Discussion in 'The Hornets' Nest - Watford Chat' started by Hornet4ever, Apr 16, 2019.
How about the theme to "Softly, softly", The Bill or "Juliet Bravo" as a compromise ?
Quique’s aunt was a huge singing star In Spain.
Maybe her belting out Una Paloma Blanca?
Have you heard how we (Everton) have started preceding Z Cars with an air raid siren? It's gone down pretty well up here.
and also 'overpriced hand job'
Cant they play z cars before the Elton track or ideally vice versa??? sad to lose it altogether. Wasnt the last time we ditched it under Vialli? that went well!!
I'm still standing is the 2nd best after z cars for me cos they played it on the radio during our car ride home after we beat kaiserslautern that was quite magical but still only 1% of the magic of z cars.
I guess if we lose the cup final and dont come 7th we can blame the c*** who killed z cars for jinxing us.
This thread should not be here. I've just read the terms & conditions of 'The Hornets Nest'
I prefer the theme to Hill Street Blues, myself. Or Fireman Sam.
Just reminded me. Knox Carnocan of the Vibrators was from these parts. This track would be very appropriate as Sandringham Road was hit by a doodle-bug.
That would be quality to run out to
I hope I'm not breaking any rules posting this but here is our rendition with the air raid sirens. Personally z cars makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
That’s absolutely awesome!!
Did everton copy that off bellew, or was it the other way round? That's great, everton do seem to appreciate z cars more than we ever did.
I can understand why we'd play an elton john song, it's just a shame they are all pretty lousy.
We copied Bellew. He's a massive blue.
So did anyone win the singing contest ?
I think you’ve invented freestyle anagrammatisation.
Let’s do a mashup like in the darts.
Splicing together together Pink Floyd & 7 Nation Army is more brilliant than Beethoven.
With that walk on, you win.
I’ve been scouring Elton’s back catalogue since the semi & the most appropriate, at this stage of the season, is Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.
Putting on my record producer’s hat, can I hear a call & response between the LGT & the UGT?
I think the Lowers would have to be the dungaree wearing Kikis.
Wearing Kiki's what exactly?!
What is the collective noun for 'Kikis'?
A 'Mouthful of Teeth'?
The second Kiki does look like a west African dictator with houses in Switzerland but I think the overall point stands.
No idea what it is, of course.
My daughter made her first game in a few today -
As I'm Still Standing she just said - what, what, what. The day went down hill from there
It lacks the instantly recognisable drum roll - that lets you know the games about to start, and gets the adrenaline going.
and results have been a bit shabby since we switched.
If we must have Elton singing - Pinball Wizard?
I think Lincoln use the air raid siren as well, followed by the Dambusters March
Maybe we could have the sounds of screeching hyenas as they come out?
Let me get this right, people are thinking the z cars replacement is responsible for our dip in results?
So what caused it for the previous 3 seasons?
Footballers are a superstitious lot. The thing is, we were unbeaten since boxing day, things are going really well, so why change something just for the sake of it? There was no reason to change the walk out tune. I actually look forward to it, but that's just a personal thing. I means something to me.
I like EJ songs, but it does absolutely nothing as a walk out tune. The fact we've lost 2 and just about scrambled a point in the 3 home matches since the change is clearly coincidental, but I can't think what's the rationale behind changing it mid-season. Makes no sense, and I think the club f***ed up in doing that.
It's the drum roll at the start of z cars which is the cue to get on your feet and start clapping.
No such lead in for I'm still standing and not something to sing too which is I thought the whole point of changing to something new.
If it was me would be Thunderbirds hugely uplifting and easy to sing too, sometimes we need rescuing , sometimes we play as if made of wood and sometimes we reach the stars.
Feeling upset about losing today, Wolves are such a scummy bunch.
Vote with your feet m8. Barca just won the leeg in Spain, you should be happy.
We always win the league. Done it 26 times. We didn't play that well, but Messi managed to nick one which was enough.
Will be in Spain to see the semi on Weds. But it means more, to me anyway, when Watford do something special, because it rarely happens. Barca win something every season. If we miss out this season, then next season we won't. I expect we'll win the CL this year.....again, although that would be a little more exciting as we've only won that 5 times, so it's not that boring to win it.
I was all for Z Cars being ditched, it was dated and tinny sounding. But I think I was wrong. With I'm Still Standing everybody does this weird rhythmic clapping thing with no singing, when we had Z Cars it seemed like people were making noise to drown it out. Now everyone stands in silent bemusement, clapping like trained seals.
I'm Still Standing doesn't work, unfortunately. Bring back Z Cars.
Good points, can't argue with the superstitious thing. You've convinced me.
This all day. Bring. It. Back.
Not a fan of Z-cars but if you’re going to replace it, more thought needs to go into the best alternative before you do so. I have no issue with a song by Elton as without him we wouldn’t be where we are. However, I’d rather him write something new and more fitting for teams coming out for a match than just use something from his back catalogue. I hear he’s not bad at writing tunes.
I hate Z-Cars!
I hate the song our former owner chose to replace it!
Brung back Z-Cars as I'm upset!
If people grabbed hold of it I think it could become a great song for us. Some of the lyrics are almost perfect for a small club taking on the big boys and a reminder that we did it before and we’re back doing it again. The 1881 could start it by signing up, songs sound more ‘tribal’ like when sung by a crowd and it’ll spread. Give it a year or two and it’ll be normal that everyone joins in and we have a new tradition.
I’d suggest everyone sings ‘we’re still standing’.
And some of the other lyrics include
‘And did you think this fool could never win,
Well look at me I’m coming back again’
‘Don’t you know I’m standing better than I ever did,
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid’
Plus it’s Elton.
