Red Dead Redemption game delay prompts music while you wait

By Ruth Ellen Gruber

The Rockstar game company is set to release a shoot-em-up, Wild West themed video game called Red Dead Redemption, which builds on a 2004 game called Red Dead Revolver. The release of the new game is set for May -- pushed back, apparently, from April.

For those who want to get in the mood, the Australian game news web site Kotaku has posted a wonderful collection of video clips of iconic Western and country songs -- the site calls it a "cowboy survival guide."
Kotaku has selected a handful of tunes that are bound to make you walk bowlegged, squint your eyes, smoke cheap cigars and drink strong whiskey — if you don’t already!
The clips range from Johnny Cash singing Ghost Riders in the Sky, to Ennio Morricone spaghetti western music to the Muppets.....
