This is a beauty. When Richard (Adams) told us, at the beginning of this year, that he had written a song for the forthcoming World Cup we were a little sceptical to say the least. Now the months have passed by and the World Cup is almost upon us and we had forgotten all about this song, when just last week Richard sent us the finished version. We couldn't believe our ears, it's fantastic!
All the ingredients are there; great lyrics, a stirring string section, punchy drums, trademark Adams bassline, emotional commentary and a rousing, singalong chorus. It's a rollicking great tune!
Bringing to mind New Order's classic 'World in Motion' married with the melancholic pop of mid-period Go-Betweens. It's the perfect soundtrack for drowning your sorrows after that quarterfinal exit on penalties.
