As we head toward Thanksgiving with football and hockey in full swing, basketball underway, and college football heading toward the playoffs, there’s plenty of sports on TV. If you’re DJing a sport, here’s a few songs for you to think about adding.
A-YO – Lady Gaga
You probably heard this previewed during the World Series. It’s an upbeat, clappable song from Lady Gaga who has reemerged lately with some game-friendly music. This could be used for walk-in, in-game, or anytime you need to fill.
Oh No – Goodbye June
This song rocks, great for hockey and football. A hard rock song that gets you moving.
My Way – Calvin Harris
Not as hard hitting as some of his other dance songs, but a good song for walk-in.
Open Your Eyes – Disturbed
We just listed this in several categories, but it’s a rocking song from Disturbed. Would you expect anything different, add it to your hockey playlists and warm-ups now.
Let It Burn – Blackberry Smoke
A country song that rocks. Add this, have it on hand, change the pace a little bit.
Kids – One Republic
Do you have a promotion with kids involved, this would make a great music bed.
Last Breath – Future
Looking for something to play from rap and hip hop, here’s something you can throw in. Use the instrumental for in-game, or the entire song as a warm-up. If timed right, you could also play this coming out of a timeout with the sampling of “Gonna Fly Now”.
Set the Roof – Rae Sremmurd featuring Lil Jon
This has a fun hook and could be used for basketball or football, could even see it being used for hockey as well.
Out of My Head – The Griswolds
Good for walk-in, could also find this used in game situations, possibly for penalties.
New Song – Warpaint
Walk-in song that has a nice sound to it. A little bit of a throw back to New Wave with a modern sound.
