Tuning up a W, the beats behind Maple Hill Boys soccer
Guess what son is hyping the undefeated Maple Hill Boys Varsity Soccer team as they travel from Schodack to Colonie for their next match?
“Tunak, Tunak Tun” a Bhangara song from Daler Mehndi, has become the team’s unofficial official motivational song.
“Catchy rhythm, instruments and the fact that it’s silly and all in Hindi gets us hyped,” Senior defenseman Noah Roberts said. “We have no idea [what its saying] and that’s what makes it fun.”
Roberts says he came across the song on social media and shared it to his squad. The song has stuck ever since, infusing the soccer team with the energy and drive needed to battle it out on the soccer field.
“They all thought it was weird, but because of that and its catchy beat we all love it.” Roberts went on to say. ” We now play it on the bus before and after every game.”
Let’s hope the boys win their next match!
