What songs do MLB teams play when they win?

I was just curious if anyone knows what songs the 30 MLB teams play over the stadium speakers when they win a game. I'm assuming of course that all 30 teams do play a song of some kind. I suspect it may also change year to year, but for 2011... what are they playing when they get the big W?

For the San Diego Padres I know for 2011 they've been playing "Good Life" by One Republic starting at 45 sec. Also of note they play a version One Republic recorded where "Co-lo-rado" has been replaced with "San Diego" in the chorus.

I do love a little Matt "Guitar" Murphy. :)

The Yankees used to play two versions of "Theme From New York, New York" - Frank Sinatra after a win, and Liza Minelli after a loss. They phased out ol' Liza last year or the year before; guess they decided fans were punished enough by the loss.

Yankees have been playing "New York, New York" by Frank Sinatra for as long as I can remember. It used to be that they played that after a win and the Kate Smith version if they lost. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on the woman. I know that they play her version of "God bless America".

Angels win - "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang <_< Song is generic and lame, but nothing beats lighting up the Halo on the Big A after a victory.

Angels loss - Used to be "Jessica" by the Allman Brothers, but they changed it this year, and I can't exactly remember what it is.

Do the Giants still play 'Who Let The Dogs Out'? :D

Nope, they play the same song after wins that they have for as long as I can remember.

They also played this after the World Series parade last year too. After game 1 and 2 of last years World Series, Tony Bennett came out and sang it live.

Phillies play Harry Kalas singing "High Hopes".

How did this tradition come about?

Started when he died. He was known to sing that song at various times, generally while drunk. The first time I remember it was in the locker room after they clinched the division in '93. I'm not sure if that's when it started or not though, nor do I know why he liked that song, though he lived a very "Sinata"-esque life. He also sang it after they won the division in '97, '98, and NLCS and WS in '98.

Actually, the 1993 highlight video is actually titled "High Hopes".
