Building on the feel-good factor of the last few games, how about trying to get a SUFC 'anthem' going? In the TBV sub-forum, I suggessted this song from Yazoo, and it was met with a positive response, so I thought we could put it to the vote :unsure:

Yazoo, were a band from the 80's, formed of lead singer Alison Moyet (Southend Utd fan) & Vince Clark (Southend Utd fan), and "Only You" is one of their biggest & most recognisable hits. The chorus is very easy to remember & sing (for the daytrippers) and it woud play well accoustically around the ground (imo) :thumbsup:

Looking from a window above
It's like a story of love
Can you hear me?
Came back only yesterday
I'm moving farther away
Want you near me

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you

Sometimes when I think of her name
When it's only a game
And I need you
Listen to the words that you say
It's getting harder to stay
When I see you

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you
All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you

This is going to take a long time
And I wonder what's mine
Can't take no more (can't take no more)
Wonder if you'll understand
It's just the touch of your hand
Behind a closed door

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you

Not suitable, I'm afraid. It's a great song, by two Shrimpers fans. Alison's voice is tremendous. But, the song's not suitable I'm afraid. If we're searching for a Southend connection then Eddie & the Hot Rods single Do Anything You Wanna Do, a hit from 1977, might be better, not least because it needs to be shouted rather than sung:

Why don't you ask them what they expect from you ?
Why don't you tell them what you're gonna do
Do anything you wanna do

Looking from a division above,
You might not understand the love,
For The Shrimpers,
Watching Man U on Sky TV,
Is no way to watch your footie (sorry but it scans!)
On your sofa,

All we needed was to hire Phil Brown.
For all his players now the love has grown,

And all I ever knew......beating Col Ewe.

But surely there is already a Moyet song out there actually written for SUFC - "Blue"

Another northern sky
another motorway parade
another day like this
whatever will be will be
and we will be in Shrewsbury (do I have to go)

Do I have to go
Could I ever stay away
And you never know
Tonight our luck could change
And we'll be flying all the way (going all the way)
A late point and I'll be laughing
And Saturday won't seem so bleak
With you, Blue

Ever a stepping stone
Someone's Mickey Mouse affair
We're so unfashionable
But I'm not with you for your stylish hair Or the seaside air (if we ever get there)
Tell me we've acquired a striker (Stanley)
And a lucrative sponsorship came through (on a free)
Will you, Blue
Can we not buy someone famous
And pull a crowd we can't contain at all
All true, Blue

Maybe we'll never tread the grass that grows around your feet
And you let us in for weighting tables like we live to feed
And not to eat (but we get a seat)
Three points and the living's easy
And every day's a Saturday
With you, true blue
Saturday
