Forest-inspired music: part eighteen

This song will either have you misty-eyed with nostalgia, or trembling with embarrassment at the memories of it being piped out of the PA system at the City Ground as the team took to the field.  Given the ‘retirement’ of Sherwood the Bear, and the introduction of the new Robin Hood based mascot, it becomes all the more topical I suppose!

It called Robin Hood, and it’s by Hector Cortez and his Formation (his formation?!) – and I really really hate it.  I was relieved that the introduction of a Robin Hood themed mascot has not ushered in a reintroduction of this dreadful musical travesty – yet.  We do get the ‘horn’ noise mixed in with our prematch music, which seems to be instead based on the recent BBC Robin Hood series theme tune instead.

I shudder to think of a time when this song may be reintroduced, but I do know a fair few fans would welcome such a development!

  1. Got to disagree with you here, despite the embarrasingly bad musical side of this song it will always be associated with a succesful Nottingham Forest side. I’d swap the kudos of a good tune at the tunnel for a cheesy tune but a good team to go with it.

    Bring back Robin Hood and proper football to the City Ground.

  2. Oh aye, I’d take a decent and successful team if just the ‘coming out’ music was the price to pay!

  3. I’ve a foot in both camps here.

    Reminds me of the goods times…..and those are few and far between these days but I had to grit my teeth whilst it was being played.

    Still play the tune…and lets see the likes of another Shilton, McGovern, Robbo and Woodcock etc etc run out in the tunnel in the Garibaldi…….

    Sigh – if only……..

  4. Ah, Egor, them was the days; City Ground was a fortress back then, and almost 4000 trickies bouncing up and down in the Trent End. Not much different up to the late 80’s actually.

    Am I correct in thinking we are just outside of the relegation places of the English 3rd Division?? No wonder my regular travelling party to nottingham has dwindled to 3!
