Music that Ipswich have run out to

Post by joeheadland » Mon Mar 09, 2020 10:46 pm

Good evening 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
https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10 ... 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 Ipswich 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
Ipswich 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.

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

Hi Joe, i can think of a few songs ITFC has run out to, not so sure about the dates, other than they would have been early 2000s.
They were;
The intro to Welcome to the Jungle by Guns N roses. I am guessing it was around 2003-05 time, as i was in the (now) Sir Alf Ramsey stand and my young nephew used to come to matches with me.
Also Fatboy Slim's 'Right here, right now", which would have been the early days of the North (now the Sir Bobby Robson) stand, perhaps around 2005.
I believe they have also ran out to the same song Chelsea use, "the liquidator"
Would be interested to hear other fans' inputs because there must be so many songs.

Back in the days of Sir Alf's Div Championship team we always ran out to 'Entry of the Gladiators' by Julius Fucik.

This would often be followed by the proper ITFC song 'Keep Right On To The End Of The Road'.

Happy days indeed..

Fantastic to know that BB. That piece of music would be appropriate for our current team to run out to, i mean, isn't this also a popular number at circuses? :lol:

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

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
