Fun and Games is a 1979 album recorded by the American flugelhorn player Chuck Mangione, who released it on the A&M Records label. It included the song "Give It All You Got", which ABC Sports used for the 1980 Winter Olympics, as well as a slower version of that song, "Give It All You Got, But Slowly". The latter was also used during the 80's as sign-off music for many American television stations.
