Default Re: 2001 vs Sandstorm

Always loved the Theme from 2001 even before it was first played
at Williams Brice. ... Remember seeing it in the Movie 2001 A Space Odyssey
and thinking how "Powerful and Magnificent" it sounded in the Soundtrack.
Never was a Huge Elvis Fan, but when he started using theme from 2001 as an
intro for his concerts in the latter years of his career, I always thought
NOW THAT is the way to make an entrance !!

My first cousin and I took my Dad to the UNC / USC game in 1983 when
it was used for the first time as the team's "official" intro. Wasn't all the
"hoopla" surrounding it then like there is now, and when it first started
playing, there was this kind of "What's Happening" ? atmosphere in the
stands until about mid way through when everyone realized USC was
about to run onto the field to this..... The crowd started getting into it
and the climax with the team running onto the field at the end was
Awesome !

Never fails to give me Goosebumps even to this day. .... Wish they would
simplify it again. All the fanfare leading up to it has sort of taken away
from it IMO. It should stand on it's own for the FORCE it is, and doesn't
need a lot of smoke and mirrors to embellish it.
