My Hockey Playlist

As an offseason exercise, a friend suggested we come up with a 12- song playlist of hockey-related songs with a reason why each song reminds you of hockey. I kept it at 12 - but it was hard! And, following a friend's example, I added in links to videos in case you don't recognize song titles. You'll probably recognize most of the music, tho.

So here's mine:

1. "The Hockey Song (The Good Old Hockey Game)" by Stompin' Tom Connors
A classic - need I say more? Almost required on any hockey song list.

2. "The Zamboni Song" by Gear Daddies
Another classic. Also almost required on any hockey song list.

3. "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey
This one's for you, Vinny and Marty.

4. "Song 2" by Blur
Woohoo!

5. "Two Princes" by Spin Doctors
Oh, Tacoma Rockets, why'd you have to move to Kelowna?

6. "Rock and Roll Part II" by Gary Glitter
This will always make me think of the Seattle Thunderbirds. Always.

7. "Takin' Care of Business" by Bachman-Turner Overdrive
And this will always make me think of the Kamloops Blazers.

8. "Even Flow" by Pearl Jam
Memories of the Tacoma Dome....

9. "Welcome to the Jungle" by Guns n' Roses
A favorite of the Tampa Bay Lightning - and arenas everywhere. Also a favorite of the college I went to.

10. "I Saw Her Standing There" by The Beatles
GM Place in Vancouver used to play this all the time.

11. "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers
Another for the Tampa Bay Lightning - one of their warmup songs the last time I saw a game in Tampa.

12. "Rock and Roll All Nite" by KISS
Yet another classic arena rock song. Gotta love KISS.
