So what's everyone's favourite song that other teams sung that we've never had a version of?

I've always liked Millwall's one:
No one likes us we don't care, We are Millwall, Super Millwall, We are Millwall from the den


Chelsea: One man went to mow, went to mow a meadow
Their words are bit silly but it sounds good when they sing it


Arsenal's old one to 'Cant take my eyes off you':

We love you Ljungberg and if its quite alright, We need you Ljungberg in the Redand White...

And Finally Man U

Forever and ever, we'll follow our team, we are United, the Busby Babes, For we won't be mastered, by who, by you Cockney.....etc!


And finally Man U again
Ryan Giggs, Ryan Giggs, riding through the Glen, Ryan Giggs, Ryan Giggs with his band of men

As far as I know we've never had a song to any of those tunes. So they'd be my first choice tunes for any new Everton Songs!

What about everyone elses faves?

I think we have a poor selection of songs that actually get an outing on match day.......

"ooo its a corner" was a classic

I'm a bit concerned you know a couple of united songs though.......

Although don't know any of the words I'm always impressed with chants from the continental fans.... they usually don't seem to be singing to any tune that I know........ always impressed non the less.....

I remember the 'ooh its a corner' one! When Hinchcliffe used to whip them in for Dunc!

The foreign ones are like a mass of noise with a tune that goes on for half an hour! They sound intense though!

Feeling bad about picking 2 United songs now! I blame them them being on the tele!

I would be a bit worried if anyone who sits by me started singing songs about Milwall or Utd to be honest... :mellow:

:lol:

I am quite happy with the ones we have got, i agree our selection isnt the largest but there are some decent ones.

I would be happy to have just one song if it meant the atmosphere would improve, frankly, its being embarrassing at times during the last couple of seasons. There have been one or two matches were the crowd have been immense (Duncan 1-0 Utd springs to mind, what a night...) but they are sadly few and far between. When Goodison is rocking I doubt there is a player in the world that would want to be playing there, I remember Frank Lampard saying he hates it here...which is nice :D

Sadly recently the only time the crowd start to get behind the team is if a good hard challange goes in (Neville against the lady boy from portugal earlier this year...the atmosphere was immense...and we got a point, coincidence, I think not :) *pats himself on the back*) OR if the referee is even worse than usual (Renee matches are always good atmopsheres :lol:)

It would be nice to see Goodision rocking every other week again, a singing stand like at City anyone???

Oh no, I really respect that song. That's been sung properly at the match by them for about 100 years! For that reason alone, I like it.

I heard that at Bolton, when Anelka played for them, they used to sing the song "Monster" by the band The Automatic, but instead they changed it to:
"What's that coming over the hill, is it Anelka? Is it Anelka?"
Personally I reckon that is genius, making a great song new age song into a football chant.

Hey here's an idea.... it doesn't sound as good but it could probably pass:
"What's that coming over the hill, is it Arteta? Is it Arteta?"
:P

i must admit i know a fair few united songs from going to OT, they do have loads of them, creative too.
we seem to sing only a couple at home, but on the away games there are a few more ive never heard at Goodison.
agree with Ian, and i think we've had this conversation before, but there is no atmosphere at Goodison anymore.

I don't know who started that, whether it was Bolton or Cardiff City, because Cardiffs chant used to be:

"What's that coming over the hill is it a Chopra? It's Michael Chopra!"

In fact I'm pretty sure it was Cardiff because that is where The Automatic are from...


spose we could use that new kings of leon song sex is on fire

OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHH...............ARTETA'S ON FI-IRE!

