Party tunes rule but there's still time for some Edith Piaf for James Reveley

James Reveley: a big fan of French DJ and producer Valentin Brunel

The 2016 champion jump jockey in France, James Reveley is the latest rider to reveal his current favourite tunes.

When I'm getting psyched for a race I listen to . . .  Temperature by Sean Paul

The beat and the rhythm of it really help push you that bit further – I’ve always found it a good song when I’m in the gym too.

When I'm celebrating a winner I listen to . . . All Night by Parov Stelar

It’s a good party song, guaranteed to get everyone dancing. I always associate it with the feeling of just wanting to get up and dance, and of having a good time.

When I'm annoyed about a loser I listen to . . . I Feel So Bad by Kungs

It says it all in the title. The song really describes how you feel after a bad day and I really like all the stuff by Kungs [French DJ and producer Valentin Brunel]. He’s become huge here in France and all over in the last couple of years – I would love to see a live set.

When I'm stuck in traffic I listen to . . . Breeze by Fenda

It doesn’t really have much to do with being stuck in traffic but it’s a tune I’m quite into at the moment. If I needed to pass the time I would stick on something good to listen to so this would do the trick.

When I'm relaxing at home I listen to . . . Perfect by Ed Sheeran . . . or maybe some Edith Piaf!

The radio stations here play a lot of English tunes but I quite like some classic French stuff. Edith Piaf is best known for Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien but I would go for La Foule. Sometimes the valets in the weighing room put on a station called Nostalgie and you hear plenty of those kinds of songs on there. Perfect is just a nice song to chill out to.

Kanye, Kaleo or Julie Andrews: Lizzie Kelly has a song for every occasion

Bob Dylan, The Pogues and a good drum intro key to David Bass's soundtrack

'Springsteen is so talented - I think he's the John Francome of the music world'
