Does anybody know the name of that catchy Greek song played by organist Eddie Layton when the Yankees are at bat ? I know that Eddie is no longer with us, but his music is still played. They play "Hava Nagila" (Jewish) and "Tarantella" "Italian", but whats the name of the Greek song they play ? Thanks!

I think it was the theme from Zorba the Greek? It was also the song played in the movie "My big fat Greek wedding." There were lots of Italian songs including Phil Ruzzuto's theme song (played whenever Rizzuto came on the field or his name was mentioned).

"Never On Sunday" is a great song.


But the song that I'm thinking of that they play at Yankee Stadium is "Zorba The Greek".


Thanks !!

Y34,

Eddie's last CD that he issued had music that he played at Yankee Stadium, including "Blues for Mickey" that he wrote about Mickey Mantle, but I didn't see the Zorba the Greek on the playlist of the CD.

The "tango music" I believe you're referring to is Zorba the Greek by Herb Alpert and the Tiajuana Brass. They seem to play it a lot during a lengthy at bat.

Y34,

I would try Amazon.com or any of the other on-line music sites.
