I get numerous press releases on various things. Many I have no care for (usually NFL related things that aren't of interest to me, sometimes it's electronics and their deals with other sport leagues). Others pique my interest (Kayem is now the official hot dog at Times Palace!).
This time around, I found one that not only piques my interest, it may pique your own.
BMI -- "Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) is an American performing right organization that represents more than 475,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers in all genres of music" -- released a list of some of the most popular music titles played at arenas and stadiums for the 2009-10. Their charting covers the sport seasons continuously between July 1, 2009 and ending June 30, 2010.
Music is not only a great unifier at sporting events, but it also cements some tunes in our psyche. How many times have you heard "Na, Na, Na, Kiss Him Goodbye" sung during the waning moments of hotly contested games and playoff series? Or heard Queen rising everyone in unison to stomp their feet and clap to the tune of We Will Rock You before, during, and after a game?
Point is, movies have their soundtracks. So do sports. The official release is below the jump, identifying the most popular tunes at NFL, Major League baseball and NHL games.
