    Red's Songs?

    Hi All,
    I was listening to "Tessie" (red sox's song) and I was thinking if the Reds have anything the equivilent?

    Maybe not official, but something which has come to represent the team over the years? Chant, song, cry? Just wondering..

    If not, we need something.

    "Hooray for the Cincinnati Reds" is the one that comes to mind...

    Co-opted from early 20th century Red Sox (Americans) lore, otherwise no one whistled it after WW1 until someone brought it up.

    I have spend an inordinate amount of my life searching for baseball songs and I've always had trouble with the Reds. There are an awful lot of great obscure songs out there for the most random teams, but off the top of my head I can't think of a single Reds one. I'd be interested to know this too.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    There are some decent songs on the CD that came out in 2003 (Blessid Union); every one was written especially for the Reds.

    ever hear the Reds version of "talkin' baseball"? "big Klu, big Klu"(instead of Say Hey)....can't remember what year that was without actually walking my lazy butt down the steps to look but I do know that I crack up everytime I hear the line..."this is the season for Hurdle and Driessen so let's play ball"...classic.

    Highly ironic to go back and watch the music video to Blessed Union of Soul's Field of Dreams. In that music video you see Aaron Boone lip-synching "I wanna be your hero ... "

    Well, only about seven months after appearing in that music video and telling you he wanted to be your hero, Boone did become a hero ... to millions of New York Yankees fans.

    Is that Blessid Union thing worth picking up? Some of the songs already mentioned would make a great compliation CD. I'm adding a room to my house that will be strictly a bar, this stuff would make for some great listening to before games

    anyone remember this jingle from an old radio commercial (had to be in the early 80's--I think it was for Marathon...not sure about that)

    Gee it's good to be back here again...
    With the Cincinnati Reds playin'----base-ball again.

    That's where my heart has always been...
    With the Cincinnati Reds playin'----base-ball again.

    corny, I know, but that song has been stuck in my head for years.

    I personally loved the Blessid Union CD. It's been the first thing I play in the morning on opening day since I got it. Some of it's kinda cheesy, but alot of it is rather good.
    Benzinger backing and calling! And the 1990 world championship series belongs to the Cincinnati Reds!

    I love it too!!! It's great, I agree that some of it is cheesy, but that's what makes it wonderful!!! My personal favorite song on the CD is "Go Home". I think that's what it's called. I've heard it played at the games some times when the starting pitcher of the opposing team gets taken out. It's sweet.

    "Go home...you're done...hit the showers. Thanks for the runs you bum! You got rocked. So just beat it. You got the hook, GO HOME!"

    ...Soto and Berenyi have the steam...
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Guess I am going to have to pick that one up.
