    Question: How do all of us know you're a huge music buff?

    Seems things have changed...

    Hey Annie, I seem to remember what your reaction was when I told you about DKM getting involved with the Red Sox and recording Tessie. I'd quote it here, but that IM conversation is saved elsewhere. Now you're quoting lyrics and talking about the song. Does this mean your taste in music has changed?

    Yup you are right. Sweet Caroline (instead of Valentine) is sung by Neil Diamond.

    I'd be a fan of including more Dropkick Murphys. "For Boston" is a tune that comes to mind. And you have to include "i'm Shipping Up to Boston" for the postgame Papelbon dances.

    Here are the DM's lyrics:

    Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
    Tessie is the tune they always sung
    Tessie echoed April through October nights
    After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
    Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
    Tessie is a maiden with a love
    She doesn't know the meaning of her sight
    She's got a comment full of love
    And sometimes when the game is on the line
    Tessie always carried them away
    Up the road from third base to Huntington
    The boys will always sing and sway

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only only only

    The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
    They found their seats had all been sold
    McGreevey led the charge into the park
    Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
    The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
    Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
    Up from third base to Huntington
    They'd sing another victory song

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only only only

    The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
    Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
    Up from third base to Huntington
    They'd sing another victory song

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Boston, you are the only only only
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Red Sox, you are the only only only

    I can only find the lyrics to the chorus of the original Tessie, but I have heard the whole thing. The Dropkick Murphys adapted some of the original lyrics into their song about the song. Here's the chorus of the old one:

    Tessie, you make me feel so badly
    Why don’t you turn around
    Tessie you know I love you madly
    Babe, my heart weighs about a pound
    Don’t blame me if I ever doubt you.
    You know I couldn’t live without you
    Tessie, you are my only, only, only.


    And the chorus of DM's version:

    "Tessie," "Nuff Ced" McGreevy shouted,
    "We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only, only, only."


    Of course, as the song goes on, "Tessie, you are the only, only, only" becomes "Boston, you are the only..." and then "Red Sox, you are the only..."

    There are some other lines in the original about a "maiden with sparkling eyes", lyrics again reflected in the new version.

    The original "Tessie" was popular at the turn of the last century, and the Boston fans tweaked it to heckle Honus Wagner..."Tessie you know I love you madly" became "Honus why do hit so badly". I don't think that the DMs really used any of the original lyric.

    started a topic Boston Red Sox Music

    Boston Red Sox Music

    Alright my friends. As most of you know I am a huge music buff. Well I am looking for some help on this one. I want to make an Essential Red Sox Music CD. I need to know from you the fans though... what are the essential songs? I will admit i am looking for stuff they play at games, any music that just screams Boston, or Red Sox. Someone on this sight previously was trying to build a Cd, but I don't think they ever finished it. This is something I want to have done in a few weeks time if I can get enough music to fill a CD if not maybe even more. Once I have compiled all the data I will go through and create the CD/CD's and will post the tracklist/tracklist's which ever it may be
