In the car on the way to a tournament or match, is there that one song that just gets you ready for it?

Mine is Tom Petty's Free Fallin' or Usher's Yeah.

LL Cool J:
Don't call it a comeback
I been here for years
Rockin my peers and puttin suckas in fear
Makin the tears rain down like a MON soon
Listen to the bass go BOOM.....
Explosion overpowerin
Over the competition I'm towerin
Wreckin shop when I drop these lyrics that'll make you call the cops
Don't you dare stare, you betta move
Don't ever compare
Me to the rest that'll all get sliced and diced
Competition's payin the price

I'm gonna knock you out [HUUUH!!!]
Mama said knock you out [HUUUH!!!]

I'm not even a rap fan, but this is a good pump up song. I think of this song and laugh...then when I hit a winner or a good shot, I think "I'm gonna knock you ouuuuut...Mama said knock you ouuuuuut...."

I actually had a couple of matches for USTA to play, and got pumped up while driving to the club with:

Garbage- "Vow".... "I came to shut you up, I came to drag you down, I came around to tear your little world apart"- from their first album

Oasis- "The Hindu Times"...." I get up, when I'm down, I can't swim, but my soul won't drown"- from Heathen Chemistry

and Queen -"I Want It All"... from their album "The Miracle"...

Amazing what goes on the mp3 player for a mix, isn't it.

For an English project last year, me and some friends recreated The Great Gatsby into film. I was Daisy. But anyway, during filming we incorporated music Eye of the Tiger was one song we used as was Bohemian Rhapsody. Haha good times.

I go for "zoning" music; the kind that calms me down and centers me. It has to be very familiar, typcially melodic, with a serene quality. If you ever saw the movie Gladiator--or even Lord of the Rings for that matter--you know what I'm talking about. The kind of music that plays in the background and lets me focus on the task ahead.

For general listening, I'm partial to Dylan, Floyd, Croce, Marley and a host of other guys past their prime, sometimes dead or mostly dead, but always great.

03-24-2005, 11:14 PM
ok this may not be a song that'll pump u up but.. man this song teaches me something.. i was sad the first time i heard this song.. i think its sweet!! read the lyrics and ull know why:

She was on her way to becoming a college graduate
Wouldn't even stop to talk to the average kid
The type of latina I'd sit and contemplate marriage with
**** the horse and carriage ****, her love was never for hire
Disciplined, intellectual beauty's what I desire
Flyer than Salma Hayek or Jennifer Lopez
Everyone told me, kickin' it to her was hopeless
At first I just thought, she didn't mess with broke kids
The thug *****z always talking about, how they smoke kids
But the rich-sniff-coke kids got no play
"I'm not even interested" is what her body language would say
Everyone around the way, gave up trying to get in it
It didn't matter how good your game was, she wasn't with it
On the block, *****es was jealous, but wouldn't admit it
Talk ****, and deny to everyone that they did it
'Cause they regreted the long list of *****z that they let hit it
And no one ever gave them **** except McDonald's and did-dick
Smoking weed with thoughts of envy, whenever they lit it
She smoked intelligently and they bit it, always trying to copy
But when they tried to use her vocab, they sounded sloppy
She had a style, all her own, respectful and pure
I was sick in the head for her, and there wasn't a cure

Don't you know that, time waits for no man
Not fate, it's all planned
I'm blessed just to know you
I've loved and I've lost just to hold you all night
Can't find, a reason why
God came, to you and I
If I had the chance again, I'd never let you go
Hold tight to your love, 'cause you never know

Her eyes are brown and beautiful, yet empty and sad
I used to talk to her occasionally, and she was glad
That I wasn't just another ***** trying to get in it
So every now and then we'd stop and talk for a minute
I didn't have a gimmick so the minutes turned to hours
On her birthday, I gave her a poem with flowers
Then I took her out to dinner after her cousin's baby shower
We talked about, power to the people and such
We spent more time together but it was never enough
I never tried to sneak a touch, or even cop a feel
I was too interested, in keeping it real
Perfectly honest and complete, she would always call me "carino,"
And never Technique, bought me a new book to read every 2 or 3 weeks
Forever changing the expression of my thoughts when I speak
It was because of her, I even deaded all of my freaks
She convinced me, to stop hangin' out on the streets
To stop robbin' and stealin', from people like you
Instead I took her out to the Apollo and the Bronxu
We sailed in Barrio (?) and the Metropolitan too
Got to the point when I was either with her or my crew
So I decided one day, to tell her my feelings was true
I couldn't live without her so I told her, facing my fears
But honey's only response, was a face full of tears
She could only sob hysterically, holding me tight
I tried to speak, but she wouldn't stop until I left sight
I felt like a moth who got himself too close to the light
Except I didn't burn, I turned cold after that night

