Playlist for Arsenal announced
- Fri 11 Sep 2009, 1:49PM
With over 277 posts the team at Umbro have had a great (and tough) time trying to select this weekend's Umbro Playlist for Saturday's game against Arsenal.
Entries that gave us hope but were dashed at the last minute included:
Joshua 'Tevez' Hornby with 'Flux' - Bloc Party, 'Use Somebody' - Kings of Leon and then 'Eye of the Tiger'... oh dear.
Lars Kristian Nerum (from Norway) David Bowie - 'Heroes', Foo Fighters - 'My Hero' and then... Nickelback - 'Saturday Night is Alright for Fighting'. Lars, what were you thinking!?
Jay Ashton with Led Zeppelin - 'Whole Lotta Love', Muse - 'Knights of Cydonia' and then House of Pain - 'Jump Around'. Hmmmm...
It's a good job the City strike force are better at finishing that some of you lot.
Anyway, the list goes on and we had to settle on a winner, so we're pleased to say 'nice one' to Phil Horsfield who's selected:
Stone Roses - 'Made of Stone
Charlatans - 'North Country Boy'
James - 'Destiny Calling'
Oh, and before you all get narked about the Roses being there, Reni (drummer) is a life-long City fan and a quote from him adorns the City Store. 'North County Boy' is a top song, needing no explanation and James with 'Destiny Calling' seems rather appropriate.
So, for West Ham on Monday 28th September we are setting a theme to get all you musos really stretching your back catalogues. After all there are only so many combinations of Oasis, Kasabian and Doves we can get inspired by.
The theme: Blue
That's it. Songs by, for, about 'Blue'. In whatever way you think. Just make sure your selection inspires and excites the stadium for what, we hope, will be a fantastic Blue Monday at CoMS. Winner chosen the Friday before as usual.
Submit your tunes, as always, on the City Facebook page
Thanks to you all again and we look forward to your entries.
