6/3/09: TURN THIS INTO A POSITIVE. The Solution To The Nordecke's Profanity Problems Right Here.



3 RESPECTED CHANT LEADERS (ONE FROM EACH GROUP)
+
3 LOUD MEGAPHONES
+ NEW CHANTS (GIVE THE LEADERS SHEETS WITH THE OLD ACCEPTABLE CHANTS ALONG WITH THE NEW ONES)
= DROWN OUT SWEAR CHANTS WITH BETTER STUFF


Simple as that. I don't know who will finance the megaphones. But, maybe the FO will just do it, since they could do without the headache along with the rest of us. I don't know if the supporters groups would purchase one each seperately, but with a push in the right direction new chants could be introduced through megaphones and some swear chants would be overcome by more creativity. Something needed in the section. And, listen I don't have a big deal with swearing personally, but these chants are much more interesting and better than things like GTFO. Seriously, what is the point of singing GTFO against teams with no away fans like San Jose or Colorado? It doesn't make any sense. So, let's just all get on board. It could be a really good thing for the section. Making us a 100 times better.

Basically, chant leaders could start spreading the word more effectively with new stuff through megaphones, while drowning out stuff like GTFO.

HERE ARE MULTIPLE CHANT IDEAS THAT JUST NEED SOME LEADERS TO START THEM ON A MEGAPHONE. I THINK THE MAIN REASON FOR THE SWEAR CHANTS IS BECAUSE NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO INTRODUCE ENOUGH CREATIVE ALTERNATIVE'S TO REPLACE THEM. BECAUSE THE SECTION IS CHAOS AND UNORGANIZED.



"WE'LL BE COMING DOWN THE ROAD!"

We'll be coming!!!
We'll be coming!!!
We'll be coming down the road!!!
When you hear the cry of Columbus Til I Die!!!
We'll be coming down the road!!!



"COLUMBUS IS THE GREATEST TEAM THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN" (until 1:05 mark above):

Columbus is the greatest team the world has ever seen!!!
(more emphasis)Columbus is the greatest team the world has ever seen!!!
Were gonna win today!! Were gonna make a scene!!!
Columbus is the world’s greatest team!!
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LAH LA LAH! ( Start clapping)
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LAH LA LAH!
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!!
GLORY GLORY GLORY TO THE CREW!!!
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LAH LA LAH!! ( Start clapping)
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LAH LA LAH!!
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!!
GLORY GLORY GLORY TO THE CREW!!!

HORTO MAGIKO:


The English version from Melbourne Victory:


Lyrics for Horito Majiko:
so magical
oh columbus is so wonderful
and coz of you, we know for sure!!
our hearts will sing forevermore!!
and when we do!!
you know that noise!!
came from the jumpin northern corner columbus boys!!!
it's what we do, it's all for you!!
this is our massive team, the columbus crew!!!
so who are we (repeat)!!
we are the boys (repeat)!!
were from the nordecke and where gonna make some noise, make some noise!!!!!!!
for our boys (repeat)!!
and you will see (repeat)!!!
where gonna jump and sing our club to victory!!!!!!

BUM BUM KLATSCH NORDECKE:



OH WHEN THE CREW COME MARCHING IN (SLOWED DOWN TOTTENHAM STYLE):


We're all standing for Columbus Crew!!!



We're all standing for Columbus Crew!!
Columbus Crew!!
It's wonderful!!

We're all standing for Columbus Crew!!
COLUMBUS CREW!!
It's wonderful!!

We're all standing for Columbus Crew!!
Fighting for our club!!
Until we're black and blue!!

We're all standing for Columbus Crew!!
Columbus Crew!!
It's a duty, only for the massive few!!

And, those are only a select few, of probably the top ideas, mentioned recently in the threads online.

I posted this earlier today, which led to this idea:
"If "YSA" goes along with (deservedly) "GTFO" we better damn sure have some new chants waiting in the wings to replace them right away.

