Dome Music: A Rant

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; When at the dome, the music is the least of my worries. I just want to witness a win. I am not a big fan of gangsta rap or whatnot but it is a cultural thing and I have learned ...

When at the dome, the music is the least of my worries. I just want to witness a win. I am not a big fan of gangsta rap or whatnot but it is a cultural thing and I have learned to accept it.

Rap is to music what etch-a-sketch is to art.

Think there needs to be something new to catch on. Need a jingle guy.

Re: Dome Music: A Rant

Sounds like a good idea on the surface, changing up the music and all, but to what?

"When the Saints Come Marching In" is not exactly stand up and dance in the aisles music after a touchdown, is it?

I mean, with all of the music genius in New Orleans, you would think SOMEONE would come up with a stinking Fight Song.

I mean come on now, if those freakin' mutants in Philly can come up with "Fly Eagles, Fly" to rock the stadium with, can't the talent of NOLA come up with something?

Re: Dome Music: A Rant

Why do people in this thread keep wishing they would play "When The Saints," they already play "When The Saints" by Fats Domino, after every kicking score.

For the record, I was thinking more of fans chanting, as Crusader pointed out, rather the DJ playing it.

I vote for Skindred's Nobody.

Nobody gets out of this shark pit alive
Nobody, nobody gets out alive!
Nobody gets out an extra breath of life
Nobody, nobody gets out alive!


That'd be just awesome... maybe change shark pit for Superdome.

The swedish fans were chanting and singing the national anthem and after a while the wave started rolling around the stadium and just wouldn't really stop for atleast 15 minutes.
Going to English football grounds is a amazing experience.
My team Liverpool and a london club spurs sing a variations of When the Saints go marching in.They would sound great at the Dome if the crowds started doing them.

Liverpools "When the Reds go marching in" is quicker paced that the Spurs version "When the Spurs go marching in"
Im noy sure how to post videos on here so ill post the links



Couple other songs from Liverpool.The fans have a amazing repuation for creating atmosphere at grounds.Sadly after the hillsborough disaster(i know in the states it is always reported as a hooligan problem,but i can asure it it wasa not.It was caused by poor officiating by the police.They opened a gate and it led to thousands of fans pouring into a couple of pens rather than the whole terrace.Had they opened the fences a the front 96 fans would have returned home) there was a need for all seater stadiums and we had to close the legendary Spion Kop,named after a battle in the Boer war.
Anfield - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fields of Anfield Rd,reworked Irish freedom song Fields of Athenry



The old Kop stand





Sorry to ramble on but its very close to my heart as im sure youll understand.
