From Rob PFollowing on from the Weird Al thread it got me thinking about music that we might choose, ourselves, to play on a theme park attraction in place of the existing soundtracks.

I thought I'd get the ball rolling by selecting an easy one :
Kool & the Gang's " Jungle Boogie " on the Jungle Cruise.
What are your ideas ?

I'd love to see a Thriller scene in the Haunted Mansion as a zombified Captain EO makes a cameo in the graveyard scene. What, too soon?

From James TrexenI'd put "Leaving Hogwarts" at the end of Forbidden Journey. I'd also like to hear the music on the Jurassic Park Ride in Hollywood at Orlando's version.

It's the first 11 seconds or so, it makes me so excited
From James TrexenAndy, I'm pretty sure you know this already, but Hedwig's Theme already does play during the boarding of Forbidden Journey. This post is about what you WANT to hear at the rides.

In that case, I would want the Terminator theme to play anywhere in the Terminator show...unless it already does too :P
From Rob PMark : Is that the Jerry Reed that was in the "Smokey & the Bandit " movies ? He was great.......and the song fits BTTM really well.
