New York Red Bulls player, Jan Gunnar Solli, has a flair for the turn tables, DJ-ing at night clubs in his spare time. Offering the Wall Street Journal a peek at his party playlist, here’s what he says gets the people going:

  1. “Spectrum (Say My Name)” by Florence + The Machine (Calvin Harris remix): “A super crowd pleaser,” said Mr. Solli.
  2. “Lies” by Burns (Otto Knows Remix): “There’s a lot of energy in this track, especially the cool synths.”
  3. “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia: “Beautiful sing-along vocals over a fantastic drop. It’ll give you that goosebump feeling.”
  4. “Steel Eyes” by Benji (feat. Sherry St. Germain): “Listen to the sick break and how the guitar and Sherry’s voice just get under your skin.”

Players and their “passion projects”. You dig, Kickettes?

    That Spectrum remix is perhaps the best party song right now.

    Also I read somewhere that Switzerland's Daniel Gygax is a DJ too, but I dunno if there are any of his playlists around the interwebs.

    Totally off topic but Kickette why no story on Giroud singing the Hey Jude chant that Arsenal fans have made for him at a press conference in France? He's your number 1 Hottie and that video needs to spread worldwide.

    That is kind of adorable…

    speaking of player playlists. I love that AC Roma does this: http://www.asroma.it/en/team/music.html
    Although a disturbing amount of Guns 'N Roses and John Mayer, a DISTURBING AMOUNT.