Actually the best thing for the Nordecke, would be a capo with a mic, and "Columbus is the Greatest," "Horto Magiko", Kev's new chant and others tried by a leader on the mic. I know it would be tough, since it's SOOO hard(roll eyes), and no one likes to think outside the box, and we like being a disheveled mess, and yada yada yada. And, yes we tried it before early 2008, but since our megaphone stunk we threw in the towel.

But, the main solution, is some actual damn organization.

A leadership that everyone in the Nordecke respects would be good as well. It seems to me if your in HSH, CSU, or LTA. You're not going to follow anyone outside of those groups.

If each group would go the same way on some sort of plan, the rest of the Nordecke would follow.

It's never going to happen though like that easily.. Too much politics. If one person stands up and starts chanting on a mic, the others will ignore it because he isn't HSH, LTA, or CSU.

Well, my solution is how about three respected people, with one from each group and they work together on three megaphones to get the new chants going and to drown out the old swear ones and to add more creative stuff."

The more creative stuff is mentioned above.

All that is needed is some creative minds, some openness to new fresh ideas, and 3 megaphones.

  1. The English version from Melbourne Victory is epic that would be really tight but its just a matter of everyone learning it...WE NEED NEW SONG SHEETS. AND LOTS OF THEM

  2. The reason those two frowned upon chants are used is because they are simple and they are being repeated constantly. How many games does the average Crew supporter attend? Outside of season ticket holders and Nordecke-ians probably just one or two a season. Crew fans (and Crew stadium visitors) can pick up frequent chants quickly but not songs, especially when they have no idea what the lyrics are (sometimes it's difficult to understand the words). Maybe the Nordecke can come up with a program for each game (with support from the FO) that includes that information. FreeKick or whatever it's called does not contain anything useful anyway. Revenue from the sale of these programs could go into the Megaphone fund.

  3. I see all these being sweet....except for the last one.

    And as I said before, all we need is for the big guy to start up the Slooooooooooooow When the Crew Go Marching in, and then at the end, we pick up the pace and it becomes even better than before.

  4. To Frank:

    You don't need to understand them! In England, there are times where it actually just sounds like they are making noise. As long as you know what you're saying, it doesn't matter how it sounds. Most people won't remember the words anyways

  5. Wow some of these chants would be EPIC. Let's get 'em rolling!

  6. Bum Bum Klatsch, We'll be comin down the road, and the Spurs one are the three best. They'll be easy for everyone to catch onto as well. The longer songs, while they are good, are just too long to get everybody into them.

  7. We'll be coming down the road really needs to be tried. Its easy to remember and it sounds really good. It could be the "We love u" of this year.

  8. We'll be coming sounds sweet and is really catchy.

  9. Love the idea. Though, wouldn't it be cool to say "is wunderbar" instead of saying "it's wonderful" for that Rammstein one? Another reference to Columbus' German roots!

    Pleeeeze promote 'We all root for a Yellow Soccer Team' if this gets going. That's a fun one that I'm sure will catch on more.

  10. Thanks for your comments guys and I agree with each of them.

    I believe We'll be comin down the road and Columbus Is The Greatest and about 2-3 others could be like 5 we love you's in one year. :-)

  12. -We HAVE to do the BUM BUM KLATSCH NORDECKE chant. Say "Go Columbus *clap clap clap, clap clap clap*"

    -"We'll be coming" sound wonderful, it's a must do also.

    -For the Johnny Comes Marching Home, We should do the Frankie Hejduk chant that everybody is talking about :

    "He chugged a beer in a fan's truck bed,
    HEJDUK! HEJDUK!
    Columbus til I die he said,
    HEJDUK! HEJDUK!
    The black and gold's heart and soul,
    He steals the ball and stops a goal,
    Frankie Hejduk, Columbus' number two,

    Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na,, na na,, na na !
    Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na,, na na,, na na !

    The black and gold's heart and soul,
    He steals the ball and stops a goal,
    Frankie Hejduk, Columbus' number two !"
