You're not singing anymore

by Minnie Birch

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    A collection of traditional songs, which are often well known for being sung on the football terraces, are reworked in this exciting new collection. Marrying football terrace songs and folk music in a unique project which celebrates the tradition of singing on the football terraces.

    I love a good folk club with a sing around, where else do people come together to sing on mass, besides perhaps at church? …The football terraces, that is where.


    Football Chants  are one of the lasting oral traditions of our time, they are sung by hundreds of thousands of people who do not consider themselves ‘folkies’ ‘musicians’ ‘historians’ ‘social commentators’ but this is exactly what I think these people are.


    It is hard to pin down origins of terrace songs. Teams will take a chant from other fans. If a player with a decent chant transfers to them – it is often just a case of singing a new colour, someone can easily be “Born to be Blue” one season and then “Born to be Red” another! Club specific songs are hard to pin down – I have had some great conversations with people who insist that a chant is “theirs” rather than someone else's it’s a bit like trad folk in that way.

    Football chants and terrace songs are designed to encourage your team on to a win, or discredit and distract the opposing team. Some of them are mean, angry, offensive, some of them are encouraging, social commentary, heartfelt, proud – just like the people who sing them-they have their light and their dark.
