Blue Jays Songs: The Music of Summers Past

JaysThe Toronto Blue Jays home opener is tomorrow. I won't be at the game, because I'll be busy earning my Father of the Year award, but more on that later.

I've written a ton about how much this team meant to me from 1983 through 1993. I clung to every inning during the Drive of '85 while worshipping George Bell, Dave Stieb, Tony Fernandez and the like. Every year at this time, I get that tingly sensation. It's the thrill of the grass, and it all begins now.

In honour of another new Blue Jays season, here's a whole bunch of old school Blue Jays songs I've shared over the past seven years of blogging. Throughout the season, I'll share more. If you remember Kelly Gruber's fog grandslam, George Bell's opening day trifecta of homers or those 9th inning two out singles Dave Stieb gave up, you'll love this.

Stayclassy.net thinks that some of the Ottawa Senators players could fill some voids on the Blue Jays roster.

Most of the audio here is hosted in my old Odeo account, but Odeo is less reliable than it once was.

If the audio won't play, it's an Odeo issue. Soon I'll migrate everything over to my imeem account.

Thank you for your patience.

I've migrated most of these songs to imeem, so they'll play. I'll move the last few Odeo tracks over tomorrow.

Use your head not your heart. JP is almost as bad as JF JR. What has he done the last couple of years to make the team better. NADA.
Jays will be out of the playoff race by July.

I'll share a new song every week during the season... I've got plenty more.

Including a 2nd Humble Howard track he doesn't want rediscovered.
