This topic came up in discussion last night while watching some of the NZ matches, and I thought it was worth posting.
Some of us felt that the music selection at Worlds last year could have been a tad bit better. We were wondering if there is any chance that we, as the VexForum community, could put together our ideal playlist for Worlds.
There’s the start of my list. If you guys have anything you want to hear at Worlds, toss it up here, maybe we can convince them to add a few songs. Please keep the songs clean (no stepping on anyone’s toes).
If we can’t get these played for the whole tourney, I’ll try to at least get a few pumping at my team’s table.
Imo rap and hip hop is horrible for competitions, it just doesn’t work for robotics competitions (and I just don’t like it :p). I don’t like techno/dubstep either, but I must say it is good for building hype and energy at competitions. I don’t really mind what the music is though, as long as there is a decent variety. There have been some awesome suggestions so far though :D.
I’d say Muse - Uprising (we consider this our team song )
That’s the short version. The full version, with robots, is [here, although I don’t care for the video. They also added a reprise at the end; the original ended with Strongbad muttering to himself, somewhere around the 2:00 mark.
No worries, you aren’t alone. I like her too But it really wouldn’t work well with Karthik…
I’ve already made a few discs of all my favorite songs. Do you think they would play them if I brought them?
I think some good artists/bands are:
Five for Fighting
The All-American Rejects
A few Eminem songs
Plain White T’s
30 Seconds to Mars
We the Kings
Some individual songs
YMCA - Village People
Dancing Queen - ABBA
How Far We’ve Come - Matchbox 20
2012 - Jay Sean
All Star - Smash Mouth
Perfect - Hedley
Pictures of You - The Last Goodnight
Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
I’m Not a Perfect Person - Hoobastank
Pocketful of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield
Rooftops - Lost Prophets
Say What you Need to Say - John Mayer
The Show Goes on - Lupe Fiasco
Iris - Goo Goo Dolls
Don’t Stop Believing - Journey
And on behalf of my team captain and team members:
and Baba Yetu (One person from our team is obsessed with this song)
Oh and it wouldn’t be fair for the international teams (if we were in the same hall)…
Shakira - (Estoy Aqui and such…)
Espacio Sideral - J&J
Nina - Reik
and some Chinese songs
