Only on ’70s night …

It’s ’70s night at Dodger Stadium, and this week’s postgame fireworks show — they’re planning on having one after every Friday night home game this season — is going to be accompanied by ’70s music. I just saw Emma, who posts comments here often, down in the field-level seats wearing a crazy ’70s afro wig. Right now, tonight’s anthem singer is in the press box rehearsing with Nancy Bea at the organ, so we’re hearing The Star-Spangled Banner at the same time they are playing that one ’70s song — it goes, “Wo-man, take me in your arms, rock me, baby,” so if you know who sings that and what the title is, feel free to post — so we’re hearing those two songs on top of each other. Delightful. Now they are playing Dust in the Wind, and the woman is rehearsing the anthem for a second time. Even more delightful. … By the way, someone from Cincinnati emailed me the other day wondering if Clayton Kershaw is related to Sammy Kershaw, the country singer. I checked with him, and he said no. But he did say that some of his teammates have taken to calling him Sammy in the clubhouse. … Now they’re playing Show and Tell. I don’t know who sang that, either, but it could be Lou Rawls. Wait, no, I just looked it up on Google. It’s Al Wilson. I’m going to get out of here before that woman starts singing the anthem again.

    Tony,
    Just got through covering an International League game between Norfolk and the new Gwinnett Braves here outside of Atlanta, so my Dodger fan alter ego has nothing better to do than to tell you that the first song you referred to is “Rock Your Baby” by George McCrae, a song that echoed through my youth. And now is stuck in my head for the rest of the night.

    George McCrae sings the song:

    “Woman, take me in your arms…rock your baby…
    there’s nothing to it, just say ya want to do it…
    Open up your heart and let the loving STAAAAAART…”
    Oh yeah. I have the 45.
    Lots of KC and The Sunshine Band 45s too.
    And Bee Gees.
    I bet the music is great there tonight!
