Hearing the new Warriors theme song on the radio during the preseason made me think of two things:
- That guy's voice sounds a lot like the guy from "Snap" in 'I've Got The Power': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMW0hJIrnvs&mode=related&search=
- How important the theme songs are because we end up hearing them over and over and over on the radio and TV all season long. Most eventually fade into the dark recesses of our subconscious, some become classics, while others were simply unfortunate results of bad judgment (for other examples of this see: "Warriors Basketball, Last 12 Years").
- The "We Came to Play" song from around 89-90. It had the TV commercial with the Warriors going to a playground surrounded by a chain-link fence. I think it was in black and white. I always thought people would freak out and run screaming if they we're playing pick-up and Manute Bol rolled up and said "I got next".
"Don't Stop the Noise". That was the slogan around 90-91-92. Triggers good feelings because of the time, but the more I remember of the song, the more I remember that it was pretty awful. It would go along with this very commercial-like anthem and suddenly takes a sharp left turn into this weak rap about Chris and Tim and 'In walks the Don, Don't Stop The Noise!'. Blech. The rap was Like Bobby Brown's rap in 'Take Control' from Ghostbusters II: http://www.uppercutmusic.com/artist_b/bobby_brown_lyrics/on_our_own_lyrics.html
- "Wo Wo Wo Wo Warriors". It was just a guy saying that over and over again. It lasted a whole season. That would get stuck in my head. I think that was one of the PJ years too so it was like adding insult to injury (or at least adding "Wo Wo Wo Wo" to Warriors).
I can't really think of any more but I do have "Wo Wo Wo Wo Warriors" droning on over and over in my head now.
Which ones do you guys hate/like from years past?
