  • Firefighting - the Soundtrack

    Going out on a limb here, maybe, but if you were to assemble a highlight reel of your company's or department's best (or worst) moments, what music would you include?

    Here's a few I have in mind, but am interested in other opinions...

    ** The Show Goes On - Bruce Hornsby
    ** Burning Down The House - Talking Heads (of course!)
    ** American Symphony (second half) - London Metropolitan Orchestra (from Mr. Holland's Opus Soundtrack)

          I did that a while back...I used

          Forty Hour Week (Alabama)
          Against The Grain (Garth Brooks)
          The Show Goes On...7 minutes 32 seconds, kinda long to play for a slide show if you want a lot of variety

              Our neighboring department has a tribute video on their website using Warriors of the Flames by Jim Likens.

              I used "C'mon C'mon" by the Von Bondies (Rescue Me theme song) for a recruitment video on our site:

              I also like "Some Like it Hot" by The Power Station and "Brothers in Arms" by Dire Straits.

                Those are some sweet videos. Good job.

                  Music videos... something I love to build. What a great way to introduce your fire department to the world! I believe the videos listed above show a tremoundous amount of pride in their departments. And yes, they were both great videos.
                  If you've got the time, check in on a few i've built over the last few years. Any and all comments are welcome!

                    1. The theme song from Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom with Marlin Perkins.

                    2. 99 Luft Balloons or was it Lime-Green Balloons? Those wacky Germans!

                    3. The Stroke (for medical calls, of course)

                      First I just wanted to say awsome videos. I have to agree with Wildman51 that is a great way to get you fire department out there. I saw a video from a fire department around here that had Standing outside the fire by Garth Brooks. It was a pretty good video as well.

                        It has nothing to do with fire, however it's one of those adrenaline pumping songs that you somehow find yourself singing in the back of the truck on the way to a fire.
