    Default Quick song suggestion - not necessarily fire related

    I am just about done with a photo montage for our company dinner. At the end of the show is a bunch of slides of a member that had his 50 years last year receiving various awards from different organizations, and just general pictures of him. For three days now I have stared at these pictures, and I cant think of anything to put them to... Any ideas?

    Not any particular kind of music... nothing to heavy, nothing that makes it sound like the guy died... Thats my only real requirements.

    One of our guys set a montage to a song by Chicago...I think it was "Old Days"???? It fit the montage well in this case.

    Try: Copeland - Fanfare for the common man.

    Very regal, and distinguished horns and drums.

    I agree... Aaron Copeland's "Fanfare for the Common Man" would be an excellent choice.

    If you wanted a more "rock" oriented version, you can find it on Emerson, Lake and Palmer's Works, Volume 1 CD.

    "Angels among us"by Alabama might be better for a group of honorees but I think it could work for one guy.Maybe"I need a hero"by Bonnie Raitt?

    Saw the same thing set up for a member with 50+ years service. They used the photos in a slide show with Alan Jackson's "Remember When". Sounded great and really helped put the program together.
