Apt Song Titles for Boro!

Recommended Posts

Time to inject a bit of humour, which MFC fans are famous for covering our current situation, and what better way to use song titles that can reflect the way things are.

Will start it off but hey for a laugh please do add a few of your own apt song titles.

"We've gotta to get out of this place" 

"Things can only get better"

And perchance we get a win on Saturday

"Ain't no stopping us now, we are on the move"

Not that it's something I'd ever listen to but this sounds pretty apt:

Fall Out Boy - "Sugar, We're Goin Down"

Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now - The Smiths

Its Grim Up North - The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu

Down In A Hole - Alice In Chains

Nothing Ever Happens (for 90 minutes) - Del Amitri

Can't Buy A Thrill Goal - UFO

No-one Knows (what they're doing) - Queens Of The Stone Age

Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming - Deep Purple

SOS - ABBA / Fozzy

This Is the New S**t (same as the old s**t?) - Marilyn Manson

 

Or instead of getting all angsty and depressed, you could lay your hands on some ganja and a packet of Rizlas and let your cares drift away with:

Don't Worry Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin

Ashley Fletcher - "Oops I did it again" (hit it over the bar, and we lost the game... oh baby baby....)

 

Britt - I can't fight this feeling any assombalonga (And yet I'm still afraid he's far too slow...)

 

If we get relegated: Shotton Down In A Blaze Of Glory

Seeing as I've practically lost all the passion I had... 

It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)

Given the way the club has been run recently, The Idiots Are Taking Over by NoFX seems very appropriate. Some of the lyrics are bob on as well:

"It's not the right time to be sober, now the idiots have taken over."

"Insensitivity is standard and faith is being fancied over reason."

"Now everything seems to be reversing, and it's worsening."

"Now angry mob mentality's no longer the exception, it's the rule, and I'm starting to feel a lot like Charlton Heston, stranded on a primate planet. Apes and orangutans that ran it to the ground, with generals and the armies that obeyed them. Followers following fables, philosophies that enable them to rule without regard."

 

If that's too cerebral, can I also suggest a good song title for our current predicament would be Everything's F**ked by Pitchshifter?

I'd like to say Talking Heads - Road to nowhere but sadly we know where Boro are likely to be going, down, so...

As the table apparently lies I'll go for The Hollies - Can't tell the bottom from the top.

For a feel good factor how about just cranking the volume up on Pigbag - Papa's got a brand new pigbag, feeling good and not giving a flying :D

Some years ago I heard or read somewhere that McClaren when manager put the league table on the information board at the MFC . We were apparently low in the league at the time and he had reversed it to  apparently " give the lads a boost."

Perhaps I heard it wrong but it as stuck with me and I often smirk at the thought of what must have been going through the players heads then.

So on that thought I would like to nominate The Beatles... Magical Mystery Tour .

After all I am sure a lot of us will be getting taken away to the funny farm by the end of the season.

Just thought of this one:

Oh My God - Kaiser Chiefs

 

If we end up getting well beaten, the fans could sing something like:

"Oh my God I can't believe it...we've never been quite this crap before..."

 

Now I think about it, we can make a full song of it:

 

Verses

Time running out, wonder where it went

Worst fifty million that we ever spent

Wearing a shirt with Gestede's name on it

Falling down the league like Halley's comet

 

Too much time passing backwards & sideways

So depressing watching how this team plays

Settling now for a goalless draw

Same excuses from the match before

 

Bridge

Its a scandal to me

All I want us to be

Is in a safe mid table station

Not staring at relegation

 

Chorus

Oh my god I can't believe it

We've never quite been this crap before
