Songs that lend a voice to the equestrian world in a way only music can.
In Thursday’s 100% Sound Column, we discovered that our horses may not share our love of rock ‘n’ roll, but I promised that we counter culture equestrians could still enjoy some cutting edge music in our stables. We simply need to keep it mellow for the sake of our four-legged friends.
To that end, I present The Top Ten Songs To Play Around Your Pony. These songs, though featuring the vocals of Green Day lead singer Billie Joe and Rock N Roll album creator, Ryan Adams, should keep your horses serene. Even Ray LaMongtagne’s “Like Rock & Roll and Radio” won’t make your horses want to shake their heads or stomp their feet, I promise!
Meanwhile with band names like Quiet Corral, The Hunts, and Fleet Foxes, it’s not surprising that these fresh acts produce music that appeals to both human and horse alike. And, The Lone Bellow’s “Fire Red Horse” is much more composed than you might expect. Finally, rounding out the list, is the amazing , some might even say classical at times, violin skills of Andrew Bird and the storytelling power of Rayland Baxter and First Aid Kit.
Get ready to make your stable a no stress zone!
