Friday Factory Tune: Team Sports at the Olympics Edition

By February 19, 2010Friday Factory Tune

Jonathan Coulton performing “Curl” live for the first time, a Dec. 6, 2007, show in Minneapolis. “Come on, baby, put the rock in the house.”

Lyrics and .mp3 download of studio version here.

We looked for a video of Warren Zevon doing “Hit Somebody! (The Hockey Song)” but nothing live, videowise. However, thanks to the wealth of live recorded performances available at Archive.org, here’s a 2000 performance of his at the Center for Living Arts, including the tribute to hockey goons co-written with Mitch Albom:

There were Swedes at the the blue line
Finns at the red
A Russian with a stick heading straight for his head
Brains over brawn-that might work for you
But what’s a Canadian farm boy to do
What else can a farm boy from Canada to do
But what’s a Canadian farm boy to do
What else can a farm boy from Canada to do

Thanks to Jordan Zevon for allowing his father’s performances to be posted. The full range of Zevon in concert: solo, with a band, drunk, but mostly sober.
