It’s that time of year again, sports fans: the rec season starts up for my kids next week. For the last couple of years, our family has recorded a cd of music intended to pump up the boys during the drive to the soccer fields. Here’s what we had on last year’s cd:
Let’s Get it Started/The Black Eyed Peas + Dynamite/Taio Cruz + Tick Tick Tick Boom/The Hives + DMZ/Dash Rip Rock + Crunk (radio edit, of course)/The Ying Yang Twins + All Star/Smashmouth + Unbelievable/EMF + Tonight’s Gonna Be a Good Night/The Black Eyed Peas + Band of 1000 Dances/Wilson Picket
I haven’t had much time to catch up on contemporary tunes, and I fear if I give creative control of this year’s cd over to my wife, my sons will end up listening to lots of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga on the way to their games, and I’m not so sure they’ll arrive in appropriately pumped up fashion. Suggestions?
