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

Beetovens 5th symphony,
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.

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"

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.

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.
