When I was in the Forces we did a concert for a school with learning difficulties. The bandmaster made the announcement "We would now like to play a tune from the Jungle Book . . . I want to be like you" Now thats embarrassing.

Also with the same band, we played slaughter on 10th Avenue three days after the twin towers disaster! (It was re-named as nightmare on 10th avenue for that day, but still...) :shock:
The best faux pas came when we played it as the opening piece at the premiere of the Burt Lancaster film "Moses the Lawgiver" before the title "Aces High" was applied to it - probably a major factor in the change :shock: :lol:Anglo Music Press said:Just to be boring, I'm a great fan of the film Battle of Britain and Aces High is in fact a Luftwaffe March in the film, rather than an RAF one.
So its use in Germany is not THAT inappropriate. Just a bit of a reminder!!! :lol:
