    Try some tracks of "The Rising" by Bruce Springsteen.
    I don't know what your presentation is about, but "Into the Fire" and "The Rising" are great songs.
    "You're Missing" is about the loss of a dear one, but is pure genius, it brings tears to your eyes, if you know what he's singing about.
    I guess it all depends on the subject of your presentation.

    At the risk of sounding funny: Crawling from the Wreckage- Dave Edmunds

    At the risk of sounding Sappy: You've got a Friend- James Taylor

    Jockey Full of Bourbon- John Hammond (the Moxy Fruvous cover is better)

    Burning Down the House- Talking Heads


    For instrumentals only:

    Dave Edmunds does a great version of "Sabre Dance" on his Album "Plugged In" which also has an Insrumental called "The Claw"

    Jessica-The Allman Brothers

    Bagpipes can be a little slow and draining.....Plus, it reminds me of funerals. That's just my opinion, though. No need to start a war over it.

    The soundtrack to "Backdraft" has some good songs, instrumental and "light" pop types.

    I agree with "The Rising" -- the album itself has some good stuff on it.

    How about these for your listen pleasure:

    "Ring of Fire"-Johnny Cash good beat, catchy and everyone knows it.

    "Burning Down the House"-Talking Heads I like it just because.

    "Thunderstruck"-AC/DC Great beat, moves fast if you want to portray emotional build up or action.
    "It's a long way to the top"-AC/DC Another good one.

    Only use bagpipes alone if you want to convey some sadness or emotion associated with a firefighter death. If you do, have lots of Kleenex handy. Bagpipes, no matter what they are playing, make me cry like a little school girl. I know I'm not the only one either.

    Good luck.

    Keep your head down and your powder dry.

    Hornsby's "Show Goes On" is definitely a good choice, and it's from Backdraft, so most will know it. Good lyrics too....

    Cool Depends on the Pictures.........

    If you're doing a Funeral, Vince Gill's "Go rest high on that Mountain" is outstanding. Fast paced action? Fast paced music! look at Bluegrass/Country for some excellent instrumentals that can keep pace with anything you can put together. "Cannonball" by the Seldom Scene, on their CD "Act I" from Rebel Records (CD-1511) and Grass Country by Wynn Osborne on the CD "The Greatest Stars of Bluegrass Music" CMH Records, (CD-5903) I used Cannonball for a short clip that was in a Volunteer Recruitment presentation, with good results. Best wishes on your project. Stay Safe....

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
