What's your ideal soundtrack?

Yesterday morning I was feeling especially mischievous so I snagged my mp3 player and strapped it onto my arm for the ride in to work.. Resolving never to use it in traffic, I waited until I boarded the bike path to insert the earpieces and power it up.. The Cranston path is deserted in the morning, no worries. So I'm toggling through the playlist and I pick my favorite.. a song touted to be the new "Bohemian Rhapsody" for today's generation of dis-illusioned and over-teched youth.. Before I confirm your suspicion of what song this is, let me just say that my power file from yesterday's commute clearly shows that the watts were spiked by about 10-20 from the time the song began until the time it ended.. and not deliberately.. and I'm wondering how it might be possible to perform my Bob Beal TT with this music in the background.. without getting DQ'ed or getting my hand slapped.. There are ways.. So I ask my dear readers: If you could have any music you wanted in your ears during a 3 mile VOMax time trial, what song(s) would it be? I think this would be my pick:

dat not my ideal sound track...

the O Fortuna from Carl Orf's Carmena Burana (sp on all that) or Beethoven's Ode To Joy Chorus...

or a whole host of other stuff...

too many songs that tweak the brain waves to catalog all of them...

It get's very rhythmic towards the end though. Trick is to find something 6-7 minutes long.

Velcro Fly by ZZ Top. It's not as long as I would like, but it has a great beat to ride to.

I'm thinking about buying a new, quieter trainer for the winter. Then maybe I'll be able to hear the music. I don't like headphones, so I go with handlebar mounted speakers and a subwoofer in front of the bike, right over the fan. Bootsy Collins and Blondie are my favorites for the trainer. My neighbors love me...
