2) Wild Thing from Major League VS 19) As we walk to Fenway Park in Boston Town from Fever Pitch

3) Centerfield from Bull Durham VS 18) Cornbread from the film Cornbread, Earl and Me

Too many of these just weren't made FOR sports movies, although some fit wel in the respective flicks. Hippy Hippy Shake, though...wasn't that in the soundtrack for Cocktail?

No matter what, though; you get big points for having a Public Enemy song. Happy Day!
