Original NFL Monday Night Football Theme Song

Does anyone know the name of it, or by some long shot, have a recording of it? Would really appreciate. Can't find an off topics section to post this.

"One of the trademarks of Monday Night Football is a music cue used during the opening teasers of each program, a Johnny Pearson composition entitled "Heavy Action", originally theme music for the BBC's Superstars series. ABC had acquired the rights to Heavy Action specifically for Monday Night Football."

Oski Wee Wee,

Thanks Oski Oui Oui. Yes I heard it was called Heavy Action but I was not sure because I tried to find it on YouTube and wasn't there. I thought I may have been wrong on the name So I gave up. I'm going to do a search of the composer. Box D dude, Steve, has it and was kind enough to offer to email it to me. Thanks.

Many of my dreams start with that theme...ROTFLMAO :smiley: :wink:

Oski Wee Wee,

The best intro theme of all time. I don't know why they went with those hick themes they have now. "Are you ready for some football?" How dull.

This is a little off topic, but does anyone know what the song is called for the Fox Sports football song?
