Famous Football Songs of the Southwest Conference, c.a 1960 (Columbia Records Limited Edition for Esso and Humble Oil and Refining Company)

famousfootballAh. The students are back in class, a crisp breeze is blowing and the drum line is practicing. Its only natural that a young lady’s thoughts turn to football.

Here’s a little something for my favorite socially awkward, dreadlocked, Heisman trophy winning player. Ricky Williams, you will always be a Longhorn to me.

As a bonus, I dug up two pretty awesome CDs recently. Produced by NFL Players, Inc in 1996, NFL Jams and NFL Country paired football stars with popular musicians. NFL Country is kind of lame, but take a listen to Toby Keith and Troy Aikman doing this original tune. (Aikman channels Hank Hill. It works)

Of the two CDs NFL Jams is by far the better offer. There are some pretty recognizable names of this disc, Phife (Tribe Called Quest), Pharcyde, Havoc. Most awesome is that there are two Wu-Tang tracks. Three years following 36 Chambers, one year following the classic Liquid Swords and coinciding with Ghostface’s first solo release Ironman, here we are treated to Method Man with the Philadelphia Eagles Ricky Watters and Ghostface with Andre Rison of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fast Life – Ghostface and Andre Rison

This last one is from West coaster Celly Cel, who I had never heard of before, but has that signature mid-90’s California sound. The best part about it is that I think 49er’s fullback William Floyd might be the better rapper.
