Ok for those of us that need some music to either get us all zen during turn in mornings or if you are like me and need your music during turn in times louder than the voices in your head telling you that a pinch of cinnamon or some clam juice is a good last minute adjustment; we all can use a bit of "interesting" music at turn in times.

This thread asks you to put your socioeconomic pre dispositions aside and just share with the rest of us WHAT are your listening favorites to play on the morning of turn ins...no answer is "too" ridiculous. ABBA sold 10 million albums to someone in this country.

Sir Mix a Lot..."I like Big Butts" is an obvious comp classic" but im sure there are many I havent thought of yet. All Genre's are welcome

I'll start it off...

If I am nervous and need some confidence I play an obscure song by the Bob & Tom radio crew called..."Its a great day to whoop somebodys ass"

My wife Wendy demands her Queen sometime after she walks the ribs.

Finally there is nothing that will turn your eternally stalled brisket frown upside down more than the Sweet Tranvestite/Time Warp two in a row from The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack

Ok whos next!!!!! Be Honest!!!!!!

I usually have a Zac Brown Band playlist going that starts with Chicken Fried and ends with Whiskey's Gone. Lets me zone out the outside "noise" and just do my thing.

My Iphone has show tunes, Zak Brown and other country, Glee, Lou Graham, Match box 20, Adele, Joe Cocker...I usually have it on shuffle but when I need to concentrate during turn ins I turn everything off! just me and the voices in my head!

You should listen to the voices!

We generally don't play music, but if we do, it's 80s music. I would personally play Muse or Evanescence but unlikely to get my teammates to go along with that. Instead we just listen to The Basic Barbecue play YMCA and Sweet Transvestite and wonder what Patrick is trying to tell us. :becky:

No specific songs.

Iron Maiden (obviously)
Ozzy
AC/DC
GNR
Volbeat (wife's new favorite)

Any 80s hair bands - we leave our music off and listen to Smokin Hoggz's if we are neighbors. It's most excellent!

How about songs that are played with the time at the event..... say Saturday morning its songs like Final Countdown, Eye of the Tiger....

We need to design a time based play list with key timing songs

Setup songs, Friday afternoon prepping songs, Friday pre cook songs, then its quiet time...Sat AM



How about some suggestions based on timing?

Pat Metheny's "Any Summer Night" does it for me at Turn-In time. I also fancy 80's alternative music. Too many good tunes to list.

I seem to get enough Blues music (which i thoroughly enjoy) from the entertainment @ most of the comps so I prefer it to be more on the rock side of things. If I was a little more memphis-centric I would have to appreciate "Walking in Memphis" by Marc Cohn for the dual meaning.
