XS Manchester Breakfast with Adam Brown 6am - 10am
We all know and love New Order’s World In Motion, Baddiel and Skinner’s Three Lions and even Fat Les’ Vindaloo.
Here’s some of the not-so-great attempts at football anthems by the footballers themselves.
England and Arsenal striker turned TV pundit, Ian Wright, worked with Chris Lowe of the Pet Shop Boys on his breakthrough into the music industry. Wright is yet to follow up the single, which charted at number 43. Check out those dance moves.
Follwing the 1990 World Cup, Gazza teamed up with Lindisfarne on a cover of their 1972 hit. Although Fog On The Tyne reached number 2 in the UK chart, founding member Ray Jackson though it was so poor that decided to leave the band.
Spurs and England team mates Hoddle and Waddle made it to number 12 in the UK charts. The pair worked with Bob Puzey on the song, who had previously worked with the Nolan sisters.
Former player and manager Kevin Keegan released Head Over Heels In Love whilst playing for Hamburger SV in Germany. The track didn’t make it into the top 30 in the UK chart.
