...and I need it now.

I have to have a song like "Put me in coach, I'm ready to play" to use as part of a presentation for a YMCA fundraiser. There will be pictures of children playing over this.

This song was used last year, so we can't use it.

Themes are: Sportsmanship, children, fun, happy, etc.

The Song YMCA is out.


Due: immediately.

Thanks!

Bishop Allen's "Click Click Click Click" sounds like it could be an ad for Kodak - but, aside from fun and happy, it doesn't really meet your other standards.

Here's the song...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LpmrZbTu1o

That's the only song that really stood out for me - and my life is so un-child oriented that I don't know what else would work. I have some world music that also might do, but that's about all I can think of...

Not coming up with anything great, but maybe if you're stuck ...
Queen: "You're My Best Friend", maybe mixed with "We are the Champions" or "We Will Rock You" as canonical sports anthems.

Clint Holmes "Playground in My Mind". No sportsmanship, but it's got children, fun, and happy pretty well covered.

Blackstreet, Mya, Ma$e & Blinky Blink - Take Me There

Third Eye Blind - Semi-Charmed Life (if you can ignore the lyrics, like seemingly everyone does, it's a very happy sounding song)

I swear to ye gods there's been at least one commercial out here with that song in it for the last decade. I loves me some GBS, but enough is enough.

(I'm guessing it hasn't been quite so overexposed in Oregon, so Guru, fill yer boots, great track, etc.)

My vote would go to Dylan's "Forever Young".

I went with "Linus & Lucy" off of the Joe Cool's blues by Wynton Marsalis. If you are unfamiliar with the song, it's a jazz version of what you would call the Peanuts theme.

So, you're saying you ignored all this advice and went out on your own? Good for you, Aaron!
