While they introduce the players individually "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC is played. If you are talking about the historical pieces on the scoreboard before the individual intros, I like it. :smile:

My fellow Iron Maiden Fans can appreciate that. A calm before the storm.

So Carl Freaking Orff (1895-1982) (http://w3.rz-berlin.mpg.de/cmp/orff.html) wrote music for video games?

*Groan*

The music is inspiring and intimidating, and one of the best things that's happened to the pregame this year. Now can we please stop talking about it? This is about the tenth thread about it.

it's not from final fantasy. it might bear some similarities to a piece made for a video game but this is serious classical music. i know the name was given in a previous thread by another user. can't think of the name right now.

and yes it is awesome.

and yes it is awesome.The piece (called O, Fortuna) is the first and last song in a suite of folk-songs put to dramatic music by the aforementioned Carl Freaking Orff. The whole composition is called Carmina Burana. Buy the CD! You'll love it! :cool:

There's too much hooplah before games. For some reason we have not one but two reels featuring past Sox players with dramatic music behind it. For the first one with that ominous "the Omen" sounding music they run down all our former greats...yes, like Don Pall and Darrin Jackson. It's kinda lame. Then a few minutes later they go to the classic intro thingy they've had for a few years with all the clocks at the end. Either one or the other guys.

I can't sit still during the intros I like them so much. They just make me want to mooooove. My gf got pissed at me the last game we went to because during the intros she was talking to me and I said to her "Would you just shut-up and let me enjoy this!" She wasn't happy. The first piece with the music and the 'past greats' is OK--I could do without it. But the rest, especially Dave Wills and Thunderstruck, is awesome!

It's the Tigers, and the White Sox............N-E-X-T!

I've enjoyed O' Fortuna ever since I first heard it in the movie Excalibur. Pretty cool movie if you haven't seen it. The piece plays as King Arthur rides with his knights to the final combat scene. As Arthur rides through the countryside, all of the dead flowers and trees instantly return to life as he passes. When I here the piece at the game, I therefore associate it with riding into combat to vanquish a profound evil!!! It's especially gratifying when the Sox are playing the Yankees. :D:

That is awesome. Excalibur is the definitive arthurian film. They should stop bothering with those crappy remakes every 5 years.

As something of a traditionalist, I wish they'd do away with all music except the organ. The organ should play jazz, classical, or some rock themes instead of today's hits such as 'Hey Ya' by Outkast.

I like the opera stuff at the beginning...but I especially like the retro scene with the Sox batter stepping up to the plate and hitting the ball over the scoreboard. That's when they start showing Sox legends of the past. Pretty cool. :cool:

Someone in the Parking Lot mentioned that the sox should use O fortuna by Orff several months ago. Whoever it was should stand up and take credit. Further proof sox management gets ideas from WSI.
