Personally, I love riding my motorcycle on long stretches while listening to music blaring out of my earphones. Loud, and fast music, preferably with electric guitar just makes the ride so much smoother.

With that in mind, here are 18 songs with motorcycles in them. Mind you, they may not be motorcycle songs, but they do have a motorcycle theme. There are many more out there, but this is just a quick overview what's there.

All links to the songs (not all of them have links) are on Amazon US, where you can listen to the song, and even buy for MP3 download to play on your MP3 device or iPod/iPhone.

NOTE: My apologies to those of you still using Microsoft Internet Explorer, the alignment to the left does not work properly. All other browsers seem to be fine.

The Motorcycle Song by Arlo Guthrie from the movie Alice's Restaurant

CHORUS:
I don't want a pickle
Just want to ride on my motorsickle
And I don't want a tickle
'Cause I'd rather ride on my motorsickle
And I don't want to die
I just want to ride on my motorcy...cle

It was late last night the other day
I thought I'd go up and see Ray
So l went up and I saw Ray
There was only one thing Ray could say, was:

CHORUS

Just last week I was on my bike
I run into a friend named Mike
Run into my friend named Mike
Mike no longer has a bike. He cries:

Motorcycle Song by Billy Joel

Yeay......Well I’m driving down this road, on this big old motorcycle
I’ve been riding here so many years that I’ve forgotten why
Just some miles & boys & I crusin' down that Sunrise Highway
Though when I get west to Lake Success I turn & say goodbye

To Jericho Road, I’ve already been every place I’m going
To Jericho Road, don't have any need to proving nothing to no one
Go where you want, still might be riding for all that I know
Put in my time, it’s on the line on Jericho Road

Well it’s a long and a straight line, see myself for falling
Only mightiness, I don’t believe I’ve ever had the chance
Now that I know if she’s waiting there if she waits 4 me in silence
It’s--[gibberish]--had a chance, it’s all that I can do

Jericho Road, never had a--[gibberish]--run away
Jericho Road, one--[gibberish]--on a lake.........Far as I know...[gibberish]...
[gibberish]...The Promised Land on the Jericho Road

Yeah, la la la la la la la, oh oh oh...La la la la la la la ah...
La la la la la la la, oh oh oh...La la la la la la la...

In a way we took our flag, when I filled myself with ferment
In a mono way...a holiday, oh so clever mine
It’s a shame I had a chance, but I never really live in darkness
[gibberish]--a lot I can do, I know I really care

Jericho Road, [gibberish]--Jericho Road, [gibberish]--summer silence
Should’ve been lost...[gibberish]--nobody knows...[gibberish]--on a Jericho Road

La la la la la la la ah...La la la la la la la, oh oh...La la la la la la...

Motorcycle Man by Saxon

If you see me riding by
Do not stop me do not try
Cause I'm a motorcycle man
I get my kicks just when I can

Motorcycle man (*)
Motorcycle man

Like an angel slick machine
Were taking risks that's what we mean
Cause we're all motorcycle men
We get our kicks just when we can

Motorcycle Ride by Rancid

If you wanna make a move then you better come in
It's just the ability to reason that wears so thin
Living and dying and the stories that are true
The secret to a good life is knowing when your through...

You were wrong all along, it's gone it's over
too late to run for cover
backed into a corner, you're fit to die
can't help me cause I'm lonely inside

Sarah ceased existing long before she died
A fifth of Bourbon and a motorcycle ride

Sarah went down and tripped and fell
lost her footing on the way to hell
she said that's okay today alright
said today I played and survived

...If you wanna make a move then you better come in
It's just the ability to reason that wears so thin
If you wanna make a move then you better come in
It's just the ability to reason that wears so thin

Sarah ceased existing long before she died
A fifth of Bourbon and a motorcycle ride

Motorcycle Mama by Neil Young

Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay your big spike down
Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay your big spike down
I always get in trouble
when you bring it round
Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay it down.
I'm runnin',
I'm runnin', I'm runnin'
Down the proud highway
Yeah, I'm runnin',
I'm runnin', I'm runnin'
Down the proud highway
And as long as I keep movin'
I won't need a place to stay.
Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay your big spike down
Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay your big spike down
I always get in trouble
when you bring that round
Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay it down.
Well I'm here to deliver
I hope you can read my mail
I just escaped last night
From the memory county jail
I see your box is open
And you flag is up
My message is ready
If there's time enough.
Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay your big spike down
Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay your big spike down
I always get in trouble
when you bring it round
Motorcycle Mama
Won't you lay it down.

