I don't know who decided that a song by Phil Collins was a way to enhance the "drama of the NBA" - probably the same person who thought that Bill Walton deserved to be miked and Big and Little, or whatever they were called, should perform at the All Star game - but please...MAKE IT STOP. Surely there are other songs that properly manage to capture the excitement and anticipation of an elimination game without dulling and offending our senses. This is the NBA, not the PGA. Know your audience.
Somebody stop this man.
Here are some suggestions that may prevent people from changing the channel or straight killing themselves just to get "I can feel it coming in the air tonight" out of their heads:
1. Eminem, "Lose Yourself"
2. Lil Flip, "Game Over"
3. Nelly, "Heart of a Champion" - This song even uses the old "NBA on NBC" theme music.
In conclusion, please don't drive away what viewers you have left by insulting our collective intelligence and auditory faculties.
