Well.. that was quite a game against the Leafs last night. Although I have to admit I was rather bored with it until the end of the 2nd period. Too bad Jovo had to take a blindside hit for it to get interesting. It also seemed the building was a little quiet.. but that might've just been lingering effects of this illness I've been fighting off the past couple weeks, as my eustachion tubes (google it if you don't remember from high school health class) seem to be clogged rather regularly these days.
Anyhoo.. the past 2 home games have given us a chance to hear what the media department is using for the new Coyotes goal song, Howlin' for You by The Black Keys. If you've played NHL 11, then you've heard this song as it's included as one of the tracks (although not as a goal song). While I don't mind the song itself, to me, it doesn't evoke the kind of emotion to make me want stand up and cheer and stay standing when the yotes score. However, it was used last night after the game ended as a victory ditty, and there it seemed appropriate there.
The previous song, Crowd Chant by Joe Satriani, is also used in various forms by other teams and is a few years old. The thinking was to bring in something that was unique to the Coyotes and with the words 'Baby, I'm Howlin' for You', does seem to be rather appropriate for the yotes. Whatever the reasoning, I'm not sure it works as a goal song. Maybe it'll grow on me.. maybe not. You tell me. Does it work for you?
