I was also trying to identify this cut from ELO over the past few days and just found this discussion. Thanks for the identification. By the way: One more theme I've heard used for sports was Steve Winwood's "If you see a chance, take it" which was used to intro one of the tripple crown horse races years back. They didn't include the lyric, but instead just used the instrumental lead in, somehow stretched out to take up what seemed like forever..
wow... pretty cool. I don't suppose you can help me? There is an old famous instrumental. 60's i imagine. Very slow, 3/4 time, and it's mainly a slide guitar playing a slow sweet melody... mid to very high notes... wish i could hum a few bars, it's in a lotta movies & stuff. It's somewhere in the era i think of the Ventures? but it was a bad with 2 guys names maybe? I also think the title had multiple words in it... think of a hawaiin type setting... anybody? thanks, dan .
