a modern day Chic . . . . . So simple and clean.
GP07 Assen-- OK, ok, so this girl isn't singing in Dutch, but to me it sure sounds close enough! See if you can figure out what language this is!
GP07 Donington Park 2-- Bonus Pumped Up Track for DP!
GP07 Donington Park-- Not much time to catch up with new music, but the races never stop, and It's Not Over Yet!
GP07 Catalunya-- Heard this in the car on the way to the circuit on Wednesday. Stuck with me throughout the weekend!
GP07 Mugello-- Electric Champagne bubbles from Mugello. Salute!
GP07 Le Mans 2-- A perfect song for France, and one that really captured my heart. All time goodness, and the lyrics are fantastique!
GP07 Le Mans 1-- A sweet, bouncy little tune that reminds me a little of classic americana - Nina Simone-ish?
GP07 Shanghai-- Nothing like spacey tunes to match this city's futuristic architecture.
The Turkey Race Song,-- Schmoovey
The Jerez Race Song,--Beautiful Chords, powerful strings, this is the build-up to the first European race of the season!
Qatar GP07 --Not the most technically interesting song, but full of drive and energy. Similar to how I feel about Doha - lots of untapped energy and enthusiasm to change, but 'just not right'.
Qatar Preseason Test --Liam gets down with this beautiful, chill vibe. My, my, indeed.
Phillip Island Preseason Test 07.1--80's Flashback! In the land Down Under, I wanted to get my "Van-Halenish" beat on, complete with synthesizers (Korg, anyone?)
Sepang Preseason Test 07.1--Just back from the USA, and I'm already enroute to Sepang, Malaysia, to start the Preseason tests. This bouncy little tune is just the thing to get back in the swing of things - Euro Style!
This just in - December 23, 2006 - MotoLiam and Colin Edwards II
Bologna 07.1--Beautiful, dreamy, and it encapsulates many of the thoughts and feelings I had when I first visited Ducati Corse in rustic Bologna, Italy. Sooo much beauty. Soo much struggle.
Valencia 06.1--I've loved this song for years, and it captures so much of the "Nintendo" generation while managing to stay classy. Is this the future of R&B/Jazz?
Valencia 06.2--Fantastic remix of a second generation Brazilian talent, by my favorite German specialist!
Valencia 06.3--One of the most underrated talents to come out of Canada, with an interesting blend of Eastern and Western instrumentation.
Estoril 06.1--I've got some longs drives ahead of me before Estoril really starts, so something mellow is in order. I'm initially going to Madrid to meet up with my team, and then we're all headed to Lisbon together, in a caravan of semi-trucks and Mercedes vans. Hmmm, how about something peaceful, but something that moves.
Estoril 06.2--However, once I get there, it's time for some racing! Yee-Haa! With the season coming down to the wire, I have HUGE expectations for Estoril. This is a bumpin' song with a little old-school guitar to drive it home!
Motegi 06.1--You might recognize this song from a Coppola flick. I'd like to find this kind of peace one day, and maybe in the midst of the Tokyo crowds, I'll finally be alone.
Motegi 06.2--Very nice "koto" sounding instrument - can you guess where this group is from?
Phillip Island 06.1--Quite possibly one of the greatest songs of all time, it's the beautiful combination of poetry and magic that make this song, by an Australian film-maker, one of my all time favorites.
Phillip Island 06.2--Men at Work? INXS? I keep getting the feeling that there's going to be a showdown on the Island, and a nice Ennio Morricone Remix should do nicely for the Italians that i think will be squaring off shortly.
Sepang 06.1--It's time to start getting pumped about the upcoming three fly-away races! While this duo is normally know for their chill vibe, this version is anything but!
Sepang 06.2--This one goes way back in my history, and although it's not Malay, just thinking about being on the road for this many races outside of Europe has got me thinking - is my love in league with the freeway?
Brno 06.1--There is a beautiful tranquility in this one, and this is how I felt watching this peaceful city of Brno.
Brno 06.2--This one is quite simple, really. It goes out to The Boss!
USGP 06.1--Who needs a vacation after the USGP? Me!
USGP 06.2-- Not the best recording, but I finally managed to get some relaxing done yesterday and today(7.29.06), and I just really like the "surf-esque" feel of this tune. You can totally tell it's a Fender. Beautiful. Just like the clouds this afternoon.
Sachsenring 06.1--German Rap? Heck no! Just sweet, sweet pop.
Sachsenring 06.2--Superfunctastic Elevator Music.
Donington 06.1--Trippy, Roundabout beats.
Donington 06.2--Look, all I want is a club sandwich. Without the sandwich. And some beats.
Assen 06.1--Famous for it's Nights, Assen thumps with the best in the World! Have a little Bass with that.
Assen 06.2--Holland's people are also intelligent, educated, refined, and silky-smooth.
Catalunya 06.1--Spacey stuff, perfect for such a transcendent racetrack.
Catalunya 06.2--For walking, taking trains, and gettin' yo groove on! A nice eighties flashback - but newer.
Mugello 06.1--Home recording of a couple Rapping Italianos. Forza le Hip-Pop, they're rappin' to the beat!
Mugello 06.2--Hard starting? Wait for the goodness. . . . . it gets better, way better.
Le Mans 06.1--All the way from Paris, France - I can see your __________!
Le Mans 06.2--Men at Work? The Cure? But with a French twist, and a fille. Grand!
Qatar 06.1--We fought a war, and the war won.
Qatar 06.2--An elegant, mysterious, and misunderstood society. So much dynamism, it changed my love of the people.
IRTA test 06.1--The season is just around the corner, flowers are blooming, and fresh fruits are everywhere!
IRTA test 06.2--Incredible duality in this song, like a wicked chicane up and down a hill, and I love the second section. . . . .
Valencia 05.1--Valencia knows how to party. Seriously.
Valencia G5.2--At this point, I was still feeling very homesick for the US, and the streets of BCN were always empty.
USGP 05.1--A whirlwind of action, and a year's worth of good times thrown into a single week - the '05 USGP holds amazing memories for me, just like this song.
USGP 05.2--What a great place to think about going around the world. . . . . .
ShangHai 05.1--Nothing like feeling Global, when you're halfway around the world and no one speaks English. I hope to see all of these cities at some point.
ShangHai 05.2--I ran into a trio of Germans on the street in ShangHai, and we went looking for a girl, a girl who dj'ed this song!
Here's a little taste of what's going to be coming in the future:
