Hearing Hey Jude just before the QPR match sent a tingle down my spine and really sends a message to our team. One consideration - should we turn down the PA system and let the crowd take over? I have heard this elsewhere and it can sound brilliant. Jus a thought

We could make a start by replacing the Paul McCartney live version with the proper recorded Beatles version

Think it was turned up to drown out any noise coming from our visitors.

Don't think so. Hey Jude was sung with great gusto and passion by Bees fans both v the ra ras and Leicester

And on the live coverage in the FA Cup even Gary Lineker looked over his shoulder while talking pre match to see what was going on !!!

Hopefully in time, but we need to get this as a more established start of the game, maybe ready for LR days.

The ER singers need to understand it's not a race, though...

Someone suggested on Twitter that we should all hold our scarves aloft when singing it.

I must admit the sight of everybody leaving their seats to stand with their scarves or arms in the air would certainly pump up the atmosphere, be visually amazing and inspiring.

If we were to do this, it is likely tgat more people will join in, inhibitions will be lost leading to the Braemar and New Road being more vocal during the game

Suggestions?

People need to learn the whole thing first. Im in ER and it's a little embarrassing when the majority don't know the different verses.

I'd love us to belt it out for the whole song 3minutes non stop... Unfortunately that requires people to learn the lyrics lol

I reckon the song is started, by the PA , far too early. by the time the teams emerge it has dwindled to near nothing.
We need a wall of noise just as they emerge, along with the welcoming hand clapping

I asked you for a suggestion to replace Hey Jude, with no answer, and then you ask my question.
You have not really thought this through have you?

What did Hey Jude replace?
I believe it was Arthur Askey's Bee Song. Catchy tune but needs somebody to pen some more appropriate words.

Why not sing 'you'll never walk alone' as well.

The reason it starts before the teams walk out is because it's only at the end of the song is the bit we sing BREEENTFOOOORD, and its timed for when the teams walk out

The geezer with the bunny an' the trilby 'at,
Reckons he's legit, but he ain't all that,
Arthur Askey a little dodgy maybe,
But underneath E's alrite.

"Let in Bee" is probably a better Beatles tune - but I like Hey Jude, would like it more if we used it uniquely.

I think they start the song too early before the players come out. And overall it's too long they Jude goes on and people lose interest after about four Brentford s.

It used to be unique to us.

A Brentford fan played it on a piano in the pub on a Friday night in the days where you left when the pubs cosed to get right up North.

The Bees fans changed the words and it stuck.

Other clubs have only started using it. Im sure Man City for example had no association with song before we beat them 3-1 in the cup but i could be wrong

A pre KO chorus of Hey Jude from a packed Royal Oak is a memory I’ll always cherish!

Im not a fan of hey Jude but that don't make it bad. I try to make a sad song and try to improve it.
For god sake its our song. We don't need anyone to organise it.
Just sing up without someone f ing waving an orchestral baton.
