"Oooooh when the saaaints go marching in"

Recommended Posts

Anybody else agree that the slowly sung version of "Oh when the saints go marching in" was much better than the rushed and puffed out version we always hear? I think we can take a page from the saints fans book and sing OTBC much better and more truthfully to the original version.

And sung more infrequently, not barked out every couple of minutes like a cuckoo clock on speed that has swallow a couple of dozen boxes of pro plus

 

Funny how West Ham with ''blowin bubbles, Brum with ''Keep right on ", Livepool ''Walk on'' can sing ther clubs song

 

We get some halfwit giving us a ''countdown'' as if is the opening of a new poundshop in some chavvy town, being opened by a Big Brother contestant from 2005

i think the saints fans copied the slower version from the spurs fans...either way it sounds much better than our pathetic efforts... another thing that annoys me is when the old fogies in the jarrold clap along to Y,army (which is a pathetic chant anyway) as if its max bygraves greatest hits..why the heck can''t they open there mouths to contribute as well ?  [:D]

lmao...brilliant City 1st...sums it up perfectly!

I just wish we would stop singing it altogether, I find it embarrassing unless 5000+ are singing in unison

Would love us to sing OTBC, and other songs, slower and louder. Far better and more effective than a quick shout!Maybe someone could organise a rehearsal session at an away game!

A slower or even mid-tempo version would be a lot better: at the current pace it is almost impossible to join in. At West Ham''s they play some musical accompaniment that sets the tune and tempo, and they turn it off by the time they get to the "fortune always hiding" bit. I can imagine something like that, or even a singer who sings the verses of the original and the crowd could join in with the chorus.

"Outburst of tourettes dpit?"

Not really...it''s just that Father Jack keeps coming to mind whenever I read the output of a certain poster.

You''ll be back......

 07/02/2005.....

"No doubt this will come as great news to a lot of you, but I''m giving up this board.

It would appear that my total support theory has gone on the scrapheap, judging by a lot of the replies to my recent posts.

I

am enjoying City wining at last, so much so, that I can''t keep getting

wound up defending my position on total support. Its spoiling what is

left of this season for me.

CITY WILL STAY UP!, I''ll be content with that fact.

I

wish you all, yes all, good health, especially City Angel and Gazza the

great. But my sanity comes first, and I can''t be a''doing with anymore

arguments.

I love my club, and my support will be as strong as ever.

Prove me right Nigel Boy.

Take care and cheers, 1st wizard."

10/09/2005.....

"I''ve really had it with posters who''s only defence in a debate with

me, is to throw in my face, that for the present, I can''t go to Carrow

Road because of my illness.

They then hide behind the words ''only a joke''. Its not a joke, its a nasty remark from nasty people.

And I don''t belong on a nasty message board.

I don''t wish to be part of a message board, where my honesty is rewarded with low and spiteful remarks.

So King, Dicky, Ronbol and Co, enjoy yourself, I''m off.

Call yourselves City fans?, because I don''t.

 

Bye."

See Ya! [:D]

Of course Wiz will be back on here. Racing certainty. Nailed on.

 

He''ll say he''s decided to give us/the board "another chance".

 

Agree on Saints song. Right speed and tone, very effective. Constantly shouting "Y''Army" isn''t singing its just a spot of communal shouting. The Scousers were giving YNWA an airing on Sunday at the end of their game against Spurs, a fitting epilogue to the game-hugely effective again and, it seemed, from all around the ground.

 

I don''t like the countdown either-though I''ll usually have a go at singing at the song everytime, the trouble is, everyone goes at different speeds and different words, "scrummage" in particular. But the goal music? An aberration. No-one seems to like it so why its persisted with I don''t know. Its not so much the jingle used-and it sounds like the music you''d use for a Viagra ad-its the whole concept of playing music (!!) after a goal is scored. Oh please...
