A Game Going ON by Dave Gunning and David Francey wins Song Quest

CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada ran a contest in a search of “Canada’s next great hockey song” and the winner is “A Game Going ON” written by David Francey and Dave Gunning.  Dave’s wonderful recording of the song can be heard at CBC.ca

“The original idea for this song came from David Francey and he asked me to co-write it with him,” Gunning wrote.  “Last year during the NHL lockout we finished the song. I was certainly frustrated along with so many other hockey fans and felt it was good timing to release a song that encapsulated the old fashioned love of the game, the real reason why so many of us play hockey either professionally or for fun.”
