Also Sprach Zarathustra Op.30: Einleitung (Opening), Richard Strauss Feat. London Philharmonic Orchestra & Klaus Tennstedt
I don’t know if Josh Reddick wants to fuck with us or he has a genuinely interesting music taste… It could be both.
Reddick used to arrive at the batter’s box serenaded by the opening saxophone riff in “Careless Whisper” by George Michael. Which certainly deserves its own honorable mention on this list.
Now, Reddick walks to “Also Sprach Zarathustra Op.30: Einleitung (Opening).” Otherwise known as the theme song from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
See, the walk-up songs have to be short. With this orchestral piece, Reddick gets five notes and probably enough motivation to hit the stitching off the ball.
