Ok I was at the Fair Saturday night and there was a ride called "Ecstasy" as you can see in the picture it goes around and round and than it goes upside down... As I was watching these people have fun and enjoying the ride the music they were playing was "I wanna die" As they are tipped upside down in the ride... I thought to myself what kind of music is this to be played when they are up there like that... Have you ever been on a ride before they played some kind of song similar to that?

Hi Feona it was just strange i don't think they meant anything by the song it was one that was probably already loaded in the player, I just found it strange that would even play something like that.. Mainly when all those people were hanging upside down like that.. I said to my sister oh yeah what a song to play when they are like that up in the air...

That is the weirdest thing I have ever heard. It's like when your driving on the highway and you're listening to that rock song "I'm on a highway to hell". I don't think I would have rode that thing. Maybe it was funnier than it looked..and people got over the "die" thing..anyway, it's still ":/"

I don't think these people were even listening i heard more screaming than anything really but the song really stuck out that's for sure.. They were playing all kinds of music of course... Thanks for your reply!

I remember as a teen being on a ride at our State Fair and it was similar to this one, turn you upside down and all around, and they played "Highway to Hell". I remember thinking, "Oh good grief is this really a song I want to go out on if this ride should break!". LOL I know they try to pick music that will draw crowds to their rides as well as add to the adrenalin rush of it all, but jeez, sometimes their picks are a bit off IMO.

Yeah they are for sure.. I agree I wouldn't want to be up there listening to that and than just more than likely freak out.. I'm sure i would... If something happens it would be like your last song, hopefully that would never happen but after seeing that ride and seeing how it works i knew i wasn't going up on it...It was fun watching it go though... lol thanks for your reply!

No I have never been on a ride where they are playing that kind of music. Most of the fairs around here play hip hop music for their rides. I couldn't imagine being up in the air going around and around or up and down and hearing a song belting out.."I wanna die"...that is crazy. Have a good day.

That's just it though it was a hip hop song... than it got into a beat, it was a very strange song or at least i thought so anyway.. But music like that really shouldn't be played on rides like that.. Thanks for your reply!

I don't blame you, I knew i wasn't going to make any attempts to on that ride after seeing that ride flip like that.. LOL It was fun to watch though that's for sure.. My son was in a ride beside it that was the only reason why i was over in that area.. There was another ride that of course was on a track that went all the way around in a circle.. yet another one i wouldn't want to be on.... Thanks for your reply!
