Covers, Etc. - Tennis Music











In honor of Wimbledon, I thought I'd put up some music that reminds me of tennis.


pw = you_dont_have_to_visit


01) Andy Griffith - The Whistling Ping Pong Game

02) Bernie Green - Futura (1961) - 03 - Ping Pong

03) Players (1979) (Jerry Goldsmith) - 01 - Track 01

04) The Reincarnation of Peter Proud (1975) (Jerry Goldsmith) - 32 - Tennis with Ann / Meeting Mrs. Curtis


'Players' is the 1979 film with Dean-Paul Martin (Dean's son) as a tennis player & Ali MacGraw. 'The Reincarnation of Peter Proud' starred Michael Sarrazin, Jennifer O'Neill, & Margot Kidder in the paranormal drama. Andy Griffith was on various TV series including 'The Andy Griffith Show', 'The Headmaster', 'Salvage' (I wish that one had stayed on longer), & 'Matlock', he appeared in various films like 'A Face in the Crowd', 'No Time For Sergeants', & 'Rustler's Rhapsody' as well as countless TV movies, he had a successful comedy career as Deacon Andy, and as far as I know, hasn't been publicly associated with Ping Pong. (.........although he has been associated with whistling.)

Originally, I also wanted to put in some music from the films, 'Mr. Hulot's Holiday' & 'Strangers on a Train' which had memorable tennis scenes with Jacques Tati and Farley Granger, respectively. But unfortunately when I went to look for them, I realized they were in that frustrating group of CD's that were in storage, so I had to replace them with some Ping Pong music (......well, it's a kind of tennis). (I know, I know, you don't care.)

Also, I would've liked to put in some music from the films, 'Annie Hall' (with Woody Allen playing tennis) & the more recent 'Wimbledon', but I don't have any music from those films (as far as I know). Also, there's another famous scene in the film, 'Blow-Up', but I don't think I have that soundtrack either (although I think another blog somewhere has shared it, but I can't remember where off-hand).

To be honest, I only thought of putting this up yesterday, so it didn't give me a lot of time to look for other music, but I hope you'll enjoy them anyway.

If you like the Bernie Green cut, I think PixelMutt is still sharing this album at http://pixelmutt.blogspot.com/2006/04/stereo-action-series-bernie-greens_28.html

My track isn't from his copy of the album, so I don't know if there is any difference in sound quality, but I'm guessing the sound quality is probably similar.

Well, good luck to all the players this weekend and to everybody else, enjoy!
