Song for Gus

The hype surrounding Brighton and Hove Albion's FA Cup fourth round game at Aston Villa has seen an utter farce over ticketing, inflatable's and balloons, but perhaps most worryingly it has bought a more alarming matter to the attention of Brighton fans everywhere - Gus Poyet does not have a song.

Albion fans have a proud tradition over innovative songs for their managers - Steve Gritt and later Russell Slade were hailed through the medium of verse for their baldness while Mark McGhee was serenaded with an anthem regarding him drinking pints of whiskey to the tune of 'Let it Be' by The Beatles. Mr Poyet has been at the club for just over three months now and yet - nothing. It is such a pressing matter that it has even made the pages of The Argus.

Having poured through the North Stand Chat thread regarding potential songs for Gus, WeAreBrighton.com have pooled together what we feel are the top efforts and presented them, together with their YouTube originals, alongside a few of our own frankly pretty poor attempts for you to judge and cringe over at your own leisure:

I Wanna Dance With Gus Poyet
Inspired by Whitney Houston's dance floor anthem, this one gained early popularity on North Stand Chat
Lyrics:
I wanna dance with Gus Poyet
I wanna feel the heat with Gus Poyet
Yeah, wanna dance with Gus Poyet
With Gus Poyet who loves me
Gus Poyet wooo-ahhh-ooohhh
A popular terrace chant already, this adaptation of Dean Martin's 'Volare' has instigated much debate over what the final line should actually be
Lyrics:
Gus Poyet wooo-ahhh-ooohhhh
Gus Poyet wooo-ahhh-ooohhhh
He came from Uruguay
He'll make the Seagulls fly

Gus Poyeeet
That annoying Go Compare advert featuring the tenner is given a new lease of life with this beautiful adaptation
Lyrics:
Gus Poyeeet, Gus Poyeeet,
Forget the rest; we’ve got the best with Gus Poyeeet,
With Forster scoring
And Seagulls soaring,
Then you’ll thank your stars that you went with Gus Poyeeet

All You Need Is Gus
Popular during the Doug Loft song craze that swept the terraces last season, this is a simple adaptation of the Beatles anthem All You Need is Love
Lyrics:
All you need is Gus
All you need is Gus
All you need is Gus, Gus
Gus is all you need
Gus Poyet aha aha I like it
KC and the Sunshine Band demonstrated their lyrical genius with this tune. This new take on an old favourite is a simple adjustment to the bulk of the song  with the "That's the way" line being replaced with Gus Poyet
Lyrics:
Gus Poyet aha aha I like it aha aha
Gus Poyet aha aha I like it aha aha 
Gus Poyet aha aha I like it aha aha
Gus Poyet aha aha I like it aha aha
Gus Poyet's Alright For Fighting
Representing the gay capital of Britain, it seems a shame that more Elton songs are not utilised. Saturday Nights Alright For Fighting offers the chance to rectify that, with the final chorus section being craftily substituted with Gus' name
Lyrics:
Gus Poyet, Gus Poyet, Gussss Poyet
Gus Poyet, Gus Poyet, Gussss Poyet 
Gus Poyet, Gus Poyet, Gussss Poyet
He's alright

Which Song for Gus do you think is the best? Or have you got a better effort yourself that should be belted out by the Brighton faithful? Why not share it with us
