Lotta things happening today. Easter Monday. Dyngus Day. Also: BASEBALL’S OPENING DAY! Naturally, today’s post is about the latter of those three things. This was written while watching a Cubs game in April of 2006. To me, the long-suffering teams (like, say, the Cubs and Indians) are great fodder for songs like this early in a season. There’s no irony here – this tune is unabashed optimism, placed in the poppiest setting possible. Key of C Major, lotta piano, (bad) guitar solo in place of the third verse, double chorus at the end… you name the cliche, it’s probably in here. Enjoy!
Production, mixing, all instruments by me. From The Baseball Project 2. Recorded in April 2006.
