Song suggestions for our baseball segment

Kerri solicited your favorite women-themed songs for our show today about women and the economy — those picks here.

But I, too, sought some advice for songs. We had a baseball theme at the end of the 9:00 hour, which included this segment on a possible new anthem for the Twins, so I asked my Tweeps to submit their favorite baseball-themed songs that weren’t ‘Centerfield’ by John Fogerty or ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame.’

Here were some of the submitted selections:

“It’s a Beautiful Day for a Ballgame” (we used this song)

“Paradise by the Dashboard Light” by Meat Loaf

“Joe Dimaggio Done It Again” by Billy Bragg

“You Gotta Have Heart” (from Damn Yankees)

“Don’t Call them Twinkies”

    To hell with beloved tradition.

    I’m gonna rip off a drunken soccer dirge and just change a few words to fit the Twins.

    Too bad I’m not an artist or a public radio reporter might decide it’s a creative idea and publicize it.

    What? It’s already happened? Never mind.
