Bend It ! 91

A strange compilation from the 90's -full of odd football inspired songs and audio snippets. I think also the Exotica label produced several of these over the years and also dabbled in Beatles covers. There is a list of artists who appear on the CD which includes Brian Glover, Geoffrey Boycott, Michael Palin, Sophia Loren, Bruce Forsyth and Michael Caine. I must admit I listened through it a couple of times but never heard any of them!

Exotica Records also plans compilations of the worst songs ever and another about Manchester United.

Peter Osgood & Chelsea 70 - Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep

MSV Duisburg - Zebra Twist

Gracie Fields - Pass Shoot Goal

Unknown - Football Calypso 1953

These SendSpace files are available for seven days or until exhausted.

The best ever football song - bar none - is by an Irish band called The Hitchers - the song itself is titled 'Strachan' and is well worth the effort of tracking down.

In fact it's no effort at all since I've done it for you.

I'd like to request the football calypso of '53 again - the link is down. It was also known as "Football football" and is performed by Edmundo Ross.
