An old fart’s dream soundtrack for a flyfishing video

I’ll first apologize to Mr. Buffett (and all the islanders). I love ya’, and acoustic guitar and steel drums certainly fit the bonefishing motif. But I was hell bent on selections that would really get the blood pumping, since that’s precisely the reason I flyfish in the first place.

Not necessarily in order of appearance…

1 ) Ramble On – Led Zeppelin
2 ) It’s A Long Way To The Top If You Wanna Rock N’ Roll – AC/DC
3 ) Sweet Emotion – Aerosmith
4 ) Enter Sandman – Metallica
5 ) Kickstart My Heart – Motley Crue
6 ) Rock Rock Till You Drop – Def Leppard
7 ) Paradise City – Guns N’ Roses
8 ) Been Caught Stealing – Jane’s Addiction
9 ) Living After Midnight – Judas Priest
10 ) Gator Country – Molly Hatchet
11 ) No More Tears – Ozzy Osbourne
12 ) Even Flow – Pearl Jam
13 ) Unchained – Van Halen
14 ) Behind Blue Eyes – The Who
15 ) You Can Still Rock In America – Night Ranger

I’d had venues in mind when I cooked this list up, but I’d rather leave them to the imagination. Thoughts?

MG signing off (to burn a tweed jacket, a creel, and some panda food)


Good list…perhaps some Pantera (Cowboys from Hell, maybe?) or some Rob Zombie (Dragula)? Not old school….but a little bite or twang is always a plus.

Down has some great tracks…

What, no Heart of Gold? Gotta throw some Neil Young on there man!

Neal Young sucks and so do the Eagles.
My 2 Cents: First of all a good flyfishing video only has 8 or 9 tracks. Here are my votes.

1) Bigger Than Guns, Bigger Than Cigarettes, Atmosphere
2) Closer, Nine Inch Nails(preferably with a scence of me behind a pinyata shaped like a horse)
3) I Like Big Butts, SirMixalot
4) Anthing by Michael Jackson
5) Puff The Magic Dragon, Peter, Paul and Mary
6) If You Liked It Than You Shoulda Put A Ring On It, Beyonce
7) Im Too Sexy, Right said Fred
8) I Can Love You Better, The Dixie Chicks
9) Sippin On Some Sizzurp, Three 6 Mafia

By the time said tweed-wearing old timer got to the Dixie Chicks, he would have already had a massive coronary and passed away from complications of said heart issue. Leaving the Three 6 Mafia’s talents unappreciated(almost puked in my mouth actually saying that in the intrests of comedy). Lost is the art of blending great music to great video.
