Why this day in age you'd choose to play this song is beyond me, but the University of Arizona made local news yesterday by pumping fake crowd noise into practice and blasting Phil Collins' In The Air Tonight......
Fake crowd noise caused a very real headache on Wednesday for those living near Arizona Stadium.That's an odd choice to say the least. The song doesn't really make me want to go hit someone. If I was a neighbor and they were playing 'Let The Bodies Hit The Floor' or something, I'd probably be upset. But 'In The Air Tonight'? You just chill and wait for that sweet ass drum solo right???
The University of Arizona Police Department received numerous noise complaints from surrounding homes during the UA football team’s two-hour practice inside the stadium. Wildcats coaches pumped in crowd noise, complete with tape of a public-address announcer, to replicate the gameday atmosphere in their final full-bore practice of the regular season.
The noise blared from about 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Arizona coaches capped practice by piping in Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight”.
