In a recent interview with United Uncovered, defender Rio Ferdinand talked about his music preferences and his choice for each scenario.
Preparing for a game… Probably a group called Beat Corporation from Manchester. They play a lot of house music. Or Jay-Z.
Driving… At the moment Miguel. He’s had an album out this called Kaleidoscope Dream.
Relaxing… Definitely Maxwell.
Getting ready for a night out… ‘Fools Gold’ by The Stone Roses – I really like to have that on before a night out.
Keeping the kids happy… Lil Wayne or Michael Jackson keep them entertained.
Finally, what’s your favourite song ever? Oh, I can’t pick one. You can’t ask a music man to pick his favourite song ever! It’s got to be songs not song, there are too many.
Listening post: Magna Carta Holy Grail (LP), Jay-Z; Off On It (single), The Beat Corporation; Kaleidoscope Dream (LP), Miguel; The Stone Roses (LP), The Stone Roses.
