When Josh Reddick started using George Michael's '80s hit "Careless Whisper" as his walk-up song, he had no idea it would generate so much attention.

The A's outfielder spoke about this and how he came to use the Wham! ballad on a new edition of the "The Buzz with Jimmy Traina."

Reddick also revealed that the A's are trying to get Michael to the Oakland Coliseum in the near future for a possible performance.

Other topics discussed were Reddick's favorite song lyric, his favorite music and which other '80s artists he enjoys.

Before using "Careless Whisper," Reddick used Daniel Bryan's theme music as his walk-up song. The huge WWE fan gave us insight on his relationship with Triple H, what angle he could envision himself in, and his wish for WrestleMania 31 in San Francisco.

In addition to the music and wrestling talk, Reddick also shared a funny story about how he involved himself in a situation where a guy -- who may have had one too many -- tried to pick up an attractive female on a recent flight.
