LOL!
I thought maybe ricky martin's liva lavita loca would be a great tune to hear over and over and over again. Don't you!

I don't see how it being a cover would matter.

Even if the Chili Peppers wouldn't get as much in royalties, it doesn't mean that they wouldn't have to pay them. The performance royalties would go to RHCP, and the songwriting royalties would go to Stevie Wonder.

Now when will they be ballsy enough to theme something to "Special Secret Song Inside"?

someone ought to use YYZ by rush on a coaster (if you've never heard it, download it and listen to it. that song would be amazing on a coaster!)

Great Idea. Even Countdown would be good, hell it's even about a shuttle launch.

Performance royalties are an incredibly small percentage most of the time. that's why most artist don't do cover albums unless it's standards and holiday music that is public domain. The majority of the cost will go to the Writer which, in most cases, as time goes by the percentage becomes less and less. Although, Stevie Wonder has yet to show up on a reality show to make ends meet so it's probably safe to say, he has good legal representation.

Will the people waiting in line have to listen to it also? I mean most of the themed music starts to drive people nuts after awhile. I imagine the same melody over and over would be unbearable.

I got to ride Space Mountain today. Its pretty good and very much like Rock N Roller Coaster (the one in Paris).

There are some cool new effects on the ride, but I was honestly disappointed that nothing changed from the normal Space Mountain before the ride begins.

The music was decent, but I'm not a huge fan of the song (doesn't seem fast enough of a song for a coaster). Still, the music is played loud and really picks up speed and starts actually rocking out near the end of the ride.

All in all, its a fair promotion, but maybe not as radically different from the original ride as I would have liked.

I didn't get to do Screamin' today, but hopefully I'll go to Disneyland again soon.

Wow! I'm excited about this...the RHCP are amazing. I saw them live in Cleveland on Halloween last year.... highly recommended! Of course there are all the jokes about socks and drug use...but they really have matured over the past 24 years. They will have to edit out the "F word" in "Around the World".

I believe that is a really good idea, I've also heard that California Screamin' is going to have Californication be played on it or something like that. It was on the radio here in Ohio....

I remember the Dominator at Geauga Lake used to Have Pink Floyd in the station, I think it would be a cool idea to get individualized soundtracks for roller coasters.

and change the "Ready to go" song, or just add more than one to TTD.

Also someone mentioned that Love Rollercoaster isn't very family friendly, but yet Geauga Lake which is suppose to be a family park, played it. It would be a good song for one of the rides.

*sorry about going a little off track*

yeah, but blood sugar sex magic was a damn near perfect album for those guys, it's hard to top that, and it's good not to repeat your work, either. they still write some good tunes, although it is a more melodic sound than aggressive/funky

LOL, how many truly remember when "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes" came out? We had a fly-by-night video channel here in Gainesville at the time (TV-69 by name, I kid you not). That video was probably played 10-15x/day...

If George Clinton had a love-child with Johnny Rotten...that child would be Flea. :)

Reviews on Disney sites have been less than favorable. The video I saw looked like it might be ok. But, I'm a pretty hardcore DIsney geek and hard to please :)

Just glad it's not permenant....the new Space Mt. in DL is so awesome.

Maybe they could get Wil Ferrell to do the opening of the ride since the drummer of the "Peppers" looks like him!

I agree that it's not good to repeat your work. That's why I'm sick of the power ballads and songs about California that I've heard for the last 10-15 years.

They were one of my favorites in the 80s, but I'm just done with them anymore.
