MUSIC ON TOURS. WHAT WAS/IS YOUR PLATOON/TROOP LISTENING TO?

Discussion in 'Films, Music and All Things Artsy' started by Rudie, Jan 12, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I saw the video for Fools Gold the other day,and it took me back to the NAAFI at St Angelo,where it seemed it was never off MTV or being played constantly in the accomodation.
    It got me thinking about what music I was listening to on various tours.Not just me personally with my walkman,but what sounds seemed to be being played in "boogie boxes" in the rooms and hallways of SF bases around the Province,and what tapes and cds were being passed back and forth amongst the lads.

    So, what is/was your platoon/troop,etc listening to on tours?
