With all due respect to Ernie Hays, the organist at Shea is absolutely rolling tonight.
Selections in the last 30 minutes or so (now updating in real time, because this is great stuff; I’d love a radio station that played this kind of variety):
"New York State of Mind" (Billy Joel); "Crazy" (Gnarls Barkley); "Clocks" (Coldplay); "Hold On, I’m Comin’" (Sam & Dave); "In the Midnight Hour" (Wilson Pickett); "I Wanna Be Sedated" (Ramones… RIP, CBGB); "Dirty Little Secret" (All-American Rejects); "Tequila" (The Champs); "Dani California" (Red Hot Chili Peppers); "Brown Eyed Girl" (Van Morrison, though on the organ it sounds more like the Jimmy Buffett version).
They’ve all sounded good, lively, and you can’t top the variety. Great stuff. I’m actually dancing in my seat a little bit. Then again, maybe that’s the gallon of coffee I’ve consumed.
Now let’s have a memorable game to top it off.
