Mainoo, Pickford & Shaw Pick Their Pre-Match Playlists With Apple Music - SoccerBible


Many times, we see athletes coming to the stadium before a game, with headphones on, trying to focus and get in the right mindset. Have you ever wondered what they are listening to? Wonder no more! With Apple Music's assistance, we have three England players' playlists for you to explore. Kobbie Mainoo, Jordan Pickford, and Luke Shaw have each chosen their favorite songs, creating a diverse list that reveals what they are listening to during their EURO journey.

To start off, Kobbie Mainoo has become a breakout star for the England team. Just six months ago, he wasn't even considered for the tournament squad by anyone, but now he is expected to be a key player in the starting lineup for the semi-final match against The Netherlands.

"Music helps me prepare mentally," Mainoo told Apple Music. "I prefer to be calm before a game. I listen to music in the car and in the locker room - rap or melodic rap. Songs like 'Gold Roses' by Rick Ross, 'Catch the Sun' by Lil Baby, and 'Weekends in the Perry's' by Benny the Butcher really help me relax. I enjoy the vibe they give off. They are very laid-back songs."

He has put together a fun playlist with songs from Arctic Monkeys, Elvis Presley, Gala, Oasis, and Queen. He explained why he chose these songs.

Ultrabeat's song "Pretty Green Eyes" In the blog post, we will discuss the track "Pretty Green Eyes" by Ultrabeat.

I have a close relationship with Ian Redman from Ultrabeat, and I have always been a fan of this song. He even came to DJ at my wedding.

Armand Van Helden, the artist who created the song "My My My"

This song makes me think of my brother. It's his all-time favorite. Whenever I hear it, I always call him.

Elton John's song "I Suppose That's the Reason They Call It the Blues"

I just had to include this because it's a fantastic song and also from one of the shows I love, Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere. The part that always gets me is when Paddy starts playing the harmonica.

This reminds me of when we used to play pool at my cousin's house as kids. Whenever someone got eliminated while playing killer, we would sing this song.

Heard of the song "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond?

"It reminds me of the Euros [in 2021] and how the entire audience joined in singing the song as we made it to the final. Incredible."

Gigi D’Agostino's hit song "L’Amour Toujours" is a timeless classic that never fails to get people on their feet and dancing. The infectious beat and catchy melody make it one of those songs that everyone knows and loves. Whether you're at a party, club, or just listening to music at home, "L’Amour Toujours" is sure to bring some fun and energy to any occasion. Gigi D’Agostino's talent as a DJ and producer shines through in this song, and it's no wonder why it has remained a favorite for so many years. So next time you need a pick-me-up or just want to have a good time, put on "L’Amour Toujours" and let the music take you away.

"My preferred stadium track. Helps me focus and reminds me of my childhood."

The song Megan and I danced to at our wedding was our very first dance together. I have to include this in the blog or I'll be in trouble.

Shaw's playlist is a varied combination of hip-hop, Afro-house, reggaeton, melodic house, dancehall, and other genres that helps him feel energized and focused before starting a workout.
