Music?

In sports, I always chose music to set the mood going into a game. If it was a big game and I needed to calm my nerves I would play country. If it was a rivalry and I knew I needed to hit someone, I would play something to give me an attitude.


For sales, oddly enough (I'm a chunky white dude) I listen to NWA. They have a strong sound and obviously, they have some attitude - things I think are positives on the phone.


What are your preferences?

Depends on my mood. If I'm trying to get fired up for a big call, I'll try to go with something a bit aggressive. I like the idea of being a fighter and having "walk in" music for when you head to the ring.Β

Huge music fan, however, when I am in prep mode it is full on role play practice: what I know, don't know, and what about what I don't know I don't know... role playing all angles...Β

Nothing quite like country music while driving in the summer with the windows down is there? I used to drive a beat up Ford Explorer from Arlington to Fort Worth (only about 25 miles), sun roof (window?) and windows down playing some good Red Dirt country. Some days when I miss Texas that's the first thing my mind jumps to. That and Jason Boland and the Stragglers going through small towns in the said Ford with my now wife looking at the cotton fields and pump jacks.

I fuckin love me some ignorant rap music. Idk what it is because much like yourself, I am a very caucasian individual myself. Kodak, Young Thug, Uzi, Gucci are always appropriate aux choice imo.

As people on this thread have said, it does depend on the mood. I tend to listen to Radio 1 but when it gets repetitive with all the Chart stuff I listen to a bit ofΒ  new Indie such as Sam fender but then also Fleetwood mac especially the chill old school rock songs.Β