Motorcycle by Iggy Pop

I saw her in a dream but it wasn't true
Through the smoke and fire
Of the exhaust fumes
She just laughed and loved me 'till I was no use
And I'll never fall in love again
She's a motorcycle that I can't ride
She's a precious jewel that I can't buy
She's a scene I'm playin' in which I die
And I'll never fall in love again
"I never play to win"
Is what she said
And poured a little cocaine in my head
She's a fuckin' Picasso in bed
And I'll never fall in love again

Now your voice
So Spanish and clear
Rings like a church bell in my ear
But I don't believe in a word I hear
And I'll never fall in love again
My mind calls you in the night
My mind calls you and I want to take flight
To some other garden of sweet delight
And I'll never fall in love again

Motorcycle by Love and Rockets

Me and the motorcycle
Me and the motorbike
We just running around
My feet are off the ground
She's not gonna let me down
She's not gonna let me down

Me and this motorcycle
Me and this motorbike
You don't go too fast
You just set me free
It don't go too fast
Just let me out
Let me out

AHHHH - Motorcycle
AHHHH - We are free

I feel warm inside
On the motorbike
The wind is all around
On the motorbike
We are free
The motorcycle and me
The motorcycle and me
The motorcycle and me

Motorcycle Rider by The Icicle Works

I've seen the moonlit lake,
The brown leaves blown across the way,
I've seen the icy black November,
I've seen the meadow & the stoplight up in front of me,
I've seen some things I can't remember...

I'm a motorcycle rider thats what I am,
I'm a motorcycle rider

I've seen the beauty of the open plain, the wide terrain,
I've seen some pretty girls thru' visors
I've seen my way across six thousand miles of toll-free road,
N' every journey put me wiser...
All along the valley wall,
The white lines and the freeway,
There my lover calls to me above the engine roar...

Speeding Motorcycle by Yo La Tengo

Get On Dis Motorcycle by Petey Pablo

AH!

[Females voices humming]

[Petey Pablo - talking]
Y'all ready ..
Y'all ready ..
Y'all ready ..

[Verse 1 - Petey Pablo]
One of the illest rhymers that ever came outta Carolina, put this whole shit on the map
Went back got two states, y'all crammed way to the back
and brought 'em up to the where the rest of 'em at (cause I can do that)
Granddaddy was real strong, daddy was in the Army
I was a bad motherfucker, slightly retarded
Mentally institutionalized, since the '85
Buildin tree houses (that the wind couldn't blow down)
Look at me now, holdin it down
Doin it well, I ain't triple platinum yet (but ain't gon' worry 'bout it)
I'm wearin the good damn crown, man I'm the president
And reppin both states (back here in Carolina)
Where the hell did you find 'em? (boy is an animal)
His flow is incredible, style is bananas
I just wanna go to the Grammy's and I don't care if I win
Just to say I've been god dammit (god dammit)

[Chorus - Petey Pablo - 2X]
Get on dis motorcycle
Get on dis motorcycle
And that way you can ride wit a ... (y'all ready)

Get on dis motorcycle
Get on dis motorcycle
And get your hips on in the big ass truck (y'all ready)

[motorcycle engine]

[Verse 2 - Petey Pablo]
On the hurl and dirt road, them big ass pot holes
Lay in a - old home, lay in a - screen doors
Car in the back yard, dog chain tied up
Ain't drove it in years, sittin on nothin
Spit crunk mosquito buckets, hot wood heaters
Hooked up Honda Accord, with house speakers
Bag, phone and beeper, corduroys and sneakers
Pit Spike Lee's and them shell toe Adidas
You don't know shit 'bout Petey (Petey)
Real definition of the greasy, grimy and gritty
You really fittin to sellin drugs for another nigga
Always lookin at me like your trigger finger itchin
I give ya my best witness, when you come to handle your business
You better be ready to get it, cause I don't be bullshittin
I'm up into plastic bottles cause if I keep on feelin the way I'm feelin
I'ma blow up in this motherfucker

[Chorus - 2X - w/ ad libs]

[Verse 3 - Bubba Sparxxx]
Twenty-seven dollars to my name, headed up
85 pissy drunk, Petey still made me drive
Left off from LaGrange, passin through Squattenburg
On the way to High Point and my speech startin to slur
Better tell these sons of bitches, boy to move won't allow for me
To stop and say I'm sorry to this dude and this scout
It was just a little bump, shit you dented my Ferrari
Don't call the law, shit is rented, look I'm sorry
All we have done in the name of the south
Gave these ugly motherfuckers somethin to "Raise Up" about
But I'm still unfulfilled, since my daddy still drivin
That fuckin school bus, know that Bubba still strivin
I want me a label, want me a mansion
Timmy can't give it to me, Jimmy ain't spit it to me
Rest assure though, the day is approachin
When these old country boys ain't just playin, they coachin

[Petey Pablo - talking]
Get on dis motorcycle ..
Y'all ready, get on dis motorcycle
[motorcycle engine], y'all ready
Get on dis motorcycle ..
Y'all ready
Get on dis motorcycle [motorcycle engine]
HEYYY!

