Get ready music loving laxers – we’ve got DJ Peet Poillon in the house today!
We’ve asked Maverik’s Peet Poillon to play us a few of his favorite songs for pre-game, post-game and relaxing. Check out his choices + his explanations, and recommend a song to Peet in the comments section below!
Jay-Z – “First Song“
I like to listen to this song pregame before I go out because it has a good beat and can get anybody ready to go out and perform like they still have to prove themselves. Everytime I play I try to play like I am trying to reprove what I can do and that can be powerful.
Wiz Khalifa – “This Plane“
Wiz is a Pittsburgh guy, and this song just gets anybody pumped up. It’s relaxing with a good beat, and can get anybody focused. I like to visualize before games and this song helps me visualize exactly what is going to happen on the field.
Michael Jackson – “Billie Jean“
We used to listen to this tune after wins at UMBC in the locker room. Gets you ready to go for the post game festivities. I think it was a tradition set fourth by some of the guys that had graduated. A team mate Jordan Pierce had a mean MJ dance.
Kanye West – “Touch the Sky“
Fun tune after a big win. Again gets me ready to go after the game. Obviously really tired but ready to have some fun, this song gets the team juiced up.
MGMT – “Electric Feel“
This is a good song for just relaxing and trying to get a few things done. It is relaxing and just a fun beat. I enjoy listening to this on the way to airport or on the plane.
Ground Up – “Nice to Meet You“
Lighter song by a group out of Philadelphia. Good tune, this group finds some cool beats in all of their songs. Kind of poppy I enjoy listening to it.
The Strokes – “You only live once”
This a good song, pretty light. I like a lot of the strokes songs. It is an upbeat song with a rockish feel to it.
