Chants Thread - Ideas (Merged)

Recommended Posts

I know we’ve had multiple threads about these in the past that have come and gone. But I’d like to have a thread as the title suggests to see where it can take us. Perhaps a pinned thread? 

This season has been a struggle for chants as some of you will know, and it hasn’t helped with Flint, Reid, Bryan and Mags all leaving in the summer! 

I read S82’s message last week about the atmosphere and I think this could be a good start. This doesn’t have to a thread of ideas either, it could also be a thread to give information of the words of potential new chants heard at AG or watching City away. So in case supporters are not familiar with the words, they can view this thread for info. I know I’ve heard new chants before and not had a clue how it goes! 

I’d like to keep this thread positive, so if it isn’t for you, that’s fine but try and leave it to others who are interested. Most of us want a noisy Ashton Gate, anything to give the players that extra edge.

Could potentially be a massive second half of the season coming up.

Another song for Matty Taylor.

To the tune of dedicated follower of fashion by the kinks..

They seek him here,

They seek him there,

At Ashton Gate and everywhere,

Even when he's on the bench he's asking for the ball.

Cus he's a dedicated lad who hates the Rovers... 

Oh yes he does, oh yes he does, oh yes does!

 

 

 

 

Alright... I've got me coat, I'm just waiting for the taxi!

We’ve got Matty taylor, the best striker in town

he used to play for rovers, but Lansdown knocked them down

the said he’d go for 10 mil, but they could not prevent.. 

We gave them some of our loose change...

...so they could buy another tent

OH, we’ve got Matty Taylor..

I don’t know who they are or what they’re all about, I’ve heard that they play football and punch horses in the mouth

But for 19 years they’ve been living in the shadow, of city

Could always start them yourself?

I do, but people look towards those with the drum/megaphone to create an atmosphere. If I had it my way I’d **** the drum and megaphone off, it’d be better without and we never used to need it in the East End and certainly don’t need it in away ends.

You are aware you don’t need to constantly swear to get your point across don’t you?

If you start them off then why ask for others help? Even if you do want to get rid of those people, seems rather strange to me. Pretty sure if you start singing people will join in, looking forward to you starting them off.

How about you try to start a chant in the upper Lansdown and report back after Bolton (H)?

We’re all adults aren’t we? Does it matter?

I’m not asking others for help, I’m advising Harry or any others that are in the middle part of S82 (probably yourself judging by your response) as you’re the ones people look to for atmosphere which is what you’ve created whether you like it or not.

I don’t want to get rid of those people, just the objects. I’ve no issue with the people involved, they’ve our clubs best interests in mind — it’s just my opinion.

I also think the van Dijk chant is great. To the tune of 'Dirty Old Town'. Nice anthem. (Here for the curious:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUix4Uf4eE4). 

We play - and this season win - a lot in purple and lime. But we end up singing 'come on you reds' at away games. So how about this to the same tune:

 

Oh my heart

Is red and white

But in ‘94

When Tinman scored

 

On a Liverpool night

It was love at first sight 

Purple and lime

Purple and lime

I was chatting to a mate over the Christmas period about how good and original the 'Thacher's Gold' chant is, especially with the addition on 'Natch!' shouted mid-way through it. It's original and specific to us as well which makes it stand out. This got us thinking, why isn't there a song based around 'Thatcher's Haze', it seems just, if not more popular!

So after a couple of (mulled) ciders we thought about:

(tune of 'Happy Days')

Sunday, Monday, Thatcher's Haze

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thatcher's Haze

Thursday, Friday, Thatcher's Haze

The weekend comes, so we get drunk, waited all week for you!

‘Good’ Pack needs a new one 

Pack already has a perfectly good song but not many people join in with it. 

We fell in love with Marlon Pack, to the tune of We Found Love by Rihanna. 

As far as I’m aware, this is also a unique chant that no other teams sing and was composed on a mini-bus returning from Roger Wilkins Cider Farm before a home match.

@Harry/other S82 lads these are good ones, would be good to hear them.

The first one is decent but the 2nd one would be a big effort to get people involved. 

Besides, I don’t start the songs any more. Leaving it to the younger members of S82 these days. I promised myself that I would withdraw my vocal support in this way following the harassment I receive in the area for being ‘loud’, plus I said I would do this last March when the season ticket fiasco arose. 

I still join in, but I no longer start any. 

My opinion on the whole thing though is this :

The old songs which people always say never get sung, DO get sung at most games, it’s just that not many join in so you can hardly hear them. 

The newer ‘ultra-style’ songs, are not necessarily to my taste, but the S82 guys have persevered with these and there’s no doubt that the louder chants these days are those ones. As I say, not to my taste particularly, but I join in. 

For those wanting something else, anyone is welcome to start a chant. No one in the S82 group with the drum/megaphone is going to shout you down. Nothing has changed from the old days in respect of anyone being able to start a song. It’s just that not many join in these days. So good luck if you do, make sure you have plenty of mates to join in with you and hopefully you can get yourself heard, others like it and join in. 

The megaphone and drum blokes are in the same place every week. If you’ve got a song idea and don’t want to start it yourself, message them on Twitter, visit them in Spanish or speak to them at the ground and I’m sure they’ll listen to you and give it a go. 

As for original songs and copying other teams. Nearly all football songs are sung by multiple teams. Only very few are unique to any club. We have a uniqueness with Drink up thee cider, I am a cider drinker, blackbird I’ll ‘ave ‘e. As well as the earlier mentioned pack song. You’ll be hard pushed to visit more than a dozen of the 92 clubs and find there are any unique songs sung, so we don’t do too badly with 3 or 4 regularly sung and well known unique songs. Yes, Liverpool and Man U fans tend to be the ones who come up with originals that then do the rounds at other clubs, but we ain’t too bad in our originality. As I keep saying though, the problem isn’t the originality or uniqueness of the songs, it’s the fact that only about 200 people sing them.
