Jimmy Conrad Has Better Taste in Music Than You
Kansas City Wizards & US National team defender Jimmy Conrad has better taste in music than you. FACT. That is unless your name is whatever Jack Black's character was called in High Fidelity or you are Rick Rubin.
The big man was cool enough to check in from The Wizards pre-season camp in Florida and drop science on us in the form of this play list. An excellently eclectic selection that runs the gamut from indie atmospherics (Sigur Ros) to dance floor anarchy (Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock), it's structured for the slow build up; a couple of tracks for a few hours before the game, a few to get the head bobbing on the bus to the stadium & in the locker room then an up tempo sprint to get to game-time.
Personally I'm down with the vast majority of the mix, but would it kill him to drop a little Foghat every once in a while? Feel free to download the tracks below from iTunes (linked) or wherever you get your music from.
