If a cricketer's career was a tune...

I guess
Housemartins - Happy Hour
would go well for
Jesse Ryder

Someone like Graham Gooch or Jack Hobbs, who just kept going, would go well with Won't Let The Sun Go Down On Me by Nik Kershaw.

Either David Gower or John Morris in 1990/91 might have done well to take Joan Armatrading's advice to Drop The Pilot.

I forget which high-profile game it was where the floodlights suddenly lost power (has happened quite a few times in lower-profile games but I'm sure it also happened in a ODI sometime) but Black Night by Deep Purple would always come to mind there.

BTW, one of the best non-cricket songs for the game of cricket in general is Summer In The City by Lovin' Spoonful.
