Fresh on the back of an "impressive" Lip Sync Battle performance at Rugby League Rocks last weekend, we spoke to 2015 Man of Steel Zak Hardaker about his taste in music...
I like to listen to dance music, ones with a bit of bass in them, the sort that get the head rocking to get me moving before a game. It is either dance or R&B or baseline music or depending on if it is a big game like a final, I like to listen to some motivational songs like Rocky
I would probably have to say something a bit high tempo to keep the buzz going, that doesn’t help though when I’m wide awake and trying to get to sleep!
The first I ever bought was Five, 'If you’re getting down', still one of my favourite songs and I sung it on Christmas Eve for karaoke
I would like to say I have got a good collection but the lads don’t tend to agree! I’ve got Justin Bieber’s latest album, the boys are not keen on that
I don’t think I have ever been to a concert, I went to a Britain’s Got Talent event but I don’t think you can class that
I would have to be Five or Back Street Boys, growing up they were my two favourites.
I like to play my music when I’m in the bathroom, at this moment it is the Justin Bieber album and “Love yourself’ is my favourite track but it doesn’t beat the Five album or 50 Cents first album.
At junior school from years 3-6 I played the violin. I was quite good at the time, it was very tough but it was all that was left. I used to go to classes on a Saturday morning but training two or three nights a week when I was younger, I used to forget which note was which so I just copied what the other guys were playing. The instructor said he was more impressed that I had learnt the tune off by heart rather than reading the notes!
