A selection of music from some of our favourite industry insiders
Featuring 10 athletes from the National Football League
The Special NFL Edition
For professional athletes, performing at a high level often relates to one's pre-game routine. The superstitions, the pep-talks, and sometimes the right song blaring in your headphones to wash away those pre-game jitters. This weeks In Rotation takes a look at the songs that inspire some of the NFL’s best. Rookies, take note.
I like it because it has a good vibe and it’s one of the few tracks that I know the words, so it’s nice to be able to repeat the lyrics in my head while
I’m listening to it. —Buy Music
I always had a theme song each year, and this was mine last season. I like the beat and the meaning behind the lyrics. I’m already filled up with excitement going into the game so I like to listen to tracks that will keep me mellow.
I got this track on repeat driving to the stadium and right before the game. It gets me juiced up, I stick to this one.
He has great music to listen to before a game, it really gets me focused
before I take the field. —Buy Music
It like listening to this song because it gets me in my zone.
I need to listen to slow tracks because I’m already amped up with rage and anger before I play so I need something that will calm me down and
keep me focused. —Buy Music
I got a playlist that I listen to but this is one of the tracks that really gets me going. I don’t need to be calm going into the game, I need to get hyped up and this gets me ready for game time.
It’s important for me to listen to a track that I can bob my head to and get the adrenaline flowing, but not too much that it will get me tired. But this track by Drake gets my mind right before the game.
I consider myself a beast, and Lil’ Wayne always talks about being a monster, and the words in that song prepare you to go into combat. I can’t explain how it makes me feel, but it helps me to perform at a high level.
