Now who sings these baseball game, or baseball related songs and you know you have heard them at one time or another over the years….
Centerfield…Put me in coach, I’m ready to play, put in coach I’m ready to play, I could be Centerfield….
The Cheap Seats….There’s nothing like the view, from “The Cheap Seats”…..
Talking Baseball(Willie, Mickey and The Duke)….We’re Talking Baseball, Willie, Mickey and The Duke….Say hey, Say hey, Say hey…..
Sweet Caroline…..Sweet Caroline, Bomp, Bomp, Bomp, Good times never felt so good, So Good, So Good, So Good……
We could throw in Take Me Out to the Ballgame/The Seventh-Inning Stretch song, but it has been sung by no one in particular, other than all of the fans around the nation, over the years…..
Maybe “God Bless America”, best-known and done when performed by Kate Smith…..Would you agree???
Then the “National Anthem/Star Spangled Banner”, maybe the best version I heard was from Sandy Patty, and have heard that Robert Goulet does a very good/mean version of the Star Spangled Banner, even though he is of French-Canadian ancestry…
Best version of God Bless America, from First National Bank Field, would be at least my choice of, Allison Moore….For the Star Spangled Banner, I have heard so many over the years, I could not pick a true favorite, but let me give one that does stand out, Jessica Mashburn….She does a super job on the Anthem, and she is a very talented singer, who often times does all sorts of different musical renditions and therefore has received the moniker, “All Mashed Up’….
There you have a topic of the day on Music Around the Baseball Ballparks….The National Anthem, God Bless America, I guess you could throw in the Village People and their work on the “YMCA” tune, and you used to alway have the Walk-Off song at the old War Memorial Stadium, back when the Yankees had a team playing here, and that would be Frank Sinatra and his tune of “New York, New York”…That was team part-owner John Horshok’s tune to send us all home, each night…”Start Spreading the News, I’m leaving today, I want to be a part of it, in old New York…I want to wake up in a city that doesn’t sleep, Be the King of the Hill, Top of the Heap….In Old New York, New York…..
