Album: Eye in the Sky (1982)
  • songfacts ®
  • This song has become widely used at sporting events, particularly as opening-lineup themes for basketball teams. It was popularized by the Chicago Bulls, who used it for their starting lineup introductions for many of their dynasty years during the '90s, when Michael Jordan was with the team. When Parsons was told by an American friend that his song was being used as intro music for Michael Jordan, Parsons replied, "Who's Michael Jordan." He is not a sports fan. >>

  • Sirius is a bright star in the night sky. It's also the name of a satellite radio service. When they launched, they were called "CD Radio," but "CD" is a dated concept that does not evoke the vast possibilities of "Sirius."
  • This instrumental was used as a background music in the commercial for the NBA 2K11 video game shown over the fall of 2010.
