Twins Walk-up Music 2009

What's that catchy tune they're playing while Denard swaggers up to the plate? I've been trying to figure it out, but as it turns out, I'm out of touch when it comes to new music. Instead, I just e-mailed Twins audio guy Kevin Dutcher, who was kind enough to present us this list of songs he plays for each Twin. The players requested these songs, and to figure out why, we've decided to dig into the lyrics.

Denard Span
- Jay-Z and T.I. - Swagga Like Us

Pertinent Lyric:
Lookin' from the surface it may seem like I got reason to be nervous
Then observe my work and see that my adversity was worth it!

Brendan Harris - Kid Rock - Bawitdaba, Linkin Park - Faint

Pertinent Lyric:
I am a little bit insecure a little unconfident
Cause you don't understand I do what I can, but sometimes I don't make sense!

(about his struggles to turn the double play)

Brian Buscher - AC/DC - Shoot to Thrill, Dierks Bentley - Lot of Leavin' to Do

Pertinent Lyric:
lovin’ me might be a long shot gamble
So before you go and turn me on
Be sure that you can turn me loose

No one's favorite Twin, and they're not afraid to turn him loose.

Joe Crede - Metallica - For Whom the Bell Tolls

Pertinent Lyric:
On the fight, for they are right? yes, by who's to say?

When Crede played for the White Sox, this must have gone through Crede's head before each game: I fight on for the White Sox, but is this right? Who is to say? *sigh* .....I should be playing for the Twins.

Carlos Gomez - Arcangel - Yo Soy el Mejor, Tito el Bambino - Reto, Wisin y Yandel - Fuera de Base, & Daddy Yankee - El Jefe

Pertinent Lyric (rough translation)
Toletera and strength as Bertrán Sosa Rabid cat, cut Mafia Of all the Latin is the most powerful In the case of malicious batting (Boom!) Cuida'o with foul

Rabid cats, malicious batting, mafia and foul balls. It makes sense to Carlos Gomez, and that makes sense to me.

Jason Kubel - Beastie Boys - Sabotage, Motley Crue - Shout at the Devil

Pertinent Lyric:
I Can't Stand Rockin' When I'm In Here 'Cause Your Crystal Ball Ain't So Crystal Clear

Yeah, this is a great song, but I'm struggling to see how it relates to Kubel. Someone sabotaged his knee in the Arizona Fall League?

Justin Morneau - AC/DC - T.N.T.

Pertinent Lyric:
On your colored TV screen

Flat screen TV's aren't really televisions at all; they're technically 'displays,' or 'monitors'

Nick Punto - MJ - Thriller

Pertinent Lyric:
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes

Noooo, not the Kinetico Water Systems Girl! AAArrgh!

Mike Redmond - Jermaine Stewart - We Don't Have to Take Our Clothes Off

Pertinent Lyric:
We don't have to take our clothes off
To have a good time

Naked catcher. We get it.

Delmon Young - Lil Wayne - Show Me My Opponent, Asher Roth - I Love College

Pertinent Lyric:
Pass out at 3, wake up at 10, go out to eat then do it again.

Baseball players and college the life.

Michael Cuddyer - Whiskey Falls - The Champ, Goody Mob - Cutty Buddy

Pertinent Lyric:

there's always a new kid coming to town
Looking for ways to try and knock him down
They got hungry eyes and a passion that burns
Chomping at the bit to get their turn

Luckily for Cuddyer, none of the new kids will be knocking him down, because he is Gardenhire's Cutty Buddy.

Awesome post Haas. I wonder what crappy song Mauer is going to use.

Unrelated note:

DJ HeavyGrinder is spinning hardcore jumpstyle techno @ the Myth on Friday Night. 10 bucks. She's hot, world famous, and we'll dance like cokeheads. And she's even been leaving my myspace page comments:

But anyways, everyone come out to this its gonna be awesomeeee.

haha, cutty buddy. Denard was walkin out to MIA last night. They must change it up all the time... didnt harris used to walk out to warrant?

I have an announcement to make... last night The Mrs and I were starred on the kiss cam. It was a proud moment. I can now mark that off my list of dome mid inning promos. I still want to be in the hormel row of fame and throw a ball into the giant inflatable ice cream pail.

HAHA. Of course those are the lyrics to Gomez's walk-up music! I wouldn't be surprised if he wrote them himself.

If, nay, when I make it to the majors my walk-up music is going to be something really weird. Something to really mess with the pitcher's head, like the "baby elephant walk" or something.

congrats Brex. That's something you can tell your grandchildren about.

I haven't seen the Kinetico Water system's girl since she came onto our blog and killed Joe Mays. I think she has escaped the Metrodome and is on the loose.

Keaton always said, "I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him." Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is the Kinetico Water System's girl.

oh and brex, that is MIA on Swagga Like Us.

If I ever make the bigs, my walk up song will be Tanner1985's "Amanda Wearing A Cat Tail" If you don't know if you'll have to ask Waters.

Congrats to the Brex's.

Hahah! I can't wait TFRezac. I need to update my name since I haven't called my self DJ Tanner for years now. I'm making a Youtube video with that song and a bunch of photos of amanda bynes where I photoshopped cat ears and tails on her like this one

And then Im gonna send it to her lol!
