Title: We need a song
Post by: red macca on Thursday, September 14, 2006, 21:23:22
whenever i watch a game on telly and see Teams come out to songs like delilah,marching on together,bubbles etc i allways think it would be great if we actually had a song that the whole crowd sang to.It allways sounds loud as fuck..

Any good songs anyone would like us to sing?

This has been asked so many times over recent years.

I don't see how it could be anything but "Can't Help Falling In Love" to be honest

i concur, i was going to try and remedy this but my procastrination interefered with it and i forgot about it.

i'm thinking that club foot would be perfect, although the footy factory connotations are a bit annoying.

Isn't that a bit of a short term thing though? Imagine if it was Mike Flowers because that was a hit at the time! You need something that has passed the test of time. I can't think of anything because my tastes are from one extreme to the other.

Saturday by Elton John? It's a day I'm looking forward to these days :)

That would be cool just to hear the once when they come out - perhaps the promotion party.

"Yes, there were times, Im sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way."

If we wanted a song by someone associated to the club, we should have chose die hard Swindon fans, The Black Keys - https://www.thesun.co.uk/archives/bizarre/535099/black-keys-top-sports/

Indeed, Cozy Powell was a massive Town fan right up to his death in 1998.

Dance with the Devil is a brilliant track.

His intense fixation with speed and an undying devotion to Swindon Town FC aside, Cozy also became famous for his moments of eccentricity. Indeed, Most recalls that when 'Dance With The Devil' became eligible for a gold disc, Cozy insisted that it was presented to him in a biker's café by Chelsea Bridge.

I recall someone from the BBC using Stupidly Happy for some montage music at a World Cup semi final. I think it was mainly so they could show Colina while Mr. Partridge sang “with idiot grin.” I often wondered if it could be used as goal music.
