NFL films music

Recommended Posts

I grew up watching/loving NFL films and especially their music (with the classic John Facenda narration). I don’t like the Raiders but “autumn wind” is the best of nfl films music, in my opinion. Anyone else have a favorite nfl films song?

I was always partial to the magnificent eleven - just a good song for highlights.  Salute to Courage was good too - play that after a W for sure.

This thread is badly in need of some videos.  

I’d help but can’t manage that on my phone.

Agreed.  I love those old songs.  Every once in awhile you get the fix on you tube, and yes, the autumn wind is the best, am no not crazy about the Raiders either.  I really just don’t care about them.

“The Linemen” ftw!

 

Those grainy shots of a pulling guard throwing a forearm into someones throat....heaven!

Back in the Rockpile days, most AFL teams actually had a band AND cheerleaders.  The Redskins and Baltimore Colts actually had marching bands, like college.

I think it's called "Roundup"

My Favorites (or at least most memorable) from NFL Films (Sam Spence) are (in no particular order):

A New Game

The Final Quest

Magnificent Eleven

Round Up (posted above by row_33 in the Burger King commercial)

Classic Battle (posted above by vincec)

The Equalizer

The Lineman (posted above by 4_kidd_4)

The Raiders (posted above by Major)

And this, of course, still gets me pumped up whenever I hear it. Of course in my head I hear Howard Cossell's intro to the game over the music.

 

 

And one more random one. This is a song by Bill Conti (of Rocky music fame) written for the James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only, but the NFL used it in the early 80s for some highlight videos. I think it was used for a highlight film of probably the best game I ever saw, the Dolphins/Chargers epic 1981 overtime battle in the playoffs.

Used to have them on the Madden games too, but I think there was some kind of law suit and the NFL can't use the music anymore.
