My favourite all time football song has got to be Strachan released in 1999 by Irish band The Hitchers. The lyrics are fabulous, six minutes of pure brilliance, whatever happened to them?
Here’s an extract from their lyrics:
She waited for the match to start to start a fight up with me.
She said, “what’s that you’re watching?”, “It’s a Programme about art”.
She said, “A Programme about art?”, I said “A programme about art”
and then the greatest midfield artist of them all walked out onto the park.
The crowd were on their feet and they whistled and they cheered
Here’s their video
