I may be remembering this completely wrong, but I think I remember Tiesto playing a remix of the Albinoni Adagio too - which I have to say didn't really work that well.

Ok, that would explain why I also got some Albinoni referrers this weekend as well, based on a quote in http://rgable.typepad.com/aworks/2004/06/adagio_for_stri.html.

I thought it was a remix of the Albinoni piece as well which I thought was conspicuous as the Americans made their entrance. That piece is recognizable from "Platoon" (and maybe "Gallipoli"?) in a gruesome 'horror of war' scene and I can't help wondering if the reference was intentional?

Maybe I'm nuts. Would it be too difficult to mix that in on the fly, cued by the Americans' entrance?
