YES. FO REAL.
Also; the song "Firework" by Katy Perry would be very good in any movie of Uglies.

I'm not. I just listen to the radio when my iPod is on the fritz and I heard it often. It also happened to be new when I was re-reading Specials and it just CLICKED.

BINGO.
That, and the song itself sorta sounds like Perry's talking to someone who doesn't think they're beautiful (read; everyone in the Uglies universe pre-16 and in the City). I kinda saw it as Tally thinking to herself, or maybe Shay to Tally.

Alt rock and maybe a little bit of electronic stuff. Because of all the technology they have. I can see Specials listening to like, nightcore or techno. Heh. Fausto blasts "Military Storm" at the beginning of Specials...
This song, BTW: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_UFVEMrXnQ&list=PL1101F99F42504168&index=54&feature=plpp_video
Or a variation, there are quite a few.

Me too, me too. And I would think pretties would to. Standard music wouldn't be..."bubbly" enough for them I think.

Cept maybe in the Smoke. That would fit. Someone brings a guitar or something and plays it around a campfire.

I've done a couple, but most of them were with teenagers so they kinda sorta went wonky. Adults trying to get kids to do "fun" things you know.

Wish I had some of those...the closest I had was this Christian Youth Organisation based one that my parents sent me too to get me out of the house (And because if you paid for one trip, which they did with my sister, they got one free...), which was promptly interupted by (I kid you not) a group of drunk Navy cadets from the Naval Air Station three to the north who landed A FREAKING V-22B SEA OSPERY VTOL ON OUR BEACH. Yeah...hard to sing songs about Jesus when there's grit flying everywhere and a drunken Petty Officer ordering you to get the "friggin' crap off the bechs."

Same...I did not have fun in that camp. That, and it was during the 4th of July and I missed that with the family, which made it suck MORE.
But, I did get to see a Navy pilot with (if my reading of the medals he was wearing is right) 12 air to air kills, 300 successful flight missions, and a Purple Heart chewing out my camp director over some philosophical thing WHILE THE FORMER WAS DRUNK was awesome. I got to see the inside of the Osprey too. So. Cool...

OH NO, the Ospery is a true VTOL craft. Here's the wikipedia artical;

Beauty, isn't it?

It was INCREDIBLE. Best of all, it had a Mark 19 automatic grenade launcher. Safetied, of course, and carrying no ammo, but the pilot (a really hot chick, I have to say) let me sit in it and pretend to shoot stuff!

According to her, there are actually quite a few female pilots and vehicle operators in most of the military now. Something about how girls handle certain pressures better than males do, including the most common found operating military vehicles. She was really nice too.
You never struck me as a military fan...
