    Icon7 Cricketers Songs

    Hey does anyone know what the cricketers' theme songs are for the CB series?
    I know Johnson's is Firestarter by Prodigy. Any clue about the others?

    Paul Collingwood's is Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out, I think. Pretty sure someone in the England team has Put Your Hands Up For Detroit as theirs, which is just unspeakably dire.

    Not invariably - he also likes Rocket Man from the great Reginald Dwight.

    It depends on what he feels is most appropriate for the situation.

    Sometimes it's mere teams': England have used that Lose Yourself crap from Eminem since Vaughan's ODI captaincy started - Sri Lanka and Bangladesh both used The Boys Are Back In Town in 2006 and 2005 respectively.

    Will think of a few more, probably.

    Might possibly have been where Vaughan got the idea from, then.

    Not in the Strictest Sense Of The World but Jack Russell had the brilliant LOHAG conferred on him in West Indies in both 1990 and 1994 by "Chickie" the Antiguan DJ for his heroic repulsion of the bombardments he faced in early tour-games on both trips.

    And I refute the claim that it's crap.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Chickie's from Antigua.

    Anyway, usually the teams that participate in the VB/CB series have songs for each player when he comes out to bat or when a fresh bowling spell begins. Sort of like an introductory song. For example, every year M.J. Clarke chooses It's my life- Bon Jovi.
    Last year Lee had I believe in a thing called love- The Darkness and in 2005, his song was Seven Nation Army- The White Stripes. Last year Bracken had Pump It- Black Eyed Peas. Afridi had a Bhangra song back in '05.

    The exact same thing has happened for a good while in the NatWest Series in England, too, as I mentioned. And IIRR in South Africa, too.

    There is usually a "six" song in Australia, too. First time I remember that was 2000\01, when it was Absolutely Everybody by Vanessa Amorosi. I remember noting what it was next year, too, but can't remember now...

    I refute any claim that it isn't.

    Shame on me, mind, I usually make a point of not claiming any music is crap, because the truth of the matter is you can say anything's crap in some way or another.

    When most people mean by "crap" "I don't like it".
