Sports Music

Share Button


I must preface this post by disclaiming that I have only attended one mainstream professional sporting events but a handful of drag racing events, but those are too loud for music.

We do watch a lot of sports on television.  We are glued to the tv or computer for professional football, catch a MLB game here or there, and are currently following the NY Rangers in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  Even a casual watcher will notice the various music you hear in the background and remark on it.

I was just saying to my husband the other day that I think NHL hockey has the best music out of all of the sports we watch.  We’ve heard some White Stripes, Led Zeppelin and other great bands.  Plus, you’ve also got the awesome organ that I swear was playing Hava Nagila the other night.  (Fair warning – if you go to a church that plays organ music while in the midst of hockey playoffs, you will start to think you’re hearing hockey music at church.  Does make it far more entertaining though.)  Even the corny stadium favorites like Twilight Zone sound cool on the organ.

We’ve been known to make fun of the NFL stadium music.  They do have some good songs but usually the cheesy outweighs the good.  Any music does entertain us when there is lags in play, as there usually is in football.

Do you enjoy music while attending or watching sporting events?  Do you think it adds to or detracts from the play?

    I think music makes a lot of things fun, especially when there’s a whole crowd of people. Plus it’s what gets everyone hyped!

    I grew up going to minor league baseball games with an organ player. My grandad was buddies with him, so I got to put in requests at every game. So much fun! Now I love the batter up music players choose. Hockey games are always so energized by the music and game pace.

    I think music really gets the crowd excited when you’re at the event! It can get a little annoying though when you’re at home watching on the tv……or maybe I’m just jealous that I’m not there and it’s no fun doing the wave with just two people!! 😉

    I love the music at all games. Of course I am partial to baseball but for any sport the music adds so much to the feeling and experience. We do alot of games – any sport with our family.

    Sometimes it really does rev up the crowd! Especially at the Red Sox games with the DropKick Murphys.
