ALBERT Einstein famously once said: “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician.

“I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”

So surely it is only right that music should be experimented with?

That is exactly what Cherries did pre-match last night at Vitality Stadium, as they reverted to an old favourite track to get both themselves and the home supporters going.

Under the lights against Brighton having lost four league games on the bounce – Eddie Howe’s men brought back Kanye West’s massive 2010 track Power to go alongside Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline.

And boy did it hit the right note.

After absorbing pressure for the opening 30 minutes against the Seagulls, the hosts then came to life and recaptured a clinical edge that had been lacking for weeks.

Strikes from Harry Wilson and Callum Wilson either side of Pascal Gross’s own goal provided a huge boost in Cherries’ quest for Premier League survival.

As Kanye says in the song himself: “I guess every superhero needs his theme music.”

Fans were calling for the track to be brought back on social media – but how did it come about?

“We thought we needed a change. To go back to the song Power that we came out to last season,” club captain Simon Francis, who is on music duty in the dressing room along with Adam Smith, told the Daily Echo.

“Just sometimes you have to tweak a few little bits pre-game – anything to give you a little boost - a little advantage into the game and the lads felt good before.

“There was a good vibe definitely in the changing room – we felt that was coming.

“We hadn’t played Sweet Caroline for years and years and then to go to that, I don’t know, it’s not necessarily a motivational song for us. It is a good song.

“Power feels a little bit more natural for us – if it gives another five or 10 per cent to a few of the players – then why not use it?”

Cherries matchday master of ceremonies Mike Botto at half-time admitted the club had gone old school in their approach for what was a crucial relegation scrap against fellow south coast strugglers.

At full-time, the ground was rocking.

Quizzed on the buzz from the home fans, defender Francis added: “That’s as good as they’ve been at home, for sure.

“I know it works both ways for us to score first and get them behind us.

“I know it can be nervy at times when we are trying to do the right thing, playing out, against Watford they showed they were disappointed in us and that’s fair enough as well.

“They have their right, they pay their money to come and see us – they have the right to be disappointed when we are not winning games.

“But, as you saw against Brighton and as they know, when they are behind us it makes the players play better. It might seem a cliché but they have to be our 12th man at home and away.

“They have been so important this season and we need them now more than ever.

“Home form, home games and home crowd is massive for us. It’s going to be for the rest of the season.”

So what happens in the dressing room after a win like that?

“We play a certain song every time we win,” said Francis. “I’ll keep that under wraps! There will be photos taken and they are sometimes put up around the training ground.

“It’s just to remind us of that feeling of winning, so we can try to get back to that, make that as frequent as possible.

“It hasn’t been this season but there’s some great pictures up there from some huge wins.”

Reflecting on his team’s latest big triumph, the skipper added: “It’s funny really because for the past four or five games we didn’t look like scoring, which isn’t like us.

“Then, all of a sudden, I wish I had the answers to why we were like that but suddenly it was almost like – not the old us – but the Bournemouth people have become accustomed to over the years.

“It was much more like us and fully deserved.”
