The family of the man who wrote the most famous song of this baseball season isn't getting to profit off the Cubs World Series title.
FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:
(Goodman) "Go Cubs Go! Go Cubs Go!"
Steve Goodman's family sold the publishing rights to his entire catalog just a few months ago. He wrote the Cubs victory song in 1984, but never heard it at Wrigley, he died of leukemia just weeks later.
"Go Cubs Go" has now climbed to No. 21 on the Billboard charts, but it's far from his most successful song:
(Goodman) "Good morning America, how are you?"
He also wrote Arlo Guthrie's Grammy-winning hit 'The City of New Orleans,' as well as 'You Never Even Called Me by My Name,' made famous by David Allan Coe:
(Coe) "You never even called me by my name."
Goodman's family does still receive songwriter's royalties for "Go Cubs Go".
