There are several songs about hockey out there, but there is always room for one more. And that is where the Edmonton Journal is stepping in. Three Edmonton bands have each recorded what could be a “new puck anthem” and are looking for votes to determine a winner.
Mikey Maybe and the Mitchmatic’s rap song Served Cold was inspired by Jordan Eberle’s goal of the year last season. What will likely give that away, is that the song begins with “Eberle, Eberle, Eberle, Eberle,”
Flash Jam’s Copper and Blue is focused on the team’s 2011-12 season and features a few lines Oilers fans find themselves saying every game; “Let’s go, Oilers, let’s go!” This song is definitely more rock-pop.
Tupelo Honey’s Can’t Stop could be seen as more of a rock song, and sounds as though it could be a song that might be applied to any team. It will be interesting to see whether an Oilers’ specific song might have helped Tupelo Honey earn more votes.
It’s a fun contest and after the relationship that local band Ten Second Epic has forged with the Oilers, it’s great to see other bands go after the same thing. Members of Ten Second Epic have sung the Canadian anthem before a game, and performed a special show on the Oilers’ opening night this season outside of Rexall Place.
Voting for this contest runs until Monday October 24th with the winner announced on Thursday October 27th. You can vote and listen to all three songs on the Edmonton Journal’s contest page.
