Player Celebration Songs (Updated 12.14.10)

So I thought I would take a recent entry from Copper and Blue and run with the same idea here (in fact, I started with a copy of that exact table and made the obvious player changes and a few formatting tweaks... I hope that's not entirely bad form to copy someone's HTML, it's just that I suck at it). 

After reading through our discussion on the topic, I gather that many people are perfectly fine with the standard/classic Fog Horn + "Rock and Roll Pt.2".  I myself wouldn't mind the old avalanche siren back with a different stadium rock standard, but that's just me.

Nevertheless, I figure with all the player nicknames, infinite in-jokes, and the frequent thread-jacks and tangents of which we are all guilty, we can probably come up with some pretty awesome suggestions for player celebration songs.  And while I agree with C&B that we should call them celebration songs instead of goal songs, my reasoning is so we can give Craig Anderson a proper song when he's called out as the #1 star of a game--when he gets healthy of course.

So here's what I suggest (if people even care):

I'll make a bold-faced comment for each player listed below, and you all can reply with song suggestions.  My hope is that we can vote on favorites with "Recs" to determine which makes it onto the graph.  As the votes accumulate, I'll start linking to Youtube (or wherever it can be found).  On that note, please be specific of what song you're talking about (and even what "minute:second" you may be referring) so I can make the appropriate link.

The bottom-half of the comments can be the open-ended, random discussions to which we've all become accustomed.

If anyone has any other suggestions on formatting, adding columns, or a better voting system, please let me know!

This is updated as of the crazy game against Chicago (7-5 win, 3 goals in the last 2:30 minutes!).  I've added ROB, Shatty, Flash, Mauldin, Hunwick and removed Hannan. 

Unfortunately commenting is closed for this thread.  If there's really that much interest in updating or changing these, shoot me an email (it's in my profile) or make a note of it in a GD thread as divine inspiration hits you!
