Tap your feet and sing along…

Nothing pulls me out of an over-worked funk like a fun bike music video… I don’t care what language it is:

  1. Catchy tune. What are they saying? Heal my feet?

    I can only dream of such a scene as I commute down Conway Rd. during rush hour.

  2. That’s a great video! The bike is called a bakfiets = box-bike = cargo-bike. The rest of the words are beyond me. Those people look like they are having just so much fun!

    This link is a little “scary” but it’s another non-US music video, extolling the freedom of cycling, specifically that of riding a velomobile:

    The translation is not perfect.

    Within my Velomobil I only do what I´m pleased
    nobody is bending my ears
    nobody asks me what´s this is all about
    Inside my VM nothing is too much for me
    I don`t have to think too much
    I can steer on my own
    It never gives me good advice
    It is always there for me
    Inside my VM you can have wonderful dreams
    Inside my VM I don´t have to understand anything
    Time ist standing still
    I am near to heaven
    and all my dreams come true
    Inside my VM I forget toiling and moiling
    the wind rushes around my head
    I feel sexy and free
    It is so familiar to me and
    and clings smoothely to my skin
    And when I am sick and tired of it all
    I jump into it and I dash away
    Inside my VM I feel weightless
    Time simply stands still
    I get nearer to heaven and my dreams come true
    When I am brassed off with the world
    my VM will probably take off with me
    When everything goes wrong and I can`t stand it any longer
    It folds out its wings and flies away with me

  3. Was she ever going to drive that thing, or just eat whipped cream off it?

  4. Since it was stolen at the end, she probably won’t be escaping in her velomobile!

    Pretty strange video. With less clothing, it could become a “mature audience” sort of music video. Definitely Euro-punk something.
