In several games, when it approaches the end, someone starts singing "The Winner Takes it All" or " We are the Chmpions". But some games make people start singing other songs. I've played these games several times, and always someones starts to sing at these points. Where do you/your friends start to sing?

It used to be "I shot the sheriff......" but now I wonder if Lawrence Hung's (American Idol) version of "She Bangs" would get popular with this game.

When someone lays down the Queen of Hearts, we sometimes sing, "Playin' with the Queen of Hearts..."

During this and all the games at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist.php3?action=view&listi... we sing:
- if you are an Allied pilot, "It's a long long way to Tipperary" as Snoopy did as a RFC pilot on the Marne front.
- if you are a German one, "I am zinking in te rrain" (yes, it is not a wartime song neither a German one, but we sing it after a very dedicated singer that we met in a Nurenberg restaurant during the Toy Fair - besides, on the dull French front it always seem to rain, unlike the sunny Piave front down in Italy).

Whenever someone builds a road, we break out into "Building A Road To Nowhere. . . "

We're actually more prone to dramatic spoken recitations rather than sung traditions. Examples:
Sleuth -- any request for "clusters" invokes A John Cleese-style "Cockroach Cluster" from the Monty Python "Crunchy Frog" routine

Acquire -- any purchase of Festival starts a "Festivus for the rest of us" recitation from Seinfeld

Borderlands or any other game involving negotiations and potential threats of attack -- always brings us to Exeter's speech in Henry V: "Or else, what follows?" "Bloody constraint!" etc.

And of course, any time anyone does anything in a group of "Three", they say "Five" and everyone hastily corrects -- "Three, sir!" -- a la Monty Python and the Holy Grail's Holy Hand Grenade scene. Typical example is Acquire, in which stock can't be bought in greater groups than three.

Pink Floyd, yessir. "If it wasn't for the Nips being so good at building ships the yards would still be open on the Clyde", expecially when Japan builds his fleet (from "The Final Cut"). "It was dark all around, there was frost in the ground when the tigers broke free. And no one survived from the Royal Fusiliers Company C." when German tanks attack (not necessarly on the Anzio beachhead - from the movie "The Wall").
