In the past there have been songs that have been used to communicate a message in the NFL. Queen has been used and abused and actually probably been made richer by the easily adaptable "We are the champion's and "Another one bites the dust". Those songs are edgy and apply the right amount of bite, or did for their era in football. But they got played to death and became football standards to communicate a message, a theme and in the end a school band motivational shove.
I don't know that I want to ruin a great song for this end purpose. I just love music, I really love new and fresh songs that move me to action or that speak to me. I'm most often moved by a songs beat and/or rhythm in my head and the words often are a bonus. But it is always the music first. And if it matches up to an event or a period in my life it becomes a mental bookmark. If it moves with music and words but also speaks to the times and moves others in a similar way, it seems to become an anthem of time or of an idea.
Is there a song like that for you that represents the Seahawks? I don't follow everything so I don't know everything in current music. Yea, I sound old and very dated, I am alotta of the time. But I still like and I am open to just about anything. What moves you and represents for you the Seahawks in 2012? I heard this version of this song for the first time last night, so if it's had it's time and passed, forgive me. It's a cover of a song by Fun called "Some Nights". I chose this version because it communicates the right amount of unashamed exuberance and youthful enthusiasm that conveys how I see the Hawks. I just see a slow pan to Greg Scruggs starting off that drum line and it being picked up by more drummers in the stands and the whole CLink stadium rockin to the chorus.
Plus this version is more I don't know...all inclusive than the original band's video...I like that. With full respect and acknowledgement to Fun, the songwriters Jeff Bhasker, Nate Ruess, Andrew Dost, and Jack Antonoff and this group that covered it Jake Coco and friends.
So what's your suggestion? What says Seattle Seahawks 2012?
