England is poptastic mate

Back in February I did a couple of posts looking at the 2006 England/World Cup songs:
There was a collection from the showbiz types – and a grouping from your normal punters.

Because of the amount of emails received and the sheer number of contenders out there, I’m going to do this same format plus will be splitting them into two groups. – Starting with some members of joe public who are trying to make a few quid out of this and maybe get a mention on the radio:

A NOTE FOR THOSE OF YOU OUT THERE WITH AN ENGLAND TUNE:

Please don’t spam the comments plugging your own effort. Anybody who does this will be ignored.
– Send a message (and an mp3 of the song) to us via the Contact form.
We’ll give you a mention, even if we don’t like the track. But only if you use the proper channels.
Thank you.
