Walk Up Songs Revised

by LS Murphy
Last month, B. J. Rains wrote an article for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat about the walk-up songs for the St. Louis Cardinals. Every day since I read it, I have been coming up with goofier versions. For some reason, I can't get them out of my head.
So here's the list of walk-up songs that the boys with the birds on the bats use, followed by my corrected versions with a few comments.
Skip Schumaker – Now: Regulate, Warren G. What I think it should be: "Skip to My Lou". How perfect is this song? It has his name in it and where he plays? Someone needs to point this out to, Skip. By the way, just once, he needs to skip to the plate.
Ryan Ludwick - Now: Brass Monkey, Beastie Boys. What I think it should be: "Batter Up" by Nelly. Someone needs to use this song here in St. Louis. Luddy would be perfect for it.
Matt Holliday - Now: Chicken Fried, Zac Brown Band. What I think it should be: "Nothin' to Lose" by Josh Gracin. Because, with his ridiculous contract and no trade clause, Holliday's got nothing to lose here.
Colby Rasmus – Now: Simple Man, Lynyrd Skynyrd. I tried to come up with something better but this song fits Colby. I kept coming back to it.
David Freese - Now: Evenflow, Pearl Jam. What I think it should be: The theme song from Fanboy and ChumChum. Especially the line where they whine "Braaaiiinnn Freeeeezzzze".
Brendan Ryan - Now: Check Yoself, Ice Cube. What I think it should be: Pencil Thin Mustache by Jimmy Buffett. Self explanatory.
Now what about Albert? Now: The Professional, Canton Jones. What I think it should be? Isn't it obvious? The theme from Superman.
