I have all sorts of thoughts on the Bureau of Land Management standoff in Nevada, but tonight was a (blessed) moment of relief from the cares of the last few weeks. #1 Son and I walked to the local pub for a quick libation. It turned out to be dead slow, and so we ended up having quite a good chat with the barman and the barmaid. Not sure how it came up, but we got to the subject of "What would be a good playlist for the Air Force guys to play as they fire the Hellfire missile at the Taliban?"
Like I said, it was slow. Everyone contributed, and it was a fun bar room conversation. As a break from Wookie-suited rants, I humbly offer it up for your approval. Feel free to add yours in the comments.
Live And Let Die. I always thought this would have been a good one to play over the intercom of the B-52s unleashing Holy Hell over Tora Bora. Likely they don't/can't do that, but this was the dream. Sure wish they had the opening credits to the film for this video, because it was awesome.
Give me back my bullets. Just because it scans better than "gimme back my depleted uranium projectiles.
32 - 20 Blues. Because you don't get more 'Murican than blues.
The barmaid had an interesting list:
You Rascal You, Hanni El Khatib cover of the Louis Armstrong song. That has extra irony points.
Weapon Of Choice by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. You need to hear more than that?
The barman had some great choices:
Bombs Over Baghdad. More for younger listeners than me, but duh.
That Was Just Your Life. A bit pensive in the opening, but gets to the whole "A-10 Minigun strafing run" feeling. And quite frankly, that was just your life, Jihadi ....
Symphony Of Destruction - Megadeth. Somehow, operatic metal seems to have a plethora of great choices here.
And it goes on and on. This could actually be a decent playlist for riding your motorcycle. Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments. JayG, I expect you have some great Metal additions ...
We now return you to the wookie-suited rants ...
