10 more songs not to listen to while riding a bike

I now have a bike again so I'm making a list to refresh my memory of stuff that would be bad to listen to while riding :]

Bloodthirster - This one made me groove so hard on my scooter (not a bike, sorry) a few weeks ago that I fell off, busted my knee up and ruined my favourite trousers. Would still headbob along on the cyclepath accompanying the A28 again though.
Everything Is Fire

Caecus - I have a compulsive inability to refrain from airdrumming the start of Caecus, which wouldn't be a good look on my way to work, I'm sure you'll agree.
3Pig Destroyer

Need to remember to skip the first track as it always makes me jump and I'd definitely die.
OK Computer

Let Down - a nostalgia-inducing throwback to the days when I had ambitions and hopes and dreams and was excited about loads of stuff. I don't need a third-life crisis while cycling to my job as a part-time sales assistant in a clothing store. Nuh-uh.
5Nina Simone
Pastel Blues

Strange Fruit - I don't need to be a soggy mess before I get to work either. Also bonus one - my voice is still awful and her version of 'Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out' is so magnificently singable. No one needs to hear me do that.
Platonic Planet

All of it - if I ever get hit by car on my bike and the ambulance come, I want them to think I'm cool and listen to stuff like Abhorrent or Sentenced or Convulse, not some hyper Japanese teenager singing over sugary beats. The paramedics would definitely laugh at me.

H-armless (can't remember if the site kills forward slashes or not) - pretty sure my neck partly dislocates itself when this plays. Not good on a bike.
8Gustav Holst
The Planets, Op. 32

Neptune - with the mixture of wind, rubber on tarmac and general traffic noise, I can't hear anything when this one plays. It's so quiet. Might as well subject myself to silence.
Life in a Peaceful New World

Again, don't want the paramedics to think I'm weird. They might start trying to heal my wounds with WD-40.
Pierced from Within

Torn Into Enthrallment - Could maaaaaaaaybe get through the first three minutes but after that I'd be chancing my hands moving or my head moving when I really should be concentrating.

I hope you're all keeping well this year. It's been a shitter of one for sure but more optimistic times surely lie ahead. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
