Updated for the 2015-2016 Premier League season
Following on from the 2014 World Cup Songs – Every Team project – here’s the domestic version for the Premier League.
Where possible I’ve posted a song that is a cheer for that particular team.
Arsenal, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Everton, Leicester, Liverpool, Man City, Man Utd, Newcastle, Norwich, Southampton, Stoke, Sunderland, Swansea, Tottenham, West Brom, Watord, West Ham
This is the 1972 Arsenal squad with a brass band good old fashioned singalong:
Another very 70’s sounding song from some loyal Villa fans who are in the Holte End:
There’s a band called Sounds Like Adam who first released the song “Eddie’s Army” in 2013. They’ve since re-recorded it for this upcoming Premier League season (video embedded below). I like the acoustic version they recorded inside Dean Court.
The 1972 Chelsea squad with a very well known song, another singalong.
Yes you’ve guessed it, another 1970’s swinging tune. The video version is faster than the audio version below.
You are probably getting the idea now. Another old but classic song.
I don’t know who did this, it’s a lesser known song but a catchy one.
Yet another one done in 1972. What was it about that year?
Here’s a Scotsman with an accordion and a jaunty tune.
Bobby Webber sings about Newcastle and Malcolm Macdonald, who was playing for them in 1972…
Norwich City have the oldest football song in the world. This is the 1959 version:
A bit of big fish/little fish/cardboard box with this bouncy version of the most famous song associated with Southampton – a song once again made famous by Louis Armstrong (Oh When The Saints Go Marching in).
This Stoke City song came out in… guess what year. Really got to look into this 1972 phenomenon.
This is a homemade song from three years ago. It could double as an advert for tourist information, the song and video highlights some of the landmarks of the city.
Roger Evans singing about when Swansea were at their old ground.
This is the 1972-73 Spurs Squad:
So when I went to look for a song traditionally associated with Watford FC I discovered that they use an instrumental version of “Johnny Todd” aka the Z-Cars theme – which is probably more famous with it being Everton’s theme song.
Both clubs using the same tune is very weird. In all his time as chairman, not once did Elton John do a tune for them. So until I can find another song associated with them, here’s Elton performing live at Vickerage Road in 2010 peforming “Your Song”:
This very 1970’s pub singalong with West Ham’s most famous tune.
