Songs we no longer sing because they are date stamped

I think a lot of folk are just listing songs we don't sing now :D

Back to the date stamped bit, there's one song that won't be dropped but will need to be altered in time, and what a sad day that'll be.

Hahaha.

Yes, I'd started to realise that myself :)

Or,

Could it be that we're stealth creating an on the bus only song library for the kids :D

As far as I recall, that song was sung never sung by us. It was sung by the scum as in "You'll be watching The Bill....."

Our response was to turn up wearing London Bobby style helmets after their capitulation in 'Suville.'
I managed to get one for the title decider in 2003, remember getting pissed off at people grabbing it.
I had my title winning cigar under it just waiting to be lit!

With apologies to the OP:

“Roamin up the Shankhill with a lily in my hand,
Roamin up the Shankhill with a wee accordion band,
When the band begins to play,
Fcuk your Pope and the IRA,
Oh thank %^*& I’m no a Roman Catholic. “

When I think of that song I now think of Austin powers for some reason.

Sorry for being pedantic but Shankill.

Correction: Deans' penalty miss was in the EC semi-final against Inter Milan, the same night in 1972 that we beat Bayern Munich in the ECWC semi-final.

Good thread.

It's amusing how people get stroppy when a rehash is suggested.

I can recall the thread about David Cooper Templeton and there were people whinging it was disrespectful to Davie Cooper to sing the same song for him.

There's only one Tony Vidmar
He's the man from Australia
With a shot like thunder
From down under
Walking in a Vidmar wonderland

In pub near Hampden prior to Orange Cup Final

In a matter of weeks, or months depending on how far we go, our Baku song will soon become a thing of the past due to the fact the reference to Baku date stamps it.

Personally that’s disappointing because I feel it’s a cracking wee song that definitely gets the stadium going as proven against Vienna and Hearts.

That got me thinking about what other songs from past eras that we no longer sing due to being date stamped.

For example, ‘Warburtons is magic’ and ‘we’ll be watching The Bill while you’re in Seville’ type songs that you’re not likely to hear again.

What’s your favourite or least favourite date stamped sing song?
Personally I think we’ll be singing it in May ......
Forever optimistic loyal

When I first started going to Rangers games in the 60's, one song that was always sung, was 'Dolly's Brae.'

Couldn't remember the last time that I heard that been belted out

Last time I sang that was on a stinking wet night in 1991, in the old North Enclosure at Hampden, when we beat the Scum F.C. in the semi final!
Happy days!
