  • What is this song?

    There is a song that I keep hearing at ballparks and I like it, but I don't know what it's called or where I can find it. All I do know is this:

    - It's in 6/8 time

    - In the key of E major

    - Makes very heavy use of accordions

    They usually play it when they're trying to rally the crowd in some fashion. It's a hard-driving rock song type thing. With accordions.

    Anyone know what song I'm talking about? I don't know what it's called so I can't search YT for a sample or anything like that.
    It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shakes, the shakes become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

          No.

          The one I mean, is a more hard rock song.

          And is in 6/8 time, in E major.

            Lyrics???

            Chelsea Dagger is a good song.

              The song I'm thinking of, is apparently an instrumental (I've never heard lyrics to it - then again, they don't play the complete song during games anyway).

                    I don't know anything about music so have no clue about the time and key, but is there a chance it's the opening to "Shipping Up To Boston" by the Dropkick Murphys?
                    It's the only rock tune I can think of with accordions, and we hear it at Fenway all the time (of course).

                    EDIT - just remembered that the Pogues had an accordion player, but can't imagine what song of theirs you might hear now.

                      What about that song "Tessie" but I cant see any other stadium playing that except for Boston.

                        They all play "Sweet Caroline", don't they?

                        Bear in mind, we don't know the point of orgin for the song.

                          Never heard sweet Caroline at an Indians game, was one of the things I was looking forward to 1st time I went to Fenway. Can't remember hearing it at any other ballpark either

                            Yes, that's the one.

                              Thats the song from the movie "The Departed" I'm surprised they play that any place except Boston.
