Will 'Hockey Night in Canada' be able to successfully replace the old theme?
Wed, September 3, 2008

TORONTO - The CBC received nearly 15,000 submissions in its quest to find a new theme song for "Hockey Night in Canada."

A total of 14,685 entries were submitted to the broadcaster's Anthem Challenge contest prior to the Aug. 31 deadline, CBC said Wednesday.

The network is holding the Canada-wide search after the rights to the iconic jingle that opened its weekly hockey broadcast for some 40 years were snapped up by CTV in June.

Agree with Hammertime on that such famous songs with words are follows:

Beetovens 5th symphony,

The Nutcracker

Star Wars,

Star Trek,

X files

Mozart minute.

Mr Holland Opus

The Matrix Theme

and the music band Emigma.

and lots more

Go get cutured Vince. Before lyrics were made there were lots of "Famous songs" without word. Even sometime music artist will fit in "Lyrics" after the song so that way it can fit the actual music.

Even though this has nothing to do with the topic, the reasonable bit of research that David did as to the origin of the moniker "World Series" does not carry it far enough. The self-centered Americans use the phrase "World Champions" for another league also, the National Football League.

Back on topic...who cares...looks good on those idiots @ CBC

holy ignorance Vince, plenty of great and classic songs have no words.

I do agree with many people on this. TSN DOES NOT know how to shoot a hockey game properly. However they DO know how to get indepth with sports and sports coverage in General.

Stoping Tom Conors son ((His name i forget. I was too busy enjoying the goldeye's game)) who manages his father's music etc in trying to negoate a price with CBC to at least maitain some tradition with HNIC and CBC. After all Stompin Tom did write a song about the NHL back in the good old days.

However the THEME SONG HNIC was what put CBC on the map and made it known for hockey and was the main reason why people watch CBC in the first place.

Well heres to CBC to where the only thing that's keeping it toghter are "The Simpsons"

Vince in Ottawa, I already mentioned it should be considered a theme, not a song.

David, please watch your language in future. I mean, using the word "homework"?!?!? Tsk.... ;-)

I'm sure you saw my reply to the genius what is Jays fan!

The CTV Network picking up the HNIC Theme song (Song with no name) was a no-brainer. The CBC's trash became the CTV's cash.

By the way, it is not considered a song if it doesn’t have any lyrics. I have never heard any lyrics associated with it. That makes it instrumental theme music.

The CBC should adopt Stomping Tom Connors' song "The Good Old Hockey Game" as its new theme song.

By the way, the suggestion is free of charge to the CBC.

This is totally off-topic but I just wanted to back up "Jays Fan" regarding the origin of the term "World Series" as it applies to baseball. There is no reliable record of the series being named after a newspaper called "The World", aside from extremely unreliable "urban myth" websites.

The reference books are all in agreement that the name "World Series" was chosen as the name of baseball's championship in the 1880's "when promoters and journalists sought to arouse interest among fans".

There was indeed a newspaper at the time called the NY World but there is no evidence on record that it had any involvement in baseball whatsoever.

Always do your homework before arguing a point, folks.

Yeah the song is an ad for CBC and the new words to the song are dum da dum da DUMB DUMBS
