Every Friday night we smooth our way into the weekend with music, the universal language. These selections demonstrate that despite what is being passed off as art today, there is plenty of really good music available. Come along and enjoy!
“Football combines two of the worst things in American life. It is violence punctuated by committee meetings.”
The NFL season officially kicked off in Denver Thursday night as the Broncos hosted the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.
Pro football is back.
I recall as a kid watching “This Week in the NFL.” The program showed highlights of the previous weekend’s games, narrated, with great music in the background.
Tonight, timeless, famous NFL Films Music to get you in the mood for pro football. No narration. No videos. Just that unforgettable gripping, driving music from NFL Films.
NFL music is the music that helped define a style that still sets the standard.
Steeped in tradition but relentlessly innovative, this music has created a reputation of the highest production quality, powerful, dramatic moods and dynamic support for the most compelling visual content. The reason for this simple, NFL Films Music is not created as “production music”, it shares DNA with great film scores and classic popular music. This music is created to be part of the artistic identity of NFL Films. This is music that wins Emmy Awards, puts a lump in your throat and makes your eyes well or your fist pump. Designed to tell stories, this music is an invaluable creative resource.
Enjoy as we move from NFL Music to vintage NFL photos of some of the greats and great games. It’s pro football time!
“I like football. I find it’s an exciting strategic game. It’s a great way to avoid conversation with your family at Thanksgiving.”
“You got one guy going boom, one guy going whack, and one guy not getting in the end zone.”
“Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.”
That’s it for this week’s segment.
Have a great weekend and watch some football!
Before we close, a final quote from…
Famous comedienne Phyllis Diller.
“The reason women don’t play football is because eleven of them would never wear the same outfit in public.”
