#3. Rush – A Passage to Bangkok                                                                                                                                    Requested Through – Email Request Line – [email protected]                                                                        Requested by – The Airstreem Astronaut Major Materd in Pequannock , NJ                                                      3

The thorn in Jim Monahan’s side Major Materd  sticks at #3. with his request for “A Passage to Bangkok” by Rush. Very clever with that request Materd, and yes I do have those days lol! Im sure if you found a Passage to Bangkok you would quickly find out that you are most likely banned from entering that place LOL!! Rush, consisting of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart, possessed a unique ability to craft elaborate stories within their songs. “A Passage to Bangkok” is a prime example of their prowess as musical storytellers. It serves as an exploration of various international cultures and the diverse experiences that come with them, all tied together by the central theme of seeking new adventures.            Great Job Materd! Salute!

#2. Jimi Hendrix – All Along the Watchtower                                                                                                              Requested Through – Facebook Request Line – Scotty B wdha                                                                                 Requested by – The Woodbridge Division Commander John L, Major Jenna L, and Ops Mama Tina L in Woodbridge , NJ                                                                                                                                                                2                                                                                                                   The Woodbridge Division takes the two spot with their Covers themed request for “All Along the Watchtower” by the late great Jimi Hendrix. When it comes to iconic guitar performances and redefining classic songs, few artists compare to the legendary Jimi Hendrix. One of his most celebrated works is his rendition of “All Along the Watchtower.” Originally written and recorded by Bob Dylan, Hendrix’s interpretation transformed the song into an electrifying and unforgettable masterpiece. Hendrix’s guitar work in “All Along the Watchtower” is nothing short of extraordinary. His signature distorted tone, combined with his impeccable control over the instrument, created a sonic landscape that was both powerful and mesmerizing. The iconic opening riff immediately grabs the listener’s attention, setting the stage for an electrifying musical journey that unfolds throughout the song. While Dylan’s original version of “All Along the Watchtower” carried a folk-inspired, introspective quality, Hendrix’s rendition took on a more intense and psychedelic character. His soulful vocals, backed by the raw energy of his guitar playing, added layers of emotion and urgency to the lyrics. The song’s atmosphere shifted dramatically, with Hendrix’s interpretation embodying the social and cultural turbulence of the late 1960s. Great job Gang! i love the Covers theme that you are going with this week! Salute!
