Walkout songs are such an interesting concept. They are often used for athletes as an entrance song, psyching them up, announcing their arrival, setting the tone for who they are and what they are ready to bring to the field/stadium/ring/etc. I think a walk-out song can tell you a lot about these athletes or at least about how they want to represent themselves.
For over a year now I have developed a relationship with kickboxing. I was hooked after one class. It's an awesome workout but even more than that, I love learning the technique and fight strategy behind every move. It's a lot to learn but I keep working towards the goal of my imaginary fight. Honestly, I struggle with the idea of ever fighting but am fascinated by it, all the same. And MMA fighters definitely have their walkout songs. It may even be my favourite part of watching a fight.
One day, before kickboxing, a discussion began about walkout songs and we began to joke how we all need a walkout song for our everyday lives. Just imagine, the door opens and as you take your first step outside for the day loud speakers are blaring your song - announcing your arrival to the world. Hello world, I'm awake and I'm coming!
I love it! Here's my walk-out song, what's yours?
