One of the greatest songs of all time: Take Me Out to the Ballgame. Sung by one of the greatest singers of all time: Harry Caray! What can be better than standing up in the sunshine and singing with 35,000 of your friends at Wrigley Field! Heaven on Earth.  Oct 5, 2010, 9:46 AM Wayne Rhodes

Steve Goodman was a pretty successful singer/songwriter in his own right from the early 1970s to the mid-80s. Throughout that time, he was also battling leukemia. In 1984, he passed away at the age of 36. Eleven days after he died, the Cubs played their first playoff game since 1945. He was supposed to sing the national anthem. Instead, his friend Jimmy Buffett filled in.But before Goodman died, he wrote a musical will of sorts. It's a song that truly typifies the Cubs fan's ability to laugh through the pain: "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request."  Jun 13, 2015, 8:36 AM Wayne Rhodes

Steve Goodman also wrote "Go Cubs Go", a decidedly more upbeat, optimistic song than "A Cubs Fan's Dying Request". It was written in 1984 and over the years has become the quasi-official song which is sung at Wrigley ONLY AFTER a Cubs win (which is a little strange since the lyrics say "..the Cubs are gonna win today").   Jul 11, 2015, 10:48 AM Wayne Rhodes
