HNIC's Summer Musical Interlude

07/07/2008 at 3:16pm EDT

The Hockey Night in Canadatheme contest has drawn a ton of entries—and while rather a lot of the submissions sound more like rejects for upcoming Star Wars movies, there are many entertaining efforts in there as well. (And keep in mind: it’s much easier to criticize these compositions than it is to actually write and submit one, risking obnoxious remarks from hockey fans.)

One entry which caught my attention, I’ve embedded on the video player below. It’s entitled the “Jazzy Hockey Night” and its unlikely composer and performer is 11 year old Addison Leigh of Ajax, ON.

I didn’t even know how to tie my shoes properly when I was 11 years old, so color me impressed.

*You can vote for Addison’s composition here, if you like. Or check out the rest at CBC.

Update 10:51am PT: For another view, Puck Daddy declares “Hockey Night in Canada song contest makes ears bleed.”

Harsh. And he hasn’t even heard my entry yet…
