    Re: track & field songs

    Here's a decent one from Dan Fogelberg (you always have to have somebody who's done you wrong to make it a classic,right?)

    Well I`m a runnin` down the highway
    Got the road beneath my wheels
    Said I`m runnin` down the highway
    Got the road beneath my wheels
    Ain`t nobody in this whole wide world
    Who knows the way I feel

    Said my woman up and left me
    Left me for some other guy
    Said my woman up and left me
    Left me for some other guy
    You know I never understand it
    Though I try and I try and I try

    Well I`m a runnin` down the highway
    Got the road beneath my wheels
    Said I`m runnin` down the highway
    Got the road beneath my wheels
    Ain`t nobody in this whole wide world
    Who knows the way I feel

    Speaking of which, don't forget 'The House of the Rising Sun':
    'I'm going back to New Orleans
    to wear that ball and chain'

    How come nobody has written a song that people can group-run to-
    you know, like the Army has it's various left-right ditties (see the Bill Murray movie Stripes for takeoffs like Doo Wa Ditty Ditty)...

    And elite Olympic rowers always have "Row Row Row Your Boat" to fall back on....
    Say, in the "Fours", what happens to oar synchonization when they begin singing Row Row Row Your Boat in rounds?
    I can just see the coxwain going nuts!

    All right M.C.- here's one for ball-and-chain afficianados-
    (since I'm on a Johnny Cash streak-

    from the refrain of the Cash number "I Got Stripes"

    "And them chains, them chains they're about to drag me down."

    Or that 60's Aretha Franklin hit
    "Chain, chain, chain (chain, chain, chain)
    Chain of fools"

    All I could think of for the Shot Put is:
    "I Shot the Sheriff, but I Couldn't Shoot the Deputy" and
    Johnny Cash's "I Shot a Man in Reno Just to Watch him Die..."

    Weak.

    >U2

    And for the runners by U2-Where the Streets Have No Name:

    I want to run
    I want to hide
    I want to tear down the walls
    That hold me inside
    I want to reach out
    And touch the flame
    Where the streets have no name

    Since Mike Roth doesn't seem to have picked up on this, I'll point out that this thread is ignoring the best events in our sport--the walks! There are all sorts of great songs with walking in their titles, starting with "You'll Never Walk Alone," "I'll Walk Alone," "Walk Right In" and lots of others.

    An Aussie band that have toured with Belle and Sebstain also have a tune called "Little Athletics" (this is what track and field is called for 5-15 year olds in Australia).

    Lyrics are here: http://www.candlerecords.com.au/candle/ ... &albumID=4

    I am with tafnut here. That Lola sure could run. An easy, uncomplicated stride,good knee lift, maybe a bit stiff across the shoulders. That girl sure understood even pace. Her sense of pacing was absolutely stunning. Yes, the score was intersting but I was more impressed by the way she kept her form througout the entire movie. Talk about deja-vue all over again. Well, see the movie!
