  • Why oh why do they do it?

    Why does every radio station, TV station, and other such entities feel that they have to have some sort of "theme song" for the Cardinals? Just heard the Grethen Wilson version of RedBird Fever sung to the tune of Redneck Woman on channel 5. That's at least the 3rd or 4th one of these that I've heard today. Why do they feel the need to do this. It's just plain silly and ridiculous.

      I'd love to write one of those songs and record it.... imagine all the money to be made on trite shit like that!

      In fact, I'm going to start writing a Cardinals World Series tune, so that when they win it, I can shop it to all the local TV stations.

              I saw the thing about the Gretchen Wilson song right around mid-season...

              Doesn't really make it any better, but it wasn't something they threw together at the last minute for the playoffs...

                    you just can't improve on the original.

                    CELEBRATION!

                    I need to get that song on my home computer so I can play it five times today. Does anyone have it and could maybe send it to me?

                    It's becoming a tradition for me to play it a minimum of 5 times on gameday.

                      You mean Celebration by Kool and the Gang? Is there a Cardinals version of that song now too? If so, don't think I've heard it yet.

                        The Kool and the Gang version is the only one I recognize. Maybe I will call work and walk them through how to attach something to an email and have them send it.

                            I had them send it and now I have it on loop here. I am in heaven.

                            Dog, someone downloaded it to my computer a while ago and I stumbled upon it when I was looking to play Jack's Ozzie homerun call. Now I play it all the time when we don't have anyone there but the people I work with.
