    They played this song right before Game 3 and Game 4 tip off. Bought back good memories. I can still remember the PA announcer saying "Hakeeeeem The Dream Olaaaajuwaaaan"

    Awww man, I remember this song!!! I also liked that medley they used to play at games and sometimes it was on 104.1 KRBE. I called it "Rocket Jam." It had all those '90s dance songs. Gosh, I wish I could find that one, too.

    Siouxsie and The Banshee's made tons of money after they sued Cappella - Siouxsie still gets royalties anytime the Cappella song is played

    I don't remember much about the summit intros live at the game besides the Cappella song. Here's how I remember the intros from UPN/20 Vision.


    The audio quality is not very good so connect to loud headphones or stereo. Kinda reminds me of watching on a TV antenna instead of cable.

    The one thing that you guys will remember from those days was the excitement which this video provokes. At 34 I can still get pumped with this intro here. I duno what the Rockets have been doing for the past 15 years as far as intros go but it doesn't hold a candle to this one.
