Start Me Up

From my extensive hours spent watching football, both on television and in a variety of different stadia, I've noticed one very odd truism.  There are two songs that are almost always played during pregame warmups.  One makes sense: Start Me Up by the Stones.  You're warming up, so the lyrics make sense, and the song is upbeat and can cause a little adrenaline flow.

The other, however, makes no sense to me whatsoever: In the Air Tonight by Phil Collins.  I guess the lyrics are quasi-appropriate, but it falls measurably short on the other dimension.  Rather than revving me up, this song makes me yearn for naptime.

Has anyone else noticed this?  If you can possibly explain it to me, I'd be grateful beyond words.
