The Denver Broncos won the Super Bowl 50 by a score of 24-10. A lot of people might be disappointed because so many like the young quarterback from the Carolina Panthers, but hey, he is young, and I predict that we will see him win the Super Bowl another year in the future! My sister lives in Colorado, so of course, I had to root for Denver. (Sorry, Audrey in Charlotte, North Carolina...don't be mad with me! Just think how happy Louise will be in Colorado!)
Now, the thing I would like to mention...I couldn't help but notice that a good bit of the music that I heard during this broadcast was from England! Yes, I know, I must drive you all crazy telling you these things that come to my attention, but hey...it's true! Coldplay was the headliner during the half time and they were really good. I made a list of every English artist that I heard.
Here is my list:
Jeff Lynne's ELO (When I Was A Boy) - Remember I mentioned this song? It was in honor of my son for his birthday. Very pleased to see it used in a commercial!
(English Band singing Friends during Marmot for Life?) *see note below!
The Shadows "Apache" (Richard said an Englishman wrote it, but the Shadows had a big hit with it.
Queen (and again, but this time with David Bowie) "Under Pressure"
Okay, Richard didn't really want to watch this game with me. (Oh, I know, what can he be thinking? It was a very good game!!) Anyway, I asked him to try to find the singer or band that sang the song "Friends"...they sounded very English at times, but sometimes, not quite...I don't know how to explain it. So...after MUCH searching, (thanks Richard) we found it!
*That song is not English but it is from "The Flight of the Conchords", and they are from New Zealand.
This is the video of the TV ad but if you type in "Flight of the Conchords and friends" into a search engine, you can see them singing the entire song on YouTube and it is funny!
Also, the ad using "Somebody To Love" by Queen...it sounds like Queen on the truck, but the sheep sound like an American trying to sound British, but hey, that is just me noticing these things again! (I am not making fun of Americans trying to sound British, I know whereof I speak!)
