Unknown Song #29 (Looks Like We Made It?)

Song - Unknown Song #29
Primetime Usage - 1991-05
Featured Highlight - Chiefs @ Seahawks, 1999

The next couple posts will highlight a couple unidentified songs that were used quite extensively on NFL Primetime.  The first, Unknown Song #29, is probably the most famous of the "longing" Primetime tracks that often accompany struggling, frustrated teams.  The style & instrumentation are also reminiscent of the music from the SNES RPG Lufia & the Fortress of Doom.  This song predates Lufia by at least a couple years, so it's almost certainly a coincidence, but it's interesting nonetheless.  Anyway…  I saw this piece referred to as "Looks Like We Made It" on at least one of those downloadable NFL Primetime music collections that have been circulating a while (like the Mark Polinsky set, but it wasn't specifically that one).  I have no idea if that's actually the track's name or if, say, somebody with bad ears thought it somehow sounded like the Barry Manilow song of the same name.

US #29's video accompaniment features the Seahawks hosting the Chiefs in the final regular-season game at the Kingdome.  This contest also effectively decided the West division title that year, giving Seattle their only playoff appearance in their last 13 years in the AFC.
