Walk-up songs are all the rage in Major League Baseball nowadays. One New York Yankees legend shared what his would have been if such an idea existed in his day.

Yogi Berra's career didn't extend to the era of walk-up music. In fact, he thinks such a thing is silly; however Berra still gave an answer when asked what track would be playing during his strut to the plate, per Mike Gavin of Newsday:

Yogi Berra, 89, found walk-up music to be an odd concept when asked earlier this week. But he said he would have used the jazz classic, "Take the A Train" by Duke Ellington and Count Basie.

If you're like me or any other younger person, you've never heard that song. Well, fear not, here's an MTV-quality music video at your disposal:

Not exactly my cup of tea, but if it's good enough for Yogi, who am I to judge?

Besides, it isn't the music that's important, it's what the player does at the plate after the music stops playing that matters.
