Red Dog Music’s Top Five: Super Bowl Half-time shows

Prince Half TimeIt’s that time of the year again, and tonight’s game is going to have to go some to give us the joy (or despair) – but massive emotional ups-and-downs either way – of last year’s Patriots vs Falcons game. Wow.

While Brady and Belichick are going for another jewel to add to the Pat’s dynasty, and the Eagles try to reverse the result from 2004, the game, of course, is a mere sideshow to the quarter of an hour in the middle.
