We love music here at RBR almost as much as we love football. So, in an attempt to help waste away the last bit of the offseason, I bring you the latest (and dare I say greatest) stupid idea for a series of posts: The SEC as soundtrack. In order to make things more interesting for myself, I've given myself some parameters:
- Only music from 1990 to the present may be included...largely to prevent people telling me I should use "Deacon Blues" or "Sweet Home Alabama" for the Tide's song.
- It has to be something I actually listen to
So, with that in mind, I'm going to start with the SEC East and go through it alphabetically and then do the West in reverse alpha order so we're the last one revealed. Today's entry: Florida (and the lyrics are NSFW, though I doubt anyone will be able to decipher many of the words in that bit...)
"Swamp Song" by Tool. Originally chosen because of the obvious association of the word "swamp," the lyrics seem to be pretty apt to describe Florida's home field advantage and to the feeling most opponents must feel when facing the juggernaut that is the Florida Gators
You're dancing in quicksand.
Why don't you watch where you're wandering?
Why don't you watch where you're stumbling?
You're wading knee deep and going in.
And you may never come back again.
