Trying to compile a CD of all-time great songs to air drum to. Actually, my friend has a killer drumset that I jam on occassionally... and would like to play along to this cd.

What suggestions do you have?

Personally, I air-drum like mad to the album "Elvenefris" by Lykathea Aflame, and most stuff from Cryptopsy.

"Drum Duet/Los Endos" -- Genesis (Phil Collins and Chester Thompson)

"Karn Evil 9, Third Impression" -- ELP (Carl Palmer)

You have to wear the headband while you do it.

And yes, I KNOW it was Mike Reno who wore the headband, not the drummer. It was just a cheap '80s reference.

Brazil by Genesis is pretty good, if I remember correctly.

And the theme for Miami Vice.

"The Brazilian." I thought it worked much better live than in the studio.

I second (or third) the votes for "Wipeout" and "Hot for Teacher."

Also ...

Metallica - "Dyer's Eve"

AC/DC - "Thunderstruck"

Motley Crue - "Dr. Feelgood"

Cheap Trick - "Dream Police"

Helloween - "How Many Tears"


... and, despite admonishments, as no such list would be complete without them ...

Rush - "Spirit of Radio"

Rush - "Tom Sawyer"

Rush - "2112" (especially Overture, Temples of Syrinx, and Finale)

The Wild And The Young intro by Quiet Riot.

Metropolis Part I: The Miracle And the Sleeper by Dream Theater (although this may be too advanced ;) )

Wildside by Motley Crue

Hmm, I can't seem to think of any modern songs that are good to air drum. :hmmm:

That's a great list. He's got Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater and his side project Liquid Tension Experiment, listed several times. :thumb: Lots of other great stuff like Tool and Frankenstein by Edgar Winter Group.

I don't have a set of air drums, but if I did, I'd play

In The Air Tonight - Phil Collins

She's Waiting (For Another Love) - Eric Clapton

Closet Chronicles - Kansas

Anything with a Bo Didley beat; Not Fade Away, Who Do You Love, etc.

Fool In The Rain - Led Zeppelin

Y'all break a leg.
