Needs someone to record it properly the way we sing it and play it just before kick off surely.
This was best effort from our fans for ages singing our song under such tragic circumstances

We've somehow lost the tune and just do the words. The young 'uns don't get it.

Defo needs to be over the PA so they can sing along to get the hang of it. Most other clubs play their anthems this way (even Liverpool).

Sometimes the obvious gets overlooked and as you say Posset plenty of others play their song over the tannoy.
Just need someone to record it at the pace we sing it not that awful Jersey Budd version Hopefully the rumours of the clappers going are true then maybe our song will get sung more often

Maybe they wouldn’t rush it if it’s played properly on the tannoy it’s our song so it should be played

The YouTube clip from Cardiff is ok in terms of numbers singing... but sounds like the majority have no idea of the tune. As you rightly say, needs Re-recording at the right speed and to educate folks re the melody.

NLB. The Doris version is no good, nor is Max. They are no faster than Jersey's version.

It needs to be faster than that to have any guts or flow.

Snooty, I reckon you are on a wind up, but I will still bite.
How old are you?
You have got to be kidding if you think any more than 2 or 3 people in a footie crowd could follow that version, especially as most blokes have had a couple of pints beforehand.
WYS is supposed to be an ANTHEM sung SLOW with the appropriate finger pointing and slow/ quick jazz hands at the correct moments ( who remembers the correct sequence?)
In the late 60’s early 70’s, it was a great sight to see 4 or 5,000 Leicester fans doing the actions in unison at confused away fans, who had no come back to it. It was and is, unique to us. It was ruined in the 80’s by the ‘disco’ version with clapping in between, which has never caught on. IMO because it’s too fast and doesn’t have enough time to ‘travel’ through the crowd.

make you bleeding minds up, Jersey's too slow...Louis too fast.
Like the OP said..a new version needs to be recorded, although at this rate it ain't gonna please everybody.
Weren't it the old gal on piano at a pub in town that started it.... well have to bring her back from the dead.

In the OP ‘ wys needs to be recorded the way we sing it...’

Well, what I’m saying is, the way we sing it now is sh-te!
The sequence on the vid is about the best effort I’ve heard in 25 years, and it’s rubbish! Most of ‘em don’t know the words, it’s a shambles. I’ve rarely heard more than 50 or so attempt it, and it soon fizzles out.
Singing- doesn’t really happen much anymore in the kop these days.
No doubt that’s why we need a chimp on a drum in SK1 to constantly beat out a rhythm no one can sing a song to to ‘ improve the atmosphere’.

NLB Doris's version is ok but not quiet right and have to agree with snooty that there is no version out there like we used to sing it. Your quiet right Isimba about it being rushed now and this would need addressing if it was recorded and done how we used to sing it.
This would really boost the crowd from kick off and it might just get sung properly

Didn’t mickey organise some singers a couple of years back to record a cd? I might be imagining it, but wouldn’t it be on there?

No NLB as much as I like Frank there is no version out there like we used to sing it, maybe Kasabian could do it.

Could not agree more, the way we sing it now is rubbish, it's our song borrowed by others who sing it wrong and we have copied them for god's sake.
The kop must take some sort of lead here, show them how it show be sung, the rest will follow

All I ever see is ‘we need to record it again’ or ‘these youngsters sing it too fast’.

Well go record it again. Do it exactly at the speed you want. Take some responsibility for not passing it onto the next generation at the ‘right’ speed.
Bar that grainy video on youtube from a back room years ago I never ever heard WYS sang slowly.
