“A Game Goin’ On” by Nova Scotia’s Dave Gunning (co-written with David Francey) was the winner of Hockey Night in Canada’s Song Quest. It is fitting that a song from Gunning, a friend of the late Stompin’ Tom Connors, will be the next Canadian hockey song.
The song which was included on Gunning’s latest album, No More Pennies, will now be produced by Joel Plaskett and will be featured in an upcoming opening sequence of Hockey Night in Canada. Gunning will also perform at Hockey Day in Canada later this year.
There is no official video for the song (yet). Until then, here is a live performance of “A Game Goin’ On” from Saturday November 2012 at the Bow Valley Music Club in Calgary, Alberta (posted on You Tube by S. Chyz).
