It’s Greg Thomas’ Ultimate Tailgating Party Song Playlist for an Alabama Gameday
The energy is contagious for an Alabama gameday in Tuscaloosa, and it calls for the right playlist to fit the mood! Let me share what could be very well be the ultimate tailgating party song playlist to get you warmed up and ready to yell, Roll Tide!
The list includes competitive celebration type tunes, which fits right into sports. I'm talking about stuff like, 'Centuries' by Fall Out Boy and Nelly's 'Number One.'
'Seven Nation Army' from the White Stripes, Blur's 'Song 2' and 'Welcome to the Jungle' by Guns 'N Roses are clear 'go to' songs heard in the stadium, and the infectious energy will have the guys ready for a pick up game of TACKLE football at your tailgate.
Also making the cut, are sing along songs everyone at your tailgate knows every word to. 'Hey Ya' from Outkast, Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy,'and 'Uptown Funk' from Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars fits this label. The ladies will be happy with these 'go to' songs.
Landing in the top spot, the #1 song on my playlist is the MUST HAVE song for an Alabama fan, 'Sweet Home Alabama.' Rather than Lynyrd Skynyrd's version, I'm going with the cover by the Velcro Pygmies. The band which loves visiting Tuscaloosa has created a masterpiece by adding more power guitar and 'Roll Tide' to the chorus.
Here's my ranked list. As they say, everyone has an opinion. I'd love to hear yours. If you love the list or if I missed something, drop a comment in the box below and ROLL TIDE!
