Since it's Fri, a fun hypothetical: What music to use to drive Saddam out of hiding?(22 posts)

Since it's Fri, a fun hypothetical: What music to use to drive Saddam out of hiding?js5280

If you remember back to Panama, we used loud music to get Manuel Noriega out of hiding. I'd say the arsenal of truely horrible music has outpaced any other technology. For this hypothetical question, Geneva conventions will not apply so Michael Bolton and Celine Dion are fair game. . .

To get things started, I nominate:
Higher by Creed

Played from big speakers on helicopters, of course.

Nope. Can't use German music. Sorry. nmDougSloan

It has Babs at her over-dramatic best. It is a middle age woman trying to play a teenage boy ;)

Actually the US was using Celine Dion in their radio Brodcasts in Iraq last week. I think it may have backfired though and killed the last chance at diplomacy ;-)

I LOVE the Swedes, but after spending two weeks in Stockholm, I have to admit their taste in music leaves much to be desired. I think Abba caused a collective auditory degeneration throughout the country. There's one artist, not Swedish but very popular there, and I can hardly make it through a song without wanting to run out of the room, preferably through a third story window. . .

All good titles;...... nah, I bet he's the one individual who actually likes Niel Sadaka.

How about some Patti Smith: Pissing in a river, Till Victory, 25th Floor/High on rebellion, etc.

Kansas: Dust in the Wind

Flight of the Bumblebee

Songs from Topgun

Pat Benetar: Hit me with your best shot, You better run, Hell is for children.

Tina Turner: I might have been queen, What's love got to do with it, can't stand the rain.

CCR: Have you ever seen the rain

Hendrix: All along the watchtower

Doors: Riders on the storm

Nebraska by The Boss over and over. He'll slit his wrists in abject depression and despair within a day or two.

Kansas, hoever, might only drive him to further irrational violence. Hell, if we're going for the whole 70s quasi-glam-hard rock thingie, then why not force him to attend each and every show that Styx and REO are performing this year. Of course,...that would be cruel and unusual....
