What a DJ moment! Minutes after winning a huge football game, one of those games that transcends the sport and becomes all about national pride (not to mention releasing 18 months of COVID-19 pent-up frustration and hardship), the DJ at London’s Wembley Stadium had a choice to make.
England has just beaten old foes Germany 2-0 to knock them out of the Euro football tournament, their home stadium was going bonkers, and the DJ had just played the obvious England soccer anthem, “Three Lions”. But now he faced that perennial of DJ choices: What to play next?
