Music Bolton have run out to

Post by joeheadland » Thu Mar 19, 2020 11:29 am

Hi everyone,


I hope this okay to post here, moderators please move or delete if you need to.



I’m part of a team at the University of Sheffield, led by Dr Chris

Stride. We've published a number of academic papers and magazine

articles relating to football history, on subjects such as statues and

replica shirts (see, for example sportingstatues.com, and

www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/17 ... 19.1578255).



Our current project is investigating the music that football teams have

run or walked out of the tunnel to over the years.



We are looking for the music that Bolton have run out to, for as

many seasons in the past as you can recall. We are simply interested in

the title of the song, the artist who recorded it, and for which seasons

Bolton ran out to this.
Any help you can give us to

piece together the different songs that your club has run out to would

be hugely appreciated.


We realise that in recent years the 633 Squadron theme has been used. Can anyone remember what tracks were used before this? If you can recall roughly what season it was played in as well, then that is much appreciated too.



If you have any personal anecdotes around the reasons for the songs

being used, or the changes between them, that would also be fantastic.



I should also add that we are not interested in goal music, or a song

that is played at the final whistle, but just the song that is on the

tannoy system as the players enter the field.



If you think someone else may be able to help, or you have any

questions, please let us know! We would be very happy to discuss the

project.



Cheers



Joe Headland

Campionne 2000 by E-Type was around for a while - early 2000's I think (hence title of song....)?

Hearts of courage by Two Steps from Hell as well I think - around 2014-6 ish?

90s at Burnden was Children by Robert Miles.

First few years at Reebok was The Wanderer song that the club commissioned. Not the Dion one
"Get your feet off the furniture you Oxbridge tw*t. You're not on a feckin punt now you know"

TD that was goal celebration music not music that the team ran out onto the pitch to.

I was thinking earlier of 'here we go again' by Paul and the Bolton sound, but again it wasn't a song that the team ran out to.

Not heard it for ages. It's still our goal celebration tune.

Sobre a terra, sobre o mar,
Às armas, às armas!
Pela Pátria lutar!

Thank you for commenting and sharing your memories. It's much appreciated and is invaluable to the project.

When do you all (roughly) remember 633 Squadron first being used?

We're still on the lookout for songs, so if anyone remembers anymore, or can confirm other suggestions, drop us a line.

If you remember roughly what season even better!
Cheers,
Joe

Didn't we have a spell of Queen's "We will rock you?" I can remember Lofty Lion leading it at a sparse Wimbledon Embankment end on a night match at Burnden eons ago. Always enjoyed that one....

Maybe the club could revive, "My world is a football" I actually have that on a CD.
