Its actually nae that bad being honest - actually some will quite like it and obvious be a few negative comments but better than a few efforts i've heard recently. The guy posted it on pie and bovril site - see link to pie and bovril at the bottom if you want to contact him.

Nu Era - Aberdeen European Song 07-08

 

 

 

Verse 1 (Qualifying)

 

 

 

The Dons came crashing back to Europe at the Meteor

 

It’s been five long years but now we’re back for more

 

Mackie’s bullet header took us to Group B

 

And reminded us of that final

 

In 1983

 

 

 

Chorus

 

 

Back into Europe, back where we belong

 

From the Granite City, Stand Free is our song

 

With Jimmy, Diamond, Smith and Miller to lead the way

 

Manchester doesn’t

 

Seem so far away

 

 

 

Verse 2 (Group Stages)

 

 

 

Well you can keep your Greek Gods, Takis Fyssas too

 

You might have beat us 3-0 but you weren’t very good

 

Moscow brought the weather to Pittodrie

 

1-1 the score

 

still awaiting victory

 

 

 

We went out to the Madrid to face their second team

 

To play against their superstars it really was a dream

 

The dream turned into a nightmare on and off the park

 

And the table didn’t look good

 

Barely off the mark

 

 

 

We had to win when Copenhagen came to town

 

Christiansen and Allback all had smiles turned into frowns

 

Jamie Smith stole the show with his wonder goals

 

You could have drove a Dave Bus

Through their defensive holes

 

 

 

Chorus -> Solo (Melody)

 

 

 

Verse 3 (Munich)

 

 

 

We qualified from the Group of Death with Bayern next to play

 

25 years on and we’re out to repeat history

 

But Alex Ferguson and Willie Miller’s time has come and gone

 

We now have new heroes

 

To cheer on

 

 

 

We had no lead or cushion when we left for the Allianz

 

In the first leg our team shocked you, shocked even our own fans

 

The result in Munich came as no surprise

 

The amazement being

 

We got one in reply

 

 

 

Verse 4 (Reflection)

 

 

 

The European adventure is over after all

 

We played in many countries, five in total

 

We played in eight matches, albeit winning only one

 

But we had fun in the the Marienplatz

 

And the square in Sol

 

 

 

Chorus (Altered) (x2)

 

 

Back into Europe back where we belong

 

From the Granite City, Stand Free is our Song

 

With Jimmy, Diamond, Smith and Miller to lead the way

Manchester didn’t

Seem so far away

If anyone has any questions about the song just ask.

 

Meteor = Dnipro Stadium

Nightmare on and off the park = beaten 2-0 and cops beat Dons fans up (in Madrid) etc.

 

If anyone has accounts on Ab Mad, AFC Chat and Red Ultras please spread the word and give me feedback. Much appreciated. Stand free!

I bet you have played Chas and Dave though ;D - well the last listen had the pet shop boys and some annoying lassie voice singing girls just want to have fun - name escapes me funny enough. Anyway i like that piss take that the listeners have to pick the best tune out of two terrible records.

 

I don't think its a bad effort - think sweetchuck is correct is its not cheesy/catchy to really take off but nice effort.

 

Off topic slightly i presume you have got the new sigur ros album and listened online to it as well.

Funnily enough no I don't have it yet. I may have to rectify that when I get home. I do have the first song though.

 

Of course I have played Chas n Dave. They were up for the vote.

 

I have also played

 

Labi Siffre - I Got The Blues

 

which featured Chas n Dave as session musicians and was later sampled by eminem.  :thumbsup:

 

Lol - you can listen to the album from Sigur Ros website. I'm just giving it a blast just now - hope its as good as Bon Iver :)
