The Viral Phenomenon

Yesterday, browsing the discussion boards relating to my football team Derby County, I came across some great ‘spoof`’ lyrics by a fellow fan, to be sung to the tune of an old Pulp hit. I liked it a lot, so in the afternoon, I rushed off a version and posted it on my blog mooremusic, with a link on the message boards. Within 3 hours I’d had around 1,500 views, and I’m on course for the same again today. It’s gone viral, and i can barely keep up with the downloads for the fans!  Today on WordPress, it was the featured Hawt post. I didn’t know until today what a Hawt post was, but now I think it means “very popular”!   Have a listen to the song “Commons people” – the new lyrics tell the tale of how our bitter rivals let the footballer Kris Commons leave their club FOR FREE and how he came to us, flourished and helped beat them TWICE in their own backyard. It is very sweet to be a Derby supporter right now!

  2. That is so rad! And look who you have below you.

    CNN, NFL stuff, celeb gossip, lots of acronyms, weird news, stuff about a korean girl group’s legs.

    Really cool, dude.

  3. Thanks, folks!
    I was stunned, I have to say. And Pugs, regarding categorization – I’d be very tempted to put an article about Korean girl group’s legs very firmly into the “weird news” section..guess it must’ve been what they call in the trade a ‘slow news day”!

  4. I found the blog post about the korean girl group last night and I think it could be considered “celeb gossip.” The comments were more entertaining as they ranged from people who were fans and non-fans and had no idea who the girl group was to what it really means to say someone has “sausage legs.”

    And when some people shouldn’t be wearing certain articles of clothing in certain sizes.

  5. How cool to have “gone viral”! Well deserved. I didn’t quite get the connection with the words (not being appropriately acculturated) but the music and performance in the song were great!

  6. Thanks Susan – it’s a long story to explain the lyrics! but suffice to say, the 2 teams Derby and Forest have a long and historic rivalry, they are 12 miles apart, both teams managed by a legendary manager, Brian Clough, whose name now lends itself to the road that joins the cities. In the present, Forest now have our last-but-one manager, and we have as OUR manager the son of Brian Clough, who was one of Forest’s greatest players! Add to that the fact that Forest bought our ex-striker for nearly 3 million, and we got Kris Commons (the subject of the song) for FREE from them, and his goals helped us beat them TWICE in three weeks, and you have a wonderful (if confusing) recipe!
