For the past 6 months or so, Erik has had the arduous task of downloading ball-related songs for our trip. I must say, I never knew that there was a version of "Talkin' Baseball" for every team! (Talkin' Softball from the Simpsons is still the best version by far.)
It's fun to see how many teams have songs about them, which range from classics such as "Win Twins" and "Meet the Mets," to amateur songs like "OK Blue Jays," to even remixes by artists such as Chamillionaire and Bachman Turner Overdrive rewritten for their favorite teams. Even our Brewers have two songs! "Come See What's Brewin'" and "Let's Hear it for the Brew Crew" will definitely be amongst the most played on the trip. And of course, we have the quintessential "Centerfield" by John Fogerty.
We also have a few radio downloads, such as Abbott & Costello's "Who's on First?" and "Casey at the Bat," as narrated by James Earl Jones. The key contributions that we will be adding to this list in the next couple months will be batter + pitcher songs. Adam Dunn's songs "Sister Christian" and "In the Air Tonight" and Trevor Hoffman's song "Hell's Bells" are already on the playlist. Ricky Vaughn's "Wild Thing" and Prince Fielder's slow jam song will definitely be added shortly.
The cumulative playlist is already well over 90 minutes. Hopefully we can listen to only baseball related songs and baseball broadcasts for the entire trip!
