Music Monday: Hosted by the SMC Gaels


This week, we get the distinct privilege of having Music Monday hosted by the St. Mary’s College Women’s Lacrosse team (NCAA D1; Moraga, CA).

From Katy Perry, Rhianna & Kesha to Matisyahu, Eminem and of course, Mac Miller, these Lady Gaels listen to a wide range of tunes. Some of the songs below are locker room tracks, while others might be what the girls sing to on karaoke night in Moraga.

Enjoy the selection below. I know the girls worked hard to bring you the best – especially this first one by a Gaels player!

“I Love Laxin” by Whitty Cent

This song is by a Gaels player. She may be the only rapper in Women’s NCAA D1 Lacrosse.

“Firework” by Katy Perry

“Who’s That Chick” by Rihanna

“Knock Knock” by Mac Miller

Lax bros love Mac too.

“Freak the Freak Out” By Victorious Cast

“Blow” by Ke$ha

“Slacker” by Tech N9ne

“Evacuate the Dance Floor” by Cascada

“Futuristic Lover” by Katy Perry

“Dat New New” by Kid Cudi

“King Without a Crown” by Matisyahu

Classic NorCal tunes.

“Whip My Hair” by Willow Smith

Yes, that’s Will Smith’s baby girl…

“Lose Yourself” by Eminem

A personal favorite… These girls have good taste.


  1. Designing good pre-game mixes seems like a lost art at times.

    I mean, I like ACDC et al as much as the next guy, but as with most great things, you get tired of it.

    “There comes a time, when the jewels cease to sparkle, when the gold loses its luster”, as the Aquilonian emperor put it so eloquently.

    Obviously I don’t need my pre-game mix to allude to my “indy cred” and how could it, since it does feature a great amount of Kanye.

    That is why, I really enjoy this list. Not my cup of tea, really, but does diverge a great deal from what I usally hear blasting before our games.

    I want music “to crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and to hear the lamentation of their women. “
