Change of Tune

Post by VernonAtrium » Tue Feb 25, 2020 2:18 pm

Amongst all the talk of sacking BOD, DOR, OBY, YBY and any other number of bizarre acronyms, can I suggest the real way forward is to change our onto-the-field anthem? 'Smoke On The Water' is clearly out of its depth, living on past glories and not up to the demands of today's ruthless, high-Paice, professional game. In my opinion, (apologies for using that wishy-washy phrase) what Welford Road needs is a period of the boys preparing to smash it to the tune of this British Midlands anthem (YouTube provides the words, it's great, this internet thing):

Something inspiring from Hans Zimmer or Ramin Djawadi would be superb. Perhaps they could write a special track justfor us :smt023

There has been discussions about this before, I believe I started such a thread once. Problem with todays music is that it isn't universally appealing and not particularly effective at spurring a crowd. Imagine Dragon's Believer is a good option though.

Bit of Carl Orff. Carmina Burana is quite stirring.

Benny hill theme tune seems more appropriate just now. :smt005

Some things you just don't change; pancakes on Shrove Tuesday; eggs at Easter; Trees at Christmas; Smoke on the Water at Welford Road. Simples... :smt038

If the tyre is punctured - you don't replace the handlebars and think that will fix the issue.

Nor should you ignore the puncture, and keep riding it deflated damaging other parts of the machine.

The old chestnut!

One wonders if the original poster has bothered to read any of the légions of threads on this subject. The arguments remain the same, as does the song.

^^ Yes, lots!

Basically lacks a strong rhythm, and difficult to loop sensibly. For two.
