I was going to say “vote for Bran,” but he already struck out


 

Nine prominent bands (including REO Speedwagon!) competed in ESPN’s contest to find the best version of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” on the occasion of that venerable tune’s 100th anniversary. Three survive. Winner to be revealed next week. Have a listen.

This is fun. The CBC could do this with versions of the Hockey Night theme….Oops! No they couldn’t.

CERTAIN-SONGS-THEY-GET-SCRATCHED-INTO-OUR-SOULSDATE: In the comments, Db unearths The Hold Steady’s definitive version.

  1. Oh that is SO hip. It sounds like they WROTE the thing. It’s better than half of their new album.

  2. Dude, half their new album could suck (it doesn’t) and it wouldn’t matter because “Constructive Summer” and “Sequestered in Memphis” are so awesome. I assume you’ll be downing double-whiskey-coke-no-ice nice time they roll through Ottawa.

  3. Oh! This post isn’t an interview with William Shatner? I’ll go away then.
