Naturally, Dice-K Will Be Releasing a CD

Remdawg was a natural selection for Dice-K's disc.

In keeping with Dice-K's underhyped stroll through major league stardom, it was announced yesterday that Dice-K will be releasing an album. Matsuzaka will not be playing any music for the album nor will he be providing any spoken word or vocals. The album is simply a compilation of his favorite songs (pretty much a glorified Itunes Celebrity Playlist) as well as an original song by a veritable Rock Super Group that includes Extreme's Nuno Bettencourt, Sox Announcers Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo and J. Geils Band Member Magic Dick:
Daisuke Matsuzaka's CD. EMI Music Marketing announced yesterday that it's releasing "Music From the Mound," a compilation of Dice-K's favorite tunes. The album will include one original track, "Gyro Ball," which will feature former J.Geils harmonica player Magic Dick, former Extreme guitarist Nuno Bettencourt, and NESN announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy. (Dice-K does not sing or perform on the album.) "I enjoy a wide variety of music, especially rock, hip - hop and R&B," Matsuzaka said in a statement. "I am excited to share my favorite inspirational songs with everyone in Red Sox Nation and beyond."
Favorite inspirational songs, eh? Well no list of songs has yet been released (other than the song "The Second Coming," which is featured in a couple Nike Commercials), but I came up with a few inspirational songs that I think will be on it:

1. After The Rain - Nelson
2. Bang Bang - Danger Danger (they're huge in Japan)
3. PopoZao - K-Fed
4. Separate Ways - Journey
5. In Da Club - 50 Cent
6. Walk The Dinosaur - Was Not Was
7. Final Countdown - Europe
8. Rock & Roll Parts 1 & 2 - Gary Glitter (Dice-K is one of the few who truly appreciate "Part 1")
9. Rump Shaker - Wreckz-N-Effect
10. Ai ga Tomaranai ("Turn It Into Love") - Wink (a cover of Kylie Minogue's Pop Epic)
11. My Sharona - The Knack
12. This Time Around - Hanson (nothing gets me pumped up like this song)

If I'm even close to right about any of these songs, it will be the greatest album in recorded history.
