The Aesthetics Of It All

August is here.  Training camp is around the corner, and it’s just a matter of weeks before the first puck drop will usher in the new season at Rexall Place.

What song would you like to hear blaring out of Rexall’s sound system when the 2011-12 Oilers hit the ice?  Something hard?  Something fun?  A little Tom Jones?

I know the Tom Jones thing happened in Québec on at least one occasion, so don’t look at me like that.

If you haven’t signed up for Twitter, I recommend you do.  Not only do you get to interact with some interesting characters, you can get instant feedback from a large number of people.  Late last night I asked a group of about 450 what song they’d like to hear the Oilers come out to in 2011-12.  I got a lot of solid responses.

I got a few I hadn’t thought of previously

A track – just the right track can help push an already rowdy crowd over the top.  Sure, it’s exciting to see the team come out of the dressing room in a 3-3 tie before the third period starts, but if you can hit it with a track like Welcome To The Jungle, it adds just that extra touch right before faceoff.

What song would you choose to have the Oilers come out to in 2011-12?

Maybe you have an idea for a song for a shootout situation – or a penalty.  Let’s hear your best suggestions.