[Chorus - 2X]

Haley's Got A Harley by 38 Special

Well she don't need nothin from that man no more
No she took it all with her when she walked out the door
I say 1-800-PARTY, that's the number to call
Now Haley's got a Harley and she's leaving it all

Now she's headed out to Sturgis got it all wrapped up in leather
Got her Softail shined up, don't worry about the weather
Yeah she used to be the quiet type, the shyest of all
But now Haley's got a Harley, feelin' ten feet tall

Look at her now, look at her go
Out from the shadows, into the show
Ridin it hard, ridin it low
Flyin her colors, she's ready to roll

Just like the tattoo of an eagle on her shoulder
Yeah, her spirit's wild and free and the party's never over
Well, she's ridin' on the wind just a' wavin at em all

Biker by Pretenders

Biker they tell me
You're a dangerous lover
Well that might ne true
Oh, but I'd never ride with another

Maybe they've never had their arms around
anything so wild and free

You bring the biker out in me

I can't understand it
Why people give you grief
You play the one armed bandit
Like and outlaw with a belief

To them it's the norm
for a man to conform
to a godless society

You bring the biker out in me

You bring the biker out in me

Because they've no interest
In the struggle to obtain
The status and bogus desires
That drive most people insane
You who have nothing have
Something that only the 1%
Could ever see

You bring the biker out in me

You bring the biker out in me

Gypsy Biker by Bruce Springstreen

The speculators made their money on the blood you shed
Your momma's pulled the sheets up off your bed
Profiteers on Jhames Street sold your shoes and clothes
Ain't nobody talkin' because everybody knows
We pulled your cycle up back the garage and polished up the chrome*
Our gypsy biker coming home

Sister Mary sits with your colors, but Johnny's drunk and gone
This old town's been rousted, which side you on?
They would march up over the hill, this old fools parade
Shouting victory for the righteous for you must hear the grace
Ain't nobody talkin', but just waiting on the phone
Gypsy biker coming home

Whoa!

[Guitar solo]

We rode into the foothills, Bobby brought the gasoline
We stood around the circle as she lit up the ravine
The spring hot desert wind rushed down on us all the way back home

[Harmonica bridge]

To the dead, well it don't matter much 'bout who's wrong or right
You asked me that question, I didn't get it right
You slipped into your darkness, now all that remains
Is my love for you brother, life's still unchanged
To him that threw you away, you ain't nothing but gone
My gypsy biker's coming home

And now I'm out countin' white lines
Countin' white lines and getting stoned
My gypsy biker's coming home

Whoa!

[Guitar solo]

La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

Motorcycle Emptiness by Manic Street Preachers

Culture sucks down words
Itemise loathing and feed yourself smiles
Organise your safe tribal war
Hurt maim kill and enslave the ghetto

Each day living out a lie
Life sold cheaply forever, ever, ever

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness

Life lies a slow suicide
Orthodox dreams and symbolic myths
From feudal serf to spender
This wonderful world of purchase power

Just like lungs sucking on air
Survivals natural as sorrow, sorrow, sorrow

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness

All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us
All we want from you are the kicks you've given us

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness

Drive away and it's the same
Everywhere death row, everyone's a victim
Your joys are counterfeit
This happiness corrupt political shit

Living life like a comatose
Ego loaded and swallow, swallow, swallow

Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness motorcycle emptiness
Under neon loneliness everlasting nothingness

Jeans On by Keith Urban

When I wake up in the mornin' light
I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on

It's the weekend, and I know that you're free
So pull on your jeans and come on out with me
Oh 'cause I need to have you near me,
I need to feel you close to me
I need to have you near me, I need to feel you close to me

You and me, we'll go motorbike ridin' in the sun
And the wind and the rain
I got money in my pocket, I got a tiger in my tank
And I'm king of the road again

I'll meet ya in the usual place
You don't need a thing except your pretty face, alright
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
Aw, here we go mama

You and me, we'll go motorbike ridin' in the sun
And the wind and the rain
I got money in my pocket, I got a tiger in my tank
And I'm king of the road again

When I wake up in the mornin' light
I pull on my jeans and I feel all right
Hey I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on

