Re: POLL: First Music

A small factor is local taste. Buckeye Regional mainly uses Top 40 hits, and I don't think anybody really complains about it. During resets we get the occaisional YMCA, Cotton Eyed Joe, and the Chicken Dance.

So Techno, Rock, Local (Cotten Eye Joe, etc.), and a bit of the others isn't bad either.

Re: POLL: First Music

I voted for rock (but it must be at least 15 years old), techno, metal, and other. The 'other' I would like to hear is a bit of funk, maybe between matches.

Re: POLL: First Music

I think that the music played at events should please everyone, but play more "regional" type music to appeal to the local teams. For example, at the Hawaii regional, music that they prefer in Hawaii should be played. It may or may not be different from what we listen to in the continental US, but it gives a "we're not in kansas anymore" type of feeling.

So, for an Israel event, music that is currently listened to in Israel should be played. (As for me, I put Rock, Techno, Hip Hop, Pop, Local, and other- being line dances enjoyed by the people who like dancing on the field.)

Re: POLL: First Music

So you guys don't like classical eh?

There’s a lot of great classical & orchestral pieces that would be awesome at a FIRST event:
-Ride of the Valkyries
-William Tell Overture
-1812 Overture
-Sabre Dance

And then there’s all the great soundtracks:

-Duel of the Fates (Star Wars ep. I)
-Wheel of Fortune (Pirates of the Caribean)
-Requiem for a Tower
-(I'll think of more)

Techno (preferably trance and drum-and-bass) is always a winner. So is classic rock and hair-metal.

But this is an Israeli Off-season event, so I’d say play what’s popular over there.

Re: POLL: First Music

Play whats popular around there for sure. Although for classic FIRST you can't beat the YMCA.

Personally, I will be very unhappy if Cotton Eye Joe is not played. It's become traditional.

Thumbs down Re: POLL: First Music

Ok, I am just going to say one thing about the music FIRST played at a particular regional.

Multiple members of our team were offended when the regional we attended played several offensive songs such as: "Bringing sexy back" (which happened to be the worst). I don't know if that was just the DJ they had or if the problem has already been taken care of. My only point is that the Regionals should be family friendly as children frequently attend the regionals.

FIRST shouldn't be known for the music it plays but for the actual competition and its mission.

My only point is that the regionals can play whatever they like. Just as long as it is family friendly and not include explicit phrases, inuendos, or anything else of that kind.

We had several other problems with that regional and as a result we have decided not to attend it again.

P.S. I will only give the name and/or date of the regional if I am either giving it to a FIRST official or a FIRST official says that I may do so.

Re: POLL: First Music

With what I said above out of the way.

I have a few ideals when it comes to first music:

1) what I said above

2) they must play: YMCA, Maraina, The Chicken dance, The electric slide, and Kryptonite (well maybe the last one is asking a bit much )

3) It shouldn't be so loud that you can't hear the person next to you. This becomes annoying when you are trying to scout and coordinate spirit in the stands.

Re: POLL: First Music

We know it shouldn't be known for the music, but we can discuss it, just the same as talking about multimedia/webmastering. On-Topic, I must agree that the music is WAY too loud. I couldn't even hear myself think, although the acoustics at Cleveland State is awesome, you barely hear anything happening on the other side of the curtain.

Yes, the classics must remain. I'll post a video of some people dancing to "Cotton Eyed Joe" from last season on YouTube later.

Re: POLL: First Music

At one of our off-season events, our DJ played Also Spratch Zarastrustra (2001 a space odyssey), Duel of the Fates, and the Imperial March during the finals. It was definitely a good matchup.
