Do Or Die 079

Ready or not…May ’23 will be here soon!
I’m giving DO OR DIE and encore ride tomorrow, just about 10 years since I took this one for a “SPIN” in 2013. If you cannot check out the full ~45 minutes of my 79th spinlist…do give these a listen (again): DO OR DIE (Thirty Seconds To Mars), DIANE YOUNG (Vampire Weekend), TAKE IT OUTSIDE (Brantley Gilbert), and DRUM TRIP (Rusted Root).

I have big plans for the next 31 days of 2023…watch for an update on that this June. Make it a great May Day Monday & ENJOY THE RIDE all month long! And watch for another fresh ride/mix (#552) soon!

The ride is named for the Moody Blues track and perfect for this ALTERED STATES theme…plenty of chemically-induced tunes (there’s more that didn’t make the cut this time). Includes many of the “classic” artists: Styx, The Doors, The Beatles, Steve Miller Band, The Rolling Stones, Rush, Jefferson Airplane, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Who, The Cars…and others. A more current, but fitting bonus track is Lover, Leaver by Greta Van Fleet (homegrown in THE MITTEN – aka Michigan!)…thanks Clint!

More hills on this one, so the target for the five zones on this ride is heavier in Yellow:
