TGIF #88: David Beckham
In honour of David Beckham’s appointment as Ambassadorial President of the British Fashion Council, we are spicing up our lives and dedicating our weekly TGIF playlist to David (we’re on first name basis as of this appointment). These are our top ten tunes, a compilation of David’s favourites, songs that honour him and ones that are just obvs so DB related (somehow). Happy Friday.
Wild Horses – The Rolling Stones (“It’s such a strong powerful song, sung by one of the best bands of all time,” he told BBC Radio 4. “Whenever I’ve gone through a tough time, or on the way to a game, this is one song that reminds me of great occasions.” Deep).
The Girl Is Mine – Michael Jackson & Paul McCartney (another pick of his, we’re going to say this one is dedicated to Vicky B).
Spice Up Your Life – Spice Girls (Need we say more?)
First Class Fights – Future (“I got my feet up, I’m kicking it like David B,” one of many football Beckham references. See more below).
I Am The Resurrection – The Stone Roses (“This is from the 1990s in Manchester, there were so many things going on. It was the time of the Hacienda. I probably only went there once, but certain songs remind me of Manchester,” he told BBC Radio 4).
Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It – Will Smith (He’s friends with Will Smith, right?)
Something About The Way You Look Tonight – Elton John (Another VB love song dedication).
Domo23 – Tyler, The Creator (“I’m tripping balls, David Beckham.” You’re welcome).
Wonderful Night – Fatboy Slim (“Our styles fuckin’ pouch like Dave Beckham.” Not sure what this means but it’s Fatboy Slim and he’s British so he’s in).
If Everyday Was Christmas – Cruz Beckham (Iconic).
