Now Im not the biggest sports fan on earth...but even Im a little pissed at two musical developments over the past few months that seem to be the music industry attempts to destroy sports from the inside out.
Now pardon me I know Im late the the party on these, but Im not the hippest to the sports team anthems circuit so Im hoping some of ya'll will be in the same boat.
First offense was Scott Stapp doing the Florida Marlin's theme song. Who is Scott Stapp? Yeah thats what I thought but the moment I heard the song I new immediately...
Oh yeah its the singer of Creed! You know how I knew that? It sound like every other goddamn Creed song! I feel like I cant exactly make fun of this song because its like making fun of Courtney Love...shes a hot mess and we all know it and this hasnt changed in years and it wont.
I think the only thing I can really say about this song is that the lyrics are so bad I thought it was an SNL joke at first. But sadly....with a little hope and faith you will soar are serious lyrics. Also I find it funny that they are the Marlins (a type of fish) and he keeps talking about soaring....maybe he thought a marlin was a bird....
Now onto the next offense. This one I really didnt believe was real at first but then I realized that Prince is just that crazy. Apparently he was so moved by a recent game of the Minnesota Vikings that he felt compelled to write a fight song for them based on their team colors.
WTF WAS THAT?!?!?! I mean what the hell!??? Seriously?!?!?!? I dont even know what to say. I mean technically its a fine song but its a fight song for a football team and it has a pan flute. Im pretty sure there is a law that pan flutes must remain 300 feet away from football at all time.
Oh and the icing on the cake is how the lyrics are written out. You can see them posted on the initial article on myfoxtwincities.com which is the news station Prince sent the song to.
"all of the odds r in r favor
no prediction 2 bold
we r the truth if the truth can b told"
Why did he write it out like a 12 year old online??? Im so confused right now.
I love you Prince...but this makes me embarassed for you. Im going to listen to Little Red Corvette on repeat until I forget this travesty ever occurred.
