Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
In whatever comes our way

Yeah, darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once and
Explode into space

I like smoke and lightnin'
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under

Yeah, darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once and
Explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
In whatever comes our way

Yeah, darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once and
Explode into space

Like a true nature's child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild

BAAAD for the EARS!!!   Why?   Seems songs like this that force a 9 rating, ALSO force me to turn up the volume to match....{#Music}

Those "10" ratings have just about made me deaf by now...  {#Dancingbanana}   And this is at least a "9"..

What? Are you saying that Radio Paradise was not Born To Be Wild? Where else are you going to hear wild music from around the world? Thanks to B&R for bringing RP to life.........
Every time I go on my motorcycle I have this song running in my head 

A perfect track for the (nearly....) end of the work week....I just might have to crank it to an 11 in my truck on my drive home.  (and 11 is about 1/2 as loud as my system gets....still need to be able to hear when I get home ;-)

Long Live RP!!

Same here!  And even then, I tend to CRANK it up on whatever system I'm listening to - this and Magic Carpet Ride.  ROCK ON CoJo!!
 
Don't forget The Pusher and Rock Me
Impossible to hear this song and not picture motorcycles on the road - Harleys specifially - and yet there isn't a word about motorcycles in it.
lost for words - no the song says it all

How would you describe your life? Bored to be mild?

THE quintessential motorcycle song - but very well worn... :motor:
sucko-barfo ...I couldn't have said it any better.. Neither 'intelligent 'OR 'eclectic' guys... If I wanted this crap I could just stay tuned to my local Clear Channel Classic Rock station!
Not necessary. Play sparingly.

classic three cord special !!
Maybe the best rock & roll song ever recorded. It has all the elements and energy. My band still plays it and gets a great reaction evey time. They are still touring and Kay's quality of sound is better than anybody that I've heard lately.
Just get into the bass line, and work from there. One of the great anthems of rock.
Who cares how much it's been played. Instant HIGH everytime I hear it!
that was a fun set....Thanks :clap:
not that this is bad by any means, but definitely way overplayed everywhere - I would love to hear some of their non-hit-single tracks though... "Dont Step on the Grass, Sam" "Disappointment Number (Unknown)" --- actually just about anything else off of Steppenwolf The Second would be fantastic!
I'm pretty well burned out on this song, but I didn't have the heart to give it any less than an 8. "Booooooorn to be wiiiiiiiiiiild...."

WORD!
Ok. another guilty pleasure. i didn\'t comment on my unintellectual sneaky nostalgic glee at hearing Billy Idol (the good thing is i only hear him a very little bit on RP) - but this was old even when i was younger, and i still liked it... :lol:

This is what you get when you complain about Legend of the USS Titanic :rolleyes:
Ummm, no.
a guilty pleasure. tnx for playing the original instead of the poorly done annoying fatboy slim cover.
