Celta Vigo v Deportivo: the Galician derby, where rival fans sing together

From: https://www.theguardian.com/football/copa90/2018/mar/23/celta-vigo-deportivo-coruna-galicia-derby-football-liga

Sometimes it can feel as if the only Spanish fixture the wider world really cares about is el Clásico but, in a land where regional identity is fierce and football is king, there are big derbies scattered throughout the country. With that in mind, we set sail for Spain for the fourth series of Derby Days to uncover cultures, stories and rivalries that make up a side of Spanish football you may not have seen before. First up was Celta Vigo v Deportivo La Coruña: two clubs from port cities in the weather-battered north-west.

These two groups of supporters are united by their Galician heritage and language, but divided by football. When Deportivo and Celta meet the two sets of fans sing the Galician anthem together and then descend back into insults. This rivalry is both fraternal and ferocious. Estrella Galicia sponsor both clubs’ shirts so neither group of fans boycotts their beer.

The cities of Vigo and A Coruña may look similar to the outsider but they both have fierce local pride. As the saying goes: “Mientras Vigo trabaja, Coruña relaja.” (“While Vigo works, Coruña relaxes.”) The former city prides itself on industry and fishing, while the latter enjoys a reputation as a cultural hub of food and fashion. But, above all, both consider themselves as Galician first and foremost – defined by the sea, the rain (320 days a year on average) and a sense of otherness a long way from any Spanish stereotypes.

All of these differences are brought together in the Galician derby, the biannual fight for dominance. Football is an obsession here. As one fan put it to us: “In the music, there’s football. There’s football in the sea. In death, there is also football.” The players understand this obsession too as a lot of them are locals. Celta’s top scorer this season, Iago Aspas, is a Galician boy who grew up at the club and Deportivo’s best chance of a goal, Lucas Pérez, was born in A Coruña. They get that this is a unique derby.

THE RATTLIN' BOG

"The Rattlin’ Bog" is an Irish folk song. It is a cumulative song. Since it is a folk song, it has been transmitted over generations orally and aurally so many versions coexist. During a performance, it is typical for the song to increase in speed with each additional verse, almost as a challenge to determine who can sing the lyrics the fastest without getting mixed up.

Ho, ro, the rattlin’ bog,
The bog down in the valley-o.
Ho, ro, the rattlin’ bog,
The bog down in the valley-o.

Now in that bog there was a ........,
A rare .........and a rattlin’ .........,
And the ..........in the bog,
And the bog down in the valley-o.

Ho, ro, the rattlin’ bog,
The bog down in the valley-o.
Ho, ro, the rattlin’ bog,
The bog down in the valley-o.

Now on that ........there was a ........,
A rare ........and a rattlin’ ..........,
And the ................on the ...........,
And the .............in the bog,
And the bog down in the valley-o.

And so on and on and on.....

UNDER THE SEA - BAIXO O MAR

Sebastian is a red Jamaican crab and major character in Disney’s 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid. He is the "distinguished" court composer for King Triton, and is regularly tasked with watching over his youngest daughter, Princess Ariel.

Sebastian (and a band o fish / sea creatures) sing Under the Sea. The song is a plea by the crab Sebastian imploring Ariel to remain sea-bound, and resist her desire to become a human in order to spend her life with Prince Eric, with whom she has fallen in love. Sebastian warns of the struggles of human life while at the same time expounding the benefits of a care-free life underwater. However, his plea falls on deaf ears, for Ariel leaves before the end of the song.

HERE you have a fill-in-the-gaps activity to be done while watching and listening to the video above.

In addition, we have translated the song into Galician. This is our version in Galician language. First recording HERE.

Karaoke HERE.
