Well, here we are. It’s the end of a project… and I decided to end it with a doozy. Going into this tune, I knew that none of these tunes had cleared the 5 minute mark (although a few came close) and I wanted to clear it by a wide margin this time. As a result, there is a LOT more going on here than usual… so much so that I think the song can be divided into three or four sections.
Lyrically, the chorus is a nod to the song title and its origins. I stole the subtitle from the movie “Dr. Strangelove” and replaced “Bomb” with “Spectacle” for this song’s title, so I thought “It’s a strange love, doctor” would make for an excellent chorus! Otherwise, it’s just kind of a romp through a typical Super Bowl Sunday night… again, far more from a fan’s perspective than a player. HOWEVER – and thanks to my friends Mike Huurman and Brandon Fess for this – the players get involved as a challenge flag is thrown at around 2:40.
I couldn’t stop with just that stuff, now, could I? Oh no… so I added MORE! Look out for commentators, clean sections in an otherwise heavy tune, and the requisite end-of-season montage at the end, sending this track over the 9-minute mark. Enjoy! Thank you for listening and for sticking around to see the end of this whole project. This has been a lot of fun for me and I hope it shows in the music.
