    Choose from the poll or add your own. Some of these songs are not patriotic...I realize this, and it's intentionally ironic.

    in a modern setting, I would actually like to hear the song "My Hometown" by Bruce Springsteen. I think that would fit nicely with the man out of time theme.

    I choose absolutely none of the above.

    If they wanna put in some patriotic old timey tunes from the war, that's cool.
    But no modern-ish cheesey patriotic rock.

    The modern scenes should only have a score, any "pop" type music should only show up during USO scenes

    yeah I agree with Boredguy. I would rather have the honky tonk sort of American WW2 songs than any of these pop songs. They all seem a bit on the nose anyway.

    A song like "Praise the lord and pass the ammunition" from Bioshock is more what I had in mind for Captain America.

    None of the songs in the poll. This movie will be set predominately during the 1940's.

    Honestly none of these songs. But I'll pick Team America just for the hell of it.

    I love how all the songs have NOTHING to do with an actual hero. Just songs with an "America" in it.

    As all of those were written after the movie takes place...and we all know only Tarantino can pull off contemporary music in a WWII setting, at least moreso than Joe Johnston....none of the above.

    I love Born in the USA. I love American Idiot. But besides both of those songs not being overtly patriotic, but rather cynical and critical...they would sound REALLY OUT OF PLACE IN WORLD WAR II.

    I would prefer to hear some music from that era worked in. Like if there is a romantic scene, Glenn Miller's Moonlight Serenade. If there is a scene set during Christmas (which would be cool), Bing Crosby singing "White Christmas" in the background. For a scene when Cap is in a French bar a song by Édif Piaf is playing....better yet, if they could somehow homage that scene from Casablanca where an undercover Cap (say in Paris?) is in a bar and gets the patrons to start singing La Marseillaise as a distraction.

    Imagine a form of this scene in Captain America:



    Now THAT would be awesome to see.

    Not sure I would want this as Cap's main theme or anything, as I think a score would probably work better. However, I wouldn't mind if they incorporated a portion of the Kinks, Catch me now I'm falling into a part of the movie. Link below.

    http://new.music.yahoo.com/kinks/tracks/catch-me-now-im-falling--16512892

    To listen to this song that contains the words "Captain America" in the lyrics expand the yahoo music player and skip to the next track and keep doing so until you reach Catch me now I'm falling and then hit play.

    Was thinking some more on the Kink's song that I just posted. It may not seem appropriate for the time frame of the movie, but it might work okay as a song to transition between WWII era to present day. Imagine the music being soft and no lyrics to begin with and Cap and Bucky getting onto the missle (provided they go this route) and they are going through the air trying to disable the warhead, then finally doing so Cap starts calling out to Bucky we have to go and then bucky is stuck so he kicks Cap off and Captain America is falling, while the lyrics become a little more noticable. Then the war head explodes and he sinks into the water and it scans into more of a present day shot with Nick fury looking at a screen with Captain America's location and the lyrics again say more definitively this is Captain America calling. I don't know perhaps it's too hokey, but thought it might be able to work if done correctly. Also thought the song might work good for a sequel where things are more in present day and the music would make more sense for that era.:yay:

    Love the Glenn Miller suggestion. I keep imagining a Cap training montage or fight sequence set to an edited version of "In The Mood". Or a slow dance set to The Andrew Sisters' "I Can Dream, Can't I?"

    I'd love for their to be something from Louis Armstrong or Sinatra in there too.

    I am still hoping Marvel will wise up and not have ANY modern scenes in THIS movie, so NONE of the songs listed above would work for me [much like the Bowie song did NOT work in QT's WWII movie]. Keep it true to the period.

    I'd love me some Neil Armstrong. If I could just have one, I'd like one of hte romantic scenes to have Moonlight Serenade in the background. With that said, if they homaged that scene from Casablanca I'd have a smile from ear to ear. That is a scene that can still bring tear to my eyes.

    I believe the poll is supposed to be a joke, as the OP indicated.

    With that said, America f*** yeah and Real American. :yay:

    Or some version of this song. I'm deadly serious about this.

    This one also. Maybe for the main titles or for a montage.

    Yeah,a lot of people didn't get the joke.

    Although,it would be sooooooooo badass if "With God On Our Side" by Dylan played some point in the ending credits.

    None of the above please. Cap is a patriotic character & all, but using any of those songs would make it feel cheesy.

    I feel an instrumental of the National Anthem, somewhere in the movie will be good.
