Hate that Dirty Water...



I don't know if you a clip of Bronson Arroyo's video for his cover of Dirty Water(the Sux unofficial theme song, they play it every time they win). If you've never heard it here's the karaoke version of it. It's annoying as the town it celebrates. And the group (the Standells) that originally sings it...isn't even from the area!! They're from California! They have an obscure West Coast 60's garage band when they win. We have Sinatra. Sounds fair.

Needless to say, the song sucks and so does Arroyo's version. They also sing Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" at games as well. I've heard it's a bar favorite for some reason. Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off", I understand...but Neil Diamond? Anyway, they've managed to ruin that song as well. If they start singing the Stones or Stevie Wonder...guess what's coming to Third World Nation.....

i think an entire ballpark singing along to sweet caroline is kinda fruity; they build up the hard nosed dirtdog image and the place is rocking to.... neil diamond?

then again, i think anything but take me out to the ballgame is highly unnecessary, so... yes, cotton eyed joe and ymca, i'm looking at you.

I hate YMCA and Cotton Eye Joe...with a passion.

Sinatra's NY, NY and Take Me Out...that's it.

Dirty Water is fine for the infidels, because it's actually a pretty clever song about the city of Boston. Sweet Caroline is very, very weak....
