I created an account specifically to suggest this. I'll be attending my first Sounder's game when we face off against the Timbers in March (look for the Montana flag on the north end of the stadium, we'll be right above it). Anyway, with the recent signing on Shalrie Joseph I would love nothing more than to hear the ECS chanting to the tune of "Rock the Casbah"

Shalrie don't like it!
Fuck the TImbers! Fuck the Timbers!

Sure it's a variation of his fanchant when he was with the Rev's, but why not make the guy feel at home?

Not a song suggestion necessarily, but as I was burning through some old vinyl I came across this song I hadn't heard in years. What a great record this was.

Am pretty new to the ECS forums and was going to start a new thread (if that's possible) before I saw this one. Anyway I had an idea for a very short/simple song (not one with 349 lines) that has a tune everyone knows: Popeye the sailorman. It came from someone noting that Obafemi Martins is very similar to Remy Martins, the fancy liquor. The whole yachts thing is something that is joked about a lot over at Sounder at Heart but not sure if it caught on here, while the backflips thing is about his crazy goal celebrations. Anyway it should still be a good fit given our connection to the Sound and boats in general. Here goes:


"Martins the rave green man,
Does backflips off garbage cans…

On yachts we drink Remy
To toast good old ’Femy

It’s Martins the rave green man!"

(Disclaimer: I am a Sounders fan, but I don't live in Seattle, don't have season tickets, and am thus not a member of ECS; so the status of my opinion is obviously tempered by that. But I appreciate what you guys do)

I generally am a fan of songs that are sung as they were originally written (i.e., without the words changed to sounder-specific ones) but that have meaning with those original words (i.e., Roll on Columbia). At this point, after a year+ I think Gspurning has maybe done enough to be serenaded by ECS. I think that, with him going with the white uni this year, maybe giving him a little rendition of "Edelweiss" would be pretty cool. I also think that the way that song is written (the cadence of the words and the melody) would make it translate to mass group singing quite well.

Just a suggestion. You guys do great work!

from what I have heard Rodgers and Hammerstein have a serious problem with anyone monkeying with their songs legally speaking
from Wiki

Legal problems
The estates of Rodgers and Hammerstein have not authorized the use of alternative lyrics with the melody of the song, making this practice illegal. Rodgers stated that "he would take legal action against any group" using the "Edelweiss" melody with altered words;[7] the current rightsholders comply with his wishes, refusing to grant permission for these requests, which are "inconsistent with the creators' intentions".

we could figure out something for the Austrian National Anthem 1st verse

Land of mountains, land by the stream,
Land of fields, land of cathedrals,
Land of hammers, with a promising future,
Home to great daughters and sons,
A nation highly blessed with beauty,
Much-praised Austria,
Much-praised Austria!

Sung to the chorus of When Irish Eyes Are Smilin'

When the Sounders are a-scorin',
all the world seems bright and gay!
In the tilt of northwest ra-ain
our boys come out to play!
They run down all the others,
and make their keepers cry!
We sing for you, our brothers,
We're Sounders til we die!

And, I believe it's in the public domain in the US.
