Three Tune Tuesday - High School Coach Music
Its another #threetunetuesday by @ablaze this time I'll feature songs my high school coach used to play to try and pump us up for the game.
This first one was an obvious choice as our team mascot was a tiger. We used to practice early in the morning and we would mock this song as "you've got the eyes of the tired and you just want to go back to beeeeed". Then we would get yelled at and sent running back and forth on the basketball court lol.
This next one was played right before the game, I'm not sure why my coach played this other than maybe he liked the military aspect of the music video. Either that or he knew we were gonna get beaten by the other team lol. Also this guy was a retired army colonel so anything military was cool to him.
If we did manage to win this was the obvious choice to play on the way back home on the bus. We usually made it to state playoffs then would get completely demolished by an Apache reservation's basketball team in our school's division. Those guys wouldn't even run plays, all they did was run and pass and sometimes even dunk lol. Thet also had a pro level court due to state funding of the reservation. Our court was something left over from the 20s. Maybe they real key was they had better music to pump them up like Iron Maiden.
That's all for now, thanks for looking :-)

haha these are still staples of the 80s channels out there. I took over the playlist for the car when my kids were playing hockey... lots of Judas Priest, Ozzy, Motorhead. I enjoyed it lol don't know about the rest of the captives in the car.
Definitely need something more aggressive to play for hockey. The survivor guitarist Frankie Sullivan lives somewhere near me, every now and then I see him around lol. Mostly because I go to guitar shows and visit guitar stores around here. He even sold one of his strats at the guitar store I used to do web work for.
Hello friend. Good to see what you have got here.
Nice tunes. You high school coach must be a great lover of music
He only played music related to sports, i don't think he listened to much of anything else.
How good it is to hear these songs and read your anecdotes! I love those personal stories behind each song. And even if they didn't win in basketball, you have fond memories to share. A big greeting.
The only thing our school was really good at was girl's volleyball lol.
Good pump you up songs from your coach, I can see how these would work and I can also see that your coach was a teenager in the 80s most likely!! Ha ha
He was probably in the army at the time those songs came out. Either that or he read a book on how to be a coach and pick the most standard songs to play for sports teams lol.
