When I'm walking a loop from home, I like to listen to music on my Ipod. Sometimes it's fun to try different ones than my normal tunes. Here's a brand new artist that is amazing IMO.Joshua Steele The TideThe TideI downloaded all four for $3.96 and will add them to my iPod normal routine.http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-music&field-keywords=joshua+steele&x=0&y=0

I have a couple "go-to" albums I enjoy.Portugal. The Man's album "Censored Colors", Ween's album "White Pepper", and a James Brown collection I listen to on almost every hike.
I like things a little up beat like Incubus, Radiohead, A Perfect Circle,Gorillaz, The Crystal Method,Foo Fighters, and Old School Punk........TOOL!!!!!!!!! Def-tones, Matisyahu,Sublime, Pearl Jam ETC ETC,ETC,White Stripes...SADE
Walking and listening to music turns the experience into a movie. The soundtrack dramatically changes your walk. The James Brown tunes like I Feel Good and very different from Radiohead's Karma Police.I've been walking along at a fast pace and then go into a jog sometimes depending on the tune.I'm always surprised about how so many really different types of music work well on a walk.
I agree with you 100% George....in fact, if I'm lucky, a tune will stick in my head and remind of a trip or event forever...
But then you won't hear the bear or mountain lion right behind you!!! :)
All the better!!
Though I normally and exclusively listen to rock of some sort, I always find myself listening to coldplay when im hiking. Have you ever heard "speed of sound" while hiking!? Yes? now listen to it while hiking high, ... IMO it's life changing/epic/a sense of perfectionWhen, im finally settled into camp, I really enjoy listening to Eddie Vedder's work on the "Into the Wild" soundtrack
