Señor Smoke

I found this old scrap of index card inside the cassette tape case of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" while digitizing some old cassettes recently. The writing is in the adolescent hand of a baseball fan I know, who was 15 in 1984 when her team, the Detroit Tigers, obliterated the rest of the American League and won the World Series in a sweep against the Padres.

She had wanted to be able to remember the lyrics to a promotional song about the Tigers that was produced that year. The song was based on "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" by McFadden and Whitehead, and featured a voice-over narration / old-skool rap extolling the virtues of the Tigers' impressive lineup.

The song streams here.
