*not sure if this should be sports or entertainment*

Anyone got the chance to listen to all the world cup songs both offical and unoffical? Do you think all world cup songs are a bit cheesy?

    Three Lions was one of the best songs ever <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">.

    Three Lions 98 wasn't as good but still deserves a mention <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I think the crop on offer this year is awful

    Three lions is the best domestically <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> I happen to think 98 was a better version, a follow up was always going to be difficult, the words are very clever

    Offical anthems down through the years are all brilliant simply because they have so many memroies attached <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Jerusalem last time around, i've played that hundreds of times in the last week alone, the great escape like wise <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Pavarotti in 1990 <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> What a tune <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Oh don't get me started, i'm nearly wetting myself in anticipation as it is <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    They should have done another 3 lions...

    I liked We're on the Ball when they did it on TFI Friday cos me and my mate changed all the names to people we knew and made it rude. But Ant and Dec sing it all wrong, they should have let us do it.

    The Terry Venables one is growing on me, I keep singing it now.

    Hopefully I'll be abroad over the World Cup, that will be better than being here. How are people supposed to watch the matches in the morning? <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> and I thought it was your comments about United which deserved my contempt but you've managed to top that with this <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    As for watching the games. I <STRONG>work</STRONG> for a living unlike you tax dodgers...so I'll miss most - although the 7.30 kick-off means I can just be late that day...

    Unless, of course, the tax payers won't mind NHS Modernisation staff spending work time watching football...perhaps I should arrange team meetings to coincide with the England games...

    I do have my WSC World Cup Wallchart on my office wall...and a radio so that I can [at least] listen to the games.

    Look seriously guys, a lot of my mates really liked SM:TV and thought that Ant and Dec were brilliant, I doubt they think that anymore, see what I mean (I didn't watch it much myself <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> )
    living unlike you tax dodgers
    your cheek knows no bounds <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> , I bet you did a longer degree course than the one I'm doing.....

    Two things struck me when I read this:

    a. You have mates?

    b. A man is judged by the company he keeps - and your 'mates' think Ant & Dec are cool...hmmm.

    <STRONG>
    (I didn't watch it much myself <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> )</STRONG>

    Mmmm. Okay <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> we understand.

    <STRONG>
    I bet you did a longer degree course than the one I'm doing.....</STRONG>

    Nope. Never went to uni, worked my way up (the proper way to do things <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">) and am now studying for my MA in my *coughs* spare *coughs* time.

    And if anyone wants to discuss the thoughts of Peter Drucker, Charles Handy and Weber then I'm the man...

    You're not kidding. I remember collecting Panini stickers for the Argentina '78 World Cup.

    And eb, I know. You are one of the blood suckers, just be careful not to get too much sunlight - and stay away from the garlic <IMG SRC="wink.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
