"Curl", an anthem for the ice based Olympic sport is a song on Jonathan Coulton's fifth album, Thing a Week Two.

History[edit]

"Curl" was released as the twentieth Thing a Week on February 10th, 2006.

Live appearance[edit]

"Curl" is played occasionally at Jonathan Coulton concerts, usually in colder cities (especially in Minnesota, and a required song for Canadian setlists) where it's more likely there are actually curlers in the audience. When performing with Paul and Storm, they usually accompany Jonathan with full backing vocals.

Trivia[edit]

  • Curling has been an Olympic sport since the 1998 Winter Olympics. Because it was the first time many Americans were seeing the sport, it enjoyed a brief spurt in popularity.
