I don’t know about you guys, but every year I ask myself the same question. “What am I going to put on my tailgate mixtape?” I know what you’re thinking, “tailgate mixtape? Why doesn’t he just play the pregame radio, some other station or just plug in his iPod and press randomize?” Well, there’s a simple answer for that, the pregame radio doesn’t get people pumped up, the normal radio (for lack of a better word) sucks and the iPod has way too many songs and most of them aren’t very good. I’ve talked to a number of friends and fans and asked them their opinions and this is what we’ve come up with.
The ideas were taken from my friends that are with me here in Tallahassee and then from suggestions taken from the tailgate crew in Jacksonville (if you are wondering, its spot Y24 in the Tailgaters Parking Lot). We had a few requirements in mind for each of the songs.
- Had to be about Jacksonville, the Jaguars or something along those lines
- Had to be relatively clean, because, hey, you never know when Grandma or your little 10 year old nephew might show up
- Well, actually, just those two were requirements.
Without further adieu, here’s my tailgate mixtape….
That’s what I have so far. What do you guys think?
