Hey everybody....since I'm in college away from my home department alot I want to put together a little music mix for them. I need something to do on weekends :-) What I'm planning on doing is getting some recordings of dispatches and calls, and mixing in a song. Now the question is....what song should i use?? I was thinking about "the Change" by Garth Brooks. Any other ideas??

How about Hero by Mairah Carey or Wind beneath my wings I'm not sure who sings that one. Or maybe The Show goes on a song from the Soundtrack of Backdraft

I for one think that "The Change" Is a great song for what you want to do. I'd also like to throw out another Garth song, how about " standing outside the fire" ?

Standing Outside the Fire has a chorus that would work great, but since its not really talking about fire in a literal sense I don't know if I want to use it. I'm still considering it though. Keep the ideas coming!!

I'd personally use John William's version of Chariots of Fire with The Boston Pops.

How about Smoke on the water by Deep Purple or Burning down the house by Talking Heads or We are the champions by Queen?

The soundtrack from Mr. Holland's Opus has two versions of the symphony played at the end of the movie. Either version would be extremely fitting with that kind of video. I've choreographed a sequence through that piece that runs through alarm reciept, response, arrival, rescue, suppression, take-up, return, and ends with a collage of different various scenes. Pretty cool, but I don't have the resources to actually make the video.

Two that I like are:
The Oklahoma City Fire Department used a video set to "Angels Among Us" by Alabama? in a presentation that they made to us about their response to the bombing of the Federal Building. Very moving. I can't hear that song now without thinking of firefighters and the job that we do, and especially that event.
Another song that I've heard used a couple of times with good effect is "Danger Zone" from the opening scenes of the movie "Top Gun."

I have done several slide shows, both apparatus and jobs set to music...Have used the following: Original theme to "Star Wars", "The Imperial March" (on the soundtrack to "The Empire Strikes Back") Top Gun, Days of Thunder, Saving Private Ryan, Gettysburg, and other soundtracks....Other music used has been: "Angel of Harlem" (U2), Louder than hell, Save our souls, Home Sweet Home (All by Motley Crue, all on "Theatre of Pain") Have used "The Fireman" by George Strait, Holding out for a Hero (Artist unkown) There is lots of stuff out there, you just have to use your imagination!!! And some songs are only good LOUD!!!! (ps- one time I showed a set of slides of Apparatus from the USSR and other eastern european countries, and played the soundtrack to "The Hunt for Red October"

another thought from me, I'm sorry I don't have the exact title of song, I believe it's "I'll be there for you" I know Jessica Andrews sings it, she's a fairly new Country singer, the sing was on "prince of Egypt" sound track, I thought that was great song for a video, don't know why it didn't come to me earlier...

We will eat smoke and pull out bodies as long as they continue to build them. Just once I would like them to ask one of us how to build it!!

How about Dave Nachmanoff's "Fire Woman's Daughter"?

The Show Goes On, by Bruce Hornsby and The Range. You can get it off the Backdraft soundtrack.
Oh and if you want a tear jerking type of movie sound don't forget Amazing Grace. Bagpipes and Drums of Scottland is pretty good.
FIrefighters are the chosen people.
My views do not reflect that of my department or the United States Air Force

Try 'Nothing Else Matters' by Metallica. A friend of mine used it in a video and it was awesome
