Help a LOOGY Out


It looks like Tim Byrdak is looking for entrance music when he trots out of the bullpen, and he’s willing to let readers decide for him. First, we’ll have to decide what we’re voting for, or it’s likely that TedQuarter’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” lark will win. And do we want that? Well, maybe we do.

But let’s talk it over first.

Some suggestions, for your perusal:

The LOOGY Clap by Lazy Mary
Ghetto Ways by Scissors for Lefty
I Just Can’t Live that Fast Anymore by Lefty Frizell
Half a Man, Lefty & Pancho by Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson
Sling Shot Part Two by Lefties Soul Connection

Or we could do something not-so-lefty, and just plain badass:

I Don’t Want To Be A Player No More, Big Pun
This Modern Love, Bloc Party
Mistress Mabel, The Fratellis
Hurricane, Jamie LIdell
Daft Punk Is Playing At My House, LCD Soundsystem
*The Sweat Descends, Les Savy Fav
Fire On the Bayou, The Funky Meters
Electric Feel, MGMT
Wanna Be Startin Somethin, Michael Jackson
Young Folks, Peter Bjorn and John
Coming in Hot, Peter Tosh
Simon Says, Pharoahe Monch
*Loud Pipes, Ratatat
2 More Dead, RJD2
*Hash Pipe, Weezer

*Mine if I as a player. I can’t decide.

    Love the Bloc Party track, but what about that English accent in the vocals? A bit much for America’s pastime? That’s not cricket, mate!

    The Joker and the Thief by Wolfmother.

    It got some play in “The Hangover”, but more importantly, it gets me more fired up than any other song. In fact, it will be my entrance music when I’m closer for the Orioles. Or first baseman… either way.

    What about the final chorus to ‘The Cave’ by Mumford and Sons? Upbeat, and the lyrics fit, albeit a little strangely.

    Why not one of the greatest intro music selections of all time?

    “I Am a Real American” – Rick Derringer, complete with pointing to the crowd and the ear gestures.

    I vote for the first movement of Beethoven’s third symphony, particularly somewhere around the six-minute mark.

    Daft Punk is Playing at My House and Young Folks are the best songs on that list, but I don’t know how well they fit

    Electric Feel would be a good one. Anything by the band Left Lane Cruiser would be fun.

    1. The Big Pun song is called “Still Not A Player”.
    2. The correct answer is anything from The Dillinger Escape Plan, preferably “Good Neighbor”.

    Method Man’s “Bring the Pain” (I come to bring the pain~).

    This would be my at-bat music if I were ever good enough to get promoted out of the local Baptist softball leauges (I’m not joking. Something tells me they don’t like the Wu).
