The following are not exactly "serious" trail videos... 
(MP3 files for the "Bruce Blues Band" tracks are downloadable here.)
Afternoon Ride
Classic 1950s type rock 'n roll on Zoltar and Houdini. A loop ride on Borderline, Zoltar, and Houdini in the Klonzo system while the Bruce Blues Band does a classic soundtrack. (Original composition)
Biker Blues
About a guy who loves his bike a bit too much! This video, featuring the "Bruce Blues Band" in concert, has scenes from winter in Lambert Park, spring in Moab, summer in Payson Canyon, fall on Antelope Island, and more. From April Fools Day 2018. (Original composition)
Ballad of Biker Fred
This started with a song encouraging Cub Scouts to wear their helmets!  The "Bruce Blues Band" sings the sad tale of Biker Fred, while the video shows every type of mechanical disaster befalling the bike. Based on an old Kingston Trio song.
Big Guy on a Bike
For those of us who have bodies and bikes in the XL range...  In this original song, the Bruce Blues Band deals with the challenges of being a larger biker, while Bruce rides Antelope Island. (Original composition)
Bike Thief Thing
Hey, this song takes an ugly turn.  In love with his bike on Wire Mesa, this rider finds his bike stolen and gets, well, hostile. Sound track, of course, provided by the insane musicians of "the Bruce Blues Band." Based on that old favorite, Wild Thing.
Born to be Mild
In case any road bikers are feeling left out, here's a song about you.  While riding the Barrel trail in St. George's Green Valley area.  Steppenwolf on an acoustic guitar? The Bruce Blues Band rocks out, mildly.
Can I Buy That Bike
Pleading with your wife to buy your third or fourth bike?  This original reggae song from the Bruce Blues Band is a lot of fun. Fat bike riding in the snow of Lambert Park. (Original composition)
Can't Get Enough
Do you love your bike a bit too much?  While riding the Rim Rock trail in the Santa Clara preserve, the "Bruce Blues Band" does a bit of Bad Company rip-off.
Crowded Corner Canyon
An ode to a very popular riding area!  The "Bruce Blues Band" offers its opinion on the riding in Draper, with a ride around the Lexie & Ethan Loop. Tune from a Neil Young ballad on the Crosby Stills Nash & Young album Deja Vu.
Episode on the Bike
EKG trail!  Bruce does his usual bass and grabs a guest spot as lead singer with the group Dinosaur Kisses for this video of the EKG trail. (Based on a song by Gary Argyle of Dinosaur Kisses.)
Everything is Wonderful
Angry biker gets his mind fixed when riding.  This original song has angry punk verses and a "feel good" chorus. Gotta hear it to appreciate it, all while having fun on the Rhythm & Blues loop near Quail Creek.
First Bike is the Cheapest
The bikes just keep getting more expensive.  There have been a lot of "covers" of "The First Cut is the Deepest" over the years. Here's the Bruce Blues Band's version, as background to a ride on Twist & Shout.
Flat Tire
Why the race became a DNF.  Creedence Clearwater Revival's classic "Lodi" becomes a cautionary tale about hubris in this Bruce Blues Band soundtrack. The video shows the many trails in Eagle Mountain.
Gotta Ride Boogie
A tribute to Utah's alpine rides in a full-tilt boogie!  Video of the Deer Creek South Fork loop while the "Bruce Blues Band" does its thing. (Original composition)
Half the Man She Is
A couch potato whose wife is really into biking!  Climb Draper's Canyon Hollow trail and descend down the Rush trail as the "Bruce Blues Band" plays the sad tale of a guy's manhood crisis. (Original composition)
Heartbreak Race
High expectations, and a hard fall back to reality.  The Bruce Blues Band tries its hand at contemporary country with this ballad of a racer who can't win. Literally. Set to the beautiful open western spaces of the Prospector trail near St. George. Recycled tune from a Dixie Chicks song.
Hey Joe
A cautionary tale about dirt jumping.  Set to the classic Hendrix tune, the sound track by the "Bruce Blues Band" sets the mood for this ride around the EZ-Lazy loop in late November. (Recycled)
I Broke My Bike
Can I borrow yours?  Country and western lament from a rider whose ambition to ride big stuff exceeds his skills, to a video of Navajo Rocks near Moab. Sound track by the "Bruce Blues Band." (Original composition)
Mountain Bike All Night
I wanna mountain bike all night, and not just in the day...  With apologies to any KISS fans out there, here's the Bruce Blues Band version, set to a ride in Alpine's Lambert Park. (Recycled)
Patchwork Bike Blues
Trying to keep the bike rolling with scrounged parts.  Classic blues soundtrack by the Bruce Blues Band while riding the awesome Church Rocks loop. (Original composition)
Ride Like a Big Boy
Taking the training wheels off.  An old CCR favorite updated to talk about biking. The Bruce Blues Band's soundtrack plays while we ride Dunestone and Boondocks in the northern Klonzo system. (Recycled)
Ridin' through Heaven's Door
Broken bike or broken biker: a sad song about the end of biking.  Modeled after Guns n Roses' cover of Bob Dylan's classic, this song by the "Bruce Blues Band" is the background to a descent down the WOW trail above Midway.
Rocks Hurt
Appropriately enough, on the rocky Cub Scout loop.  Remember Nazareth and "Love Hurts?" The "Bruce Blues Band" does its version on the Quail Creek Overlook trails. (Recycled)
Something
Singing about how it feels to get away into the hills.  The Bruce Blues Band takes a classic James Taylor finger-picking love song and makes it all about biking. 
Sweet Little Bike
A ballad about a guy and his bike.  Another classic James Taylor song -- about a lonely cowboy -- is remade into an ode to my mountain bike..
Valhalla Trail
Utah's toughest trail -- and it's real. Not lying. We swear!  A compilation of ridiculous stuff -- such as riding through water and having a picnic in the snow, plus plenty of bike breakdowns. Assembled into a "ride video" about the brutal but fictional Valhalla trail. From April Fools Day 2017.
Why Stop the Pain
Long as I've been riding, my bike's been breaking down...   The Bruce Blues Band plays some classic CCR (Creedence Clearwater Revival) -- inserting mountain biking lyrics of course -- while Bruce rides the Red Canyon Rim at Flaming Gorge.
Won't Hike Down
Inspirational Bike Song!  Really.   To set the mood for a descent down Bull Run in the Gemini Bridges area north of Moab, the Bruce Blues Band performs its version of a Tom Petty classic.
