Unlike other clubs we don't have a signature song when we score. Due to the current euphoria in sporting events across the country and sweet Caroline becoming our nation's favourite I thoughts sweet Caroline could easily be our signature song. Changing Caroline for Northampton town is easy on the ear. What do you think. Please discuss.

I always thought "My Perfect Cousin" by The Undertones would be good. We would have to substitute "Kevin" with "Kelvin" obviously. For that extra touch of pertinence we could change “cousin” to “chairman”.

Sweet Caroline will do for me. I have loved that song since Neil Diamond recorded it back in 1969. Most of the songs mentioned on here by various folk, I have never heard of - sign of age I suppose.

One of the songs played at my dads funeral 4 years ago. A favourite of his and my mums. Still wouldn't want it as our signature goal scoring song though. Smacks to much of plagiarism.

Great song but a there must be a song by an artist associated with the town we can use and some of the lyrical genius' can reword it if needed?

That's why we should go for something completely different Cool. Don't know if anyone else uses it but what about something like White Riot by The Clash, that would get 'em going
or something a bit more obscure like Orgone Accumulator by Hawkwind or Afro Left by Leftfield. Something original.

Goal music is one of the worst things about football now,

Nancy Sinatra - These Boots as walk on music

and that's it.

It should be something unique. Sweet Caroline will be half the grounds around the country.
We can’t have had many truly unique football songs over the years.

It's really not hard, they used to have 'These Boots' , then they got rid of it...but the whole point is that you push through and eventually people recognise it as your song and it then becomes a tradition over the years...

People obviously hate the goal music at Fleetwood, and despite what I said about goal music, they have always had it and it becomes instantly recognisable as their song, and has relevence to the town. In some way I admire the owners for it.

Z cars Everton (and watford)
YNWA Liverpool

two clubs that understand tradition.

Sweet Caroline is a bad choice, you'll get half the away fans joining in.

Needs to be something unique to the home team in my opinion.
