I was contacted last week about DJ’ing in Chengdu at an Olympics-themed event that’s featuring DJ’s from 8 different countries. Naturally, I’ll be there repping the US. Since I already have my flag and bandana ready to go (from Big Love Music Festival), I agreed to participate right away and began thinking about which songs to include in the ultimate set of ironic DJ patriotism. Here’s what’s on the playlist so far:
2012 Olympics Team USA DJ Set
This is for a set of about 45 minutes:
- Steppenwolf – Born to Be Wild
- Jimi Hendrix – Star Spangled Banner
- U.S. Express – Real American
- Guns & Roses – Welcome to the Jungle
- Mortal Kombat – Test Your Might
- Trick Daddy – Let’s Go
- Wu Tang Clan – Triumph
- Red Hot Chili Peppers – Can’t Stop
- The Beach Boys – Surfin’ U.S.A.
If you have any suggestions on songs I should include, leave a comment below.
