It was on a old video i had she never new who compsed it or the name of it. She has always like d this song and it woudl mean a great deal to her and me for me to be able totell her this information and to be able to get ther this song. If i can just find out then i can go buy it. The recording is not that great i just put a mic up to the tv to record it. Thanks again.

I thank you all in advance. The video i got it off of was from an old sports illustraded video with jothan winters. It was in a section called "masterpunt theater" the sencod part of it. its basically football bloopers tape, that they gave out years ago for a subscription. they do master punt theater and show people dropping passes and stuff, then jon talks and says in the second part things are goign better for the players there not dropping things like they were, and then he says now for the last half, and that is when they play this pieace. I hope this helps. I have told her parents of all of you trying to help, and they thank you very much and you are all in there prayers.

    My guess would be that it's an original cue scored for picture in a Handel-esque style. (Almost) definitely not a "real" baroque era piece.

    You said it was an old Sports Illustrated blooper reel. Probably a canned library. Check the production houses - sorry, I don't know the names of the houses, but somebody here may.

    Just an idea, HTH.
    It's all about the music - really. I keep telling myself that...

    hmm. I've also tried to find it without much luck so far I'm afraid. The only thing I found out was that the video is called "NFL TV Follies". Don't know if that'll be of any help to someone else?

    Maybe try viewing the end-credits on the video and see if you can find producer listed or music supervisor. Then google their names for avenues of contacting them. They might know which canned library was used. You can also google nbc follies and see if you can find production crew that way if you don't have the entire video with credits.

    Good luck,
