Official Kettering Kickoff Music Thread

OK, I know how these usually go, so I'm gonna try something different this time. First of all, there's a poll so I can get a feel of what everyone likes to hear. Chances are it won't have any bearing on what we're playing there, but it's just nice to know.
Second of all, the process of actually reading all of the one-liner "I wanna hear"s, downloading them illegally off of eDonkey or Kazaa, listening to them and deciding whether or not I want to play them is long, illegal, and really not that helpful to my library (I probably have most of the good ones). I don't wanna do that.

Instead, I want to know 2 things:
1) (if your team is coming) what your team's theme song(s) are. At the moment, I foresee playing said songs at the beginning of ONE of your team's matches (With 4 teams on the field, have to let all of the teams take their turn, doncha know). If you have more than one team theme song, once all teams have gone through their first team songs, well, you get the drill. Many may enter from one team, however we're limited by time, so lets say a 5 song maximum per team. (If I get 150 team songs from 30 teams, I'm gonna be mildly miffed.)
B) Any finals-type song that you want to hear during eliminations. I probably have 90% of them, but whatever. Also songs you think would be REALLY good for awards.
B+)Songs you want to dance on the field to (Chicken Dance, Slide, etc.)
C) For anyone who doesn't fall into the above three categories, you may request songs if this thread doesn't receive much attention. The catch is, if you request it, you must be present at the Kickoff, otherwise I kick your bot.

RULES FOR POSTING SONG REQUESTS:
A) Anything you heard last year at Kettering Kickoff is obviously a given. No need to request it again.
2) No Carlin swear words or other material that would make moms gasp in shock.
5) Questions, comments, complaints, and discussion about the KK DJing are encouraged in this thread as well.
3, sir) Many will enter, few will win. See package for details. Must be present to win. Purchase is necessary. Void in Alaska, Hawaii, and certain parts of Wisconsin. Odds of winning are 1:217. Rules may change at any time according to the digression of the DJ.

Europe - The Final Countdown
ACDC - Hell's Bells

Don't even know if I'll be there (probably not) but I always like to hear those in the finals.


I remember the last 2 years on the way back from IRI, Jim (team 33 head engineer) talked about how great it was to hear balls to the wall because that's the only time he hears it. Maybe you could play it kind of as a joke. Hey, you could even count that as the team 33 theme song!

Also, I remember requesting Hey Ya last year here, and then at the comp I was picking up the robot off of the ramp and I heard it, I was kinda surprised... Thanks!

Re: Official Kettering Kickoff Music Thread

i do support dance/techno music for the kickoff... but i think new/alternative Rock and Linedancers will keep people entertained...

Re: Official Kettering Kickoff Music Thread

I voted for Dance/Techno and linedancers. Gotta have Cotton Eye Joe and a litle Darude in there .

Now for a request for the team song - can you please - please - have beethoven's 5th symphony? If you are unsure of the song just visit http://www.robocards.org and give it a minute to load - but that song should start to play.

Thanks-

Matt

Re: Official Kettering Kickoff Music Thread

I agree with Matt. Linedancing gives off a lot of energy and pumps people up. Techno and Dance kind of matches the game, if you know what I mean. It goes with the intensity of the game.
Though you gotta have the rock in there. No one can argue with that! =D
