I've loved music and hockey all my life. Now I get both at the same time with this CD. Thanks to Warren Zevon. The song makes me want to grab a hockey stick and "HIT SOMEBODY". A must have for fans of ole time hockey. Better than the song by Dave "The Hammer" Schultz who sang "Baby, How long will you keep me in the PENALTY BOX".

Zevon is a great storyteller: ... Zevon has an inimitable sense of humor: ... With "Hit Somebody" he combines these two elements better than in any other song I can think of. Some people find the Letterman vocals annoying, but it would take a lot more than that to wreck this song. ...

One of my great regrets will be failing to see a live Warren Zevon performance. But I've got to tell you, listening to this recording of "Hit Somebody" almost makes up for it. There's not much to add to what others have written except that you should be prepared for the heavenly image at the end of the song. Zevon's sheer genius demonstrated once again. He's going out at the top of his game.

Warren Zevon and Mitch Albom collaborated to write the greatest hockey song of all time. Warren is ably backed up by David Letterman's band, including Paul Shaffer on Hammond B-3 organ. It's the story of Buddy, a Canadian farm boy who dreamed of being an NHL superstar. He wasn't very good at skating or scoring goals but, being a big bruiser, he was good at beating people up. What else could he do but, as David Letterman himself says in the song, "Hit Somebody!" He makes an NHL team as a goon, winning fights and racking up penalty minutes. In his last game, he's hit from behind as he shoots the puck. Just before he passes out he sees the red light above the net light up, realizing he's finally scored a goal. In a perfect world, this song would have been a big hit. The CD single also includes a second song, "For My Next Trick, I'll Need A Volunteer" from the album "Life'll Kill Ya." It's the story of a third-rate magician and his lonely life on the road. "I can make love disappear. For my next trick, I'll need a volunteer." Only Warren Zevon can perfectly capture the essence of these quirky characters in the space of one song.

I'm a big fan of Mitch Albom's work, and this latest collaboration with Warren Zevon was no exception. "Hit Somebody" is a great song, and we play it at the local hockey games all the time. A great tune to have around the rink.
