A sporting event would not be the same without the heart pounding music to pump everyone up. Some songs were made to be played a various events while others just seem to find a home on the playing field. As long as music continues to be written and sports continue to be played there will always be a happy paring between the two. Here is a list of my top 10 sports songs. I hope that you enjoy it.
Another one Bites the Dust by Queen: Here is the perfect song to play when you just won the game. Sure you already beat your opponent and now you have a celebratory song to remind them over and over.
We are the Champions by Queen: Yes another song by Queen. These guys may not have intended to write songs for sporting events, but they sure did one heck of a job.
We Will Rock You by Queen: This is by far the best Queen song played at sporting events. It doesn’t matter what type of sport it’s played at it always gets the job done.
Remember the Name by Fort Minor: I think that this song was on one of the previews for the television show Friday Night Lights. It is amazing, because it makes so much sense and is pretty motivational for sports. I have never heard it at an actual event, but when I think sport’s songs I think Remember the Name.
Lose Yourself by Eminem: I’m not really an Eminem fan on any level, but this song is pretty motivational for sports. It is the kind of song you listen to in the off season to keep you motivated when things get tough. While not your traditional sports song it definitely has a place on this list.
We’re Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister: Here is another oldie, but in my opinion a goodie. This song wasn’t written for sporting events, however it will always have a home on the playing field.
Zombie Nation by Kernkraft 4000: This song is so cool and perfect for a sports song. It really doesn’t have any words, but will pump you up. I love it!
Get Ready for This by 2 Unlimited: I have heard this song at many games and on many sports movies. If this song isn’t sports worthy then I don’t know what is.
YMCA by The Village People: Now I’m not sure why, but this song has worked its way into the sports song line up. No matter where I am when I hear it I feel like I am at a game of some sort.
Cotton Eye Joe by Rednex: I would imagine this song gained popularity as a sports song because of its inclusion on the Jock Jams 3 cd. In my opinion it has all the qualities of a good sports song so I have included it.
If you are looking for one of these great sports songs or many others then I would suggest listening to one of the Jock Jams or Jock Rock cds. They are packed full of loads of great music and I highly recommend them. You can also find some great music on www.playlist.com or on Youtube.
