A message and plea to all (but especially those who will be on the bus up to the Armpit of America): I've gotten really fired up by our recent run of good form into the playoffs and I finally decided to sack up and go through with an idea I've had for awhile to make a CD of songs to fire me up for DC United games. I wanted to put one together this week so we could play it on the bus as we headed into the Meadowlands. So I'm looking for input. I've already got some ideas, which I'll place below. But be kind, I realize that many people on here have strong ideas about music as well as soccer. I'm not looking to please everybody, but rather strike a happy medium as I pull this together. Also, I don't have a file sharing program, so everything is going to have to come from my rather medium sized CD collection. IMPORTANT: If anyone has a copy of that old song that they used to play in the stadium circa 96-98 "We gonna be Un-i-ted..." I'd like to get a copy. At the time I thought it was as stupid as that piece of crap that Phillips had done up for the national team. Now it's just part of my positive memories about the glory days, and it's grown on me. Other ideas: Intro to The Final Countdown - Alan Parsons Project (Somewhat NBA, but a good starter) Black in Black -AC/DC (don't think I need to explain on this one) Raise What's Left of the Flag - Flogging Molly (Great band and gets me so fired up and reminds me of the SE/BB) Cup of Life - Ricky Martin (WC '98, yeah sure it's Ricky Martin, but it's soccer and cup focused) Lost Yourself - Eminem (It's the title track from the DC video this year) We're Not Gonna Take It - Twisted Sister (I'm fed up with losing, the Rothenburg trophy was, and always shall be, OURS! Agreed?) Maybe An Upbeat Salsa Track - Probably Rosario (Gets me in the mood for some one touch football) Irish Folk Track, Probably Up Against The Buachalawns - The Chieftains (Just drums and pipes!) Jump - Van Halen (Makes those stands bounce) Ride or Die - DMX (You think this is a game?, You think this is a motherf---ing game???) Tough Calls: Fly Like An Eagle - Steve Miller Band (Another 96-98 stadium track, but too mellow?) I Love LA - Randy Newman (Sure, the cup is in LA this year, but la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la, LA SUCKS ASS!)? Yellow Submarine - The Beatles (We all laugh at the yellow football team!) We are the Champions - Queen (A sports anthem, but too presumptious?) That's just a start. Please throw your ideas out there. I'll try and get it together by Saturday. Fits nicely in that new DC United CD case from Sunday night!!!
