Re: “Musical odes to boxing and hockey

WOW! It's great that you are giving hockey some well deserved exposure. I am glad to see Hockey Monkey by The Zambonis was 6th on your list but, they happen to have over 100 songs solely about the great sport of hockey. They also happen to great songs regardless if they are hockey songs or not.

Here are a few of my faves and my kids faves.

1) "Bob Marley & The Hartford Whalers"
Great song about the demise of a hockey team and the death of a reggae legend. The title alone is genius.

2) "Slapshot Man"
Name checks Al Mcginnis (sp)

3) "Breakaway"
Classic Specials style ska tribute.

4) "Fight On The Ice"
Thin Lizzy meets AC DC meets The Philadelphia Flyers circa 1975.

5) "Great Zamboni Of Devotion"
Sounds like Ray Davies and The Kinks wrote a hockey song in 1972.

I could go on. These guys are obsessive, legendary, smart musical hockey fans. My kids, all of their hockey teams and myself have loved The Zambonis for years.

Thanks for loving hockey,
Charlie
