We made this edit back in 2013, but it's circulating all over Instagram now... It was a private edit, so now we're welcoming it to the world! :)FREE DOWNLOAD: -2/fox-nfl-theme-song-x5ight-editFOLLOW US ON TWITTER: twitter.com/X5IGHTLIKE US ON FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/X5IGHT
I've been listening to this theme every Sunday for over a decade and I'd say this transcription is spot on. The left hand is mostly single notes (i.e. simple, provided you can keep the rhythm moving along steadily), and the right hand repeats the same melodic phrase (moved up and down pitchwise) throughout. Other than a few large chords, not too difficult to site read, though the tempo is not for the faint of heart.
Whether it's cheering on football season or anticipating the Super Bowl, this catchy theme song scored for 4 to 7 octaves Handbells and optional Handchimes would be an eclectic addition for a concert! Full of rhythmic fun and suspenseful chord progressions for the ringers and listeners alike. Mallets...gyros...HIKE! Level 3+.Purchase of this arrangement allows for enough copies to be made for one handbell ensemble.Kurt Meyer Self-Publishing (KMSP) Code: KMSP-0004.
(CNN) -- If you're a football fan, the first few blasts of an NFL broadcast theme can make you feel like running through a brick wall. It's superheroes! It's action! It's the entire percussion session wailing away for dear life! As the season descends upon us, enjoy a breakdown of the most iconic football themes you'll be hearing all autumn long. There are so many fascinating parallels and big names involved, you'll be the menace of every commercial break conversation.
This jingle (although it really deserves a more muscular name. Jongle) has it all: heavy brass, heavy percussion, and an opening fit for running into war. If it reminds you of a superhero tune, that's by design. In 1994, then-Fox Sports president David Hill wanted a new NFL theme, and got an earworm while waiting for a Batman ride at a California theme park. When the network tapped Schreer, he was told the vibe was \"Batman on steroids.\"
According to a Deadspin article on the tune's conception, Schreer turned to the cinematic sounds associated with gritty action movies to lend his new theme some gravitas and \"put a real dark, manly, masculine football tint to it.\"
Yes, THE John Williams. Who else could it be The heavy drumbeats, the lusty trombone, it's basically \"Star Wars\" for football fans. The film composer of all film composers had already produced music for NBC programming when he was tapped by the network in 2006 for a new Sunday Night Football theme. Unsurprisingly, they were pretty thrilled with the result.
If you don't know the origins of this theme, and were given 100 guesses, you probably still wouldn't get it right. E.S. Posthumus was a group made up of two brothers that combined classical and mathematical music concepts with modern, orchestral instrumentation. (The \"E.S.\" stands for \"experimental sounds.\") CBS has also used other E.S. Posthumus works for its sports programming. Sadly, one half of the duo, Franz Vonlichten, died in 2010. However, his brother Helmut Vonlichten collaborated with Queen's Brian May for a special version of \"We Will Rock You\" that was played during Super Bowl XLVII in 2013.
Football just wouldn't be the same without David Robidoux. This prolific sports composer has given us the official Super Bowl theme, the NFL's 100th Anniversary theme music, all kinds of special NFL films and programming music and of course, the NFL Network's main theme, titled \"Run to the Playoffs.\" (He's also responsible for the NASCAR theme and other iconic sports sounds.)
Robidoux and many of the other artists and themes that are big in the NFL broadcasting world are under the umbrella of the company Associated Production Music. APM provides music for most of the NFL, including individual teams. The group definitely knows a thing or two about how to rile up a crowd.
Ironically, the oldest of all of these current NFL themes wasn't actually composed for the NFL. \"Heavy Action,\" composed by British bandleader Johnny Pearson, was actually commissioned by the BBC for various TV purposes. However, ABC knew greatness when they saw it, and snapped it up for their MNF broadcasts starting in 1975. (It became the main theme in the '80s.) ESPN carried over the theme, with various updates and re-instrumentations, for their MNF games starting in 2006. It's still highly recognizable in the UK as the theme for the BBC's sports show \"Superstars.\" Of course, all the best themes are easily recognizable, and \"Heavy Action\" only needs four notes to light up the brains of sports fans across the globe.
The original theme music for NASCAR on Fox broadcasts was in the same style as other Fox Sports properties (such as for NFL and Major League Baseball coverage) and was originally used from 2001 to 2007. In 2008, Fox introduced a new theme for its NASCAR telecasts titled NASCAR Love, performed by country singer Toby Lightman (an instrumental version was used for the opening segment).
\"Digger,\" a CGI-animated gopher character that was voiced by Eric Bauza, began as a symbol of the corner camera and was later adopted as an unofficial mascot for Fox's NASCAR coverage. Beginning with the 2009 Daytona 500, Digger was extended into a series of short cartoons that aired during the pre-race show; country music superstar Keith Urban recorded the theme song for these shorts. Storylines revolved around Digger and his life beneath the infield of a fictional racetrack. Other characters include his girlfriend Annie and the track's security chief, Lumpy Wheels (respectively named after the daughter of Fox Sports president David Hill, and former track promoter Humpy Wheeler). Digger's souvenir trailer at the tracks attracted sizeable crowds of families with young children. However, the cartoon segment drew wide opposition from regular viewers of the broadcasts.
Despite continuous outrage from the NASCAR fan community, as well as talk from the NASCAR community that the Fan Council was not pleased with the situation, Fox did not announce any plans to drop the usage of the characters, and even had posted pictures of holiday-themed versions of the Digger die-cast in 2009 and 2010. In response to the comments, in 2010, the Digger cartoon was not shown during pre-race shows and Digger appeared less often at the bottom of the screen. Throughout the 2011 season as well as the 2012 Budweiser Shootout and Daytona 500, Digger appeared very sparingly, usually only during commercial bumpers. As of the 2012 Subway Fresh Fit 500, all appearances and references to Digger were dropped entirely from Fox's NASCAR broadcasts. However, nods to it occasionally came up (for example, at the Talladega race in 2014, when Carl Edwards showed debris on his firesuit, Mike Joy commented that he hoped that nothing had happened to Digger, to which Darrell Waltrip responded, \"Digger's retired\").
