I think its fitting that I got first crack at this. I will give up trying to change your minds of replacing bluest skies. But i still like the James Taylor song.
Here is another one: I am sure you have seen this one too but its actually Seattle's official song from 1909. couldn't find the tune so we could make it up.

Seattle City Song: "Seattle the Peerless City"
Words by: Arthur O. Dillon
Music by: Glenn W. Ashley

Seattle sits on seven hills,
Her glory is unfurled,
At her feet is Puget Sound,
Where moves The Commerce of the world.

Chorus:
Hail to the Peerless City,
Metropolis of the west,
The gateway to the Orient,
Whom grandeur hath caressed!

Her bosom's gemm'd with pearly lakes,
The mountains tower near;
The fir tree forest skirts her bound;
The beauty of earth is here.

(Chorus)
Her men and women active, proud,
Seattle build sublime,
And greater far than ancient Rome,
The matchless for all time.

(Chorus)
True love and art shall flourish here,
The heart's sweet, tender theme,
Upholders of the truth here dwell,
The dreamers of the Dream.
(Chorus)

You're not going to let this go are you?

I can see this being sung at a bar, not so much before the match...

Truly madly Deeply (to Levesque and/or the goal scorer)


Verse 1:
I'll be your dream
I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy.
I'll be your hope
I'll be your love
Be everything that you need.
I love you more with every breath
Truly madly deeply do..
I will be strong I will be faithful
'Cos I'm counting on a new beginning.
A reason for living.
A deeper meaning.

Chorus:
I want to stand with you on a mountain.
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me...

Verse 2:
And when the stars are shining brightly
In the velvet sky (bluest skies...),
I'll make a wish
Send it to heaven
Then make you want to cry..
The tears of joy
For all the pleasure and the certainty.
That we're surrounded
By the comfort and protection of..
The highest power.
In lonely hours.
The tears devour you..

@null geezus man, at this point i don't care about changing it the pregame song. I realize it's not going to change. And if you noticed my original post didnt say that the song should replace bluest skies. So Null, ease up.

I was giving you shit... Don't worry about me I like the fact even after your first song rejection you came back with something new. Like I said, I like the song so keep up the good work!

dont worry about Null, he is the "ECS Asshole" for a reason, but we wouldnt want it any other way

linked thread instead of posting the song, pick what ever lyrics you want
