If you’re a fan of Memphis music, this is going to be right up your alley.

If you aren’t a fan of Memphis music? Well, bless your heart.

 

I had a crazy idea the other day to put together a symbolic playlist for the Grizzlies roster, comprised entirely of artists who hailed from Memphis, or made most of their music here.

 

I tried to keep it as family friendly as possible, and mostly succeeded. Mostly.

Zach Randolph – DJ Paul & Drumma Boy – We Don’t Bluff

There was no way I could have used any other song for ZBo. It just wouldn’t have been proper.

 

Tony Allen – Otis Redding – Security

 

Full disclosure here: The song I originally wanted to give TA probably would’ve been frowned upon. But you can’t really go wrong with Otis Redding, or the majority of the Stax catalog.

 

Mike Conley – Lord T & Eloise – Million Dollar Boots (featuring Al Kapone)

 

Chandler Parsons – Reigning Sound – I’m Trying (To Be the Man You Need)

 

All caught up, things I said I’d do
Sometimes I don’t pay enough attention to you
But I’m trying, trying to be the man you need
I might stumble, and I might fall
If you want me, all you gotta do is call
And I’m trying, trying to be the man you need

JaMychal Green – Sam and Dave –  Hold On, I’m Comin’

 

 

 

Stay tuned for part two, coming soon!
