I've been trying to find a movie for "date night" and heard this awesome track from Snow Patrol I wanted to share with you. It's from the movie Epic. Not right for movie night, but looks cool for a Red Box rental in the future.
Recently released Snow Patrol — The Lightning Strike (What If This Storm Ends?) builds in a way that communicates an Epic climb @ 79 rpm and screams; "TURN IT UP!" as the music does all the cuing for you.
Big gear. Big pedals. It could have easily been the soundtrack for Peter Kennaugh's huge effort in the Tour today, chasing down the break over the top of Port de PailhÃ¨res and then dragging team leader (and stage winner) Chris Froome down the back side. At times he simply rode away from everyone, even his own team. I had the privilege of interviewing his father Peter Kennaugh Sr. back on Podcast #234 and I'm sure this was a proud day for him - although Jr's winning a gold medal at last year's Olympics was probably a special day for any father who's also an accomplished cycling coach.
You can get this track in Deezer.

I’ve used this track! It is IMO one of Snow Patrol’s best song. Very powerful for a climb.
