  • The hell of Northern Paris - Roubaix
    The Cote d'Azur and Saint Tropez
    The Alps and the Pyrenees
    Last stage Champs-Elysees
    Galibier and Tourmalet
    Dancing even on the top
    Bicycling at high gear
    Final sprint at the finish
    Flat tire on the paving-stones
    The bicycle is repaired quickly
    The peloton is regrouped

  • Chris from Germany Kraftwerk were ahead of their time and had a lot of good songs before they released Tour De France in 1983.
    They intended to release Techno Pop in 1983 and they had still made videos and promotions. There were also ads in music magazines.
    However many problems and such things caused the band to not release the album.
    The songs were recycled for their 1986 album Electric Cafe.
    Tour De France is awesome and really catchy. In 1983 they had a lot of competition with synth pop bands but they were still good and innovative. The Francoise Kevorkian remix of the song is one of the best.

    The song was released in 1983 and had minor success but it was a household name among the breakdance scene and so the song was rereleased in the 1980s.
