I've never really understood why people go nuts over New Order's 'World in Motion'. Sure, it's better than your run of the mill football song, but it'd be interesting to see how many people would've gone nuts over it if England hadn't reached the semi-finals of Italia '90. It just sounds a bit bland, to me. Much like the current England team, you might say.
Now this is a football song.
Mark E Smith has previous when it comes to ace footy-related songs, of course. You might rememeber 'Kicker Conspiracy' and, more recently, 'Theme From Sparta FC'. Somehow, though, I can't imagine Stevie, Lamps, Wavy, Davey, Dozy, Beaky and Fabby listening to this during their pre-match team talk. Shame.
