Nicked from the Sunderland board. Has to be world in motion for me I think.
I agree, three lions makes my toes curl.
World in motion. Without doubt.
Vindalooooooooooo,Vindalooooooooooo oh we all love Vindalooooooo,where gonna score one more than you ,ENGLAND!!!!!!!
Anything other than that DJ Otzi shitteee! & that Ant n Dec rubbish!
3 lions for me. Gets stuck in my head easily.
.....or "We have a Dream"
As a song world in motion as a chant the fans can buy into 3 lions
If the John Barnes rap was the 2nd verse of three lions, you'd have the perfect song.
Hoddle and Waddle
England's version of Tubbs and Crockett
England's 1982 world cup song
Love them both but reckon World In Motion is better.
If it's Football songs in general Nesun Dorma takes some beating. Opera isn't my thing but that is a tune.
World in Motion ... heady student days of 1990. Classic care free summer
World in Motion. a song not a chant. Synth footie song. Sweet spot.
3 lions for me just captures what is needed as a football song.
World in motion is a better piece of music out of a football context but doesnt get the same football effect for me
I'm not sure Nessun Dorma counts as a football song strictly speaking but it never fails to give me goosebumps
When New Order were doing the video and recording of it and asked the England players along hardly any turned up as they though it was just anonther gimmicky football song.
Were the 6 i believe.
This. It's quintessentially English as well, with the optimism framed in the context of our history of failure. It's not "we're the best, we're going to win" it's "we probably won't win, but **** it, it's good to dream"
Im certain it doesnt just nicked a great piece of music and its still a great piece when used in a different context
My thoughts already summed up by a couple of others. World in Motion is a much better song. Three Lions is just a absolute brilliant chorus perfect for grounds and boozers.
