Unknown Song #59 Identified

That was fast…  Thanks to Godzfire's sound-editing skills and his use of an audio fingerprinting program, US #59 has already been identified as the underscore version of a song called "Rainwater."  Eric Cunningham & Chris Lang, the composers of "Pure Glam," also feature on this one, as well as some guy named Chris Wright (I couldn't find any info about him).  Rainwater is housed in a different library than Pure Glam, though—the Killer Edge label from Killer Tracks.  It's on EDGE2, titled Rock: Alternative 2.  I listed the year as "1999?" for the release of EDGE2 because the Universal website says it was released in 2000, but Discogs has EDGE13 coming out in 1999.  Universal has the release date for the first umpteen Killer Edge albums as all being January 1, 2000, so I figure they just weren't being too thorough there.

Purgatory Primetime - Unknown Song #59 - Rainwater (underscore)

Song - Rainwater (underscore)
Artist(s) - Eric Cunningham, Chris Lang, Chris Wright
Released - 1999?
Primetime Usage - 2006
Contained on - Killer Edge EDGE2 (Rock: Alternative 2)
Featured Highlight - NFC Divisional Round Preview (from Wild Card Sunday Episode), 2006



Two weeks ago, I profiled the use of "Pure Glam" for the AFC Divisional Preview from the 2006 Sunday Wild Card episode.  The NFC Divisional Preview from earlier in that same episode also used a new song.  This song has not been identified, however.  It sounds like a generic grunge instrumental with some loud, punctuating drums.  I'm not sure what more to say about it than that, but please reply or contact me if you know what this track is.

Oh… and enjoy Super Bowl LVIII.
