Yes I have it on a 2 CD set of Goodman's best. The set also includes a song he did for WGN radio (they put out a record of it):

Go Cubs Go
Go Cubs Go
Hey Chicago whaddaya say?
The Cubs are gonna win today

Baseball time is here again
You can hear it all on WGN
So stomp your feet and clap your hands
Chicago Cubs got the greatest fans... etc.

At least she's hot, though. I must confess to owning several of her records (yes, vinyl) back in the late 80s, early 90s, while in the midst of the whole modern rock, post-punk college phase. For almost 40 years old, you could do worse.

Well, it was done in good spirit and wasn't disrespectful, even if her voice wasn't in great shape. (To give her the benefit of the doubt, it's getting cold out there....)

I guess considering the recent actions of the entertainment nitwits these days, I'll call this a plus.

(Yes, I'm a pushover for guitar-playing blondes....)

It was godawful, I agree. I had my back turned to the TV when it started and I expected Stevie Nicks. But I don't think Stevie Nicks even sings *that* bad.

"Yeah. It was a nice little arrangement, but her performance says a lot about what kinds of things they can do in a recording studio."

yes, indeed. Anyone's voice can be doctored to sound professional. I normally hate Sheryl Crow but that one song of her's that Drudge always plays on his Sunday night radio show (it's called "Chances Are") is an absolutely gorgeous, stunning track. No way can Crow really sing that beautifully, of course.

I'm torn here tonight. I'm a National League Central fan...Cubs. But its the Chi-Sox I'm pulling for.....I feel like a traitor..damn

I hear ya. I'm from the North Side, born and bred Cubs fan. But the Sox are Chicago, after all! So you're still pullin' for da home town!

The Cubs will get their turn in 2008, just in time for our every-century '08 championship.

But for now: GO SOX!

"Maybe it's just me but I think that woman sounds horrible."

No, it's not just you. That was embarrassing. And to think I actually spent money on her records 15 years ago. Her first couple of records are classics, especially "Exile in Guyville" (of course it's feminazi indie rock, but hey).....

I'm not originally from Chicago, but I am a lifelong Cubs fan living in Houston. While it was fun watching the Cubs get the better of the Astros this year, I really have to admire the heart and winning attitude of these guys here in Houston, and that's why I am pulling for them. There's something special about a team on which none of the players (not even Clemens) is bigger than the game.

Yeah, I wasn't expecting a great performance from Liz Phair, as I've heard her earlier work before she got mainstream exposure and her voice then was rather weak. But she can rock in the rock environment.

I hope the Stros get him home. When Willie T drives it to the wall, its time to pull your pitcher.

Houston was great -- lived/worked there 1998-2000. Is Westheimer and Hillcroft still Westheimer and Hillcroft? That's close to where I lived, and there used to be a guy at that intersection with no arms or legs. He would scoot back and forth on a skateboard, taking money from people in cars, with a cup which he extended out several feet, using only a straw and his mouth. I used to give him a little money whenever I saw him; I can't imagine life without arms or legs. I still am in awe of that whole scene. The only time I lived in a big city.

I doubt it. Hopefully Lamb will lift one to the outfield and not hit into a double play.

I was from far north side, Cub fan....

Whereabouts on the far north side? I'm from near Devon & Western. Also, from your comments, I see we're about the same age; you're about three years older than I am (I was born in 1953). I used to go just about every game at Wrigley Field when I was a kid--only 75 cents. Went to a bunch of Sox games, too, in the 1970s.

married a girl from Cicero..Sox fan family

I've got a mixed marriage, too--Cards fan.
