I do too. Something else I used to love was when the Bulls (Back in the Jordan, Pippen days) used to get announced at the stadium with lights down, strobes and floodlights flashing, and Alan Parsons playing tin the background.

Absolutely it was and when you verify I'm right, as usual, you will find the new voice is Gene Honda.

I'll be damned, I never knew that.

The background music being played before the movie was "Sirius" by The Alan Parsons Project. The first track on the band's sixth album that was released in 1982 caught Edwards' attention. To that point he had done introduced the Bulls' starting lineup to songs such as Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and the theme song from Miami Vice.
"They seemed to work OK but it just didn't really grab anybody," Edwards recalled. "So I'm listening to ('Sirius') and I'm kind of going through it in my head and I said, 'This could do it. This could be the Bulls' intro.'"
That twist of fate is what began perhaps the most iconic player introductions in professional sports. The song has become synonymous with the Bulls, with teams of all ages - professional and amateur - imitating the legendary intro.

Far different sounding than the days of "Animal Stories" with your charming and delightful, ole Uncle Lar.
