Music for Only A Game

Music On Only A GameGuinea Pig by Parry Gripp (from Fuzzy Fuzzy Cute Cute: Volume 1, Parry Gripp, 2010)

Maybe you don’t like the song, but you have to admit it's hard to ignore a record titled Fuzzy Fuzzy Cute Cute. I can’t wait for all subsequent volumes.

You're Gonna Win That Ballgame, Uncle Sam by The National Pastime Orchestra (from A Century of Baseball in Song, Vol. 1, The Sporting News, 1989)

I've heard that The National Pastime Orchestra has been playing only pro football-related songs since about 1994.

Tramp by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas (from King & Queen, Atlantic, 1991)

Originally called the Otis and Carla Band, because Otis Redding and Carla Thomas is just too darn long.

Everything's Coming Up Roses by Tommy Sands (from Live from Las Vegas, Capitol, 2003)

This is from a live recording made at the Sands Hotel in 1960. So things were really coming up roses for Sands at his namesake hotel, the Sands.
