#AtoZChallenge: R



This post is part of a month-long blogging challenge. The challenge is to start the month with the letter A and make our way to letter Z at the end of the month.



A quick review of what we’re doing here:

I’ll post 3 to 5 songs with a word that represents the letter of the day. In the comments, you’ll share songs that also use the selected word in either the title or lyrics.  Pretty easy, and loads of fun!




Today’s word is “Ride”



From Dictionary.com:




  1. Ride Like The Wind - Christopher Cross
  2. Ticket To Ride - Beatles
  3. Hitchin’ A Ride - Vanity Fare
  4. Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf
  5. Joyride - Roxette


And those are my Rides for the day.  Let’s see what Ride songs you come up with. Your songs can be from any musical genre.  Share in the comments.

  2. Damn - you already nabbed the two top contenders I had for this word - Ticket to Ride and Joyride :D. Hmmmm ... let's think. Ride on Time by Black Box - now that is taking me back!

  3. You picked a couple of thought of..the Beatles song and the one from Steppinwolf. I will choose The Ride of the Valkyries from Wagner and used in man6 films most notedly in Apocalypse Now. I also thought of Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy by Big & Rich. Does Ghost Riders in the Sky work?

    SLOW RIDE by Hogfat

  5. They got most of the ones I thought of but how about Leroy Anderson's "Sleigh Ride"? A Christmastime standard done most notably by The Boston Pops.

  8. "Nantucket Sleigh Ride" by Mountain--one of my favorites from this group. I'm sure there are more, but you've gotten a lot covered above.

  9. Ride by Twenty One pilots..

    Yeah.. I am a millennial child.. there are a lot of old songs that I do listen to, like The Queen, Phil Collins, Bryan Adams, ABBA but not as much as the new ones...

  10. I think of Sleigh Ride , the best done by the Boston Pops with Arthur Fiedler as the conductor. Ride my Seesaw by the great Moody Blues. I love Ghost Riders in the Sky
