You guys are forgetting the song that they played over and over and over.....Lee Greenwood's Proud to be an American, and a Hank Williams song about Iraq...Can't remember the name. I don't listen to Country, but remember those songs.

Played alot of Heart, Motley Crue, Metallica, and Iron Maiden while over there. Played them so much that I had to buy some of the cheap copy cassettes they had over there in Saudi. Anyone else buy some of them while there and remember the pastel colored plastic cases they came in?

I have those still, somewhere around here! LOL!

We listened to The Fixx (A LOT!) and The Cure's "Killing an Arab". Dang, those Saudis had all kinds of shit as far as cassettes goes. I bought Judas Priest, Gary Newman, etc. I guess I'll have to hunt them down and post what I bought over there. Funny.
