This Charles Barkley Highlight Video Featuring Scandal’s ‘The Warrior’ Rules
Shooting at the walls of heartache (*bang bang*), I am the Warrior. Awesome. Sure, awesome in a completely, as Charles Barkley himself would say, turrible way, it is awesome nonetheless.
And if you think the above video is the only ’80s-esque bit of NBA nostalgia featuring ridiculous soundtracks, you would be sadly mistaken. Hop on over to Sports Grid and you will be delighted to find a Larry Bird video montage featuring “Small Town” by John Mellencamp — or was he John Cougar back then? Or John Cougar Mellencamp? So confusing, but it does remind me of a joke:
Where do cantaloupe send their kids in the summer?
John Cougar’s Melon Camp.
(insert Sad Trombone here)
Moving on, there is also a Michael Jordan highlight package to the tune of Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” to delight you, not to mention Magic Johnson’s highlight reel with Janet Jackson’s “Control” for background music. But for my money, the Charles Barkely/”The Warrior” mashup takes the cake. Little known fact: the lead singer of Scandal, Patty Smyth, is married to tennis legend John McEnroe. Even littler known fact: my karaoke version of the song is worth the price of admission…at a bar with no cover charge.
Victory is mine!