:P

The Automatic one has done the rounds, we actually sang it for Andy Johnson but changed the words to "whos that scoring again its Andy Johnson" etc, even Wigan sang it about Heskey. I agree that the singing at away games is better but that fucking half time at away games where everyone congregates down the stairs singing ".........and we love our Neville Southall etc..........." does my fucking head in, then the silly sods put it on youtube, so embarrassing. Personally i like it that we are differwent and don't have numerous comical ditties, id rather leave that to the inbred fuckers over the road. However i did like the "Robbie Fowlers illegitimate, he ain't got no birth certificate, hes got aids and cant get rid of it, poor old smack head b*****d" and "Super Kev Campbell, he scores in a scramble, he knows where the fucking net is"

We have organized supporter groups here in portugal, and with regards to Sporting, there've been some problems in the past, so now our more creative guys are called Directivo Ultras XXI. They have a lot of chants, for each player, and a lot for the team, and they sing for the entire game. Sadly, the songs (with a few exceptions) are not sung by the entire stadium, since mostly others don't know them, or don't want to sing songs from DUXXI... Stupid, really, but what can you do...?

Anyways, here's a link to their media page, where you can hear some of their chants:

http://duxxi.org/spo...n...0&Itemid=92

If there's anyone in particular you want me to translate, I'll do it, just let me know and I'll try.



anyways, here's a few videos too:
Everyone to the stadium (Todos ao estádio)
Lirics:

Todos ao estadio durante todo o ano
toda é festa é so porque te amo
eu vou cantar mesmo que fique rouco
se tu venceres fazes-me ficar louco...
Nao posso viver sem ti tenho que te ver ganhar
estaremos sempre aqui onde o Sporting jogar
eu estarei sempre a cantar
cantar ate ficar rouco faz-me ficar Louco
Força Sporting allez la la la la la la la la la la la ..

Translated, it's something like this:
Everyone to the stadium all troughout the year
All this celebration is because I love you
I'm going to sing, even if I go hoarse
If you you win, you make me go insane
I can't live without you, i need to see you win
We'll always be here, wherever Sporting plays
I will always be singing
singing untill i go hoarse, you make me go insane
Go Sporting Allez la la la la la la la la la la la...

(Se algum dia não vires as nossas bandeiras)
Lirics:
se algum dia não vires as nossas bandeiras...
se algum dia o tambor não tocar...
se algum dia a nossa voz tu não ouvires...
então Sporting o mundo vai acabar...
se algum dia se apagar a nossa chama...
se algum dia a nossa força nos faltar...
se algum dia não ouvires que te amo...
então Sporting o mundo vai acabar...

If someday you don't see our flags
If someday the drum doesn't beat
If someday our voice isn't heard
Then Sporting, the world is gonna end
If someday our flame goes out
If someday our strengh is lacking
If someday you don't year that I love you
Then Sporting, the world is gonna end


There's a couple of others i'd like to leave for your consideration:
sung to the tune of My way, by Sinatra ;):
the world knows (O mundo sabe que)
O Mundo sabe que
Pelo teu amor, eu sou doente
Farei o meu melhor
Para te ver sempre na frente
Irei onde o coração me levar
E sem receio...
Farei...o que puder
Pelo meu Sporting

The world knows that
For your love, i am sick
I'll do my best
To always see you in the lead
I'll go wherever my heart takes me
And with no fear
I'll do.. whatever i can
For my Sporting

this last one is one of my favorites, i have it as a ring tone on my cellphone, i tried to find a video or link, but couldn't... if I do, i'll link it later:

Força força Sporting
Contigo em toda a parte
Eu te amo
Contigo quero dar
A volta ao Mundo
Quero passar contigo
Todo o ano
Todo o ano

Isso que diz toda a gente
Que somos violentos
E somos delinquentes
Não lhes faço caso
Vou a todo o lado
Sou da Juve Leo
Sou descontrolado
La La La La La La...

Go go Sporting
With you everywhere
I love you
With you i want to go
Around the world
I want to be with you
All through the year
All through the year

The things that everyone says
That we're violent
That we're delinquents
I don't give them credit
I go everywhere
I'm from Juve Leo
I'm out of control
La La La La La La...

This last one, i can't remember the tune... It's just out of my reach, you know...? When I think i have it, it slips away...;)

I've not been able to get to a game for a long while now so not too sure on any existing chants for us. Used to love the Hinchcliffe "OOH... Its a corner. OOH... its a corner"!

'I am the musicman I come from down your way and I can play... what can you play? I play Pienaar.
Pi-a-Pi-a-Pi-e-naar-Pi-e-naar......'

Unless we already use that one!
