Music On Only A Game

Music On Only A GameGeography by Thao Nguyen (from We Brave Bee Stings and All, Kill Rock Stars, 2008) Brave, brave Thao. And all.

Anthem FC Barcelona by Coral Sant-Jordi (from El Cant de la Senyera, Picap, 2011)

Bill tears up every time he hears this. Which is on his morning commute, when he gets to the office, his evening commute, when he gets home, weekends, vacations, naps…

Astrodome by Home Groan (from Astrodome, Home Groan, 2008)

I think they used to sing this one in the late innings of Astros home games, the way Fenway fans sing I'm Shipping Up to Boston or Sweet Caroline.

Whoops by MKB (from On Another Note EP, WEA/Warner, 2004)

Which is it? MKB or mkB or MKb or MkB or mKb or mkb or…ahhh, never mind.

There Used to Be a Ballpark by Frank Sinatra (from Ol' Blue Eyes is Back, Warner, 1990)

Oh, wait…this is about Ebbetts Field?
