I know I promised to talk about the last race but something happened today that got me thinking about something else.
I just finished a baseball practice and one of my fellow co-workers asked me an off-the-cuff question, "What's your at-bat song?"
My star studded reply was, "Huh?"
"You know, the the song they would play at the stadium when you came to bat."
"Oh," I say, "Um .."
My thought processes now on overload.
I think, "Wild Thing" and then realize that is so "Major League" and then I think, "Come on get original."
"Shout It Out Loud by Kiss," I respond.
"Thunderstruck by AC/DC would be mine," she says.
"That's a good one for sure," I agree all the while thinking, "Damn it, her's is better than mine!"
Oh, hey you've got a jump to do ...
So this little occurrence got me thinking about NASCAR drivers' theme songs and what they would play when they were introduced.
I know they already do this but honestly they don't really play the songs on the T.V. and unless you are sitting right on the front stretch of the track then good luck in hearing the song.
So here is my list of theme songs for the drivers in the Chase. If you've got a better one then comment it up.
Mark Martin - Up Around The Bendby CCR
Tony Stewart - Song 2 (a.k.a Woo Hoo)by Blur (voulume is a little low on this link so turn it up!)
Jimmie Johnson - Takin' Care of Business by BTO
Denny Hamlin - Remember The Name - Fort Minor
Kasey Kahne - Pump Itby Blackeyed Peas
Jeff Gordon - Kick Start My Heart- Motley Crue
Kurt Busch - Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns and Roses
Brian Vickers - Fuelby Metallica
Carl Edwards - Born to Run by Bruce Springsteen
Ryan Newman - Fight The Good Fight by Triumph
Juan Montoya - Livin' La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin
Greg Biffle - Back In Black - AC/DC
See if you can figure out why I chose some of these 'Chase' songs for the drivers.
