Okay gang, which song do you think is the BEST to use if you were going to make a fire video for YouTube?

I've seen a number of tribute videos using 'Danger Zone' by Kenny Loggins or 'Hero' by Nickelback. There has GOT to be more options than those two!

Burn in My Light - Mercy Drive (that would be a good one)

And IMO, another good one would be "This is Gallifrey" from Doctor Who. It is an instrumental that I've pictured a firefighter tribute video arranged to in the past. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZaVlwEvcUQ - first three minutes).
Fire. As performed by Ohio Players. Released 1975
nice when rock was rock
fire it up - Thousand foot krutch
ive put these together for years and the best advice i can give is select music that goes with the subject and message you want to send.

Ie: "he aint heavy, he's my brother (hollies) was used so much for a fallen firefighters presentation that i was in that after an hour, even the judges were getting bored. i won it with a song called "closer to heaven" (allen parsons project). the song had lyrics and i had the pictures and won the sucker

Danger Zone (kenny loggins) was OVERUSED so much that people were tired of it

Mariah Cary's "hero is a nice song

if i see one more presenation using "heatwave" i'm gonna scream

avoid using worded music because that traps you into using pictures that go with the lyrics. movie soundtracks are a good start (and there are too many good ones to list)

doing FD videos requires you to capture the soul of your subject and put it timely to music. i started doing slide tape producions years ago and now with computers, your feelings and be truly exprersed

REMEMBER: select music that fits whatever "theme" you want to show
avoid songs with lyrics
have fun with whatever you want to do. if it comes from the heart, everyone will like it
maybe a bit over used, but hey man nice shot by filter is good
''Burn it to the ground" Nickleback
Into the fire Bruce Springstein

Brothers in arms Dire Straits

They were botth used in Firemans fund TV tribute to FDNY fallen 9/11
