Huddersfield has inspired many musicians to pick up a guitar, put pen to paper and write a ditty about our town.

From songs backing the Giants and Huddersfield Town to tunes honouring our famous landmarks and even declarations of love, Huddersfield could have its own album of hits.

We've round up ten for you to listen to — take a look at our chart below then vote for your favourite in the poll.

1. Sheriff of Huddersfield - Iron Maiden

Yes, the mighty Maiden wrote a song about little old Huddersfield! Sheriff of Huddersfield was written about the band's manager, Huddersfield-born Rod Smallwoood, who moved to Los Angeles but struggled to adapt to the LA lifestyle.

Best lyrics: "The back of the the rainbow's a long way from heaven, but that's where he gets his pork pie"


2. A Huddersfield Love Song — Cooks and Claridge

A charming ditty using well known Huddersfield places, people and institutions to create a sweet and funny declaration of love. The music video, made by Pictures & Noise, captures real Huddersfield folk filmed across the town centre. Lovely.

Best lyrics: "My love for you is like Castle Hill, towering and true"

3. Huddersfield Town — Roger Davies

Roger Davies' number not about the football club, but the town he loves. The singer-songwriter name checks Huddersfield's beloved locations and institutions in a lilting tribute to his hometown — it's hard not to feel pride when you hear it!

Best lyrics: "Now you see, now matter how far we sail, home to me will always be Kirklees and Calderdale"

4. We Are The Giants — Huddersfield Giants

Video Loading

Brace your ears — after Roger Davies lilting melodies this may come as a shock. This is the Giant's anthem from yesteryear — and it's certainly different! "We're simply the best, because we are the Giants." Indeed.

Best lyrics: "We go fee, fi, fo fum, because we are the Giants"

5. Castle Hill song from film 'A Pennine Town'

Video Loading

Castle Hill inspired another unknown musician to pen this dramatic number about the 'dancing spirit ghosts' of Castle Hill. It was apparently used in a film called A Pennine Town - do you know it? Get in touch if you recognise the song, or remember the film...

Best lyrics: "So if at night this hill fort you may glance, fear not the spirit ghosts that appear to dance"

6. Song for the Climate — University of Huddersfield

Video Loading

Not strictly about Huddersfield, but a great video of Huddersfield people coming together to shout out about an important issue. Song for the Climate was performed at last year's Universitt of Huddersfield Climate Change conference, bringing together the University's Students for Sustainability and Kirklees Environment Partnership.

Best lyrics: "Make it greener, make it cleaner, make it last, make it fast and do it now, now, now!"

7. No Trains to Huddersfield — Hull Soul Collective

Video Loading

A protest song written after Hull City fans from March 2014, when supporters were allegedly told by West Yorkshire Police to travel to Hartshead Moor Services to collect their match tickets and be escorted to the ground by police. The so called 'bubbling' of the match frustrated Hull fans, hence 'No Trains to Huddersfield'. Have a listen.

Best lyrics: "This is West Yorkshire, Hartshead service station, robocops in line, helmet and truncheon, face humiliation when there's no train to Huddersfield"

8. Smile A While — Redstar

Huddersfield Town anthem Smile A While was released by Redstar to raise money for the Huddersfield Town Foundation in 2013. Veterans of the Huddersfield music scene, Redstar bagged a US record deal last August.

Best lyrics: "And often you will hear them say, noone's gonna beat the Town today"

9. Huddersfield — Black Before Red

Video Loading

Written in 2010 but only released last year, this catchy tune is titled 'Huddersfield' but doesn't refer to our town explicitly, but has a great beat, jangling piano and strong vocals to help you forget that little oversight.

Best lyrics: "And neighbours will greet us with open arms and gay old carols"

Video: Wren & Shark Record Collective

10. West Yorkshire Police PSCO's cover 'Let It Go'

Video Loading

PCSO's from across Huddersfield looked to the smash-hit Disney musical Frozen for their 2014 Christmas crime prevention video. Their cover of the tune, titled Ready To Go, reassured the public that the police were working hard to keep communities safe over the festive period.

Best lyrics: "Don't let them in, don't let them see, You've got yourself a new TV, Don't leave the window open wide, To let the thief inside!"