I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on
I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my old blue jeans on

Hot Girls by INXS

Looking out my window at some girl as I'm writing this
And I watch her eat a peach, the way she's biting it, biting it
And I probably shouldn't stare, but I am fighting it, fighting it
And I think that she's aware and kind of liking it, liking it

Hot girls, they can break me, break me
Hot girls, you know what you're doing
Now, hot girls, come and break me, break me
Hot girls, take me where you are going

On her motorbike, the way she's riding it, riding it
And she says it feels so good but she is hiding it, hiding it
Wet lips to cigarette and now she's striking it, lighting it
As she looks me in the eye, hell, she must know she's inviting it

Hot girls, they can break me, break me
Hot girls, you know what you're doing
Now, hot girls, come and break me, break me
Hot girls, take me where you are going

I've got nothing to prove, ain't got nothing to lose
If you need someone to use, I can take the abuse

holding up some paper to her window, she's writing her name
and number and I'm laughing as I'm dialing it, dialing it

I've got nothing to prove, ain't got nothing to lose
If you need someone to use, I can take the abuse

Hot girls, they can break me, break me
Hot girls, you know what you're doing
Now, hot girls, come and break me, break me
Hot girls, take me where you are going

Hot girls, they can break me, break me
Hot girls, you know what you're doing
Now, hot girls, come and break me, break me
Hot girls, take me where you are going

Harleys & Indians (Riders In The Sky) by Roxette

When I go to heaven
Harley Harley heaven
I want to meet a King
Like the Panhead 48
I want to meet the Fat One
We can talk for hours
When my time has come, Babe
I won't be running late.

Flying high
Riders in the sky
Na na na na.

When I go to heaven
Red-skin heaven
I want to meet the Chiefs
Yea, I want to meet all Scouts
I won't miss my friends cos I know where they'll be
We're all part of the Indian Family.

Flying high
Riders in the sky
Na na na na.

It's alright, Baby
I'm OK, honey
I'm only travellin' thru this state of mine
Hey it's alright, Mama
I'm doin' fine now, Mama
I'm only in a certain state of mind.

When I go to heaven
Hog Hog heaven
I'll have a drink with Elvis while Marlon's on his way
We're kickin' and we're revvin'
We're dressing up in style
It's time to take a ride on that freeway in the sky.

Flying high
Riders in the sky
Na na na na
Come on, come on.

Unknown Legend by Neil Young

She used to work in a diner
Never saw a woman look finer
I used to order just to watch
her float across the floor
She grew up in a small town
Never put her roots down
Daddy always kept movin',
so she did too.

Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
flyin' in the wind
She's been runnin' half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
Collidin' with
the very air she breathes
The air she breathes.

You know it ain't easy
You got to hold on
She was an unknown legend
in her time
Now she's dressin' two kids
Lookin' for a magic kiss
She gets the far-away look
in her eyes.

Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
flyin' in the wind
She's been runnin' half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
Collidin' with the very
air she breathes
The air she breathes.

Leader Of The Pack by Bette Midler

"Hey, Betty? Is that Jimmy's ring you're wearing?"
"Uh huh."
"Oh! Must be nice riding on that motorcycle after school, huh?"
"Uh huh."
"Is he picking you up after school today?"
"Unh uh!"
"Well, where'd ya meet him?"

I met him at the candy store.
He turned around and smiled at me.
Ya get the picture? (Yes, we see)
That's when I fell for the leader of the pack.

My folks were always puttin' him down.
Down! Down!
They said he came from the wrong side of town.
They told me that he was bad,
but I knew that he was sad.
And thats why I fell for the leader of the pack.

One day my dad said, "Find someone new."
New! New!
I had to tell my Jimmy that,
whoa, we were through.
He stood up and then he asked me why.
But all I could do was cry.
I'm sorry I hurt you,
the leader of the pack.

He sort of smiled and he kissed me goodbye.
The tears were beginning to show.
And as he drove away from me
on that rainy, rainy night,
I begged him to go slow.
But whether he heard me
I'll never, never, never, never know!
Look out now, now, look out!
Whoa oh no no no! Whoa no no no! No! No!

I felt so helpless! What could I do-wo-wo-wo-wo?
The only, only love that we had was through.
At school they all stop and stare.
I can't hide the tears.
I just don't care!
I will never forget you,
the leader of the pack!
Whoa-oo-woh! Gone gone gone!
Gone gone gone!
The leader of the pack is,
now he's gone!
The leader of the pack is,
now he's gone!
The leader of the pack is, whoa gone!
Gone gone gone!
Gone gone gone!
Gone gone gone!
