You hear music played on the Wrigley Field P.A. system when each Cubs batter comes up to hit, or when a pitcher heads to the mound. Some of the songs are quite recognizable, others you might not be familiar with.
Below are the songs chosen by 2021 Cubs players. The Cubs sent me a list of the first song each player uses; some use only one, but others have multiple song choices, noted as heard at the ballpark. Some players currently on the active roster might not be on this list. Note: All songs played at Wrigley Field are family-friendly “clean” versions. The song title is listed first, then the artist.