I went on with my life, college and my career
Ended up locked up like an animal for a year
Where the C.O.'s talk to you like they were the overseer
Then I got sent to the hole, when my exit was near
At night in my cell, I'd close my eyes and I'd see her
Hold her close in my dreams, but when I woke she disappeared
Just an empty cell until the state gave me parole in the summer
came back, in tact and on track
But the fact of the matter, is I still felt cold
Even after my mother, hugged me, cryin' at home
My real *****z would catch me thinkin', out of my zone
****in' lots of different women, but I still felt alone
Relatively well-known around the New York underground
But I kept thinking of her and how we used to be down
The sound of her voice, and the beautiful smell of her hair
Though gone physically, somehow it was still there
I had to do something, because the **** was too much to bear
So I went and visited the building where she used to live
The world looks a lot different after you do a bid
The way your life done changed
While primitive minds (are) still stuck in the same game
Like her cousin who was on the corner slangin' cocaine
Stepped in the lobby and tapped the button next to her last name
Her mom buzzed me up and hugged me up, like a mother oughta
But her facial expression changed, when I asked about her daughter

She told me that there was a note for me, that was left behind
She had left it there waiting, for such a long time
I was inclined to ask about it but she brought it up first
I saw a tear swelling up in her eye, and then she cursed
She told me where the letter was and I started thinking the worst
Reversed my position, stepped over and opened the door
And sure enough there was an envelope with my name on the floor
"Nobody loves you more than me carino" is what the letter said

"By the time you get to read this, I'll probably be dead
But when you left in '97 a part of me went to Heaven
I thank God at least I got to know what love really was
But it hurt me, to see what true love really does
'Cause even though we never made love, you were all that there was
It was because I loved you so much that I had to make you leave
You made me doubt the way I thought, you made me want to believe
And then I slipped up, and I let you get close to me
It was hard to not be openly when people spoke to me
This was not the way I thought my life was supposed to be
Baby don't you see, I had a blood transfusion that left me with HIV
Hoped the end exists for me since late in 1993
I died a virgin, I wish I could've given myself to you
I cried in the hospital because there was no one else but you
Promise that you'll meet me in paradise inevitably
No matter what, I'll keep your love forever with me"

What happened for the rest of the day is still a blur
But I remember wishing that I was dead, instead of her
She was buried on August 3rd
The story ends without a sequel
And now you know why Technique, don't ****ing fall in love with people
Hold the person that you love closely if they're next to you
The one you love, not the person that'll simply have sex with you
Appreciate them to the fullest extent, and then beyond
'Cause you never really know what you got, until it's gone

If you want to calm down Zero7 would be a very good choice.

Someone mentioned a Garbage song, one of my favorite bands! :) Vow is sick, the "Torn Apart Remix" kicks ***! :cool:

1. Pumping For Jill -- Iggy Pop
When I'm asleep, you touch my feet
You let me know, that I am no creep
Because I love you, you are for real
I'm gonna stay here, pumpin' for Jill

At the gas station where I work
Everyone treats me just like dirt
And nobody offers me a tip
I'm gonna stay here, pumpin' Jill's hips


2. Pump It Up -- Elvis Costello & the Attractions

3. Your Shillelegh Lights My Candle -- Enya

DP, thanks. Always up for a little Iggy Pop.

I'm still laughing about Enya, but I also feel a little bit smarter now that I finally know how to spell shillelegh.

Strangely enough, it's the Little River Bands greatest hits. I was somewhere on the road to get to a tourney and I got it at the store and put it in and now I always play it when I drive to tourneys that are usually about an hour away. Every time I hear any of their songs now anywhere it gives me that weird excited feeling of getting ready to play a tourney match.

I can't believe no one's said this one yet: Remember the Name by Fort Minor. Chorus is:

This is 10% luck
20% skill
15% concentrated power of will
5% pleasure
50% pain
And 100% reason to remember the name

Actually I haven't joined a USTA league yet but if I were on my way to a match I would definitely be playing "Eye of the tiger."

If I won I'd be singing along to "We are the champions," during the ride home, especially after winning a doubles match. :)

Wow, Paul Gilbert and the Black Eyed Peas mentioned in the same thread?

depends on my mood. If I'm going for casual hitting with just having a good time being the goal, I'll listen to something easy, some dispatch, Derek Trucks, Santana, or some 311. If I'm going out and want to be aggressive on court, I usually play heavy metal in the vein of Jag Panzer, early Metallica, or something industrial like Rammstein (hard to not get pumped up listening to Du Hast).
