/ Music to abseil to
One of my staff is doing a charity abseil down the outside of a building. She needs a song to do this to which the organisers will play as she decends.
You lot must have some amusing suggestions.
going, going, gone
The only way is up?
anything by The Fall
Goin down - Springsteen.
Down, down ,down,down
Like a bat out of hell...
Excellent so far. Keep em coming.
U2, I Fall Down
Anything by Slipknot?
I am the Resurrection - the Stone Roses "Down, down, you bring me down"
Puppet on a String - Sandie Shaw
Boris the Spider - The Who
Or again, anything by Falling In Reverse.
The MASH theme: Suicide is painless
End of the Line -Travelling Wilberries
The Ting Tings, Shut Up And Let Me Go
I see Free Falling's been taken - how about The End?
On A Rope by Rocket From the Crypt
love in an elevator. aerosmith
Slip Sliding Away by Paul Simon
I've just remembered one of my favorite T-shirts to climb in, that had the typical holes caused by getting caught in the rope whilst rappelling had the caption, from Bob Marley - I'm rapping, I hope you like rapping too.
Sikth - Part Of The Friction
My user name makes me uniquely qualified to reply.
Heroes. David Bowie.
Just play rap music.
> On A Rope by Rocket From the Crypt
Or possibly Hanging Around by the Stranglers:
The Beatles, Help.
something by the scissor sisters?
The Superman Theme or the Theme from Jaws.
ps If you are ever snorkelling try using your snorkel as a kazoo and do the Jaws theme underwater. Great effect you will either sh*t yourself or laugh so hard you will inhale water and (nearly) drown..Like I did..
Hit the Deck - Ice-T
I did that snorkelling thing just a few weeks ago but the nephew I was
trying to spook has never seen Jaws. Shocking parenting!!
Ah beat me to it!
Thanks everyone - she did it to Sail by Awolnation.
She could've had 3 songs the length of time it took her to get down but I know she will read this so well done Laurel.
