Popular chants are a relatively under-documented musical resource. If I remember correctly Chumbawamba did something with them on their 101 Songs About Sport
project, and terrace songs are used as the starting point for plenty of Half Man Half Biscuit tracks. Away from sport I've never heard any of the "We're here, we're queer" variants cross over from the streets to the studio. In fact the only protest chant I can think of that did is "Maggie Maggie Maggie! Out out out!", on a great track by The Larks
The chant itself was written by Fiona Apple, and it was turned into music Michael Whalen. The thing is, it's for a protest march that hasn't actually happened yet. It's been created for the upcoming Womens' March in Washington DC on the 21st. While I'm sure it's well intentioned, I'm also sure that there will be a number of people who will get stroppy at the idea of a prescribed chant. The curse of the authentic voice of the streets strikes again. Did you know there are some people who have the idea that true anarchists shouldn't organize themselves at all and that everything should evolve "organically"? And not all of them are antagonistic trolls.
Anyway, I'm sure the women of America will be relieved to know that Tiny Hands
has the Doklands seal of approval. Always glad to sort out these knotty conundra. And if the worst comes to the worst, you can always turn a profit over the next four years investing in email spam. These subject lines will be surefire winners:
