Let Me Into The Blaseball

August 16, 2020 1:20 PM

While most recording equipment is destroyed by the ambient cosmic horror rays that suffuse a typical blaseball game, we've unearthed a rare crowd sing-along performance captured on hand-carved vinyl by an especially stalwart Charleston Shoe Thieves fan. Here, then, is "Let Me Into The Blaseball", an absolutely legally non-infringing original song that blaseball fans have been known to sing in what short time the Blaseball Gods choose to grant them.

I really like the idea of doing a proper singalong version of this; if folks in the blaseball fandom end up digging it and are into sending along recordings of themselves singing along, I'll happily compiles those into a crowd-singing version that doesn't sound so suspiciously like a half-dozen Joshes yelling at a mic from five feet away.

Let me into the blaseball
Let me into the stands
The crackle of peanuts, the crack of the gunblades
The screaming of millions of terrified fans

Every week is a year long
Time flies when you're eaten by birds
So let me into the blaseball
And read me the Forbidden Words

The Commisioner is doing a great job
So read me the Forbidden Words
Play ball!

Sweet Caroline! Are the forbidden words Play and Ball?

My "the words are forbidden" t-shirt has people asking a lot of questions already answered by my shirt.

I was going to see if you had posted this in the #fanworks channel of the discord, but you're in there about four hours ago showing off your personal blaseball fan page, so I figure it's probably been posted already. I love this!
