Ay Ay Ay Moussa ! A Song For Djenepo !
Tuesday, 17th Sep 2019 09:42
It is about time that the Northam End had a few new songs to sing, how about this one from the 1980's.
Standing in amongst the tremendous away support at Sheffield United it struck me that these days we have very few new songs aside from the usual generic songs sung by every club.
Some clubs seem to have the knack of coming up with songs that define a game or season, usually it's Liverpool or Man Utd who come up with an adaption of a song and make it their own and it is about time we followed their lead and came up with a few classics our selves, preferably ones that aren overtly concerned with our local rivals from down the M27.
The goal by Moussa Djenepo brought a tune into my head that I had not heard for years, Ay Ay Ay Moosey by Modern Romance circa 1981 a big hit at the time.
I though this would make a great song for Moussa Djenepo and it's been stuck in my head ever since,
It has everything a good football song should have, simple lyrics and a chorus that can be adapted easily and is easy to sing.
Perhaps my version needs a little work, but it shows how easy this song is to adapt and give us a original song for a new hero.
Now when I see those stripes
Ay ay ay ay Moussa
But we shouldn't stop here, we need to find more new songs and build atmosphere in St Mary's, some will slag off the Crystal Palace ultra's but they have ramped up the atmosphere at Selhurst Park over the last decade or so and we need to do the same at St Mary's.
Perhaps this song isn't the greatest but it is still better than songs about Pompey fan's on strings.
Anyway who has any other ideas about songs that could be easily adapted to with Saints or our players and can ramp up a bit of atmosphere, post your ideas below and then let's try to send them viral and lead for once instead of following the rest.

Matches of Yesteryear - Swindon v U's 1/9/01 by wessex_exile
I have the first of several Xmas work outings tonight, so I'm posting this a bit earlier.
Matches of Yesteryear - Exeter v U's 27/11/91 by wessex_exile
So, back again after my break for international duties. With our ongoing exploits in two of the three domestic cup competitions, it’s nice that the random match selector has chosen one of our earlier forays into a cup competition – albeit the one competition we’re no longer involved in this season…
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
