Do you know the story behind this piece of music?
A Canadian classic in the hockey world for many many years ~
It was the theme song for the Saturday evening featured hockey game on CBC.
It came time to renew the contract and CBC didn't offer enough for it, or some such thing. Long story short, they lost the right to play it for those Saturday Evening games. Since then, CBC hosted a contest to find a new theme song. They found one which has been used for this entire hockey season.
It is very good ~ but not the one I grew up with.
THIS is the song I remember and will always associate with hockey.
My boys love the "old" song.
Calvin is learning it now, but Fraser was the first to play it.
He even performed it at a piano recital ~
it went over REALLY well.
Of course it did ~ we are Canadians! :)
