With Take That’s track ‘Greatest Day’ being dropped two weeks before the World Cup kicks off could Lily Allen’s new song be the potential new front-runner, according to the Daily Express.
Gary Barlow’s official 2014 World Cup song had already been endorsed by the FA and had its very own music video featuring footballing legends like Glenn Hoddle and Gary Lineker. However, Barlow will be disappointed with the tracks dropping after speaking to The Independent he described it as: “A rousing tune that will get the nation behind the team.”
Allen released the track via Twitter when she tweeted: “My ‘unofficial’ #worldcup song BASS LIKE HOME.” Despite the anthem not directly mentioning the tournament itself she does comment on a few famous Englishmen from William Shakespeare to Paul Gascoigne.
The song is a far cry from father Keith Allen’s memorable classic ‘Vinadloo’ which Lilly wrote the lyrics for.
Some would say that Barlow’s track in particular didn’t stand a chance from the start re-releasing an old song despite its popularity. Even though he gave it a good go, crowd favourites like ‘We’re on the Ball’ and ‘Three Lions’ are almost impossible to beat.
