I think in this case you need a song ["The Camera Eye"] that starts off slowly as your body is waking and warming up, and then kicks you into gear! But I do have "Eye of the Tiger" and a few more Rocky-related songs and themes as part of my cardio playlist. smile

EDIT: I finally looked..."Forever Young" by Alphaville was in Napoleon Dynamite (prom scene).

She was indeed Panzer. She started her career as a member of Hot Gossip,which I didn't realise until about 60 seconds ago!

BTW, that video was recorded live on August 31, 1985, my 18th birthday!

While rummaging through my flight sim archives today, I came upon a reference to my original Cold War music thread that died in a SimHQ server crash a few years back. Many of the songs I posted myself in this thread were originally posted by others, which is how they became known to me and I appreciate it.

On that original thread, I apparently posted this pic from February of 1985...

[Linked Image]

I'm #2 on the second row (needing a haircut), wife is #5 on the first row, and my mom was a chaperone (really a spy in cahoots with my future mother-in-law), #6 from right on the second row.

Had the Russkies pushed the button that day, obviously we would have been vaporized in the middle of DC. And WWIII was a real possibility that could have begun from a misunderstanding or test gone bad, as depicted in the excellent true-life documentary released later that year called "Spies Like Us". But I don't think we would have survived at home either, in Baton Rouge, LA...

It's all been forgotten, but you have to wonder what Ivan's been up to lately with those Typhoon missile tubes...

So after several play-throughs, I've come to the following conclusions (with updated playlist):

1. Boney M is cool but doesn't stand the test of time, nor do a few game MIDIs that I was using for inspiration.

2. It'd be a crime not to include some Top Gun, especially knowing now that Maverick's opponents could have actually been Russian (we'll never know).

3. TK's music in SF:P1 is timeless, even more so than Flanker 2 and Jane's F/A-18 (although I love the latter's gloomier vibes).

It's hard for me to grasp that "Spies LIke Us" is now a 35 year old song. I still remember the movie and the music video very well.

The best Cold War video with a Cold War vibe I've ever seen is some EF2000 footage mashed with the soundtrack to 'The Hunt for Red October'.
I'm pretty sure it was here on SimHQ, but don't remember exactly who did it.

That was me, and thanks. smile

I remember that being my first MP3 purchase off Amazon, just for making that video (also listed in my above playlist). I still have the video, along with everything else I've ever posted on SimHQ (and well organized), but I no longer have web hosting and I've never bothered creating a YouTube account. Uploading, especially with services like Dropbox, were always a pain with satellite internet, although my HughesNet has been upgraded since the last time I tired. I'm going to look into getting my own web server again as FTP uploads were always very easy and all I had to do was provide a simple direct link.

Did I miss it or did nobody mention David Bowie's Heroes?

The Hooters - Satellite (well at least it is space themed but it throws me back to summer holidays in Germany and this was playing on AFN :-))

I remember a lot of bands from the 80's but I admit I have never heard of "The Hooters".

Back to this thread because I have to snap out of 2020 (mind spinning uncontrollably from virus, weather, politics, passing of Neil and Eddie) and mentally transport myself back to the mid-80's (MicroProse set the scenario dates). I exercise willpower over most aspects of my life today but lack advanced-study focus, and having access to an interactive world outside of my home is by far the biggest culprit (I loath watching television except for occasional news).

Shortly after sending this post I'm turning over my laptop (currently my only portal to the internet) and I'm not returning until I'm finished with what I've started (remember my study schedule? I'm ~75% complete, but stalled). And that's not a motivational/accountablity promise just to SimHQ but far more personal to my better-educated half. So for you smarty-pants who understand higher math (somewhere between HS trigonometry and differential equations), advanced programming, and/or who can read and speak Russian, I challenge you to challenge me on these subjects upon my return. smile

I have no doubt that my upcoming 'retro flight sim in development' thread is going to be the most satisfying and enjoyable thread I'll ever start and participate on in this forum. Holy crap this is going to be so much fun! biggrin
