Colourbox – The Official Colourbox World Cup Theme.

June 1986. John Peel.

When John Peel enthused about a song before playing it that was a cue to press record on your cassette player.

Colurbox, with their own World Cup Theme made one of the best unofficial football songs ever. Scrath that – it’s the best football song ever.

Bouncy. Joyous. The single did not even dent the Charts. That’s Just Crazy. If England had adopted this Linekar and Co may just have heeded to the victorious sound and gone and won the damn thing…
