One of the staples of a Sox victory was "Sweet Home Chicago" played at the park. For some reason, they no longer play it. It's sometimes that "Boom" song they play when Jenks comes out, or whatever other teen angst song is popular these days.

MEMO TO BROOKS: BRING BACK SWEET HOME CHICAGO!

I totally agree with you on this one. It just didn't feel the same walking down the ramps after a huge win yesterday and there was no "Sweet Home Chicago" blaring from the sound system. They have to bring it back especially after wins like yesterday's.

For some reason I can't embed this, but how could they not play this:

I haven't heard it in a long time.

They used to play it really low in the background during the starting lineups. But I haven't heard it after a win in a long time.

I think it's because they went right to the press conference after the game.

I think it's also because they have started going to the press conference. I could be wrong.

I was wondering what was going on. The may have played Jenks' song since he had gotten the save. But I think Sweet Home Chicago should be played after all wins. On another musical not, Nancy was rocking before the game started!

no thanks. just fireworks and cheers when the game is over. Life is better without that overused song.

Put me in the "Sweet Home" Chicago corner.

I've attended over 200 Sox games the past three years and have yet to get sick of it after a Sox win.

I noticed it to. Its to bad because you hear that song and you know its a victory.

They should bring back the song because sometimes I forget the outcome when walking down the ramps.

I like Bon Jovi to immediately follow Sweet Home Chicago.

Not to hijack this thread but you may find this hard to believe but there is a good number of people who don't like Bon Jovi. I am one of them. I hate when "Living On A Player" gets blasted at the park or any bar I go to.

Anyway, Sweet Home Chicago is the perfect song to play after a Sox victory. One of my favorite things used to be on Saturday nights when they would play the song until the very end and when the horns stopped the lights would turn off and then the fireworks show would start.

You need to e-mail Brooks and let him know how you feel.

If they have indeed stopped playing it, we need to start a petition to bring it back.

I totally agree- we have a playlist on our ipod of just strictly "white sox songs" and play sweet home chicago allllll the time.. who thought it would be a good idea to get rid of it? dumb.

What else is on your white sox playlist?

Last year I tried to make a similar playlist consisting of typical songs heard around the park, songs played when players come to bat, etc. Sweet home chicago was of course a part of it as well.

Put me in the "bring it back corner" as well. When I go to Bulls games, I sing it after the Bulls win, which hasn't been often this year.

Here's my playlist in order:

He's A Pirate
Thunderstruck
Na Na Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye)
Don't Stop Believin'
Boom
Have A Nice Day
Sweet Home Chicago

I'd also be in favor of bringing it back. I never stay in my seat for the press conference anyway.

I can always read Ozzie's bull**** in the paper the next day.

By all means, it should be played after every Sox win.

Someone suggested it was "overplayed." Yeah, just like "New York, New York" is overplayed by the Yankees. Do you think you'd get a Yankee fan consensus on that? Not in a million years!

"Sweet Home Chicago" is a Chicago signature tune.

I was wondering why we did not hear it on Monday. If they have phased it out they have made another ****ty decision. If you think about it how many people actually stick around for the post game press conference. Brooks BRING IT BACK.

I will again point out that the only World Series title any of us have ever seen the White Sox win was won with the strains of Journey playing in the background. They got rid of Journey...no World Series in 2006.

Journey will be our billy goat if we do not fix this. :D:

Gotta bring back Sweet Home Chicago. It's the ultimate Chicago song.
