Retro Rovers : The Playlist

Thursday October 14th 2021

The pre-match playlist, aired between 2pm and 2.40 on a regular match day, tends to be a mix of upbeat pop and rock songs, some of which will be better known to most spectators than others. Call it the prerogative of the Matchday Announcer!

This coming Saturday v Arbroath, as part of Retro Rovers Day, it’s a wee bit different. The 12 songs that will be aired were all riding high in the charts when something special happened in our recent history:

February 1987 – the first of Gordon Dalziel’s 202 goals

May 1987 – promotion from the Second Division

April 1993 – winning the First Division title

November 1994 – Winning the Coca Cola Cup v Celtic

May 1995 – Winning the First Division title

August 1995 – First European match

May 2003 – winning the Second Division title

July 2004 : the first of Ian Davidson’s 507 appearances

May 2009 – Winning the Second Division title

March 2010 : Winning at Dens Park to reach the Scottish Cup semi final for the first time in 47 years

April 2014 : Winning the Ramsden’s Cup v Rangers

March 2020 : Winning the SPFL League One title

 

 

 

Here’s an alphabetical list of the singers/bands who will be featured:-

Black Eyed Peas
Florence & The Machine
George Michael & Aretha Franklin
Lady Gaga
Oasis
Outhere Brothers
Pharell Williams
Sheryl Crow
2 Unlimited

Have a listen on Saturday and maybe some fun in trying to match the hit song with the occasion!
