Music Preston have run out to

Hey guys,



I hope this is okay to post here – if not, moderators please move or delete as appropriate.



I’m part of a team at the University of Sheffield, led by Dr Chris

Stride. We've published a number of academic papers and magazine

articles relating to football history, on subjects such as statues and

replica shirts (see, for example sportingstatues.com, and

).



Our current project is investigating the music that football teams have

run or walked out of the tunnel to over the years.



We are looking for the music that Preston North End have run out to, for as

many seasons in the past as you can recall. We are simply interested in

the title of the song, the artist who recorded it, and for which seasons

Preston North End ran out to this. Any help you can give us to

piece together the different songs that your club has run out to would

be hugely appreciated.



If you have any personal anecdotes around the reasons for the songs

being used, or the changes between them, that would also be fantastic.



I should also add that we are not interested in goal music, or a song

that is played at the final whistle, but just the song that is on the

tannoy system as the players enter the field.



If you think someone else may be able to help, or you have any

questions, please let us know! We would be very happy to discuss the

project.



Thanks for your time guys,



Joe Headland

Under Graham Westley (2012/13), we walked out to both:

Greyhound - Swedish House Mafia

And once or twice even ‘Cheer up sleepy Jean’.

What was the theme music we used to come out to in the 90s?

Sounded similar to the apprentice theme music but was definitely different.

Sounded like some sort of satanic ritual theme music and used to start a few minutes before the players were ready to enter the pitch.

Been looking for it for years but can never find it.

I think under Moyes we ran out to Carl Orff's O' Fortuna

In our relegation year, under Phil Brown we came out to The Great Escape theme.

Under Graham Westley I remember on a couple of occasions the players walking out to Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood as well as those mentioned above.

It was a section of Dance of the Knights

Nah it was a different tune. I'm familiar with the full extended version of Dance of the Knights. This was definitely 100% a different theme.

From the mid 90s

The song on that one?

O'Fortuna by Carl Orff I think.

As an aside checking that account, under Craig Brown it appears to be Samba De Janiero
