I thought it would be fun to make a thread showing the tunes where our chants and songs come from. I always find it really neat when I hear a song on the radio or somewhere and recognize the tune from our drunken rabble rousing.

So here's a few selections of songs that have been adapted to chants:

"Allez, Allez, Allez Allez Allez, Edmonton, Edmonton, Oh FC Edmonton!"

The best part of this one is the bagpipes at 2:45. Lance do you know this one?

"How hiiiiiiiiigh do you want the net?"

I really hope that we can record chants. Whether at Mike's studio or someone recording our section. Slap them on the website for people to watch. Seems that people still don't fully know some of the chants
