    Ken Griffey Jr's Entrance Music

    I haven't been to a game yet this year, but my boss is an idiot and he love's Jr's entrance music but he can't remember what it is. Can anyone tell me what song they use?

    He may have multiple songs, but I know one is "Ridin" by Chamillionaire.

    He does have multiple songs. I can't remember the first one I heard, but Ridin played during his second AB and was his batting song most of last year.

    I really like Dunn's selection this year: the chorus of Sister Christian and the part where the drums come in on "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins.

    This is from Lance McCalister's blog

    Anyone notice the "at-bat" song that Jr has used this season?
    I did not....but this was pointed out by listener Joe Y.
    The song is by a female British rapper named Lady Sovereign.
    The song is called "Love me or Hate me" and the chorus
    goes (the part played at GABP):
    Love me or hate me
    It's still an obsession
    Love me or hate me
    That is the question
    If you love me than...
    Thank you
    And if you hate me than
    _____ you (of course no F-bomb in the edited version)

    Well that's a pretty good selection for GABP.

    Dunn comes up to "Sister Christian" by Night Ranger as well I'm pretty sure

    Dunn comes out to the following three songs (or at least he did during the last homestand) --

    Sister Christian
    Jukebox Hero
    Big Shot

    I took an informal poll in the stands and we all agreed that someone should punk Ryan Freel and have "My Ding-A-Ling" play for an AB sometime.

    Dunn played Big Shot last year too. I always liked that selection.


    Because you had to be a big shot, didn't cha
    You had to open up your mouth
    You had to be a big shot, didn't cha
    All your friends were so knocked out
    You had to have the last word, last night
    You know what everything's about
    You had to have a white hot spotlight
    You had to be a big shot last night
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    You are of course right.... I never understood that song until I looked up the lyrics just now. I always heard "Motor-head" when it says "I'm Motoring"

    Makes a lot more sense now.

    The Phil Collins bit is new this year. I heard it Saturday when I was at the game.

    I like Javy's music. Switch by Will Smith.
    "My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton

    That's not the part that is played.
