When I wrote about Taylor Hall, The Kingston Cannonball, and his need for a goal song, I was hoping for a comment or two. We ended up with a interesting weekend conversation in the comments and I received a handful of emails with suggestions for both Hall and other players. I also had a suggestion that we should call it "Celebration Music" so that players like J-F Jacques and Steve MacIntyre can be included. Who knew that goal music would be such a discussion-worthy topic? It's not a serious topic, but it's fun to talk about nonetheless. Below the jump, I've added in all of the suggestions from the discussion and reader emails. Who else deserves a song?
|4||Taylor Hall||Cannonball||The Breeders|
|13||Andrew Cogliano||Mambo Italiano||Dean Martin|
|14||Jordan Eberle||The Mob Goes Wild||Clutch
|27||Dustin Penner||Gigantic||The Pixies|
|91||Magnus Paajarvi||Oh Boy||Peps Persson|
|Goal Against||Sway||Rolling Stones|
It's an eclectic list so far, but I like that. It shows a little creativity and is certainly different from the typical arena celebration. What other songs fit this team and these guys? If the longshot Hartikainen makes the club, we know his favorite song, so that one is covered. Should sound system blare Zorg's "I know this music. Let's change the beat." every time Stortini is sent out for a faceoff? Mambo Italiano is on tap for Coligano, what about "Jump Around" by House of Pain for Ryan O'Marra?
