Sham 69 Tipped To Top Pop Charts...

So it seems that punk band Sham 69 might be returning to the Top 10 of the British Pop Charts after a lengthy gap of almost 30 years. They are one, of several, bands being tipped to claim one of the top positions in the battle to see who'll become this years biggest selling England World Cup song.

Punks Slate Rivals World Cup Songs (BBC News Online; Thursday 1st June 2006)

I saw a reworking of Infernals 'From Paris To Berlin' earlier this evening that had lots of 'England/Rooney/World Cup' lyrics in both the song and the video (which is pretty much the same video as the original just with added England flags/shirts and plaster casts...). This is also odd as Infernal are a Danish dance act.

I must say that there seem to be WAY more England songs around this year than I recall ever hearing before. I know hopes are high for 2006 but this is a bit silly.

Anyway, 7 days, 18 hours and 58 minutes to go...
