    Port Adelaide have pilfered INXS's 'Never Tear us Apart' as a pre-game song. Richmond have used The White Stripes 'Seven Nation Army' at the start of games. I think it's time the Pies had a song, at least one to use for a season campaign.

    I reckon the Pies should try and get the music rights to Bruce Springsteen's 'Dancing in the Dark'. The lyrics are Collingwood all over.

    don't need the music video, just parts of the audio to overlay over footage of fans, players, the game etc.

    Here. Where are you?
    Not sure I agree Old Spice
    I get up in the evening, and I ain't got nothing to say
    I come home in the morning, I go to bed feeling the same way
    I ain't nothing but tired, man I'm just tired and bored with myself
    Hey there baby, I could use just a little help
    [Chorus:]
    You can't start a fire, you can't start a fire without a spark
    This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark

    Message just keep getting clearer, radio's on and I'm moving round my place
    I check my look in the mirror wanna change my clothes my hair my face
    Man I ain't getting nowhere I'm just livin in a dump like this
    There's something happening somewhere baby I just know that there is

    [Chorus:]

    You sit around getting older there's a joke here somewhere and it's on me
    I'll shake this world off my shoulders come on baby the laughs on me
    Stay on the streets of this town and they'll be carving you up alright
    They say you got to stay hungry hey baby I'm just about starving tonight
    I'm dying for some action I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write
    This book
    I need a love reaction come on baby give me just one look

    [Chorus:]
    You can't start a fire, sittin' 'round cryin' over a broken heart
    This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark

    You can't start a fire, worryin' about your little world falling apart
    This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark

    Even if we're just dancing in the dark
    Even if we're just dancing in the dark
    Even if we're just dancing in the dark

    Hey baby!

    Until proven otherwise I think we should play the Benny Hill theme every time they run onto the ground. No way they deserve a pump up song after 5 years of no finals.

    We're going on a heroes journey which doesn't start with victory and have it all the way through, but with loss and difficulty. It's all about the struggle and the spark, giving it a go and putting our balls on the line even if we can't know the result. Dancing in the dark.

    First verse

    I get up in the evening, and I ain't got nothing to say
    I come home in the morning, I go to bed feeling the same way
    I ain't nothing but tired, man I'm just tired and bored with myself
    Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

    Starts with players coming off the ground after a loss.
    Going to training in the morning disappointed
    Some close ups of dejected player faces
    Some diehard fans at training patting players as they pass

    etc. Culminating in Pies winning games toward the end and the fan engagement.

    Chorus
    You can't start a fire, sittin' 'round cryin' over a broken heart
    This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark

    That's exactly why they need it. Do a Maxy circa 2009 and put your nuts on the line and say we're here and we want it.

    4 years of no finals :p

    But imagine Benny Hill and what Caro would do with that ?

    Almost, almost worth it

    I've had this song in my head for a longtime as a great song to play pre game.

    Born to be alive.

    Change alive to pie.

    Thunderstruck?

    Would that work?

    Or back in black?

    Something pumping and easy enough to sing along too.

    If we had our own ground “welcome to the jungle” would be apt. Maybe for the VFL team?
    Thunderstruck should be for the Power. They missed a trick there.

    Power by Kanye West. They played this at our games in 2011, let's bring back some of the energy from that year.

    When I use to play sport I would always listen to Eminem Lose Yourself. As you only have one shot and you have to take it

    Maybe, but tell me that you don’t associate Lionel Richie with Collingwood since 2010!
    Also having been to a Liverpool game (I’m an arsenal supporter) there is something awe inspiring and spine tingling listening to their supporters sing you will never walk alone before the game.

    Dancing on the ceiling takes me back to the glorious day in October 2010! Every time.
