Biagini, Estrada, and Grilli’s tunes
One by Three Dog Night
"One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do Two can be as bad as one It’s the loneliest number since the number one"
‘One’ summarizes the trials and pressures of a pitcher challenged with keeping opposing hitters from getting on base. It’s essentially Biagini’s role on the team and he’s excellent at it.
Three Dog Night lead singer Harry Nillson’s classic was inspired by making a phone call and listening to the busy signal for a while.
In fact, Biagini used ‘Tears of a Clown’ by Smokey Robinson last year.
Bodies by Drowning Pool
‘Bodies’ is a signature song that has been featured in various films, TV shows, and advertisements since its 2001 release. For anyone familiar with it, despite its somewhat dark lyrical content, there’s no debating the “pump-up value” of the track.
It was the theme song for the 2001 WWF Superslam pay-per-view event as well.
Whipping by Pearl Jam
"Don’t need a helmet, got a hard, hard head"
Grilli never takes that lyric to heart against his opponents.
Upon its CD release, the album Vitalogy became the second-fastest-selling album in history. Behind the band’s previous album VS., selling over 877,000 copies in its first week.
