Novorossiks Chimes- a ballad written in the Soviet Union to commemorate a battle sometime in the 1800s. anyway, the Phantom Regiment played it, and we wanted it but the guy who transcribed it off the radio wouldn't let anyone else play it. so we found a guy in russia who had access, paid him $100 and a carton of marlboros to get the whole score.

the cowboys
salsa and chimps (the best song ever, but it got dropped from licensing)
peter gunn
louis louis
and (unofficially) budweiser
