45-year anniversary Monday night football's unforgettable theme music
Today Monday Night Football turns 45 - not least on a Monday! From 21 September 1970, the largest match of the weekend was accompanied by a fistful of title music. Fox's Score Productions, a music business that specializes in theme tunes and backing music, had Fox working for Bob Israel's Score Productions at the beginning.
While Fox kept his right to this track, the show continued after a few years with a new one. "Monday Night Football is still on TV, but after seven years my topic was changed to someone by the name of... Bob Israel," Fox said about his former chief. First there was a simple release with the name "ABC - Monday Night Football Theme", which was broadcast from 1976 to 1981.
Then, in 1982, Israel's Score Productions was created to upgrade this one. Although the firm had reserved the right to the tune a dozen years earlier, they used it primarily as backing music and made it an officially recognised theme only in '89. His first four tones of the opening tune of the UK songwriter became a synonym for African soccer, and the tune is probably one of the most widespread and recognizable topics in TV programming ever.
In 1989 Hank Williams Jr., also a 1989 singer, revised his former smash hit All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight into a blue rock in the pub who talked about "turning on his TV for some pork fun". It was a great triumph and was on the programme in various guises for over 20 years.
William's enthusiastic grumbling "Are you prepared for some football?" became just as recognizable for the show as the opening note of "Heavy Action". Early pre-season promotion with Williams' music. Unfortunately Monday Night Footbal (which switched from ABC to ESPN in 2006) skipped Williams' 2011 theme after making conflicting comments about President Barack Obama in Fox News.
Heavy Action" was the name of the network's return, and this year on the occasion of their 45-year jubilee they revised the theme once again. Yeah, we're definitely up for some soccer.
