Bold predictions for the 2014 Reds

CINCINNATI - A Cincinnati Reds player is next in the lineup. As he makes his way to home plate, a burst of music from the speakers resonates throughout the ball park. Ah, the walk up song.

Remember Joey Votto's "Paint It Black" by the Rolling Stones? Brandon Phillips had five at-bat tunes, including  “Stay Schemin’” by Rick Ross and "Mercy" by Kanye West. Both of Todd Frazier's songs were Frank Sinatra favorites, "Fly Me To The Moon" and "Come Fly With Me."

The Reds have not yet released the 2014 playlist just yet, but while we wait for to find out, the 9 On Your Side team has come up with its own playlist: If we had to select ONE song that would introduce us to the world, what would it be?

Here are our picks. If you're a member of Spotify you can hear our playlist. (If not, it's free to join).
