Song of the Week: “Basketball” by Babe the Blue Ox

by Douglas Cowie on 4 April 2014

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Basketball” by Babe the Blue Ox:

Babe the Blue Ox — “Basketball”

A song about basketball to mark the Final Four weekend. If you’re reading this outside the United States, you might be asking, huh?

Babe the Blue Ox’s album The Way We Were is a real gem. Big riffs, beautiful melodies. It came out in 1998. The final four that year were Kentucky, Utah, Stanford and North Carolina.  Kentucky won it all.  As of writing, they’re still in with a shout in 2014.
