    Hey guys,


    I hope this is okay to post here – if not, moderators please move or delete as appropriate.


    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/10.1080/17460263.2019.1578255).


    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 Bradford City 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

    Bradford City 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.


    Thanks for your time guys,


    Joe Headland

    Didn’t we come out to “the only way is up” in the promotion season to Prem?

    And wasn't it 'Down Down, Deeper And Down' in the year we got relegated?

    I thought it was the sound of tumbleweed mixed with the ambient sound of car windows being smashed and alarms going off in the distance. MC Charlie swearing profusely over the top.

    It was the A Team theme tune in the PL promotion season.

    I sit in the upper top. What's all this about team coming out to music?

    Wouldn't university students be better off solving global warming or finding a coronavirus cure. Compiling a football top ten is dumbing down in the extreme.

    The A-Team. Used in the promotion season to the Premier League and for our brief stint as a Premier League club.

    Do you know what a great number is especially after perhaps an hectic finish to a match " Theme from Harry's game" by Clannad, just brings you down gently....

    Hi Ho Silver Bloody Lining, talk about original, a great song back in the 60s but as the years go by it's become tedious as most fans just adapt it to their particular club.
    I'd love "Play the Game" by Motorhead full volume as the teams come out, but it looks like we'll have to live with Jeff Becks rendition of Hi Ho Sliver Bloody Lining :(.

    Agreed it’s awful and unimaginative, made worse by saying super city instead of Bradford City. We’re one of the lowest teams named city in the FL, super we aren’t. I wasn’t a big fan of Take me home, well our rendition anyway, but at least it was unique to us. I’d make a more upbeat version of that, similar to Man City’s blue moon.

    It was this stupid Ice Bears song.

    What the hell was that all about?! Why were we walking out to some German Ice Hockey tune?!

    The original version of Take Me Home would be far better than this dreary cover song that we have now. We could just sing over the chorus and listen to a good song for the rest.

    I like the sentiment of the Bradford version we have now, but my god is it dull and depressing. Sucks all hope of an entertaining game right out of me.

    It'd be more suited to the final game Bradford City ever plays again. Funeral song.
