Sing A Song For England

Deborah Hobson

British pop group Embrace have revealed the name and lyrics of the official England World Cup song. The band came to prominence in the late 1990s cultivating a loyal fan base with their flare for big, catchy anthemic music. The ditty, entitled 'World At Your Feet', will be released on June 5th. The Football Association commissioned Embrace to record the tune. Eager supporters  will be hoping that the lyrics which include: “You’re the first in my life/ To make me think/ That we might just go all the way/ And I, want you to know we’re all hanging on” will motivate the England team to victory in the tournament this summer.

World Cup success has eluded England since their historical win against West Germany at Wembley  in 1966. I’m sure everyone wishes the 2006 England squad the best of British luck.  But if they are unable to break the 40 year spell of World Cup misfortune, here are few song titles which might prove more suitable: 'My Way'  (Frank Sinatra), 'Didn’t We Almost Have It All'  (Witney Houston), 'The Winner Takes It All' (Abba),
'I Predict A Riot' ( Kaiser Chiefs). What other suggestions do The-Latest.Comers have?

Dutch Bate German Fans

On the theme of football anthems, a band in Holland have released a World Cup song in German rather than their native Dutch. For those with some detailed  knowledge of the game, it is apparently a throwback to 1998 and a clash between footballers Marco van Basten and Jurgen Klinsman. Band member Dmitry Beugelink said: “We recorded it in German so the wankers can also listen to it. The song is quite catchy.  You can download the song, 'L opend Vuur' at www.lopend-vuur.com.

<p>&nbsp;&ldquo;Tears Of A Clown&rdquo;-(Smokey Robinson and The Miracles) is my song title choice as there will be plenty of&nbsp; wailing when &lsquo;England&rsquo;s finest&rsquo; return from Germany with a bag full of excuses and no World Cup. Now don&rsquo;t get me wrong, I&rsquo;m as patriotic as the next person- I get bleary eyed at the sight of the Union Jack and our dear old Queen, but no one should be expecting much from a squad full of pampered, shampooed rich boys. If members of the team can stop themselves from cavorting with the hired help(nannies watch out), or doing a Greta Garbo &lsquo;I want to be alone&rsquo; because they&rsquo;ve had a knock back from a bit of skirt then England might be in contention.Oh the beautiful game!

<p>&nbsp;<strong>By David&nbsp; O </strong><br /></p><p>With the World Cup fast approaching the tension is mounting and songwriters across the country have been penning their best in their droves to help encourage England to win the World Cup once again. Along with Embrace's composition World at your feet there are several other songs which England fans will be chanting from the stands in Germany. One of these will be THE HIGHEST HIGH by Adam Bostock. It's been described as the most rousing football song since 3 lions.&Acirc;&nbsp; Sounding <br />like Robbie Williams backed by the Doors it is a passionate, powerful melodious song which is hotly tipped to ride high in the UK charts this summer alongside Embrace. <br /><br />The Highest High is Officially released on June 5th and is released through Matchbox Recordings. <br /><br />For more info please visit www.thehighestigh.co.uk <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /> </p><table border="0"> <tr> <td width="1">&nbsp;</td> <td width="5"><br /></td> <td><br /></td></tr></table>
