This one kept me and a mate alive at freezing Port Vale once, bouncing to it being played over the tannoy
at half time...

Just another song for me before then, I've always liked it since and it makes me smile, remembering us then, looking around and seeing others frantically doing the same like pogoing penguins. Bigsmile

"Champagne Supernova", played Chelsea away, Linda got the equaliser, went round Camden straight after, Oasis were at Earls Court same night, went in Underworld and they played that, 03:00am, stood on dancefloor, soaked in sweat and beer, singing that with about 300 other people, all off their heads.

Going further back........

"Running in the family - Level 42", beat West Ham in cup 2 - 0, half time, freezing cold, that was playing, as a kid, vivid memories of the match and thinking cup runs were gonna happen every year! 

she said, 'I know you boy you cannot sing', I said, 'that's nothing, you should hear me play piano'

This, for me, is the spookiest connection for decades.

I've just got in from the pub, made some supper, put the radio on and sat down to see what's been posted on here. The first thread and post I read is this one and whilst my eyes focus on Tom's post: "Come on feel the noise", guess what's playing loud on Planet Rock Radio? Shock

The first time EVER I've heard them play Slade on Planet Rock.

Very, very spooky, that. (Except that Alice Cooper has just announced that that was the Quiet Riot version.) Grr

It'll still do for New Zealand related spooky for me. http://www.planetsmilies.com/smilies/confused/confused0085.gif

Mine's a bit odd in that I can't remember the exact game - but it was an away night game.

West End Girls by the Pet Shop Boys was played and one of the mates I used to go to away games with back then starting going crazy shouting "rubbish" "shite" and so on. He was very seriously into music and was into bands like Cabaret Voltaire and particularly New Order. I think he saw the Pet Shop Boys as a poor poppy version of his genre of music, in a similar way in that as an indie OAP I hate to think of the likes of Coldplay being thought of of being representative of my music.

Anyway, whenever I hear West End Girls I'm always transported back to that terrace (even though I can't remember which one it was) and my mate's complete over reaction to a song being played over the tannoy.

I haven't seen him for close on 30 years, so haven't had the chance to get his opinion on the Bernie and Neil Tennant collaborations over the years. 

Tell mi mam, mi mam, I don't want no tea, no tea, I'm watching the Wednesday, tell mi mam, mi mam

They came close to representing us on Eurovision, Tom! Wow

"Great Britain, nil points."

"FOOK OFF, DENMARK!!!"

Wednesday 3 Millwall 0, 1989. Millwall (amazingly) were 5th at the time, but we absolutely leathered them. For me, it was the first real sign of how much better it was going to be under Ron. Steve Whitton got 2 and Carlton capped a rampaging performance with the third. After the turgid days of latter period Wilko and whole period Eustace, it was a truly uplifting footballing showing, the like of which we not been used to for some considerable time.
The song that very appropriately came on at the final whistle was 'Good Life' by Inner City. No sooner had the opening line "Let me take you to a place I know you wanna go, its a good life" been played, my mate launched into a completely mad celebratory robotic break dance, complete with a great deadpan expression to boot. People around us in the North Stand were laughing their heads off at him - he was so brilliantly bad he was good, and it turned an already good vibe into a great one. A Wednesday memory that always makes me smile.

Love random stuff like that!

That era was ace (well the relegation a few months later wasn't), we were improving week on week and the football was getting better and better, remember walking out of kop after we'd beat Derby, Shez had a good game, bassline to Dub Be Good To Me pumping out.........good times! 

she said, 'I know you boy you cannot sing', I said, 'that's nothing, you should hear me play piano'

Couldn't give you a specific game, but when I hear Joe Cocker's Delta Lady I'm back in my first season at Hillsborough 1969/70 it was played a lot pre game.
