Unknown Song #27 - Racing to Victory

Song - Racing to Victory
Artist(s) - Mandy Schleifer, Daniel Schleifer
Released - 1993
Primetime Usage - 1994-96
Contained on - pyr 702 (Sports/Action), (YouTube link)

Featured Highlight - Bears @ Packers, 1995

*SONG IDENTIFIED* - 10/4/19  

Continuing the theme from World Cup Shuffle, here's another cheesy NFL Primetime song.  Unknown Song #27 makes World Cup Shuffle seem like a perfect football track by comparison, though.  US #27 is jazzy, but not in an appealing way, and the instrumentation is quite tinny.  I'm not certain I would rate it as the worst Primetime piece, but it's definitely down there.  How this awkward song got paired with a Bears/Packers classic at Lambeau is anyone's guess.

*EDIT* - The BMG website isn't hosting the Pyramid music label anymore, so I replaced that link with Benjamin Lane's youtube post of this song.
