    we need an anthem to sing like all the other clubs in europe
    my roommate thinks it should be many shades of back by The Raconteurs

    go ahead, go ahead and smash it on the floor
    take whatever is left, and take it with you out the door
    see if I cry
    see if I shed a single sorry tear
    can't say that it's been that great
    no in fact it's been a wasted worried year

    everybody sees
    and everyone agrees
    that you and I are wrong
    and i'ts been that way to long
    take it as it comes
    and be thankful when it's done
    there's so many ways to act
    and there's many shades of black
    there's so many shades of black


    i don't know what it should be but i do think we need one any other thoughts?

    Look at the stars,
    Look how they shine for you,
    And everything you do,
    Yeah they were all yellow,

    I came along
    I wrote a song for you
    And all the things you do
    And it was called yellow

    So then I took my turn
    Oh all the things I've done
    And it was all yellow

    Your skin
    Oh yeah your skin and bones
    Turn into something beautiful
    D'you know you know I love you so
    You know I love you so

    Insert a Columbus *clap clap clap* and your all set.

    Yellow was the first song they played after the awards ceremony was over last night, fit very well.

    I was quick to call this gay when it was first suggested, but it actually does fit well, and would probably sound good with a lot of people singing it, not to mention that most people, whether they admit it or not, already know the lyrics.

    At the very least, it's manlier than "you'll never walk alone."

    I have to agree after hearing Yellow I thought it fit very well. It describes the passion that we as fans have for the Crew.

    Has anybody tryed to talk to the front office to have them put the words up on the screen or to pass them out before the game?
    It would be nice to sing Yellow as the teams march out on the field on the 8th of November.
    That would be a beautiful sight seeing all of those black and gold scarves and singing Yellow. It would be a truly Massive welcome.

    I would love to be able to sing this as the teams come out, but considering the league spent an ass ton of money on the league anthem for the teams to enter the field to, I doubt that it will fly at that time.

    someone was singing this sweet little piece that Lenhart came up with last night. I will try to find out what it was but it was a kick ass tune. All I know it had to deal with wearing Addias at the end.

    your right we want to be nothing like europe we should go back to having shoot outs from 30 yards out and i don't think we should sing and chant during the games we should just chant defense maybe the crewzerss lead all the cheering

    Bill hasn't sentenced anyone to death by fire, Crewfighter hasn't lost the plot, and Timon hasn't posted his hilarious-but-snarky-political diatribe-Krypto-Hat Trick, so, I guess we're still pretty fresh into this one. Sorry Mike.

    You can't reach step two until the patented Mateo problem exposure post occurs.

    Wow, not sure what to say here.

    I made light of the fact that you said "all the other teams in Europe...". Do you honestly not understand?

    Yep, that means I want to do a hockey style shootout instead of allowing ties. Apparently that's how the rest of the non-european soccer playing world does it. So I think we should too.

    OK maybe I can help here....AHEM.

    I think we should be allowed to sing the Moldavian national Anthem...I mean really!!!
    If there is one thing I cannot stand it's when Don Garber is trying to act like Tina Fey. I mean come on leave George Bush alone.
    Also can anyone recite the whole movie Monty Python's Holy Grail in Yiddish.
    One more thing I like Yellow by Coldplay.

    I can't help but think of Crew when I hear this song:

    Now that all the smoke is gone
    And the battle's finally won
    Victory is finally ours
    History so long, so long, so long

    Jay-Z - History

    If there is a team anywhere in the world that adopted "Afternoon Delight" as their song, I would buy that jersey instantly. Since Houston has the whole NASA connection, maybe they could make it work? (Sky rockets in flight...)

    Other suggestions:

    Red Bulls: New York - Sinatra
    Kansas City: Follow the Yellow Brick Road - Dorothy
    Dallas: Highway to Hell - AC/DC
    Houston: I left my heart in San Francisco - Tony Bennet
    Chivas: La Cucaracha - every 5th grade music class
    New England: Lay Down - O.A.R.
    Galaxy: Wanna be - The Spice Girls
    Real Salt Lake: Friends - Michael W. Smith
    Rapids: South Park Theme
    San Jose: Step by Step - NKOTB
    DC United: Scrubs - TLC
    Chicago: Rape Me - Nirvana

    And finally,

    TFC: Wango Tango - Ted Nugent


    As for the Crew? Could we do worse than any of those? I say we make Coldplay MASSIVE.

    I'm all for "Yellow" by Coldplay. I think it would be cool if they played it over the loudspeakers as the team comes over to the Nordecke and bows. We could all hold up our scarves and sing.
