Unknown Song #48 - Highlights

Song - Highlights
Artist(s) - Joel Beckerman & Lloyd Landesman
Released - N.A. (recorded in 2001)
Primetime Usage - 2001-05
Contained on - N.A. (ESPN internal)  
Featured Highlight - Falcons @ Steelers, 2002


The most upbeat & energetic of the post-millennium NFL Primetime additions, Unknown Song #48 is one of the best tracks from the show yet to be identified.  It, just like the two songs that will follow this one, was used nearly every week from October, 2001 on.  Being a fun song, it generally accompanied games that were themselves fun & usually high scoring.  Speaking of high scoring, the video to go along with US #48 features the third-highest-scoring tie game since regular-season overtime was implemented in 1974.  One does not generally associate tie games with excitement, but this Falcons/Steelers classic was a definite exception.
