Music on Only A Game - 6/27/2009

  • Arts and Sports (from American Journey suite) by John Williams from American Journey, the Official Music of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games

Gary's take:  Here they are again, my peeps at tha MTC (that’s Mormon Tabernacle Choir for folks who aren’t hip-hop…like me). AMERICA’S CHOIR!!!

  • Hansel and Pretzel by Henri Rene and His Orchestra

Gary's take:  When in doubt, go kitschy. I doubted, so we kitsched.

  • Anthem (Ale, Ale, Ale) by the Crowd from Soccer Rocks the Globe, World Cup USA ’94

Gary's take:  If Soccer is really “The Global Game”, why does it sound like every soccer anthem was recorded in some guy’s basement in Youngstown, Ohio?

  • Under the Boardwalk by The Drifters from Atlantic/Rhino Definitive Soul Collection
  • The Good Old Dallas Cowboys by Waylon Jennings and Troy Aikman from NFL Country, 1996

Gary's take:  Charlie opined that, should members of the Dallas Cowboys make music, it would certainly be heavy metal. Here’s my musical rebuttal.

  • Cold and Wet by Ween from God Ween Satan

Gary's take:  Sorry. Ween just seemed to work following a story about a bunch of folks in Nebraska who paddle around pools in kayaks.
