Search For A Song
« on: November 05, 2020, 11:11:47 PM »
As we have entered Lockdown II it is a great time to do something I have been meaning to do for a while......find a song to play before the players enter the pitch at home games, a club 'anthem' you could say.

How this will work is that all associated with the club can add suggestions to this thread or on social media #SearchForASong @AylesburyUnitedFC and once we have enough suggestions there will be a series of votes to whittle it down to THE SONG....

To start the ball rolling here are some suggestions (not all mine!)

Walk This Way - Run-D.M.C ft Aerosmith
God Is A DJ - Faithless
Fanfar For The Common Man - Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Rockafeller Skank - Fatboy Slim
Right Here, Right Now - Fatboy Slim
Thunderstuck - ACDC
Enter Sandman - Metallica
Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes
The Pretender - Foo Fighters

Hopefully something good to engage with and here's hoping a good song being crowned the winner, as it will be played at every home game!

Luke - do you have BTDH in a format I could then burn to a CD, or even better on CD? I think I can definitely just play that every match day without it needing to be the 'anthem' as would I like something to be usable when we do return home!

Ian - never heard of that one but I am sure would go down well with a number of our supporters!

Take Me Home - John Denver or The A Team theme tune went down well at Buckingham Rd.

Ian - great shout! (Andreas, where have you been hiding? This gets played at WHU all the time).

My suggestions are:

Oi!Oi!Oi! by the Cockney Rejects
War on the Terraces by the Cockney Rejects
We are the Firm by the Cockney Rejects
The Place I love by The Jam
British Way of Life by The Chords
Wycombe Scum, you're gonna die by Pineapple Platoon

The A Team theme tune is a good shout. Not as punchy or musically adept as the Pineapple Platoon offering, but a worthy contender (IMO).

MLC - I obviously haven't been hiding at the London Stadium...!

Great shout re A-Team - I once got bored with revision for an exam and learned the opening words at the start of the A-Team....'In 1972 a crack commando unit....' Unsurprisingly I didn't do very well in said exam but I remember those words!

You liking our Manager to a rat Lee? 😂
Thought of Ian's Sham suggestion earlier & also agree with Luke 're. Bring the Ducks Home - keep plugging it.

Absolutely not! Its just nice to reassure the manager that whatever happens during the game were still his friends!

Tom Hark - The Piranhas

Nice upbeat song imo.

The song should have some connection to Aylesbury, I feel. So I would propose these two with strong openings:

The Jean Genie  David Bowie

Garden Party Marillion
