England Versus…

Singing England fans

Baddiel Skinner Broudie

OK I forgot. Darren Stuart sent this to me months & months ago and I said that I would feature it in the run up to the World Cup. I then promptly forgot. I should’ve wrote something down, I think I did. But I probably threw the bit of paper away.

I have to bake a big apology cake for Darren and thank him for his patience. Ever since sending the following he’s been leaving the occasional comment and dropping subtle hints at the same time, but for some reason it didn’t register. I did actually think that I had already posted it. It is apparent now that I did no such thing.

So just in time… Just before they kick off tomorrow (or maybe today by the time you get to read this) a remixed version of yes, that song…

I don’t know why Broudie or Baddiel or the other one got out their little black book to call their showbiz friend and re-record the song when they could have just issued this remix:

    Dizzee Rascal and “Gavin & Stacey” star James Corden have turned my least favorite Tears for Fears hit into a chart-topping England anthem?
