    I'm going to the game tomorrow - making a cd for the ride. I'm trying to find the song that was played during the unveiling of the super bowl 39 banner at gillette against the raiders in the season opener. I've tried to search all over and can' t find it. It had a opera-ish feel to it and is fairly famous. Can anyone help me with the name/artist of it? THANKS.

    Was it Richard Wagner, Ride of the Valkries?

    Pats1 is always at your service (because writing down the songs played at Gillette is always part of the game experience.)

    THE SOUNDS OF THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
    One of my favorite parts of the Patriots gameday experience has become burning a CD to listen to on the ride to the game and while tailgating. The Pats have a standard group of songs they play at every game, mostly rock songs from the 70's, 80's or early 90's, with a few current hits sprinkled in.

    The playlist at Gillette Stadium changed during the 2005 season. For the most part the songs stayed the same, but their placement during the game was switched up a bit. For 2006, the only major change was to the touchdown song.

    1) "We Ready" by Archie Eversole - this song was added to the Gillette play list in 2003 and is played during pre-game warm ups and also occasionally during the game when the Pats are on D.

    2) "Tom Sawyer" by Rush - when Tom Brady and the other Patriot QB's take the field for their pre-game warm ups about 40 minutes before game time, this is the song that plays. Brady usually runs down the field and pumps his fist to the crowd in the end zone during this song.

    3) "Back In the Saddle" by Aerosmith - during the 2005 season, this song was used as the background music for a strange pre-game video package that featured Pat the Patriot riding a sea horse through the logos of the Patriots opponents. This wasn't shown during the playoffs however, and thankfully has not returned in 2006.

    4) "Carmina Burana" by Carl Orff - this is played during a highlight video that it shown right before the Pats come running out of the tunnel. It was replaced for a portion of the 2005 season, but returned to this spot for the playoffs and in 2006.

    5) "Crazy Train" by Ozzy Osbourne - when good ol' Ozzy yells out "All aboard!", the crowd goes wild because its time for the Patriots to take the field!

    6) "For Those About to Rock" by AC/DC - this song is used for one of the pre-game highlight videos that airs right before kickoff. In '03 and '04, it was used before the Patriots made their entrance, but now its more often used while everyone is mulling around during a TV timeout before the opening kickoff.

    7) "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC - it often plays before the game, right before the opening kickoff. It is also used when the Pats are on D.

    8) "Beast of Burden" by the Rolling Stones - A couple seasons back, Tom Brady requested that this song be played when the offense took the field. The Pats won that game and the tradition has continued. It is usually played during the TV time out before the offense's first possession. It is also used sometimes when the Monster.com Fan Cam shows fans on the Jumbotron.

    9) "Song 2" by Blur - whenever the Pats make a field goal you'll hear this song.

    10) "Rock & Roll Part II (The Hey Song)" by Gary Glitter - for many years, after the Pats scored a touchdown, the Foxboro faithful celebrated to this song. The throwing of snow to the tune of the music during the Dolphins game in December 2003 is an image etched in the minds of Patriots fans. However, due to Gary Glitter's multiple arrests for kiddie porn, the NFL has asked teams to stop using the song in 2006.

    11) "Elevation" by U2 - after the banning of Gary Glitter, the Patriots held an online vote to choose the new touchdown song. This was one of two winners and is played immediately following the touchdown. U2 was chosen because they also played the Super Bowl XXXVI halftime show.

    12) "1812 Overture" by the Boston Pops - this was the second song chosen in the online poll. After the extra point is converted, this song is played and the Minutemen shoot their muskets in tune to the music ala the Fourth of July fireworks.

    13) "Machinehead" by Bush - after the Patriots score, this song plays while they are preparing for the ensuing kickoff.

    14) "Let's Go" by Trick Daddy - it sounds like a hip hop version of "Crazy Train" and was added to the pre-game mix for 2004. In 2005, it became the most often played song when the Patriots are on defense. It appears it may have been a one-year-wonder, because so far it isn't back in 2006.

    15) "Hells Bells" by AC/DC - the Patriots defense needs a big stop on 3rd down? This song used to be the one that got the fans on their feet. Unfortunately it seems to be used much less frequently now with songs like "Let's Go" taking its place.

    16) "TNT" by AC/DC - apparently someone in the sound booth must be a big AC/DC fan. Another song that plays at random points, but more often when the Pats are on defense.

    17) "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns 'N' Roses - this classic used to get played right before the opening kickoff. In 2005, it was replaced by "For Those About to Rock". Now, the opening guitar part of the song is used when the Pats are on D, but the entire song doesn't seem to be played anymore.

    18) "Never Scared" by Bone Crusher - a song added late in 2003, I believe I read somewhere that it was at the request of Ted Washington. Unfortunately, it seems to have been removed from the rotation as of 2005.

    19) "Kernkraft 400" by Zombie Nation - this song is better known as the one played when the Bruins score a goal, but the Patriots use it from time to time as well. It seems to be played at times when the opponent has made a mistake such as an interception or missed field goal. I specifically remember it being played when Mike Vanderjagt missed a potential game tying field goal at the end of the September '04 game vs. the Colts.

    20) "We Are the Champions" by Queen - self explanatory!

    21) "Number One" by Nelly - images of Bob Kraft dancing with Lawyer Milloy and Ty Law at the first Super Bowl victory parade come to mind when this song is heard.

    22) "Encore" by Jay Z - the anthem of the second victory parade, Ty Law forced Bob Kraft to dance yet again to this song.

    23) "Won't Get Fooled Again" by the Who - after a Patriots victory at home, this is usually the first song played. It contains the line "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss"; try as teams may, nobody has been able to knock the Patriots from their perch at the top of the NFL.

    24) "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen - this tune is played while the fans are filing out of Gillette after another victory.

    25) "Beautiful Day" by U2 - U2 performed this song during halftime of the Pats first Super Bowl win, and it is played after the preceding two songs after a victory at home.

    Other contemporary pop hits always work their way into the music rotation for a few games - Usher's "Yeah" and Nelly's "Shake Ya Tailfeather" come to mind from the past few seasons. If I notice any new songs being played repeatedly, I'll update the list. Until then, this is the CD I'll be listening to in the parking lot before yet another Patriots victory!

    Also sung by the Harlem Boys choir in the movie Glory when they charge Fort Wagner at the end. Always thought this was a great sports song

    thanks for the post pats1.... I am going to be sure to make a copy of all those songs for the game I am heading to against the texans.

    on another note.... do you or anyone else know where to find some of the clips that were done with songs in the background and radio broadcasts and interviews cut in. I heard someone with it last year at a pats game, and he said it was from weei, but I couldnt find it. it was really well done. I think may have been done after one of their super bowls

    Those were done by WBCN, and used to be their website until Week 6 or so of last season. Now, they just do them during the pre-game show and don't post them online anymore.

    There were a few Super Bowl XXXVI montages (with radio and music) I found online awhile ago, but that's it.

    #3 Jersey

    I'm assuming that the specific portion in question is the movement, "O Fortuna," which begins and ends the work.

    The only difference between the two versions is in the opening measures. For my taste, I think the ending track (which would be #25 on most CDs) is the better one.

    [For what it's worth, you can get relatively good recordings of this work for $10 or less. The whole thing runs about an hour, and is definitely worth hearing.]
