Various Artists - The Hard Ride OST

This is the soundtrack for a biker movie I've never seen nor read about. Judging from the lyrics, it's probably about a disenchanted vet who buys a motorcycle and rides aimlessly until he finds a brothel.

As a fan of biker soundtracks, I was really excited to find this. It's pretty wimpy, though. But it has grown on me. Like a wimpy fungus. It's mostly 70's AOR, but sneakily catchy. And the instrumentals match the Arrows rev for rev.

The album's greatest achievement is the jauntiest song about prostitution that I've ever heard. It is called "Shannon's Hook Shop" and you can listen to it below. And then I think you'll be compelled to download it.

Satisfaction guaranteed!
