Primetime Usage - 1988Featured Highlight - Week 12 Sum-Up, 1988
It's a little repetitive, but this song has the perfect energy for sports. To make sure you could hear it, I had to go with an end-of-episode sum-up instead of a regular game highlight because the one game highlight I have is even worse in terms of sound quality. Chris, Tom, and Pete are entertaining, though, so I'm confident you won't feel too jipped.
There's a track called "Pedal to the Metal (a)" on Dave Volsky's youtube account that sounds like the exact same song, but with different instrumentation. I'm guessing the NFL Primetime version is either b or c, but I haven't been able to confirm that because—again—NFL Music Library LPs don't appear to be streamable or downloadable anywhere. According to discogs, Pedal to the Metal is on NFL 122.
*Update* - Dave Volsky sent me (b) & (c) and they are actually just 60-second & 30-second cuts of (a). I guess somebody could have ripped off William Soden, or he could have another, similar track that sounds similar.
