Many of the songs posted here in the last couple of months have been courtesy of and a big thanks to Stu Davis who had the foresight all those years ago to purchase some CD’s and thusly helped me towards my quest to gather everything to do with the musical aspect of the beautiful game… It is a side that many of us wish didn’t exist but it does and this is why F&M is here to remind these people of these past deeds.

There is one individual in this football and music jungle who’s name, as it does with the back page headlines, keeps reappearing. [In fact he’s been featured on here so many times that he’s got his own tag.]

This person was recently in the news again when he piled even more misery on the owner of a certain club in the north east when this well known ex-messiah won a compensation claim to the tune of 2 Million – plus costs.

The above image changed to protect the obvious.

He seemed to have started a trend here because Curbs has just won a similar case against West Ham – another ailing club. – And these two big reasons why Hicks and Gillett will not even entertain the thought in regards to Rafa.

Back to the subject in hand though and again thanks to Stuart for another addition to the collection of KK tunes. This one was his debut single from 1973 and has some… interesting lyrics.

One part of it looks like a threat:

“Show me a happy face each morning
Just be the same when I come home
‘Cos I may leave you without warning…”

Whilst another, after that award for compensation, is very prophetic:

“Cheering crowds and far off places
Lots of money in my hand…”

Believe me/it ain’t easy
To live this life with me
Believe me it ain’t easy
To live this life with me

Show me a happy face each morning
Just be the same when I come home
‘Cos I may leave you without warning
And they’ll be many times you’ll find you’re on your own

Believe me/it ain’t easy
To live this life with me
Believe me it ain’t easy
To live this life with me

Cheering crowds and far off places
Lots of money in my hand
But I come home too tired for lovin’
Something a girl would find hard to understand

Believe me/it ain’t easy
To live this life with me
Believe me it ain’t easy
To live this life with me

Sadly only a snippet and not the full song:

KK - It Aint Easy » K*vin Keeg*n – It Ain’t Easy

Ah what the heck, might as well repost the rest:

» KK – Head Over Heels In Love

» Kvn Kgn – Move On Down

» Keggie Keegle – In England

My quest for everything KK still isn’t over. Still have to find Do I Know You (the B Side to It Ain’t Easy) and Somebody Needs (the B side to In England) – as well as a telly appearance when the curly mopped one sang with Little and Large. » If you know of the location of any of these – drop me a line.

"Come here, there's more"

Some visual and additional musical treats for you.
I’ve gathered together and created a playlist of YouTube clips featuring himself:

– (The only information I have on the next vid clip) : This was made by a group called G15 around the time of Euro 2000 when Kevin Keegan was England manager:

» G15 – Self Preservation Society (Kgn Mix)

I think that’s enough for now.

    Ahhh… The classic rant!
