Not Another Football Song

A postscript to all the happenings that happened in the last three weeks – Here’s another one I wish I found earlier but am glad I discovered them anyway.

It’s another Swiss band who sing in English (the other previously mentioned here) and after listening to a few of their songs I am publicly stating here and now:

linus.maybe – I am a fan. A very big fan.

Their music is catchy and instantly memorable, I’m surprised that they haven’t caught on everywhere yet. They need to be.

I realise that not everybody in enamored with football and music and as we know on the occasion that one of the home nations actually do qualify for some finals… there is the inevitable avalanche of songs that follow.

Linus Maybe also recognised this when they recorded the following…

…which from the Google translation of their news page tells me that a local Basel radio station was looking for their own song for Euro 2008 and the listeners voted this as their favourite.

I have to tell you I love this track. Love it, love it. This has now become the official F&M song.

Bonus track: They have a music page in which you can hear some of their tracks, plus you can download a couple of them.

– This is another particular standout track which has a tongue in cheek reference to Oasis and the whole rock star thing:
