Football season has kicked off, so you know what that means: it’s time for another playlist! Whether you want a pre-game pump up, or are missing your team mid-week and need a little something to tide you over, turn on one of these songs. Then win big.
“The Boys of Fall” by Kenny Chesney
A song about the high school football team, it hits on a host of feel good themes: camaraderie, brotherhood, and playing to win. Score.
“Backfield in Motion” by Mel and Tim
There’s nothing not to like about a song that uses football metaphors to talk about cheating in a relationship. “I caught you with your backfield in motion, yeah, I’m gonna have to penalize you.”
“Football Rap” by LL Cool J
From the movie Wildcats, this song plays as the credits run, and features performances by Wesley Snipes and Goldie Hawn. It’s a parody of the Chicago Bears video of the ‘Super Bowl Shuffle’.
“We are the Champions” by Queen
Ok, so it’s not a football song specifically, but you can’t help but envision an epic slow motion touchdown when this song plays.
“Heart of a Champion” by Nelly
Talk about a pump-up jam. You can’t help but get motivated when this song comes on. “I’m the first pick, the first round, signing bonus profound.” In it to win it.
