Gal Costa made one in 1986!
"'70 In Them"
plus there's this
fairly depressing that Brazil wins again really
this jorge ben song is pretty cool also
what are these songs in english?
Roma fans had this song when they signed Renato, who turned out to be a typical Brazilian playboy
"Renato, Renato, Renato,
la cocaina te sei pippato..."
i like how they didn't even give him a season to settle in or anything
its never seems as embarrasing as english songs like this but i guess it could be if youre from there
the gal costa one the lyrics are kinda hard to make out in bits on that video but it seems like what youd expect a world cup song to be
in the peoples hearts a burning passion
he dribbles he shoots he scores
the video montage is kinda mirroring the lyrics i guess
not really sure about that akira s thing tbh
its a bit more of an actual good song than say the gal costa one
i suppose the Gal Costa one comes across quite well considering the alternatives in 1986
i think this is the worst thing i've ever heard
i think chris wilson is my fav in that team
im enjoying reading about football in canada now
its good to know vancouver whitecaps still exist

Done for Euro '96.
"In every hick town in caledonia Across this pseudo nation You can see the most fucked up scum That was shat into creation Where a blue mckewan's lager top equals No imagination You're hunbelievable You're hunbelievable What do they do with all the confiscated bevy, The polis? Buckets and bags of it? Give it to the jakies? nah. Drink it themselves? mibbe. Give it back to the retailers So they can sell it all back to us over again The cunts (echo) You're hunbelievable You're hunbelievable The mystery of scottish sport Is why we hate the english so. I love the english very much As long as they don't fuckin beat us In the european nations cup You're hunbelievable You're hunbelievable Sitting outside wembley in `79, Jock punks in london, massive carry out Talking to a guy in an ice cream van So drunk for weeks and we're goin Way past the point of wantin tickets. It would be horrendous now if someone Was to hand you a fuckin ticket You'd have to leave all the bevy Outside the grounds by the polis dump bins No fuckin way! Ten minutes into the fuckin game We'd be climbing up the walls to get out. Fuc-kin hell. Remember the banner "alcoholism beats communism", Well it beats the fuck out of football as well. Think you're a success Your psyche's a mess Your economy is in distress Sittin and waiting for the inevitable shot out That never comes Sittin and waiting for the inevitable shot out That never fuckin comes."
Also mebbes worth a mention: Black Grape - England's Irie
That record has never been fully appreciated
"I come from a land of class hypocrisy
We're gonna win the National Lottery
EE-I-Addio I don't think so"
From a cheesey musical POV I also quite liked Carnaval De Paris by Dario G for including instrumental representations of all 32 competing nations. As I recall, the Scots (that's how long ago it was) got bagpipes while the English got spoons.
I like it a lot.
