Walk Up Song Update: Final Update

Based on all the suggestions and a little flipping around. 

Aaron Judge "Big Bad John" - Jimmy Dean / Honorable Mention "The Jolly Green Giant" by the Kingsman 

Anthony Rizzo  "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" - Pat Benatar

Giancarlo Stanton "All Or Nothing At All", Frank Sinatra

Josh Donaldson “Money For Nothing” - Dire Straits

Aaron Hicks "It's Over", Roy Orbison / Honorable Mention "Seasons in The Sun"   - Terry Jacks

Gleyber Torres "Winkin'Blinkin' and Nod" The Doobie Brothers 

Harrison Bader "These Boots Are Made For Walking" Nancy Sinatra.

Oswald Peraza "Can't You Hear Me Knockin'", Rolling Stones

Oswaldo Cabrera "I'm your Handyman" by either Jimmy Jones or James Taylor

DJ LeMahieu "Hurt" Johnny Cash

Jose Trevino "I am a Rock"  Simon & Garfunkel

Kyle Higashioka "Catch Me Now I'm Falling" The Kinks

IKF "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" Buddy Holly 


Pitchers don’t get walk up songs but they do get music when they enter the field from the bullpen so... 

Gerrit Cole "Sweet Sticky Thing - Ohio Players was a great suggestion. 

As was Nestor Cortes "Fool on the Hill" and Luis Severino - "I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down" - Elvis Costello 

Of course there's always “Send in the Clowns” but Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Heaney are gone.  

Speaking of gone...  Gary Sanchez "All Things Must Pass" George Harrison

Love all these, but how about...

Gleyber—"She Drives Me Crazy," by the Fine Young Cannibals.

Hicks—"Overs," by Simon and Garfunkel ("Why don't we stop fooling ourselves?/ The game is over, over, over/ No good times, no bad times/ There's no times at all/ Just the New York Times..." And finishing: "But each time/ I try on/ The thought of leaving you/ I stop/ And think it over.")

Not the topic but 1996 home opener is on YES Yankees Classics right now. Pettite pitching, Sterling calling. Gerald Williams in left (forgot he was good).

Gotta remember that it's one 20 second clip, not the entire song.

On that note, I do like BIG JOHN.

"With all of his strength he gave a mighty shove
"Then a miner yelled out, "There's a light up above!"
"And 20 men scrambled from a would-be grave
"Now there's only one left down there to save..."

For DJ, you *could* consider "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life"

13bit said...

For Gleyber, you could also do "Start Me Up" by the Stones, or possibly "Shattered," depending on what day of the week it is.

Bader - "Sympathy For the Devil"

or Jimi's "Manic Depression"

Doug K. said...

These are good.

How about for Bader - These Boots Are Made For Walking.

HoraceClarke66 said...

Actually, either Oswald or Oswaldo should get "Sympathy For the Devil" for that reference to the Kennedy assassinations.

Gleyber song..."End Of The Line" by The Travelling Wilburys.

Both Oswalds or any prospect..."It Don't Come Easy" by Ringo

Harrison Bader...Any song penned by George Harrison, of course. or "Kansas City" by Wilburt Harrison.

DJ...."I'm your Handyman" by either Jimmy Jones or James Taylor

Both Trevino and Higgy..."Catch us If You Can" by the Dave Clark 5

IKF...."PYT" by Michael Jackson

Speaking of Harrison, too bad Gary Sanchez wasn't still on the team because the obvious song for him would be "All Things Must Pass".

13bit said...

And yes, I am an old Stones freak, but can we consider "(I Can't Get no) Satisfaction" for someone?

And just randomly: Whipping Post, "The End" by the Doors or the immortal Buddy Holly's "It Doesn't Matter Anymore"

Doug K. said...

Carl - All things must pass -- LOL

Except his name is not John.
I guess I’m just a crank. Brown-eyed Handsome Man is much better IMO

DJ Lemahieu--"Hurt" by Johnny Cash

Harrison Bader--"Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor (On the Bedpost Overnight?)" by Lonnie Donegan
