With the NHL ready to hit the ice, and Hockey Night in Canada ready to launch its 60th season on Saturday, we asked the man behind Coach’s Corner to set his mp3 player to “random” and tell us which five tracks came up first.
Don Cherry’s playlist reveals an affinity for Sinatra, 1983 Lincolns and musicals. Judging by his love of Deadmau5, he’s also still in touch with his techno/electronic roots.
1.“The Way You Look Tonight”
(from the 1936 film Swing Time).
“Fred Astaire reminds me of class personified, with Ginger Rogers.”
“A very romantic song, chokes me up when I listen to it.”
3.“In the Still of the Night”
“I like to listen to this song when I'm driving in my 1983 white Lincoln -- with white leather interior and plush red dash/carpet, with a boom box in the back.”’
4.“Sharp Dressed Man”
“I think this one speaks for itself.”
5.“Ghost N Stuff”
“I like all of Deadmau5’s music, but only play it is in my black 1983 Lincoln – gets me in a pumped-up mood.”
What do you think of Cherry's playlist? Let us know on the blog!
