Dancing to Cha Cha Slide.
The right song can make you feel just about anything. If you're out on a date with a beautiful lady (first off, you probably don't read this site if you can get a date), you can pop in a little John Legend, 112, or Tyrese to set the mood. If you're trying to party hard-y, it shouldn't be a problem if you've got some Jay Sean or New Boyz at your disposal.
So we've established what you can listen to if you're feeling seductive or if you're ready to rip the dance floor (Derek is especially proficient at that), but what do we throw on the ol' 8-track player when we watch this hilariously mediocre 76ers team on a nightly basis?
I couldn't narrow my choices down to just one song, so I've come up with a pair of tunes that accurately capture my feelings about the 2011-2012 Philadelphia 76ers.
Check out my jams after the jump!
"Build Me Up Buttercup" -- The Foundations
The first thing that comes to mind when I hear this song is a friend of mine ripping a door off its hinges in Elkton Hall after the Giants beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XVII, but that's neither here nor there.
For the first half of this season, the Sixers were playing some damn good basketball and getting me excited about being a fan again, not something that's easy to do. My emotions were high and I was actually convinced they could makes some noise come playoff time with at least a first round win as hopefully the 3 or 4 seed. Shame on me for getting my hopes up. Ever since then, well, you've seen what's happened. I think this songs describes my relationship with this season's version of the Sixers perfectly.
"Waiting on the World to Change" -- John Mayer
Yep, the other song that perfectly describes my emotions comes from the male version of Sheryl Crow himself, John Mayer (and not because he looks like a kid who lived on my floor in Centreville Hall freshman year).
in this particular situation, the world represents the mindset of the Sixers front office. As Jordan pointed out in his brilliant piece of work yesterday, the Sixers have set up shop in Medicoretown, USA for the past decade and have done nothing to change it. So here we are as fans, waiting for that to change. Will the new ownership group try to change this or stick with the "exciting/young/stabmeintheneckplease" mindset that most of us are tired of hearing? We'll just have to wait until the summer to find out, I guess.
What songs would you guys choose to describe your feelings towards this team?
