    Default Tonight Show Appearance

    Ok, so we were told to watch his appearance, and that in the second verse, there would be a "special message." I watched it. I didn't see anything of note during the second verse. So, what was that all about?

    Did something fall through? That Twitter message about the second verse has since been removed. Hmmm. Sammy whispered something to Jay as he shook his hand after the performance, and Leno looked real uncomfortable. Maybe the Tonight Show people screwed up somehow?

    As for the performance, it was ok. Nothing overwhelming, but pretty damn good for a guy who's 66. "Knockdown Dragout" is not Sammy's greatest song, by any stretch. Sammy's greatest strength is his gift for coming up with a great melody, and that song is not very melodic at all. On top of all that, us die-hards already heard that song years ago, so the excitement, at least for me, was just not there. Having said that, I'm glad he played a song that he actually wrote, rather than some bullshit that was written for him.

    I think the message was that they would use this song for the NFL
    This coming season.

    That's funny cause he already did a song called Knockdown with Satch for the NFL.

    Same song. I think I got mine from iTunes and it's got the NFL logo on it.

    "On a Roll" and "Up for Breakfast" are now the 2nd and 3rd worst Sammy songs.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    I rather enjoyed that.

    On a roll is still the worst one.

    not sure he's ever given less effort to lyrics in his career. And that's saying something.

    Did anyone catch the music they played for the closing credits? It sounded pretty good. Where did it come from?

    The song was originally for the NFL to use as cutaway music for their broadcasts in 2011. Don't understand why anybody here would think the lyrics would be spectacular. The music and chorus is typically what is used for cutaway music.


    That being said, why he'd put that song on this album is beyond me.

    I wouldnt say he been sitting on it. He/the NFL released it 2 years ago. The music is solid, the lyrics are weak. Its NFL cutaway music essentially.

    I dont think he should have put on a stand alone solo album though.

    Even though my poster name is Dave's Dreidel, I really do like a lot of Sam's stuff.

    I just wanted to put that out there first, because that song sucks.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Agreed. But at the same time, itís an NFL theme song and probably isnít worth slamming Sam about. Iím not going to think about whether the MNF theme song moves me lyrically either.

    Iíll wait to slam Sam for the other songs on the album.
