Music On Only A Game

 

Sammy Sosa (I’m In Love With Baseball Now) by Asian Babe Alert (from Diamond Cuts, Vol. 8, Hungry for Music, 2005)

Either this song was written long before it was included on this compilation, or news travels very slowly to Asia.

 

Sloop John B. by The Beach Boys (from Pet Sounds, Capitol, 1966)

Leave it to Perotti to choose the worst song from the greatest pop album of all time. Nice work.

 

Olufeme by Oscar Sulley, The Uhuru Dance Band (from Ghana Soundz, Vol. 2: Afro-Beat, Funk and Fusion in 70’s Ghana, Soundway, 2004)

Before the crash of the economy and the onset of the weirdest paroxysms of this nation’s valiant music industry, it had seemed that every esoteric pocket of music ever recorded was about to end up on compilations on obscure labels. I’m sorry that never happened, because that would have been cool.

 

Do Your Ears Hang Low? by Lisa Loeb (from Sing-Along with Lisa Loeb, Furious Rose, 2008)

Why do you ask?

 

Main Theme from Hoosiers (from Hoosiers, Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, 1986)

This is not in circulation anymore, and a quick glance at Amazon reveals that original vinyl lps of this are going for over $200. Amazing.
