How many songs celebrate bowling?


    United States

    TheBlueFlamesBowlingUSACover.jpg When Chris Richardson went to went duckpin bowling at White Oak Lanes in Silver Spring, Md., United States, last weekend and had such a good time doing so he thought to himself, "How many songs celebrate bowling?"

    Richardson, who calls himself a certified music freak, realized what a great idea it was for a piece for his pop music history blog, Zero to 180.

    He started poking around on the web thinking someone surely has already pulled together a righteous list of songs about bowling, but amazingly … no one had! Until now.

    "Ten-Pin Pop" is an original piece of music research that Richardson has posted on his blog featuring a list of 25 bowling-related tunes. 18 of those songs, who were released from 1957 to 2012, are linked to streaming audio.
