Music On Only A Game

Sparks by The Who (from Tommy, MCA, 1969)

Inspired, no doubt, by a lovely round on the bonnie ol' sod. After which Pete, Keith, Roger and The Ox trashed the clubhouse and threw televisions into the water hazards.

Bowling Song by Joe Montgomery (from Cult Hits, Novelty Classics, Vol. 1, Fervor Records, 2013)

Where I'm from, a song about bowling is never a novelty.

Witchi Tai To by Jim Pepper (from The Path, Enja Horst Weber, 1988)

Huh. I always thought this was the fight song of the Wichita State Shockers.


Chanson Theme des Expos de Montreal (from YouTube)

Ahh, les souvenirs. Ahh, les hot dogs. Ahh, la bière. Parc Jarry, vous nous manquez!

Hot Dog Time by Parry Gripp (Cool CDs, 2008)

When is hot dog time, exactly? And does this song really answer that question?
