Love reading the posts, I'll throw out a few suggestions.

Xiu Xiu "Fabulous Muscles"
"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"
Rupert Holmes "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)"

I'm also hoping that some speedster adopts Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car".

I totally forgot that Xiu Xiu existed, and how fey and annoying that guy's voice is. Definitely gonna use that and the Pina Colada Song (because it gives me an excuse to use a clip of Joel and the Bots discussing the song on MST3K).

Jimmy Buffet's Margaritville might be inappropriately laid back as would be just about anything by Snoop Dogg, no?

Man, I'd love a subtly altered broadcast of a game with these songs edited in.

Problem with that being they almost never show the walk up or have enough of the field mic'd so that you can hear the music... save for a closer (ugh, no pun intended) like Mariano, who they always show running out to the mound along to Enter Sandman.

That said, I'd really like someone to hack the cart machine so that when he came out "the Entertainer" would play the way it does on an ice cream truck.

Any song by the troika of Steve Albini-led bands. "Jordan, Minnesota," "Cables," and "Prayer to God," in particular.

Gary Glitter's song Rock & Roll Part 2 gets played all the time in major sports venues. And these folks are really committed to the idea that it's inappropriate as walk-up music, or anything else in connection with sporting events.

Gary Glitter isn't high art but last I checked there are a lot of musicians, artists, writers, etc. who did pretty bad things and I wouldn't want their work banned. I think I'd be upset if the only way I could hear Phil Spector's work was to dig into my own collection.
