Islanders Soundtrack -- The Keys To Our Hearts




The Canucks yesterday announced that the Japandroids' 'The House That Heaven Built' will be the new song that the team takes the ice to. Pretty cool.

I know we've had more votes and referendums on what the goal song should be than all 29 other teams combined, but I think the Isles' soundtrack is lacking. For the record, I was a big fan of 'Live is Life' as a goal song. I thought it was a cool, unique, and fun goal song for the boys.

Now, we have the most generic of songs for the team when they step on the ice, score, or scored on.

I thought it would be fun to see what everyone here in this community thought should be the staples. What songs should we use for:

1. When the Islanders take the ice?

2. When we score? (Woo!)

3. When they score? (S**t!)

I've written in here before about my love for Everton Football Club. At EFC they have a long standing tradition that the team walks out to the same song every game. Its not the most amped up tunes you'll ever hear -- but it's a cool tradition.

For us, I'd love to hear a song from 1972 for when we first step out. I think that would be a cool way to subtly pay homage to this franchise's beginnings. So that's why I chose 'Burning Love' by Elvis Presley.

For our goal song, I say it now and I say it again -- we had it right with Live Is Life -- but since Zenon Konopka took his talents elsewhere, I'd feel like I was stealing from him if I picked the Opus Jam again. So I went with:

Maxine Nightingale - Right Back Where We Started From (via chinita41)

For the song to be played right after we let in a goal -- I thought this was a whimsical way to go about it:

The Black Keys - Tighten Up [Official Music Video] (via theblackkeys)

Like I said, I know we go through this way too much, but I hate how this team doesn't try and establish a different precedent from other organizations with the little things, like game experience.

So, this is a judgment free zone -- obviously -- so just post what you think and let's have some fun with this one.
