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?
