Theres been a few posts on here over the last few months and possibly longer about songs at the match etc etc.
Either people wanna get a new song and make it ours or the origins of a song, is it ours or is it somebody elses, I myself think it is very hard to force people to sing songs (as Everton have tried!!) but why don't we sing three of the best if not the best Everton songs we have.
a) Banks of the Royal Blue Mersey is my favorite and the best Everton song out there in my opinion, when you get that going at the away matches it doesn't half sound great. A full Park End or Gwladys St singing that would be amazing!!
b) Here We Go is so simple and brilliant. Also a bit of something different to the 'Everton, Everton' chant that goes out with same name. Just imagine with the old words "we're the team, we're supreme No.1 & we love you EV-ER-TON" I know its a bit cheesy but fucking hilarious it would be.
c) Although this one is making a comeback 'We're by far the greatest team.... the world has ever seen' is a chant that takes me right back to the 80s (along with We Shall Not Be Moved!) as a chant that used to make me hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
Them three along with possibly some other old faves are the easiest chants in the world and removes the need to have any songs adapted and forced onto us (good or bad) because we all know the best chants are born out of nowhere.
Just wanted to get your thoughts on all this caper, people......... agree or disagree???

The reason I say this is the Street End will sing all day and good on them, but my season ticket is in the Park End and sometimes it can be quiet to say the least...
So a bit of a rallying call to all my blue brothers and sisters in the Park End, get your singing heads on...
I'm liking the tell me ma, me ma uefa song as well...

I to have a season ticket there and would love there to be more singing in the Park End, don’t think anything will ever happen to make it more so though.

"We hate Bill Shankly" - welll, after all, he did end up an Evertonian, didnt’t he, so you might have to change that. Saint John and Big Ron? - your average shite supporter somewhere near Reading) would have no idea what you were talking about. And as their team changes every year it would be very hard to keep up.
In the unlikely event of our favourite ref treading the Goodison turf in the future, instead of the understandable chorus of booing, can I recommend everyone simply chanting ’ Clattenberg, clap clap clap’, just to say that absolutely everone in the ground knows who he is.
Would you like it?

"Oh he lives in a box, a very big box.....Bob Paisley"
To the Blur tune - Country House
Love the really old one the Park End were belting out at the Sunderland game cant for the life of me remember what it’s called naming the old players,

And finally, can someone tell me why when the GS start ’Grand old Team’ they have to sing it as fast as they possibly can? If that’s their idea of tempo and rhythm, I hope they’re not Catholics............

The theme to Z cars will always be special to Evertonians everywhere and the team should always run out to it. However, we need a song with lyrics that reflects our club and city. Adopting a Beatles classic like ’Hey Jude’ would be incredible and may well encourage more of the fans to participate. It would also remind the supporters of other clubs of the history and heritage of our club and city, particularly with the move to Kirkby looming on the horizon. Another possibilty would be the chorus to Rod Stewart’s ’You’re in my heart,you’re in my soul" as I have seen that written on flags at games in the past.
Whilst many of our rivals have seen their support change over the years, we remain a football club that is proud of it’s working class roots and support. Choosing an anthem that reflects Everton and it’s place in the city of Liverpool is long overdue.

Summerbee, who was not in the least nasally challenged, took it with a broad grin on his face.
Anyone else remember that one?

As for singing about Munich, I hear Leeds could do with a few more fans through the gate, where’s your dignity?

During the Sunderland game some lads in the St End started singing "Feed the Yak". When they’d finished a voice from the back piped up "Don’t feed him anymore,the fat c***"

My favourite whenever we played Leeds in the seventies was, Whats it like to be a Twat Billy Bremner. Classic.
Used to love When You’re Smiling, The Everton Bootwalk, Its a Long Way to Wembley Stadium, Show Them The Way to Go Home They’re Tired and They Want to Go to Bed (for a wank!), You’ll Not See Nothing Like The Mighty Everton, Rangers/Celtic Rangers/Celtic chanted faster and faster, Come and have a Go If You Think You’re Hard Enough, We Are The Scousers The Cock Of The North......Ahh those memories
21 Posted 08/12/2007 at 13:53:52
Who can ever forget, falling off the football specials and bursting out into song with " LOCK UP YER DAUGHTERS, YER BOTTLES O’ BROWN.. THE EVERTON BOYS ARE IN TOWN:"
Oh the memories.....
22 Posted 08/12/2007 at 14:13:47
We’re the boys from the banks of the Alt
And we sing this song as we go along
For the lads in the .... oh bollocks!

However, I do remember watching the blues in the mid 80’s and the zulu war cry that echoed around all four sides of the ground when Kevin Sheedy stepped up to take a free kick.
Maybe what I am saying is that we need another war cry . Something that everyone can join in with. I wouldn’t suggest ARRRRRTETAAAAA as it reminds me of URIKAKAKAKA. Maybe LESCOOOOOOOOT. When Jolean comes up for a corner.

We are the scousers
The cock of the north
We hate Man United and City of course
We only drink whiskey and bottles of brown
The Everton boys are in town
Na na na.....
And of course
Street End boys
We are here
Street End boys
We are here
Street end boys
We are here
Shag your women and drink your beer
Whoa whoa whoa.....
If only we could have those times back again.......

I’m over here in Oz now. Been here 26 years but that’s not a bad thing. Nowadays, we get all the Everton games live on Foxtel ( Sky) even got the Zenit game live! The only downside is the bloody time difference.We’ve even got a great supporters club going on over here in Perth. There’s quite a few of us old fella’s in it (mostly Park End boys). Maybe I’ll try to get all the boys to sing all the classics and place it on YOUTUBE!/
LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL
