Time For New Villa Songs?

Time For New Villa Songs?


YatesyVillain asks if it is time for a song?

With a new season we have a new broom and it's swept away a lot of frustration in the Villa camp. The atmosphere at VP came across as electric on Saturday, with a free-flowing, attacking performance to-boot! With a few new faces around both on and off the pitch, I wonder is it time to freshen up some of the songs we hear week in, week out at VP?

I was pondering this in the afterglow of the game against West Ham, and had a couple of ideas (together, it must be said, with slightly more than a couple of beers!). Despite having a season ticket in my youth for 12+ years, I'm now stuck in Singapore as an armchair fan, albeit one that regularly gets up at 3am to watch evening games involving the mighty boys in C&B!

Would love to hear one of these sung wholeheartedly over the TV commentary in an upcoming game!

Best up first - what about this one for our own Marc Albrighton?

Sung to the tune of 'knick-knack, paddy whack'.... He goes left He goes right He'll leave you on your arse all night He is Marc Albrighton, Wizard of the Wing Can you hear the Villa sing Villa (clap clap clap) Villa (clap clap clap) Villa (clap clap clap)

Surely with our new / temporary boss in charge there has to be some decent material for an 'Old MacDonald' song there somewhere? My lame attempt below, but I'm sure you lot can come up with something better!

Kev MacDonald had a Team, EE-I-EE-I-O
And on that Team he had a [pause] Brad, EE-I-EE-I-O With a Dive Dive here and a Dive Dive there Here a Dive, there a Dive, everywhere a Dive Dive
Kev MacDonald had a Team, EE-I-EE-I-O
Kev MacDonald had a Team, EE-I-EE-I-O
And on that Team he had a [pause] Dunne, EE-I-EE-I-O With a Head Head here and a Head Head there Here a Head, there a Head, everywhere a Head Head
Kev MacDonald had a Team, EE-I-EE-I-O Kev MacDonald had a Team, EE-I-EE-I-O
And on that Team he had [shouts] Carew, EE-I-EE-I-O With a Goal Goal here and a Goal Goal there Here a Goal, there a Goal, everywhere a Goal Goal
Kev MacDonald had a Team, EE-I-EE-I-O

Righto, that's my limited creative juices exhausted for a few years. I look forward to being told I'm an idiot and need to grow up (although I already get that a lot from the wife!) Really would love the likes of Albie to get his own song though - anything we can do to big him up and keep his confidence high the better! Little gem of a fella that one..... Onwards and Upwards!

Cheers, YatesyVillain

I hate to say it but I've felt for some time that villa fans only sing when they're winning. What I'd love to see at VP is a nucleus of devoted fans in the centre of holte who can keep the crowd going even when things aren't going too well on the pitch. I'll tell you what really angers me... so called "fans" who boo down our own team when things aren't going the way they like. I remember 2 seasons ago when villa looked to be heading for a champions league spot, way out infront of arsenal, having played many great and hard won games - the best season we had had for over a decade. I'm sure most of you remember the start of our downfall that season was when we were beating Stoke 2-0 and they clawed their way back into the game to snatch a draw. It was upsetting, yes, but I couldn't believe that those players, who had given so much to Villa that season, were booed off the pitch at the end of that game. I truly think that the crowds reaction that day played a crucial part in the woeful performance our players displayed from then on. I know I was disgusted by the crowd so I can only imagine what the players must have felt. I also have had a feeling that our somewhat fickle home crowd could be partly responsible for our below par home record of late. Or is that going too far? I know it can be a frustrating life being a Villa fan and we can all get carried away expecting too much from the team but at the end of the day we are called "supporters" for a reason. We are there to support the team, not to put them down when we feel they have under achieved. Anyway, back to songs. I remember going to see Chelsea play at VP back when Mourhino was in charge and, even though we weren't winning, the crowd never stopped chanting for the whole 90 minutes. I really felt that the crowd had made the team dig deap to pull off the 1-1 result (and it was a result against that chelsea team). I just wish that we could support our team like that week in, week out. As I said before, It would be great if someone could organise a set up where a die hard core of fans could be seated together to get songs started and keep the crowd positive even when things look grim (especially to shout down the fools who start booing at the first sign of trouble - you know who you are and you should feel ashamed). Does that sound beyond the realms of possibility? O.k. rant over. In reponse to the original thread, I really like the Albrighton song and can imagine it catching on quickly. The old macdonald song may need some work though lol. Oh and flyers are a great idea.

Fear, where are we on this? There looked like a head of steam getting up towards the end of last season, with support from within the club, only for it to go quiet again. What needs to be done to get this back on the agenda?

voth - bells are ringing is cool as an overall song but still support the need for chants that lift individual players. Could do with song books and cattle prods for certain parts of the ground but handing out flyers on the car park of the holte would be a good way of launching new chants.

Marc Alrbighton's song should definitely, surely, be to the tune of Lionel Richie's All Night Long!?!? I'll let someone else come up with words for the "siesta.. forever.." bit though.
