    Help needed urgently!

    Just to introduce myself I am fourteen years old and a keen cricketer. PArt time I also DJ.

    Well here is the problem I have been asked to do the live PA at my cricket club and they want me to play music when batsmen get out etc like at 20/20 matches. They are having a twenty twenty tournament and I need to know the songs that are played at TWENTY TWENTY MATCHES.

    I need to know the names and artists for the following

    The songs for 4's and 6's

    The tracks when a batsmen gets out
    1)one goes na na nar ye hay hay etc
    2)the other where it goes something like - i will go back(Sorry if that is totally wrong!)
    and any other tracks they play.

    Also I thought I would play the Queen track- Another One Bites the dust.
    when a batsmen gets out!

    And where can I get the Twenty Twenty theme tune from?

    Additionally they want music when a batsmen walks out. What songs did they play at the twenty twenty matches?

    Anything other songs that have been used would be great!

    Thanks for any help,

    Andrew

    how about trying to find fitting songs not used in the real 20/20

    The first song is Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye...done by loads of people but most famously by Bananarama

    I think a version of 10cc's Dreadlock Holiday is also used

    I think another one they might use is 'Howzat' by Sherbert

    But if I were you (I too am a DJ) I would find other songs to make it a bit more different...maybe also try and find out what songs the batsmen like, so you could play them when they go out to bat (like they did in NZ a bit ago)
    rave down, hit the ground

    Yeah, it's 10cc's Dreadlock Holiday "I don't like cricket" that's used a lot. I don't remember the others because I've not got Sky and my only Twenty20 experience was at the final last year at Trent Bridge [/rant]

    I suggest you get a few choruses from upbeat, high-tempo tracks and use them for the boundaries ("Hey Baby"?!)

    As for the batsmen on their way to the middle, I'd ask them (or send letters to the sides, etc, or get a selection for the day) which tracks they'd like individually. Personally I'd go for "Mr Brightside" right now, and I know Tuffers went for "Cigarettes and Alcohol" in NZ a few years back.

    I've dug out a list of what different players used during the VB Series in 2003-04 (India/Australia/Zimbabwe)

    Australia
    Ricky Ponting - Chemical Heart by Grinspoon
    Adam Gilchrist - On My Mind by Powderfinger
    Michael Bevan - Final Countdown by Europe
    Andy Bichel - Holy Grail by Hunters and Collectors
    Nathan Bracken - Addicted to Bass
    Michael Clarke - It's My Life by Bon Jovi
    Jason Gillespie Gel by Collective Soul
    Ian Harvey - Leaps and bounds
    Matthew Hayden - Get Set by Taxi Ride
    Brad Hogg Thunderstruck by AC/DC
    Brett Lee Locomotion by Kylie Minogue
    Damien Martyn - Bad Boyz II (Soundtrack)
    Andrew Symonds - Waltzing Matilda by John Williamson
    Brad Williams - Are You Gonna Be My Girl? by Jet

    India
    Rahul Dravid - Forever Young by Alphavane/Rod Stewart
    Sourav Ganguly - I'm a believer by Smash Mouth
    Virender Sehwag - Let's get loud by Jennifer Lopez
    VVS Laxman - Let me entertain you by Robbie Williams
    Murali Kartik - Spinning around by Kylie Minogue
    Ajit Agarkar - Beautiful Day by U2
    Parthiv Patel - Get what you give by New Radical
    Irfan Pathan - It's my life by Bon Jovi
    Sachin Tendulkar - No Song by No Artist
    Lakshmipathy Balaji - Born to try by Delta Goodrem
    Sanjay Bangar A Little less conversation by Elvis Presley
    Anil Kumble - No Song by No Artist
    Yuvraj Singh - You really got me - The Kinks
    Hemang Badani - Are you gonna go my way by Lenny Kravitz

    Zimbabwe
    Heath Streak - Beautiful Day by U2
    Tatenda Taibu - Shake your body by Shy FX
    Andy Blignaut Freestyler by Bomfunk
    Stuart Carlisle Elevation by U2
    Sean Ervine - Let me entertain you by Robbie Williams
    Grant Flower - History repeating by Propella Heads
    Travis Friend - It's my life by Bon Jovi
    Douglas Hondo - Where's your head at by Basement Jaxx
    Stuart Matsikenyeri - Better Man by Robbie Williams
    Blessing Mahwire - I'm a believer by Smash Mouth
    Ray Price - Can't get you out of my head by Kylie Minogue
    Vusi Sibanda- Life's like a rollercoaster by Ronan Keating
    Mark Vermeulen A Little less conversation by Elvis Presley
    Craig Wishart - Let's get loud by Jennifer Lopez

    As another DJ (exclusive club!), thinking of the logistics of it, I'd suggest a couple CDs with the music clips (not the tracks in their entireities) burnt in advance (all pre-faded to the same level!) so that you could prepare one disk with the boundary music pre-faded ready to fire as the ball crosses the rope, and another with the next batsmens' music and dismissal music on.
