let's talk about making an entrance

Thursday, June 3, 2010

this past weekend some friends and i were talking about if we had to choose one song to be our entrance song what would it be?

"entrance song" being... the record stops, the whole party looks to the door and you strut on in.

owning the mother effing room.

what song would you want playing in the background as you make your entry?

for me this was a VERY easy question to answer as i've had this song picked out in my head for a very long time.

mine would be callin' out by lyrics born.



this is the PERFECT song for me.

the way the bass beats starts, the drums come in, the soulful songstresses ask "people are you ready?", and finally lyrics born bringing it.

you simply can't listen to this song without wanting to strut down the catwalk like naomi campbell.


and i may or may not have practiced said strut in my living room on more than one occasion.


stop judging me.

so ladies and gentlemen, what's your perfect make an entrance like whoa song?

  1. My entrance song would be "Got to be real." It makes me feel so SATC when I hear it and I feel like I own the streets when it's playing on my iPod ;)

  3. Biggie Smalls. Hypnotize. The beginning of that little diddy is so bad ass. The initial beat and lyrics (uh, uhh, uhhhh) of that tune would make Bambi strut his sh*t like no otha!

  4. I've had this same conversation many times. And I've given it a lot of thought.

    I always end up picking "Hair of the Dog."

  5. I've always thought my life would be a lot more interesting if I could walk around with a soundtrack playing. I think I'd choose Easy Lover by Phil Collins. Ha ha ha ha. I really do love it though.

  11. Great question!!! And great entrance song!

    Think mine would have to be "U Can Do It" by Ice Cube. Because I CAN put my ass into it . . .

  12. I think about my 'entrance song' a lot because I work in college sports so 'walk up songs' are a regular topic of conversation.

    I'd have to go with Jay-Z "Public Service Announcement". Also, can we please organize some sort of event in which you get to enter to your song because it's AMAZING.

  15. GREAT question.
    OOOOOH so many songs going through my head.
    Mine would be cheese all the way
    I would love to have ZZ TOP with LEGS blasting out loud as I strut my stuff into the room.

    But she´s a lady by Tom Jones is also very classy room entering song.

  23. Great choice. For me, maybe my fave song of all time, Be My Baby, b/c of the awesome drums by Hal Blaine, that start it off.

  24. It's too cheesy to choose Chris Brown's "Forever" (IT'S BEEN DONE, KATE) so... I'll get back to you. I need one of these.

  25. Hmmm, good question. I'll think about it and get back to you. There are a few that I'd have to narrow down to one.

    I like yours! I've never heard of Lyrics Born but I like the sound!

  26. But if I have to pick one off the top of my head, I'm going with Glamorous by Fergie. It's just so me.
