Much as I dislike Portsmouth as a Club - The Pompey Chimes is fairly good and does relate to the City and was taken from the tune of the Town Hall clock chimes
This from Hibernian gives me chills everytime I hear it,I know its not a chant but any excuse to listen to this awesome song
Everyone in WSL where i am sings stand or fall and wasnt always the case. It has so much more meaning too than Norman Wisdoms version.We’re getting there. I saw a video from Saturday and everyone is singing Stand or Fall.
Always like this from Cardiff
Holtenders in the skyMust admit the Villa 'yippie-eye-oh' one is quite catchy. No idea what they are singing though. Kipper Tie?
We Aldershot sang Tequila at Roker Park in October 1987 for the first time . It had just been in the charts . Not claiming to be the first,but that's when we started.I'm always a little bit saddened to hear a tune that I think might be original to us being sung somewhere else. Happened yesterday with one of the telly matches having a "She's Electric" tune chant....
Noting that claims of originality are usually mistaken, either willfully or just down to imperfect knowledge, how many original songs/chants have we actually had over the years?
SBTS is the obvious and massive stand out.
Had anyone else used "That's Amore" before we did...?
Was Bissouma the first "Tequila" player or did someone else get there first?
The other question I wonder about is how much is known about which teams fans have actually originated the use of now widespread chant tunes.. My guess would be the big teams that used to be on the telly most often..? Which of our favourite chant tunes are most and least used elsewhere?
You can’t sing “oh Telscombe Cliffs is wonderful” now the Wimpy has gone.At Peacehaven half a dozen of us used to sing Gene Pitney’s (?) 24 Hours From Tulsa.
“We were only
24 hours from Telscombe
We were only
one day away from the club
If Bob* is getting ‘em in
We know that we’re gonna win
Dah dah …. dah dah.. [etc]
*Bob used to run the bar
I recently discovered that Hartlepool sing "Two little boys" by Rolf Harris. I've always thought that would be a great terrace song tbh.
This can be our new one for our fantastic owner BLOOM ..................BLOOM
