Music for Super Bowl Sunday

It's Super Bowl Sunday - XLIII. I remember I, except it was not I and it was not the Super Bowl (although people had started to call it that), it was the NFL-AFL World Championship Game. We all know what happened.

The Packers did not do as well this year, but the Vikings still suck.

As a boy, I loved NFL Films and John Facenda reciting the week's highlights as if he were calling play by play for the landing at Normandy. The music was brilliant. No John Facenda here, but some of the music including "The Classic Battle" and "Raiders." Great scenes from the Ice Bowl begin around 2:30. This is for the Reddess:

But how about some great Super Bowl musical moments? (Sorry, no costume malfunctions.) Whitney Houston during the first Gulf War.

And U2 after 9-11.
