Max Lahiff: My Top Five Tracks

28 January 2016

"Great emotion-evoking songs, skull-crushing pre-game ballads - we've got 'em all," writes Bath Rugby prop Max Lahiff, who becomes the latest player to give us his Top Five Tracks, courtesy of Oppo Digital

1) 'NY State of Mind' by Nas

A true street poet of the highest order. This song is a real throwback to rhythm and poetry - storytelling at its very finest - and paints a vivid picture of ghetto life in NYC. Quite possibly my favourite rap song.

2) 'Gotham's Reckoning' by Hans Zimmer

I'm a massive fan of cinematic music, as they convey emotions with conviction. This particular track is from 'The Dark Knight Rises'. A pre-game song which never fails.

3) 'Promontory' by Trevor Jones

A great track from 'The Last of the Mohicans'. This is just epic. It speaks to the inner warrior. The film's director used it again years later for a sports commercial. 

4) 'The Fellowship' by Howard Shore

When I hear this piece of music I think it inspires a group of people persevering through some kind of all-powerful adversity. A beautiful track from 'Lord of the Rings'.

5) 'Hip Hop' by Dead Prez

I turn the volume right up on this one. That is all. You're welcome.
