Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 6/10/14 The Sopranos Signs Off
(The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)
It was seven years ago that ‘The Sopranos’ TV series came to close on HBO. The show began its dominating run on HBO in 1999, and let us into the life of New York Mob Boss Tony Soprano’s daily business and family life. In its six seasons, the show not only captivated viewers, racking up ratings point after ratings point, it also featured quite an eclectic blend of music for its soundtrack. Each week, a different song played as the closing credits rolled.
Tonight, we mark the anniversary of a classic show’s demise with three of those songs featured during the closing credits. We start out with the Rolling Stones classic “Undercover of the Night”, featured in Season Five’s second episode “Rat Pack“, followed by Pink Floyd’s “One of These Days” (Season 6, Episode 4 ‘Fleshy Part of the Thigh“) and, of course, the tune that took us out in the final episode, ‘Made In America‘ and saw a revival in popularity with America’s youth, Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’”. It’s tonight’s Six O’Clock Triple Shot on 94.9 WMMQ!
