Football Pump-Up and Tailgate Party Songs

The sound of Brats’ sizzling and trash talking can mean just one thing:  American football season is in full swing and it’s time to get pumped up! But you can’t host a legitimate tailgate party without music, and our cloud-based music delivery service makes sure you have the baddest tunes on hand.

The Sound of the Olympics: From Opening Ceremony Music to Athletes’ Favorite Bands

Get ready for an ear-tastic explosion of music Friday when the 2012 Summer Olympics kick off in London and are broadcast around the world. Olympic mix-masters say they’ve compiled 2,012 songs to play over the two-week course of the Games. Eighty-six of those will just be for the splashy opening ceremony, a mashup of iconic British songs from the Sex Pistols to Adele called “A Symphony of British Music” played against an English countryside backdrop.

MyMusicCloud invites you to get in on the fun by earmarking your favorite songs and making your own Olympic music power playlist. Download them from our music store (search 11 million songs) or upload your own recordings to our cloud-based music storage and delivery system from your private collection.

Wondering where to start? How about some of the bands the Olympic athletes are listening to?

U.S. women’s soccer star Hope Solo tells Self magazine her favorite pump-up song is “Ragged Mile” by the John Butler Trio. Sixteen-time U.S. swimming medalist Michael Phelps says he gets pumped to Afrojack, Avicii, and Skrillex. His teammate Ryan Lochte prefers Lil Wayne and Jay-Z. U.S. teen gymnasts McKayla Maroney and Jordyn Wieber adore Justin Bieber, while Gabby Douglas rocks out to Beyoncé and Rihanna. And if soccer sensation Neymar De Silva scores a goal for Brazil, expect to hear singer Michel Telo’s “Ai Se Eu Te Pego!” fill the stadium. (It translates into “Oh, If I Catch You!” in English.)

As we mentioned earlier this month, official Olympics theme songs have also been recorded by Muse, Elton John vs. Pnau, Delphic, electronic gurus the Chemical Brothers, and rapper Dizzee Rascal. At the Games themselves, the Scissor Sisters and Rizzle Kicks will play surprise gigs for spectators, and Blur, New Order and The Specials will rock out at the closing ceremony on August 12. So show your national pride and rock out with the jocks this Olympics season!
