Hi Amekun,

I don't usually listen to music but I like all sorts of music.

It would be interesting to hear what others listen to.  I quite like it when there is music in the hall when we are playing.  It adds to the atmosphere of the place.

If you want music check out "Ping! The Coull Quartet with Joe Cutler" on You Tube(don't know how to post the link)

Fusion Table Tennis Club in London collaborated with a classical composer to produce a piece of Music/performance art used as part of The 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

This may not be the best spot to ask this question but I thought I would anyway. Which song is more famous?

 

Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N' Roses 

or

American Pie by Don McLean

How about "You Spin me Round"? 

Mainly because  Dead or Alive just about  sums out how I feel after 2 hours of Table Tennis!!!

Come on Amekun, surely American Pie is a legendary song...


Martin Elliget

Sorry Jeff, I'm gonna have to side with Alois on this one - American Pie was huge. Well it was when I was in high school. Never got into Guns 'n' Roses.

Re music and table tennis, listening while practicing, ok, but not while playing a match. During competition, all I want to hear is the sound of the ball against bat and table and my opponent whimpering :)

@Martin no, no, no. Please don't encourage Alois. Although I do like American Pie, with time it just can't compete with Sweet Child O' Mine! @AmekunRaiane, you are right on the money!

i believe that most people will recognize Sweet Child o' mine more :)))

loud enough to be heard but not loud enough to overpower the sound of the ball
