Episode 8: Music of Joe

Joes, Attenhut!

I'm alone once again for Bravo Team Episode 8: Music of Joe.

Due to time and the fact that a couple of days ago, I fell and injured myself, this time out, I take the lazy way.

I go through YouTube and find some G.I. Joe related songs.

The list includes:
The opening of the G.I. Joe movie
The Ballad of G.I. Joe

And from the album Welcome To Cobra Island (by Wordburglar):
A Letter of Snake Eyes Pt 1 - 3
Call Destro
Chuckles (The Last Laugh)
Fred Broca - The Broca Beach Remix
I don't want to go to Cobra-La
Rank and File
Rap-Viper
The guy with the disguieses
Venomous Ideology
Welcome to Cobra Island.

Then I end with the end credits from the G.I. Joe cartoon.

If you enjoy these (especially the Wordburglar stuff), check out his website: http://wordburglar.com/ and help support him.
