      Thanks, I'd definetely like a track list, so that I can make something similar.

      BTW this is off-topic, but when do players report to ST? I think I remember hearing February 15, then games start in March... Is that true?

        I'd put "New England" by Jonathan Richman in there for the same reason. I've never heard his Red Sox specific song. I did see him live back in Chicago years ago with just a drummer for backup and he brought the house down.

          I used to work in a record store. The day after the Sox won the WS I was the first one to open the store. Needless to say I was BLARING Boston's "More than a Feeling." I'm not even a huge classic rock fan, but that song, after waiting my whole life for a WST, gave me goosebumps.

            Losing

            --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

            By Pondering Judd

            Listen here:

            http://cdbaby.com/cd/ponderingjudd2

            A New England band

            The pain of last night's loss won't wash away
            Please tell me when will this losing ever end
            It chased me into bed, and it filled my dreams with dread
            But they say you're only as good as your next game

            In Baltimore, it began to rain
            And we had to live with losing one more day
            Hotel room without a window Playing cards and drinking Bushmills
            Couldn't chase that one bad inning from our heads

            From here to Cleveland to Chicago New York City's dark and hollow
            When you're standing without pinstripes on your grays

            At 4:15, we got off the train
            The ink was barely dry upon the page we slept a while in the bunker
            Chased the traffic down to Kenmore and we put away our losing once again

            Around the cage you sensed my urgency
            It was 7:00 by the time we took the field
            With number one upon and hill and October at our heels
            We took two of three from Oakland here at home

            From here to Cleveland to Chicago New York City's dark and hollow
            When your standing without pinstripes on your grays


            This song is just an awesome song...I mean it rocks...and it is about
            my Boston Red Sox and how they have always lost (sans 2004).


            From here to Cleveland to Chicago New York City's dark and hollow
            When you're standing without pinstripes on your grays

            Losing in Cleveland, then Chicago only to get beat up by the New York Yankees (pinstrips)
            at NY (on your grays..away unifroms)


            At 4:15, we got off the train
            The ink was barely dry upon the page we slept a while in the bunker
            Chased the traffic down to Kenmore and we put away our losing once again

            The team just get off the train the press is crucifing them...(Boston Globe...Herald).
            They hibernate in the bunker and have
            to chase the traffic down to Kenmore Square (where the famous Citgo sign is)

            With number one upon and hill and October at our heels

            That would be Lonborg, Tiant, Clemens, Pedro, Schilling...and for most years October never happend.

              Ive got one called "The Red Sox Song" that I cant find the name of the artist for. It goes like... "And as I walk on down the street, I see those Fenway lights, in the park and up to my seat, i'm so excited i'm at the game tonight!' Then something like 'Cause its the Red Sox year, im talking Red Sox here today... Cause its the red sox year, they're going all the way" If anyone knows who sings this, please let me know.

              Then there's a free-style done by Akrobatik that pretty much makes fun of players like Offerman and Garciaparra, but its funny nevertheless...

              I also remember one where he talks about going to the game wearing his Garciaparra shirt and watching Pedro beat the Yanks... but that was on my old computer and I cant find it anymore..

              So if you know the names of these songs or any other red sox related ones let me know! Thanks.

              p.s. I think Im going to put a couple of Bronson's song on there too come to think of it.
              Evan, did you ever get a CD together? I'm interested to hear a track list.

                Not sure how many of you are fans of indie, lo-fi pop, but Boston native, Desmond Reed wrote a song about each of the players in the Red Sox line-up (post-Manny). You can listen to the whole thing here:

                http://www.desmondreedmusic.com/lineup/

                It's pretty entertaining and you can listen to the whole thing in about 10 minutes. My personal favorites:"Lowell", "Bay" and the bonus track "Lugo".

                  I was just thinking about these songs the other day. I came on here this morning to see if the link I posted for these songs still worked. It did not, but I did find my three favorite songs on YouTube. Did anyone in the Boston area ever see a hard copy version of this? I think it was called "Lineup" by Desmond Reed. I'm heading over to MySpace to see if this guy might still have these tracks available.

                    #7? If you're correlating it to when it gets played at Fenway, it would be #8 (song gets played in middle of the 8th).
