Top 10 Baltimore song list

Nothing stirs up readers like a list.

Remember last week when I asked for your suggestions of songs with the word "Baltimore" in the title? 

That post got something like 50 comments.

The story ran in today's paper. You can read it here.

And you can read 20 more comments about songs I missed here.

I even got a phone call from an 83-year-old retired Episcopalian priest who sang the anthem of Baltimore to me.

We have an anthem?

I thought it was Thank God, I'm a Country Boy.

I got ur anthem.. The song is called
FISHIN" ON THE CHESAPEAKE BAY.The song doesn't mention Baltimore at all but there are just the right amount of O's in it to fly at an Orioles game.
