Song Lyrics – Sporting Performances

There was this line I put for the performance of Chelsea against Barcelona in the CL semi finals on my Facebook status

They paved paradise, put up a parking lot…
– Joni Mitchell, Big Yellow Taxi.

The obvious reference is to the ‘parking the bus’ tactic they used to destroy the game and try to win by hook or by crook…

And on asking about the KKR performance for this year by a friend, I was quick to say

Bungle in the Jungle, and it’s all right by me…
– Jethro Tull, Bungle in the Jungle.

So that get’s me thinking, what can be a few others? Will figure out a few more and put in, as and when I think of any.

It’s what you do to me…

What is a gawky any-other-average-guy comes up to a girl and says he wants a date and gets refused? And then promises that he will write the best song ever for her, and then when the grammies come in, will she be his date?

You have heard the song ‘Hey there Delilah’, haven’t you? That’s what resulted, in this case.

The song happened, not the best ever, but a very nice one no doubts.

The grammies happened too. The grammy date as well (click here).

It’s surprising, in the modern cynical world, to see people with their hears screwed up right. (Click here for DiCrescenzo’s interview)

A bunch of good people. Tom Higgenson, Delilah DiCrescenzo and her boyfriend.

And here’s wishing Delilah the best for her trials for the 3000m steeplechase for US Track and Field trials for the Beijing Olympics. (Click here to keep updated on that)

And yeah, yeah, this is no sports post, but well, this is a blog post alright, and one needs to write, what say?
