What I really wanted to do this week was cultivate a playlist of game day songs relating to falcons.
That thought started and ended with Billy Falcon’s semi-hit from 1991, “Power Windows.”
Who knew that falcons were in such short lyrical supply?
So instead I asked some friends and Twitter followers for their best tailgating song suggestions and received some familiar – but always good for the adrenaline – responses: Queen’s “We Will Rock You”; AC/DC’s “For Those About To Rock (We Salute You); Beastie Boys, “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)”; .38 Special’s “Hold on Loosely.”
I decided to stick with Georgia artists for my list (I threw Falcon’s “Power Windows” in there just for the sake of nostalgia), which of course, kicks off with the command of the week.
So rise up, folks, rock the Dome on Sunday and share with us what you plan to blare before the game.
“Rise Up” >
Billy Falcon, “Power Windows”
Cee Lo Green, “Forget You” (clean version, though some fans will undoubtedly prefer the original)
Collective Soul, “Gel”
Big Boi with Ludacris and T.I., “In the A” (language alert)
B.o.B., “So Good”
The B-52s, “Funplex” (yeah, “Love Shack” is the obvious choice, but do you really want to hear it again?)
OutKast, “ATLiens” (language alert)
