Do Aston Villa Need A New Anthem?

Do Aston Villa Need A New Anthem?

WHAT'S THAT SONG THE VILLA SING? YOU KNOW THE ONE?!

The matchday atmosphere at Villa park is like most football grounds in the premier league excluding a few, if not a little better.There's generally a good atmosphere, and when its rocking, its really is rocking (and that's just with two sides of the ground singing).

The new Villa era has arrived and its time to come up with an anthem to be sung by everybody as the players come out, until kickoff.

I mean when Liverpool come singing 'you'll never walk alone' or the them lot down the road crying ' keep right on ' wouldn't it be very nice to have something else to shout back at them and really drown them out for a good few minutes.

I'd sing along, would you?

The General has suggested that maybe this is an avenue that can be worked on via the Supporters Consultation Group. Trouble is, is this something that can be publicised and started or just something that starts naturally and catches on? Personally I think the latter and think the Paul McGrath song has sort of become the anthem? We do have the bells are ringing, or Holteenders in the Sky, maybe they need to be pushed more?

I did ask the board at some stage to get in touch with Black Sabbath (some of them are Villa boys) and see if they'd record a version of Holteenders in the Sky, now that would be epic!

doctor who also suggested a poll, I'll not use it as I have a few other questions to push through but thought it could be answered in the forum thread and article comments...

Do Villa need a new anthem?

Yes or no the songs we use are enough already.

Anyone remember (back in the day) when the Come on you lions song (not many lyrics obviously) used to get everyone stomping even in the trinity rd stand (suppose the wooden floors helped) - but great atmos back then. Dont most anthems get started in the pub before the game and if theyre any good they get transported into the stands ?

I think Holte Enders in the Sky is the anthem that we should concentrate on. It comes from 'Ghost Riders in the Sky' by Johnny Cash. I think that Villa should walk out to that one to get the fans going instead of that stupid grand stand that they come out to at the moment.

sound about right chico, I do remember the night of the last AV Shareholders Association meeting where we voted to accept the Randy share offer (formality obviously but things had to be done right via assiation rules) Dennis Mortimer was speaking and I 'dared' to interupt, about the only thing I'd ever do that for with a text 'deal done announcement due, Ellis era over'... Well, we finished the meeting and then a few of us including Carl and Buck Chinn went outside the Holte End with a bottle or two of champagne and sang the bells are ringing (as well as the wicked witch is dead!!!!!) Happy days!.... and yes, I know what you mean about hair! :o(
