    Re: Horrible Song

    Today I learned there's a singer named Gary Glitter and he's a pedophile. I would think the latter would automatically be assumed based on the former.

    Honestly, I never heard of him before this thread.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    They've been playing a 115 year-old song during the seventh inning stretch.

    Re: Horrible Song

    I remember a few years back they had a tribute to the first night game or something, and they didn't use any electronics (with some slight exceptions) until the 7th inning or so. They only used the organ if I remember right.

    It was a wonderful change.

    I'll agree the Gary Glitter song is stupid as are most of the other junk they do. I also dislike the new Reds Race. Bring back the pac-man style race!

    Had to look that one up!

    How 'bout Hayseed Dixie? Maybe their version of Ace of Spades for a montage on the video board of the starting pitchers?

    That makes me wonder if it might be a favorite of Bob Castellini's.

    "Phil, I was thinking that during games we should play this song I used to have on 8-track tape by a fellow named Gary Glitter. See if you can find it. I'm thinking we sprinkle that one in every couple of at-bats and it'll really get everyone riled up."

    Re: Horrible Song

    I like "Rock and Roll Part 2." It's been wildly overplayed at sporting events, but it's got the primal rock vibe that caught on in the late '60s and early '70s. "Soulfinger" "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye," "Low Rider," and anything by Sly and the Family Stone fit into the same category. They'd find a groove and wear it out.

    Modern Song snippet they need to play is Let's Go by Calvin Harris, IMO

    I hate this song so much, I'd actually be willing to write a letter. Anyone know where I'd send such a thing?

    The in-game music is handled by a rotating group of people (I think 3 or 4) who alternate the job of DJ on a series-by-series basis. You could probably get their names and contact them directly via e-mail or twitter.

    Or, you could try Phil Castellini -- I've heard he's actually pretty responsive to fan concerns about the ballpark experience if something is truly bothering you.

    I wish they'd play "Another One Bites The Dust" occasionally.
