Whenever opposing teams came onto the field at Ivor Wynne, there was always a theme that team had played when they took the field.
Lions - The Lion sleeps tonight - The Tokens - The Lion Sleeps Tonight - YouTube
Argos - The Love Boat - The Love Boat - YouTube
Riders - It's not easy being Green - The Muppet Show: Kermit - "Bein' Green" - YouTube
Als - Alouette - Alouette, gentille alouette - YouTube
So we now have the RedBlacks back in the league....so how should we introduce them to the first game.
The obvious choice seems to the the Monty Python Lumberjack song - Monty Python- Lumberjack Song FULL - YouTube anyone else's thoughts?
Also, does anyone know the other team's "Entrance" songs.
I always thought they could do better than the "Love Boat" for Toronto. They always like to call themselves "The Good Ship Argonaut," how about Shirley Temple - On The Good Ship Lollipop 1934 Bright Eyes - YouTube
How about '6 Months In A leaky Boat' for the Argos. Seems fitting for them.

Here's a few gems I found to round out the rest of the league,not official of course but I think they might work.I agree 100% on the RB's and Monty Python and I couldn't resist the I'm on a boat ditty for the B.B's even though it happened 6 years ago,it's something I think we can all agree on when we think of Winnipeg and the Bombers and sticking it to them :lol:
They've been using "One Great City" by the Weakerthans to introduce the Blue Bombers the last few years (which includes the lyrics "I hate Winnipeg").

Which is okay as long as you ignore that it's really a song about how much John K. Samson loves Winnipeg.
For some reason, I always though horse with no name was appropriate for the Stamps.
Just going from memory, I believe these are songs the Cats have used to introduce teams.
Montreal - Alouette
Toronto - Love Boat Theme, In The Navy
Winnipeg - I Hate Winnipeg
Saskatchewan - It's Not Easy Being Green
Edmonton - Don't Eat Yellow Snow
Calgary - Don't Let Your Boys Grow Up To Be Cowboys, Horse With No Name
BC - The Lion Sleeps Tonight
When we are in BC they regularly use What's New Pussy Cat for our entrance.
How about Stompin' Tom's "Big Joe Mufferaw" for the RedBlacks?
It wouldn't work,unless you could find a bilingual version of the song,and I don't recall Stompin ever singing in French :roll:
