Five Best Miami Sports Team Songs

Another season passed, and another Super Bowl is coming our way. Unfortunately, for the 31st year in a row, there will be no Miami Dolphins in the big game. But don't worry, Miami sports fans; while the quality on the field (or court or ice) hasn't always been first-rate in South Florida, the quality of the music soundtracking the games generally is. Here are the top five Miami sports team songs.  

5. "The Heat Is On"
Whatever you think of the Eagles, Glenn Frey's passing was a sad moment for Miami Heat fans. "The Heat Is On" was originally recorded for the Eddie Murphy movie Beverly Hills Cop, but due to the word "Heat" in its title has been a steady part of Heat games from the team's inception in 1988. Nary a quarter passes without the Heat dancers moving or the mascot Burnie throwing T-shirts to the song. 

4. "Miami U How- Dee-Do"
Also known as the Miami Hurricanes Fight Song, this has been a staple at Hurricanes games through all five of their football national championships. Their marching band, the Band of the Hour, proudly played this for decades at the Orange Bowl and took it up the turnpike to their current home in Miami Gardens.

3. "Seven Nation Army"
Its presence made you wonder who on the Miami Heat was a White Stripes fan, but somehow this song became the theme for the Heat's "Big Three" years. When ESPN makes a documentary about when LeBron James was a member of the Heat, there will be countless scenes where you hear Miami fans chanting "O-o-o-o-o-ohhhh O-o-o-o-ohhhhh" and you will get goosebumps.

2. "Can You Feel the Heat (Down in your Soul)"
Derek "Bigg D" Baker produced songs by Pitbull, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Jay Z, Jennifer Lopez, and Jamie Foxx, but having this Caribbean-flavored ditty adopted as the official team song of the Miami Heat in 1996 has to be a career highlight for the South Florida native.  

1. "Miami Dolphins Fight Song"
The sonic equivalent of joy for anyone who grew up in South Florida. Written by Lee Ofman during the 1972 perfect season, it is bubblegum pop at its purest that will never leave your head, nor ever allow a frown. Of the many questionable moves since Stephen Ross bought the Miami Dolphins — from drafting Ryan Tannehill to having a general manager ask a player if his mother was a prostitute — his worst idea was attempting to phase out this song being played at games and replacing it with Jimmy Buffett's "Fins."
