What Does The Hawk Say?! Welcome To The Jungle, We Will Rock You because We Are The Champions!

The kids are adjusting to their school and morning routines – starting today the hubby and I are back on a regular schedule since it’s his first day back after his summer break.

You know what that means, don’t you? Freedom!!  I kid, I kid…or do I? Actually, now that I’ll have the house to myself again all day, I’ll get so much more done – and I really need that uninterrupted time to finally get the rest of the boxes all unpacked so our new house finally feels like ‘home’.

Then it’ll be time to party. I cannot wait.

Meanwhile this week’s party is all about – our previous Spotlight Dancer, Amethyst Moon of Life Music Laughter chose the theme for this week, and since football season has just kicked off, she’d like us to choose stadium songs, or songs you might hear at a sporting event.

Seeing as how my played today (yesterday if you’re reading this on Monday), and almost gave the game to Denver in the 4th quarter (after having beat the in the Superbowl), luckily they held on to the ball and scored a touchdown in overtime, finally winning the game. Too close for comfort if you ask me!

Anyway, I thought I’d find a fun Seahawks song to play today. Last season there were so many cool twisted lyrics songs that were changed for the Seahawks (and they were good!) but I couldn’t find them anywhere.

Instead, I found a great song that took the annoying song “What does the Fox say?” and turned it into a fun Seahawks related song instead, with another Twisted by a great Seattle radio personality Bob Rivers.

A University of Washington grad is the person behind the video itself – she had no idea her video would end up going viral. With all the loyal Seahawks fans out here in “12th Man” mode, it’s no surprise it did.

Give a listen to “Seahawks: ”:

Next up is a song by an American hard rock band that was featured on their debut studio album in 1987. The record company was having a hard time selling the video to MTV, but they finally made a deal with the network to have it air only one time at 5:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning.

As soon as the video aired, the networks received numerous calls from people wanting to see the video again. It quickly became MTV’s most requested video. It’s also a song that’s also regularly used at various sporting events.

GunsNRoses

Here’s Guns N’ Roses with ”:

Next up is a song that I always loved when attending hockey or football games. It was recorded for this group’s popular album from 1977, listed as number 330 of “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time” in 2004, and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2009.

Since its release, this song has been covered, remixed, sampled, parodied, referenced and used by multiple recording artists, TV shows, films and other media worldwide. Its memorable two stomp/one clap motif has been used by sports arenas around the world for decades as a rallying cry for the home team.

Queen

Give a listen to with ”:

Of course the previous song cannot be shared without this next one from the same group. It’s a power ballad also from their 1977 album and one of their most famous and popular songs – it remains among rock’s most recognizable anthem today.

  has become an anthem for sporting victories, including the official theme song for 1994 FIFA World Cup, and has been often used or referenced in popular culture. The song has also been covered by many artists.

Without further ado, here’s Queen (again) with “We Are The Champions”:

What are your favorite sports songs or anthems?

Have a great Monday!

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. Queen was the group that has all the football songs, of course! “We Are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You” have to be the top picks. That Seahawks song was cute take on “What Does the Fox Say” and I’m one of the 4 people who never heard Guns & Roses “Welcome to the Jungle” but all great selections you have here.

    I know you’re excited about getting your new home in order and everything finally unpacked now that the kids are back in school and I’m excited for you. Thanks again for the virtual dance – you rocked the house this week and that wasn’t an easy thing to do. Happy Monday!

  2. I must say that is a different way to look at it, but I’m likin’ it. Way ta go girlfriend! A full TOUCH DOWN! You’ve ROCKED THE HOUSE! Way ta go… and by the way your left side bar covers many words of your Post… just sayin’! Have a rockin’ week.

  3. Great Seahawks theme song! Y’all are the nosiest fans in the world, I tell you. lol We were watching the Broncos play the Seahawks yesterday and all I could think was, “Quieten down, quieten down! I need to concentrate.” I was rooting for the Broncos. We are Peyton Manning fans ever since he played at UT eons ago. We almost had y’all, too going into an overtime, but you rascals scored the first touchdown. Oh well…I love all of your selections ~ fabulous football #music, Stacy! Enjoy your time alone getting much needed stuff tackled.

  4. I think we might have heard one or two of those songs Saturday. I was happy to find a couple others that are common stadium played songs–or at least ones we heard Saturday!

    Uninterrupted time at home to unpack, clean and organize? Sounds pretty good!

    Even though we live only a short drive (relatively) north of Denver, we are so not Bronco fans. We root for any team playing against them. So go Seahawks!

  5. Woohooooo I didn’t know you were a fellow Hawk fan 🙂 Yesterdays game was a real nail biter!! My son said, “Always have faith in the Hawks” I told him that I do but that doesn’t stop me from having heart palpitations!! Oh and What does the Hawk say is my fave and I have posted it to my FB soooo many time LOL I drive my non Hawk loving friends crazy!
