Five Great Walk-Up Songs That Baseball Needs Now

4. "Miserlou" by Dick Dale & the Del-Tones

Somewhere right now there's a lead-off hitter who desperately needs to get him some Dick. He might not know it yet -- might be completely in the dark about his need for Dick -- but he'll find out soon enough.

The promise of "Miserlou" is all right there in the first ten seconds. Everything you need to know about the song, about the virtuosity of the man playing it and the bumpy, exhilarating ride it promises to take you on is right up front. For a man tasked with igniting an offense, you can't do much better than that.

And no, just in case anyone reading this list is wondering, that shitty song where the Black Eyed Peas sampled this classic does not count. Not even close.
