NBC in tune with football

Pink, Williams signs for 'Sunday'

NEW YORK — “NBC Sunday Night Football” has two unlikely new partners: composer and music director John Williams and recording artist Pink.

Williams has composed the theme music for “NBC Sunday Night Football” and the net’s “Football Night in America” studio show. It will be used as the skein’s opening and throughout the broadcasts.

Williams previously worked with NBC Sports on the net’s theme music for the Olympic Games.

Pink collaborated with the net to create “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night,” the opening song for “NBC Sunday Night Football.”

“Waiting” is set to the Joan Jett song “I Hate Myself for Loving You.” A special version of the song with new lyrics will air Sept. 7, when the NFL season kicks off on NBC with the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Miami Dolphins.

The first Sunday season broadcast is Sept. 10, featuring the Indianapolis Colts vs. the New York Giants.
