Kids today have such terrible choices for music.
Every week I will expose the kids to something better.
CE LA LUNA
I can’t imagine hearing the song Take Me Out to the Ball Game without it being immediately followed by Lou Monte’s Ce La Luna (Lazy Mary). Honestly, it is so ingrained in my mind, when we saw the Mets in Toronto a few years ago and when the TMOTHBG ended it seemed wrong that there was nothing after it.
The song which is in Italian and English (or British as Lou Monte says) is kind of dirty, but its such a great song. The music makes you want to bounce around and clap your hands. And yes the beginning is the same as Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey, which Monte also recorded.
Now that baseball season is back in the full swing of things, except for the Mets offense, this is the perfect reminder of why seeing a ball game live is one of the best ways to spend a spring/summer/fall day or evening.
