Jock Jams: Capital Edition

"[Next Sunday], the most spectacular state-of-the-art ballpark in Major League baseball opens its doors for its inaugural season. Your all-new Nationals Park combines the best features of other acclaimed MLB ballparks with an architectural flavor unique to DC, creating an experience unlike any other!"


Help the Washington Nationals select the songs to be played for:

7th Inning Stretch Song
Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations
The Gambler by Kenny Rogers
Rock Me Gently by Andy Kim
September by Earth Wind and Fire
Shout by Otis Day And The Knights
Twist And Shout by The Beatles
YMCA by the Village People
You Gotta Have Heart by Damn Yankees The Musical

Home Run Song
Because We Can by Fatboy Slim
Bustin Loose by Chuck Brown
Kernkraft 400 by Zombie Nation
Off We Go (Air Force Theme) by Robert Crawford
Song 2 (Woo Hoo) by Blur

Victory Song
Beautiful Day by U2
Celebration by Kool And The Gang
Dancing In The Streets by Martha Reeves and the Vandelas
How Do You Like Me Now by Toby Keith
Rock and Roll Part 2 by Gary Glitter

Firstly, these songs are pretty terrible options. So the best they could come up with are "Twist and Shout", "YMCA", "Song 2", and "Celebration". You've got to be kidding me. Talk about lowest common denominator. Are there any songs left on the Jock Jams CD that aren't listed here?

The only song on this list that I would like to see selected is "Bustin Loose" by DC's own Chuck Brown, the legendary originator of Go-Go music. This is the song that inspired Nelly's "Hot in Here." Check it out here [Don't be afraid...you know you want to dance to it. Make it funky Chuck]
