Hello again everyone ! This is Michael “Grubes” Gruber, musical director of your Texas Rangers. Welcome to my super awesome baseball playlist of fun and joy. May brought warm weather sooner than many of us expected or wished.
But with that, we also have a hotter than expected Rangers squad, and we can all support that! A fun month of Rangers baseball means another fun month of Rangers music, so let’s get to the tunes!
Classic Baseball Songs of the Month
‘Bad Moon Rising’, Creedence Clearwater Revival: The infamous blood moon was supposed to happen on the night of May 15, so even though Rangers started in the afternoon that day, I had to play greatness of CCR in homage!
“In The Summertime”, Mungo Jerry: Fun Groove. Funny lyrics. Fun times!
Fun songs played at Globe Life Field
“All Around the World (La La La)”, A Touch of Class and R3HAB: A cover of the classic ATC dance song, this banger sounds great on the state-of-the-art Globe Life Field speakers!
“Feel Good Inc”, Gorillaz: A long time personal favourite, I love playing between sets to get the fans moving!
“Love is Gone,” David Guetta (Fred Rister & Joachim Garraud remix): Shamelessly stolen from Ole Miss’ baseball playlist, this is a great late-game trending song. Pump your fist like the party animal that you are!
“Shake Your Groove Thing,” Peaches and Herb: You can never go wrong with Peaches and Herb when you want to keep the crowd in high spirits.
“That Thing You Do”, Billie Joe Armstrong: Green Day frontman covers an absolute classic song from an invented band!
Songs from the Walk-in Player of the Month
“Cirice”, Ghost: Josh Sborz didn’t provide a backing song when he joined the team last year, so I decided to have fun and bring a song I like from a great group. Also, wearing #66 helped choose something a bit darker. 🙂 Then, when all the players submitted their songs for this season, Sborz officially requested it! Felt like a bit of a full loop moment.
“Kickstart My Heart,” Motley Crue: Dane Dunning picked an absolute one-song rocker to start the match. I dare you not to hit your head when that guitar riff starts!
“The Next Episode (Instrumental)”, Dr. Dre: Kole Calhoun is clearly a man of impeccable taste as it is one of the best beats in recorded human history. We support Kole Calhoun!
