    Paint the town red

    The new official song of the Cincinnati Reds.

    http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/news/...=.jsp&c_id=cin

    Link to the song:

    http://www.myspace.com/thehotcakesmusic

    It's actually not too bad. I like the voice a lot. It isn't a rock anthem, but sounds like a great song to do highlights to.

    "Next time the cops come, we're going to run right towards them." That's the first line of the song the Reds' chose to be the song for their 2009 ad campaign? Odd choice for a baseball team.

    Are those the same people who did the Gold Star Jingles?

    I'm not watching until I have to.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    No, this is a new band out of New York.

    I like them.

    It came down to two songs. It was either this or Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.

    What about the big Annie number, 'Tomorrow'? Seems appropriate...

    I thought "Send in the clowns" was our theme song?
    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    I was thinking the same thing. Might be expecting some riots, you think?

    Get ready for a tear-jerking video montage at the end of the year. That's definitely different than what I thought it would be.

    Songs choose the team, not the other way around.

    I think it was a great marketing ploy by the band, and it's good pub for the Reds helping "the little guys" out.

    And the song really isn't bad. I like it a lot.

    The Reds need to partner with Blessed Union of Souls again.

    That was pure bliss.

    Part of my post was sarcastic...

    ... although I did enjoy that album they put out with the Reds called "Play Ball", and the music videos that went with...
