Music On Only A Game

Music On Only A GameRun To The Playoffs by Dave Robidoux (from NFL Films: Run to the Playoffs, Cherry Lane Music/NFL Films, 2009)

I once thought that no one could out-John Tesh John Tesh. But Dave Robidoux can. Furthermore, even on his best day John Tesh cannot out-Dave Robidoux Dave Robidoux. Which is weird, because I really don’t enjoy the music of John Tesh.

Shut Down by The Beach Boys (from The Beach Boys' Greatest Car Songs, Capital, 1992)

The Beach Boys' greatest car songs? How about…ALL OF THEM!?!?!?

The Topless Dancers of Corfu by Dick Hyman and His Eclectic Electrics (from Moog-The Electric Eclectics of Dick Hyman, Command, 1969)

It's well known that instrumental music can tell a story, but with musical stylings as masterful as these, one can almost hear the toplessness.

Snow Medley (Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow) by Spike Jones (from Let's Sing A Song of Christmas, Verve, 1956) 

Didn't we just exit the season in which this song is played? Sorry…

Don’t Make the Polar Bears Cry by The Lancashire Hotpots (from Pot Sounds, Fuss Records, 2008)

"Pot Sounds" is a riff on The Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds", and the record comes with a Pet Sounds front cover knock off that's pretty green and funny and features goats.

Suggestion for the next Lancashire Hotpots records: "Pot Safari", "Summer Days (And Pot Nights!!)" and "Pot Party".

World So Corrupt by Ziggy Marley and The Melody Makers (from Jahmekya, Virgin, 1991)

And do you know what the cause of corruption is in this song? Fake horns.

Offside by Norman Groulx (from Bon Cop Bad Cop Soundtrack, Dy2, 2006)

Here's one dude who understand offsides.

This segment aired on January 7, 2012. The audio for this segment is not available.
