songs for freestyles

hey i will be joining a competition soon but i need to pick a song…do you guys know any good song for yoyoing??

Photographic - Depeche Mode
New Life - Depeche Mode
Just Can’t get enough - Depeche Mode
Big Muff - Depeche Mode

(You should get my train of thought by now)

Bliss - Muse
Baba O’Riley - The Who
Sweet Dreams - Eurythmics
Middle Of The Riddle - Alphaville (yes seriously)
Time Is Running Out - Muse
Ca Plane Pour Moi - Plastic Bertrand (Every single Frenchman I’ve met knows this song)

You can also use about anything techno. I personally try to stay away from any kind of hip hop.

Addment: I tried to find songs fitted for freestyles of a bit different rythms and speeds. Pick one you think fits.

Pick the song you like. How long it has to be (3mins?)? And what type of music do you like? Is your yoyoing style fast or slow? I like fast play so I would choose something like this:  (oziel zinho - re menor philharmonic) If you like it ill post you a link for more music like that.

what is your style?
please tell us.

i mean 1A - hip-hop like mickey suzuki.

like that one.

uhm InMyOpinion , slow → Teriyaki Boyz - Baggy Pants
fast → 2 step bhangra - the blitz ft. sod-a & kashif

1a i kinda want a medium tempo cause i cant really play fast

Did you check out the ones I posted? I think a few of them are fitting for a medium speed freestyle. So just check them out on Spotify (which you should have).

Addment: Spotify can be gotten at It is free if you have an invite. These invites are given out on several websites. I only know a norwegian site: Getting invites there shouldn’t be too hard.

This is nice:

Grant Johnson used it at PNWR

aero smith acdc foo fighters crazy train by ozzy ozbourn

Next year Im going to do a few minute freestyle for the talent show. Im going to use “The Cowboy Song” by ThinLizzy. It starts out slow and picks up. This way I can mix in the fast and slow, complicated and simple.
