I've been round Nemesis a few times with an iPod in a zip-up pocket and earphones in. :)

I remember listening to Mighty Wings by Cheap Trick and Smells Like Teen Spirit, both worked quite well!

Why Skulldude why?

Go to the TTF Wiki article for this.

But let's go with Green Hill Zone - Sonic Original for Spinball.

This made me chuckle rather a lot! That song is depressing, whereas Air is not! You should ride again with your iPod on shuffle, and hope for a more lively or relaxing (but not depressing) song!

I don't listen to music on any of the attractions - I would assume it takes away the atmosphere! If I were to take my iPhone on Nemesis however, I guess it would have to be;

Lady GaGa - Born This Way

And for Oblivion;

Lady GaGa - Edge of Glory

For the big 5-
Thirteen: '64' by Mellowhype (The chorus goes well with the freefall drop, initial drop, the verses go well with the queue)
Air: 'Blind Faith' by Chase and Status
Rita: 'The Fountain' by Pendulum
Nemesis: '50' by Mellowhype (again, I just think its goes)
Oblivion: 'Spirit Within' by Audiomachine

Maybe Rob D - Clubbed to Death would sound good as you approach Nemesis. 8)

After having a scroll through my playlist I think
For the late corkscrew- acceptable in the 80's by Calvin Harris
For oblivion- closer to the edge by 30 seconds to mars
For air- fly little bird by Paul weller
For nemesis- I am the resurrection by the stone roses
For thirteen- I hear voices by kasabian
For Rita- lord don't slow me down by oasis
For sw7- she's a weapon by twisted wheel
And for the Alton towers general day out would be greatest day by take that

Bizarrely, for a song that isn't heard anywhere often, this seems to be on the radio at some point during my journey to the towers every time I go. No idea why.

Always makes me think of enterprise for some reason.
