Can you feel the fear?

Most of you will probably not know it but the Sharks have a brand new song which appears on the Spoonfeeda’s new album Dance little sister. The track is called “Fear” and is available for free download for a limited time only from the official Sharks website.

For those of you expecting a song which has overt references to the team with every second word being “Sharks” and rattling off of the players names and what they will do to other teams, you will be disappointed. This is not your average corny rugby team song that only really sounds good when you are waiting in the parking lot of the stadium having a braai and a beer while waiting for the game to start.

Download the song for yourself here

Have a listen and let us know what you think of the new song.

  • You can also download the rest of the Spoonfeeda’s new album from there, but you unfortunately have to pay for that.

  • downloaded this morning. Sounds pretty good.
    I also heard that Freddie Nest (Afrikaans singer) did a song for The Sharks. I havent’ heard it, and not sure if it is a rumour…..

  • Average pop song at best.

    The song’s called FEAR but one could be forgiven if, having to guess the title, you got it wrong because you thought it was about long lost love or something.

    You can what you want about the Blue Bulls song, but it has oompf, is catchy and it gets Loftus going. We need a song that does the same, which FEAR isn’t.

    Not even close.

    I liked it very much though thought it lacks a bit of “umphh” as Mara would say to be a motivational song.

  • Yip . have to agree , it is just anoyher average pop jingle! Would really have liked somthing we can claim as our official Shark’s anthem . As much as I hate the tunes , the Bull’s have really got somthing going and WP are definately ahead in the chant department. So us poor sharks are really hard up , no song and no chant ! Why dont the guys get hold of some locals to get us a vibe , Johnny Clegg would surely pull it off!!

    I’ll try to put it nicely. The song is kak.

    What’s with all this hold hands and sing koembaja anyway? Being nice makes for boring blogging. Adds no value.

    “Nice article.”
    “Good job.”
    “I agree.”
    “I didn’t read the article but let me tell you about my ingrown toenail.”

  • Sharks shouldn’t be put out too much. they are cool in their own way. At Loftus they’ve managed to create a vibe with music that is akin to the haka. Can’t be copied. If you try to hard you look foolish. Get rid of the marketing consultants Just play some music or do stuff. If it works it will show and grow.

    PS.
    Dump the flasher girls. It’s lame.

  • @fyndraai (Comment 45) :
    I welcome vigorous debate on real issues. But petty snipes at people on inane topics like grammar etc is NOT debate, and best left for teenage girls. Being bitchy makes for juvenile blogging, and I for one don’t intend to waste my time with it.

    By all means have a go at the topic of the article, but nobody really cares if you think the writer should write it or not. I really hope this is not a newsflash to you, or a crippling blow to your pride.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 40) : The article was about hearing everyone’s opinions on the new Sharks song. Not liking it has nothing to do with supporting or not supporting someone.

    If in my opinion a song is kak I’ll say so. Am I suddenly not a Sharks supporter? Ridiculous notion and not your style TBH.

    This FEAR song is as crap as the Waka Waka shite that Shakira tortured our ears with. I felt embarrassed for Freshlyground that they were associated with it.

    Obviously music is a seriously subjective thing, but there are qualities that make a good supporters’ song and this FEAR song doesn’t have any of them.

    I know it’s been used to death for sports ads and the like, but they should think more in the line of Tubthumping by Chumbawamba.

  • @rhineshark (Comment 48) :
    You got off at the wrong stop on this one.

    My comment on the song is just my take on supporting a group that writes songs about our team. Nobody has to agree with me. :wink:

    My response to fyndraai is about a larger topic.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 47) :

    I have to plead innocence there. My English grammar is far too poor to ever dare criticizing someone else’s.
    Rob’s dictates have confined us to petty matters anyway, we have to make the most of it.
    Sometimes it even works.
    Like last week when my “petty sniping” (I’d like to think of it as a clever provocation :smile: )taught me about a word I’ve never even heard of.

    The learning does not stop either.

    “Therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit, And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, I will be brief: your noble son is mad: Mad call I it; for, to define true madness, What is’t but to be nothing else but mad?”

    One day soon, I might feel confident enough to work a tautology into a sentence on purpose.

  • This is what a Sharks song should sound like. This is a German reggae star and he sang this song for the 2010 soccer world cup, but imagine this adapted a bit and pumping at Kings Park:
