Also from the California Capital Air Show video:

Delta Blue Out Pitch
Calvin Harris - Feel So Close *NEW 2012*


I'm not sure I like their new way of constantly changing the music mid-season here and there (sometimes going back to the old, too)... Makes it hard to keep a yearly list of music. :roll:

It was an extra song for when Beautiful Day ran out during landing. They have also used Float On by Modest Mouse.

Wonder what went on while Beautiful Day played out in its entirety to be that late for the DBOP that they had to use an overflow/filler song. :?

Was Float On used for the DBOP as well (earlier this year)?

No, just as an overflow song.

More changes. Some are used only locally for the Delta Pitch, others seem to alternate nowadays, such as the Taxi Back. Here are the latest ones for 2012...

Taxi Out:
Alan Silvestri - Captain America: The First Avenger - Captian America March

Delta (Blue Out) Pitch:
U2 - Beautiful Day (used for most of 2012)
Psy - Gangnam Style (used during the last two weekends)
Elvis - Viva Las Vegas (used at least one day at Nellis)
Charlie Daniels Band - The Devil Went Down To Georgia (used at Moody)

Taxi Back:
Michael Kamen - Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves - Overture And A Prisoner Of The Crusades (used one day at Nellis)
Calvin Harris - Feel So Close (used the next day at Nellis)

After all the trouble we went through finding the previous Taxi Out song, they went ahead and changed it again to something I can't identify... Any ideas? :?


EDIT: Taxi Out song identified.

Not sure what it is yet...but that new taxi out song sure sounds like John Williams.

It's from Captain America - The First Avenger, but it's not on the OST! :? The "most similar" one on the OST is Triumphant Return.

Does anyone know the name of the song for the pre-opener where the team introduces a particular airmen, group of airmen, or for the enlistment ceremony prior to John William's Olympic Spirit?

Affirm. Haven't been able to pick it up with any music-picker-upper software on the PC or on my iPhone.
