Around a year ago, Bryce Harper announced his 2013 walk-up songs: “Bring Sally Up” by Moby, “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons, and “It’s Tricky” by Run-D.M.C.

The Post’s Whitney Leaming was in Viera during spring training, and asked several players — including Harper — for their 2014 music.

“I’ve got three: ‘Bring Sally Up’ by Moby, and then ‘Dark Horse,’ by Katy Perry, and ‘To Kill Ya,’ ” he responded. “If the fans sing it, that’ll be cool. So I’m excited.”

Being a stupid person, I’m not quite sure what “To Kill Ya” is. Maybe you know. Harper told Leaming that “Bring Sally Up” was and will remain his first at-bat music.

[Note: Commenters have pointed out that the Moby song is actually “Flower," although it contains the lyrics “Bring Sally Up."]

[Note: It’s actually called TaKillya.]

As for Adam LaRoche, “Oh, I have no idea,” he said. “I’ve got a couple buddies, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, who I do a lot of hunting with, so I assume a combination of some of their music.”

Among other topics discussed in this video were player superstitions. Harper said he has a bunch.

“I mean, I take the same amount of swings in the on-deck circle,” he said. “I hop the line every time, warm up with the same guy. I mean, there’s so many things. If my wrist bands working, I’m gonna use that every single day. If my tape job’s working I’m gonna use that. I mean, I kiss my bat in the on-deck circle before I go up to hit. I mean, there’s so many that I have to have.”
