Midfield song - It's something special
« on: May 24, 2019, 10:10:23 AM »
Daydreaming on my way to work this morning, and End of a Century by Blur came on the radio.
Songwriting brain kicked in.

"Our midfield has Gini Wijnaldum,
Jimmy Milner, Jordan Henderson,
Naby Keita and Fabinhooooooooo,
They play for Liverpooooool,
It's something special."

https://youtu.be/ik_gspY9qVc
[Chorus at 32 seconds]

Had the tune to The Universal in my head instead ;D

“Our midfield has Giniii,
James Milner and Nabyyyy,
And our captain Hendo,
Ox and Fabinho,
A really, really, really good midfield,
Yes a really, really, really good midfield,
And the guys just seem to run and run
And some... times they scoooore.”

Belter. On the Kop any day now.

What do you mean? How can "It's something special" not fit when the original is "It's nothing special"? It scans exactly the same.  :hump

In 2020 no midfield song can work.

Cos we got too many decent midfielders!!!!

We also don't have a set or strongest midfield. It changes based on a few variables.
Blame Klopp!

https://youtu.be/ik_gspY9qVc
[Chorus at 32 seconds]
I like the song but that doesn't scan well in my head. How about something like this?

We sing
The reds have a midfield
It's pretty fucking awesome
It picks up the pieces
And makes a lot of chances

Henderson is at it,
Our Gini is enchanted
Fabinho is fearsome,
Naby Keita dancing
Two-footed

(Chorus)
They all play, they want to get the ball
They close the spaces, they never stop at all
They tackle hard and they're always in the fiiiiggghht
Our fucking midfield ooooooohhh
Our fucking midfield ooooooohhh
It's something special."

(That baby Keita bit could also just be the other names, IE
Naby Keita, Milner
And Oxlade)

That's brilliant, but why Change the second line at all/so much? Also helps people get it...

Fir-mi-no
There he goes again (or scoring goals again)
The Kop will sing his name

...and the last two lines are great, just perfect!

Coming to think of it, how the fuck has that tune not been used far more often as a footy chant? It's absolutely got everything a chant needs - ridiculously catchy melody, really easily adaptable lyrics, the earworm part is short and infinitely repeatable and you could totally see a terrace doing something like bouncing and shouting for the guitar riff bit before going again.

Cheers mate. I thought the same about it never being used before, especially with it being a scouse band you'd think ourselves or Everton would have picked up on it, and yeah could proper imagine the guitar riff going off on a concourse or in an alehouse after the game  ;D

I think the "Oh campione, the one and only" song may have started on here. Certainly I can say without any shadow of a doubt the "Oh campione" bit deffo did.   ;)
