It’s that time of year again Baylor fans! We’ve found ourselves back in football season and it feels so good. With 5 home games left this season, it’s important to keep up morale for our Bears. And what better way than with an excellent playlist? The Bundle asked on Instagram for your favorite gameday songs, and I’ve had so much fun going through the submissions. Here’s the completed playlist!
- Shotgun- George Ezra
A feel-good, upbeat song that’s great for getting ready for a fun night of Baylor Football.
Favorite Lyric: “The sun it changed in the atmosphere”
- Give Yourself a Try- The 1975
This song fits perfectly in that space between a hype-up song and a more mellow song like Shotgun. It’s also unapologetically optimistic, which will set the perfect attitude for game day.
Favorite Lyric: “So just give yourself a try, won’t you give yourself a try”
- Sucker- The Jonas Brothers
This iconic comeback song is loved by virtually everyone in our generation and it’s sure to get anyone feeling good (Nick is still the best Jonas Brother change my mind).
Favorite Lyric: “We change the weather, yeah I’m feeling heat in December when you’re ’round me”
- Boys- Lizzo
Lizzo is well on her way to becoming an iconic household name, and this song is a clear example of why. If you’re going to a game with a group of your best girls, this song is perfect.
Favorite Lyric: “You tryna play coy, like a Gameboy?”
- Old Town Road Remix- Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus and Mason Ramsey
What can I say, undoubtedly the song of the year, Old Town Road is a game day must.
Favorite Lyric: “Ridin’ on a horse, ha you can whip your Porsche, I been in the valley. You ain’t been up off that porch, now”
- Simple- Florida Georgia Line
Country music is a tailgate staple, and nothing screams game day quite like Florida Georgia Line. This country song is true to Nashville but has enough of a pop music beat to please almost everyone.
Favorite Lyric: “We’re just simple like a six-string, The way this world was meant to be. Like laughin’ love, make a lot out of a little”
- This Is Our House- Bon Jovi
As the game draws nearer, this Bon Jovi classic is perfect for pumping up Baylor pride and getting ready to defend our beloved McLane stadium.
Favorite Lyric: “This is our house these are my people, listen, this is my town”
- Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond
A good sing-along song is a vital part of any game day, and Sweet Caroline is quite possibly the most popular one ever. Turn it up to bring any crowd together.
Favorite Lyric: “Sweet Caroline, good times never seemed so good”
- Don’t Stop Me Now- Queen
This Queen classic is perfect for keeping morale at a high.
Favorite Lyric: “I’m burnin’ through the sky, yeah two hundred degrees that’s why they call me Mister Fahrenheit”
- Bad Guy- Billie Eilish
This song is one of my favorites because it’s perfect to dance to, gameday dance party anyone?
Favorite Lyric: “I do what I want when I’m wanting to. My soul? So cynical”
- I Don’t Care- Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber
The sweet lyrics of this song are fun to sing along to in the stadium, and the voices of pop superstars Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber make it especially catchy.
Favorite Lyric: “ ‘Cause I don’t care as long as you just hold me near, you can take me anywhere”
- Pocketful of Sunshine- Natasha Benningfield
This throwback 2000’s favorite is all about confidence and good vibes. It’ll be the perfect track to end the night when the Bears (hopefully) take home a win!
Favorite Lyric: “Do what you want but you’re never gonna break me”
