Music on Only A Game 9/19/09

This article is more than 10 years old.

Just can't get enough of the music on this week's show?  Already heard too much of it?  Only A Game's Senior Producer Gary Waleik runs down each musical selection featured this week.

Matchmaker by Tzeitel, Hodel and Chava (from Fiddler on the Roof: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Recording, EMI/Capitol, 2001)

Gary’s take: My favorite line from the movie is when Golde desperately tells her unmarried 19 year old daughter, Tzeitel, that “A husband is not for looking at. A husband is for getting!”

Fanfare for the Common Man by Aaron Copland (from Copland: Greatest Hits, RCA Victor, 1991)

Gary’s take: Kickin’ the Olympic Theme…old school.

Up She Rises by Sam Spence (from The Power and the Glory: The Original Music and Voices of NFL Films, Tommy Boy Records, 1998)

Gary’s take: The Lingerie Football League is missing a good bet if it neglects to have Sam Spence write the league’s theme music. Maybe David Rose and His Orchestra have already provided it, though.

Alligator Stomp by The Cramps (from Look Mom No Head!, Restless Records, 1991)

Gary’s take: Leave it to the farsighted Lux Interior and Poison Ivy to anticipate that someday a South Carolina cheerleader would hunt down and kill an alligator.

Flying by The Beatles (from Magical Mystery Tour, Apple Records, 1967)

Gary’s take: Bold prediction time: the Oughts and Teens will come to be known as The Beatles Decades…yes, plural.

Town Cryer by Elvis Costello (from Imperial Bedroom, Columbia Records, 1982)

Gary’s take: A different kind of crying than what Avishay Artsy encountered in New Hampshire, but this is radio, so we have the homophonic advantage!

This program aired on September 18, 2009. The audio for this program is not available.
