30 Clubs in 30 Songs: St. Louis

Hello there. Usually, today would be the “off-days” post and this song would show up on Friday. BUT, since I’m going out of town this weekend, the “schedule” is reversed this week! And, in this case, the timing couldn’t be any better. Just last night, a Cincinnati player got the St. Louis manager all riled up and angry with the baseball quote of the season: “They’re little bitches, all of ’em.” For me, the best part is I wrote this song about the manager and his legendary Angry Manager Face. It’s almost like I planned this…

…But how to set it to music? I narrowed it down to two options: Either really uptempo punk/metal shouting “Angry Manager Face!” or all acoustic-style asking “What’s with the face?” Since I know what direction I want to take for the project’s last four songs (here’s a hint: consider this track the calm before the storm), I actually went with the latter. No drum set (cajon, shaker, and a cymbal played with brushes), a little bit of slide guitar, and here we are. Enjoy the musical (your favorite off-speed pitch goes here).

St. Louis

Next up: Tampa Bay (Tuesday), Texas (Friday)

  1. Great one, Ed. Probably my favorite of the series so far.

  2. Thank you, sir. I like the change of pace this one provides. The bonus (besides tonight’s brawl) is it kinda serves as a companion for Cleveland, too.
