Welford Road soundtrack

Post by JP14 » Thu May 23, 2019 4:27 pm

Listening to the likes of Ashton Gate on the TV they have very good DJs and a very good soundtrack, the soundtrack at WR is good, but the songs are not ones that entice the ground too much.

For me I’d keep Smoke on the Water, Roar and Shiny Happy People but I would like to see these songs played from next season...
  • The Greatest Show (Victory song) - I’ve Got a Feeling is a one generation song and that generation doesn’t really like it anymore
  • Can’t Stop The Feeling (Justin Timberlake)
  • High Hopes (Panic at the Disco)
  • Sky Full of Stars (Coldplay)
  • I’ve Gotta Be Me (Sammy Davies)
Plus I missed the old days when the TTTE soundtrack would play after Waldrom scored, perhaps we should have one for May or Thompson?

What are your thoughts on this?

Cheers and applause are all that’s needed, we don’t need a DJ, it would be like the cricket, with Sweet Caroline belting out every 5 minutes.

Next thing you’ll be wanting cheerleaders

Cheers and applause; Smoke on the Water; Ace of Spades (or anything with Lemmy to be honest! It's an aging rocker thing!)

How about Jethro Tulls Living in the Past because that's what the club seems to be doing :smt005

I don't mind the traditional Smoke on the water for them to come out to - particulalry as the foot stamping helps to build an intimidating atmosphere for the opposition.

But music after points are scored? No thanks.

They played a tune after Waldrom scored? Did they? I don’t remember that! I hate music being played after a score.

I genuinely cannot remember any soundtrack playing after TTTE scored for us :smt017

Agree entirely.

I like to hear Welcome to the Jungle in the build up to teams coming out - Tigers, Jungle.....

I still to this day do not know why we do not use Eye of the Tiger by Survivor more (Copyright issue maybe?) - OK so maybe last season (or perhaps more....) we weren't exactly "rising up to the challenge of our rivals" much but still, it's relevant IMO.

:smt017 I'm not even sure what this means.

An appropriate song would be by Extreme - Get the Funk Out - "If you don't like, what you see here, Get the Funk out...." but it would be open to abuse.....and probably upset the eternal doom mongers.....

:smt038 :smt038 I'd probably ignore the rugby if Lemmy was involved..... might not be a bad thing

Nay, Nay and thrice Nay - the rugby was bad enough without coldplay in the mix....

But then music is subjective - and rightly so, horses for courses and all that.

Please, not Sweet Caroline. What about “We’re on the Road to Nowhere..”?

What’s wrong with cheerleaders, if they’re used correctly they can really add to a match, probably too American for the oldies on here...

Short step away from disco dancers and fireworks every time a penalty goal is landed.

The game is a spectacle in itself, you want to improve it, change the laws so it is easier to understand and easier to officiate.

Agreed. I struggle to get my head around people wanting fireworks, flames, music after tries are scored and cheerleaders. Have we not come to watch the rugby? :smt017
