Nils Lofgren releases free “Yankee Stadium” MP3

Hello everyone.  Nils Lofgren here.  I wanted to give you some history on this new song, “Yankee Stadium.” 
  My fabulous wife Amy (a Jersey girl), remains a life-long Yankee fan with a great, emotional history of experience in Yankee Stadium from childhood to present.  Her concept and the song’s chorus; “everyone is beautiful in Yankee Stadium,” was born from those memories and experiences.  She’s been asking me to write this song for a while and here it is. 
  I’m a long time fan myself, especially of the mythical and mystical nature of old Yankee Stadium, which I’ve been fortunate to experience first hand.  This song is an homage born of respect and gratitude for all the emotional and spiritual beauty Yankee Stadium has offered to so many, for so long.  We hope all you Yankee fans out there enjoy it!

Nils Lofgren

Chorus:
In Yankee Stadium  
in Yankee Stadium  
in Yankee Stadium  
everyone is beautiful  
everyone is beautiful
In Yankee Stadium


Sweet sentimental song, but Nils, have you seen the Bleacher Creatures?

Nice try Nils, but no "Bullets Fever."

Some of the greatest works in the world have come about as a result of the artist being nagged to death by his wife.

But sometimes taking out the trash isn't art, it's just taking out the trash.

everyone is beautiful


George S. loves the little Yankees
All the little Yankees of the world
Red and yellow, black and white
They are precious in his sight
George S. loves the little Yankees of the world

I first read the title as "'Yankee-Free Stadium' MP3."

I'm more into Freddy Schuman's "Glass Onion" b/w "Spoonman."

For every soul who entered here
we raise a glass we shed a tear
A beauty in every face appears
hope and love’s alive tonight


I'm sure no one will mind adding a few choruses to 7th inning stretch.

#1 with a bullet.
