Your description is a bit of a "bummer" LOL, so this may not help, but the most famous war theme is Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture.

in the hall of the mountain god?

thats a classic war tune


i use to play a lil war game called Return Fire, and man when that would start you knew the poo was about to hit the fan


MA, probably has the right name of it, I just know that it was called in the hall of the mountain god on some classical CD I had a long time ago.


or maybe they're are too different songs? as my classical knowledge stops with a video game hahaa.

Midi sample of Aida

Sounds like the beginning of Elvis Presley: Aloha From Hawaii album.

It starts with Richard Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra and morphs into See See Rider. It brings a tear to my eye everytime I hear it.



Peace

Are you possibly thinking of Beethoven's 9th symphony? It sort of sounds like it through the ba bums. I could be wrong.

Naa. the 9th is "Ba Ba Ba BUMMMM>>Ba Ba Ba bummmm..

This has a church like choir building up in it...Just listen to this in your head.

da da dun dun....da da dun dun...da da da DA DA da dunn...
(then an octave higher)

da da dun dun...da da dunn...da da da DAA DAA DA dunn...

really powerfull, like waves crashing..like the angels from heaven came down for the war....cmon...we know this...

well was it close? imo its the most classic song they use in movies when conflict arises ya know?

btw anyone ever play Return Fire? That was a great game!

If nobody has figured it out already, I'll throw my guess out there.

The William Tell Overture by Rossini? You know, the Lone Ranger song.

Strangley enough, while I'm listening to it, trying to match the da da da's and ba ba ba's, your avatar appears to be rockin out to the classical music.

Can you record yourself humming it? Or perhaps remember a specific game or commercial you heard it in?

Maybe Haydn's Mass in Time of War?

mussorgskiy?? the hut of baba yaga is a very popular piece of music, very dramatic...otherwise your humming puts me in mind of the beginning of ravels'bolero', you know it, bumm bububub bumm, bububub bub bummm...

ok, this sounds bad..but someone knows this. On the "Up in Smoke" tour dvd, its the music that Ice cube is lowered onto the stage to. I doubt that anyone who knows that song, owns the dvd, but please, by all means surprise me, cuz this killin me....

be back in a second....gonna think some more....












nope...nothing

Ive heard it a thousand times, and so have all of you......but it escapes me..

This is a very common piece. Nothing obscure. Once you hear it, all the "Ba Bum Ba Bums" will becom soooooo clear. I sooo very much appreciate all of helpin me out with this.

Hey, i gotta an idea...im gonna bearshare for a clip from the dvd, since mine is on vhs(lol)...if i find it, ill try to get it up on here, so you brainiacs can help me sleep....back in a few (maybe) so feel free to keep tossin suggestions out. But look at those first few posts and THINK...this is so obvious....HELP!!

thnks again...
