Baseball Mixtape: Kenesaw Mountain Landis

Words to win my heart: Kenesaw Mountain Landis was a bad motherfucker.

So begins this Dylan-esque tune by Jonathan Coulton, geek-folk troubadour. The lyrics weave their way from old Kenesaw himself, to Shoeless Joe Jackson, to the singer Joe Jackson — oft mistaken for Elvis Costello — of Is She Really Going Out With Him fame.

Thanks to Ted for the suggestion and the cool new Turntable logo.

  • I keep thinking of the guy who played Kenesaw in 8 Men Out. A crotchity old dude with a flyswatter in his hand. I know, weird reference, but that’s all I keep thinking about.
