Phoenix Coyotes Soundtrack

The HLOG has finally taken their Creative Challenge off hiatus and our first challenge was to create a soundtrack for our teams past season. I wanted it to be wholly meaningful and so, as is my nature, I made a joke of it first and went to my iTunes, clicked shuffle and happily played along trying to create a reason for whatever song came up. Then I got down to business and created my ACTUAL playlist, but first… the nonsense!! Enjoy.

Invisible – Ashlee Simpson
All the naysayers from the offseason who thought we’d be dead last and then turned around and called us a Cinderella story and talked about how exciting we were, etc. BAHAH! Stick that in your pipe and smoke it. We don’t need it.

Breaking Free – High School Musical (Yeah, yeah. I don’t want to hear it.)
A couple high points in the season when we cracked into the playoffs with a team that no one expected to go anywhere. Take some of that.

Kids of the Future – Jonas Brothers
Rookie Camp, ‘nuff said.

Heartache Every Moment – HIM
Every time we played the Minnesota Wild and got spanked. The beginning of the season when we faced the San Jose Sharks and couldn’t seem to get one past the Tosk. Man, I am cringing just thinking about it.

Stupid Girls – Pink
Ok… too easy. I’m not even going to go there. It’s sexist. Use your imagination.

Close Yet Far – CKY
The end of the season. We were so close to the playoffs we could taste them… unfortch, almost doesn’t count and we had to sit out, once again. Damn.

OK, on to the actual playlist because I’m bored with that already (Gemini…) –

First Game of the Season – “Alive” by POD
Our arena was jam-packed and the tempo was crazy-insane. As fans, we finally had something to look forward to and it was obvious in the atmosphere in there. We came for a winning team and a good show and the players were only too happy to oblige.

Signing Ilya Bryzgalov – “You Are The One” by HIM
I wrestled with using Enrique Iglesias’ “Hero” but thought better of it… Haha.

Trading Fredrik Sjostrom to NYR, Keith Ballard and Nick Boynton to FLA – “Say Goodbye” by Chris Brown
Yeah, I’m a typical fangirl but I fell in love with my boys over the years and I hate losing my favs. There are those (who shall remain nameless to protect their honor) that I don’t even notice gone… and then there are guys like these.

My pet, Kyle Turris’, First NHL Game – “Right Where I Belong” by 3 Doors Down
Pretty self-explanatory. He belongs with us.

End of the Season – “Come So Far (Got So Far to Go)” from Hairspray
Yeah, that’s right. I know my team has come a long way from where we were even just a year ago but I’m okay with it. Every game we got better and more comfortable and even though we have probably have a long road ahead of us as far as winning the Cup is concerned… we’re on our way.

That’s probably (not) the best I can do but I’m going to leave it or else I’ll spend far too much time trying to make it perfect… never works. 

"Take some of that."


Hopefully you can do the spanking against the Wild because Gretzky refuses to be spanked; he does the spanking.
