Well, looks like negotiations have fallen through - Hockey Night in Canada will need a new theme song.
I’d also like to congratulate the copyright holder of the song - you’ve strangled the golden goose. That takes either a lot of guts or a lot of stupidity.
Who else would even TOUCH the Hockey Night in Canada song? Every time you play it, people will think of CBC! Good job CBC - you made the song famous; let the copyright holder keep their worthless piece of iconic music.
Besides the history channel or CBC wanting to use it in a “History of Canadian Hockey” segment 10 years down the road, I don’t see who’d want it.
EDIT: Ah… looks like CTV wanted it. Well… there you go.
