A few of the songs are previewed below, but to get the full effect, you’ll have to check out the playlist yourself.
Radiohead – Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box
In typical Thom Yorke fashion, this track melds rhythmic electronic sequences (reminiscent of a ping pong ball being hit back and forth) with relaxed yet beautiful vocal melody. The song opens their 2001 album, Amnesiac, and it’s a wonderful addition to anything ping pong related.

Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra – Kiss the Sky
The opening to this track just makes you feel like you’re in charge and in control. It will give you the swagger and confidence you need to achieve ping pong victory time and time again.
Flying Lotus – Table Tennis (Featuring Laura Darlington)
For a more mystical approach to your game, check out this track from Flying Lotus. It harmoniously combines floating vocal melodies with bouncing ping pong balls and pulsing electronic waves. Though the song has a laid back pace, it’s very effective for getting you focused and into the zone.

Optimus Rhyme – Ping Pong Song
If you’re a fan of hip hop and ping pong, hopefully you’ve heard of Optimus Rhyme. This track will bring effortless flow to your game while still keeping you on your toes with consistent guitar riffs and all sorts of lyrical gold in the form of ping pong references.
Miike Snow – Paddling Out
The instantly recognizable keyboard line in this track will make you want to move, which is a good thing in a competitive table tennis match. “Paddling Out” has been thought to reference going out to sea in the song, but could just as well be referring to the game we passionately know and love.
