Don’t Mix Lily Allen And Polohttp://mplsbikepolo.com/pickup/dont-mix-lily-allen-and-polo/ http://mplsbikepolo.com/pickup/dont-mix-lily-allen-and-polo/#comments Fri, 18 Apr 2014 17:07:49 +0000 http://mplsbikepolo.com/?p=1050 Last night’s experiment of blasting Lily Allen during polo was interesting at the best. Soon as there was a break in the game, players would try and get their phone plugged in to change up the tunes. So why does Lily Allen’s music not work well with polo? Just not aggressive enough? Too much pop in a short period of time? Really this experiment just raises more questions about polo players then it ever answered.

However we did find that players were content with more underground’ish hip-hop. Aggressive, loud, and funny seemed to be what the mood calls for.

Lizzo knocks it out of the park for polo most of the time.

While Awkwafina brings the funnies.

Or if you want to get really weird, here is some aggressive pop for your earballs.
