Let's be honest here for one minute: the World Cup is boring unless you're a fan of Colombia (oh ayeeee?). To restore your faith in the greatest sport of all time, here are some clips about football; step overs, sweaty hands and beers.
Echo Pressure - 1998
Let's start with a brand new clip from our boy Echo Pressure. It's about the 1998 WC, which was great because France won. France had the best players and Lilian Thuram. And when you have Lilian Thuram, it's like having N'Golo Kanté - you can't lose, can you?
Philippe Katerine - Rouge et Noir
The funniest French singer of all time made this song to get free tickets for the semi-final of a game of his hometown team. He got the free tickets, but he did have to work a shift in a burger van!
Ant & Dec - We're On The Ball
A classic, right? Not played on the radio during drive time anymore (sorry Ant).
Fettes Brot - Fussball Ist Immer Noch Wichtig
Aye, they got knocked out early on but nothing brings a tear to the eye more than this unofficial German world cup anthem! Eins, twei, drei, fucking hell Thomas Mueller what happened you div?!!
New Order - World In Motion
Manchester, football and music: New Order. That's it. If you're at the Indie disco this week give it your best John Barnes, okay?
Del Amitri - Don't Come Home Too Soon
Love a PESSIMISTIC Scot during the world cup. Well, at least back in the day they used to qualify, now Amitri's song would be called "Don't Come Home"
The Lightning Seeds - Three Lions '98
Another classic, it's obvious, but it doesn't get old, does it? I wonder which bright spark put the word 'Kunst' on the back of the German shirt? Arty.
Trust Fund - Football
A bit of indie in this list. Though Trust Fund doesn't like Third Outing, we like his clip and here it is. We've forgotten why they hate us, can you remember? We're sorry Trust Fund, honest. Blahhhhh!
Equipe de Foot - Faking Poetry
Another French band from Bordeaux. Their name: Équipe de Foot (no need for translation here), it means 'Red Wine'.
And for the last one. Our favourites for the tournament...
