Monday Mix-Tape – 11.06.2012

Yes, it’s that time of week again. Time to warm up your Ipod or other branded mp3 player for the latest offering of musical delights. With the European Championships underway in Poland and Ukraine, unsurprisingly, I’ve gone for a football theme…

1) World In Motion – New Order
England’s song performed with one of Manchester’s finest and written by cheeky Keith Allen!

2) Vindaloo – Fat Les

Unofficial footy song for the 1998 World Cup, featuring Keith Allen (again) and his celeb mates!

3) Three Lions – Baddiel, Skinner and The Lightning Seeds

From when Football came home in 1996!

4) Anfield Rap – Liverpool FC

My first experience of that now long-dead tradition of the ‘Cup Final Song’!

5) Ossie’s Dream – Chas & Dave

A cockney knees-up for Spurs in 1981!

6) Back Home – England’s 1970 Squad

England players form a slightly wooden choir!

7) Fields of Anfield Road – John Power

Famous Liverpool song found during my recent Cast revival!

8) You’ll Never Walk Alone – Gerry & The Pacemakers

Chirpy Merseybeat band release song that got adopted as a world-renowned anthem!

9) Catch Us If You Can – Dave Clark Five

More sixties pop used as a run-out by Shrewsbury Town FC!

10) Nessun Dorma – Pavarotti

Slice of opera used as BBC theme for Italia ’90!

There you are my faithful followers and readers. Go get them!!
