Have you ever conjured up a United-inspired ditty which you’re sure could catch on with the thousands that occupy the Stretford End? Something perhaps about a player, a legend, the manager, the team, the club’s history or even an opposing side. Well, you’re not alone. Reds globally dream of having their chant reverberate around the Theatre of Dreams. Have you ever wanted to have one of your chants immortalised in MUFC folklore, but never been sure how to go about it?
Well maybe now is your chance. Following on from Jonathan Shrager’s 3-part interview with MUFC eminent chant composer/conductor Pete Boyle, here is an opportunity to gain your idea some great exposure amongst fellow supporters.
In Part 2 of the interview Pete elaborated upon the criteria he follows for producing MUFC anthems; essentially a combination of originality, creativity, and catchiness.
Please send your original song entries to firstname.lastname@example.org for Pete Boyle‘s consideration. Entries are to be submitted by no later than Monday 16th December. The best one will feature on Pete’s next studio CD, with the winning entrant being invited to sing-along at the recording.
