    So I'm production designing for a student sketch comedy TV show, and right now my job is to think of the perfect tune to play under the opening credits. "Something that's popular and rocks, sort of along the lines of Welcome To The Jungle, but not that," my director says."

    I have some ideas (VH? AC/DC? Offspring?)

    Your suggestions??

    So... you're mainly searching for that stage opener-type of song?!

    Namely a fast rocking tune that gets the crowd all gooey live and would also make a nice intro to a show.....

    Or am I wrong?!

    U2 - "Zoo Station" ("Where The Streets Have No Name" or "Pop Muzik" work, too!)
    Guns 'n Roses - "Rocket Queen" (hah! if he doesn't want "Welcome To The Jungle", he sure as hell doesn't want "Rocket Queen"!)
    Rolling Stones - "Start Me Up" (especially if the production is about Windows 95!)
    Simple Minds - "Once Upon A Time"
    Beatles - "Revolution"
    Cheap Trick - "Hello There", "Elo Kiddies"
    Van Halen - "On Fire", "Why Can't This Be Love"

    Atomic Punk, you're not being any help at all.

    Billy, I'll look into some of yours!

    It just HAS to be VERY VERY upbeat and tongue-in-cheek, because it's a comedy show. "Where The Streets Have No Name" wouldn't cut it. WCTBL wouldn't really, either. I was going to suggest INXS' "Disappear," but that wouldn't work either.

    Thanks guys!

    Frankly I always could see the Rolling Stones classic "Get Off Of My Cloud" used in an opening shot... The drums that first kick off in that song are great. I think it would make a great opener!!

    Looking at my description, you can probably wipe out most of my picks except "Zoo Station" and Cheap Trick. Hey, do you have a team of brothers in the production, maybe an ethnic cast? Could use "What's Your Favorite Color?" by Living Colour (interesting that they chose to use the British spelling for the band name but not the song title!)
    Jimmy Buffett - "You'll Never Work In Dis Bidness Again"
    B-52s - "Party Out Of Bounds"
    Van Halen - "Get The Show On The Road"
    J. Geils Band - "Freeze Frame"
    Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Warped"
    Talking Heads - "Wild Wild Life"
    ZZ Top - "Party On The Patio"
    KISS - "Psycho Circus"
    INXS - "What You Need"
    Peter Frampton - "Baby (Somethin's Happening)"
    Ted Nugent - "Free For All"

    The PERFECT song for this would be Sick As a Dog by Aerosmith. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    You checked out the Greyboy Allstars?
    or John Scofield Band - Uberjam(track 8).
    Great intrumentals with drive and intrigue.

    Also maybe The Who Immenent Front. I probably spelled that wrong.

    Massive Attack has some great stuff for credits, as well as Aphex Twin.

    Or you could use one of my tunes! http://www.mp3.com/grisgris

    In one of my early school projects........I used the first minute of "5150". Lot's of nice beats to cut to if you're doing a packaged intro for your show.

    I also used "Bottoms Up" for another video project I did in college. Of course the name of this "live, in-studio" show was "Bottoms Up" and we demonstrated how to make the various drinks a college kid may desire.

    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett
