Unknown Song #28 Identified
Wednesday, October 2, 2019
Also… a poster named Retromatic identified Unknown Song #28 on librarymusicthemes last month, so expect an update on that soon (hopefully tomorrow). I should really check that board more often…

Non-Highlight Track - Industrial News
Contained on - KOS 47 (Very News - original album release only), YouTube Link
Contrary to my recollection, "Industrial News" wasn't actually used on NFL Primetime all that much. It was never the primary Inside the Numbers theme, and it was mostly placed in episodes with multiple ItN segments. As a result, the song was disproportionately used during the show's playoff broadcasts. It was also occasionally used for the other things, such as the 1998 playoff preview shown in the second half of my accompanying clip.
Industrial News comes from the Kosinus album, Very News. Unfortunately, this track was replaced on the retouched, streamable version of the album contained on various library-music websites, so finding a hard copy rip somewhere (or just a hard copy) is probably your only option. It seems everything involving Christian Poulet has been purged from those websites for whatever reason.

I've also found a couple non-highlight tracks, so look for posts about those in the near future.

Unknown Song #50 - Legends
*SONG IDENTIFIED* - 9/22/21
Here it is, the last of the mid-2001 trio of new NFL Primetime songs and the last (AFAIK) new Primetime song period. Unknown Song #50, which I've seen called "Legends" in some of the mp3 sets over the years, is similar in tone to Bad Company. It's more funk-like and less orchestral than Bad Company, but it still fits games & teams with a dark & grinding theme. Going through the highlights, it seemed to get used for most every Dick LeBeau/Corey Dillon Bengals game in 2002 and for a lot of Raiders games in 2004. This song really is perfect for the Oakland Raiders and their historical reputation, so I used one of those '04 Raiders games as the highlight for this post.
There's only one Unknown Song that I'm aware of that hasn't been posted yet. I tried to post it back in 2017, but the video was blocked by the NFL and I had no other clips with that piece. My last few video posts have been copyright tagged by the NFL without being blocked, however, so I'll probably try to upload that one again in March sometime. After that… I'm not sure. I'll note whenever a song gets identified, of course (so keep checking the blog), and maybe somebody will upload some 1987-88 NFL Primetime episodes someday so I can see if there are any other Primetime tracks I'm unaware of. At any rate… thanks to everyone who's been reading this blog so far!

New Info Updates
- Wheels in Motion is contained on a production-music album, after all. It's on MPM001 from Manhattan music, which was released in 1987. I left the youtube link for those that find it more convenient, however.
- The Far Turn & Fast Man, in addition to being on two separate Valentino compilation albums, were originally on the same Valentino Album (V-CD 13 - Sports Themes). This album isn't online that I can find, but the previously posted compilation albums still are. However, the Valentino library apparently isn't hosted on Universal anymore so I had to change the links to their BMG source instead.
- The Right Stuff was originally contained on EA 2015 (Broadcast) from the Emil Ascher library. This library isn't online, AFAIK, but this info at least provides a release date for this song (1984). I'm not sure if the alt mix is on this album, however (*EDIT* - the alt mix isn't on the EA album, but the regular version is virtually identical—thanks to Craig-UK again).

Unknown Song #49 - Pro
*SONG IDENTIFIED* - 9/22/21
Among the three mid-2001 additions, Unknown Song #49 is probably the weakest. It's still better than most of the tracks that didn't last, though. It also—unlike US #48 or the one I'll be posting next during Super Bowl week—doesn't appear to have been used in 2002 for some reason. Anyway… accompanying US #49 is the Cardinals/Lions season opener from 2003 where Anquan Boldin set the rookie debut receiving record. Enjoy!
Oh, as an aside, it sounds like Chris Berman & Tom Jackson will be returning to host NFL Primetime for the conference-title games this weekend. That's pretty cool…
*EDIT* - This song was used a couple times in 2002 (thanks to Robert Enriquez on youtube for the info).
