04. Because I Do by X
05. Ain't That Nothin' by Television
06. Stop Your Foolin by Nervous Norvus
07. DNA by The Kills

The accompanying photo was found in an antique store and I had to buy it. With that, a soundtrack to this mysterious bowling league was born. After all, you know these ladies would crush pins to Black Sabbath and X. Originally, N.W.A.'s "I Ain't tha 1" and Emmylou Harris' "Wheels" were included but the addition of the always enjoyable "Pumpin' for Jill" had a better (albeit, stranger) fit*. So, here you have a bizarre soundtrack to the Ryerson Ladies Bowling League. If you have anything to contribute in regards to the bowling league (especially, if they liked Nervous Norvus or like The Kills), please leave a comment as I'm curious about this origin of the picture and this league.
Support the art and the artists! Play it loud!
Get From the Land of Sky Blue Waters here.
*Note: In case you were curious about the placement of these tracks, "I Ain't tha 1" would came after "Stop Your Foolin" and "DNA" would have, then, closed the first half. "Wheels" would ended the second half and would have originally been after "The Mob Rules."
