World Cup Songs: #4 Hat Trick of Lions by Jeff Christie v Movistar feat. Aggi Dukes
More World Cup tuneage
Jeff Christie hit the top of the UK charts in June 1970 with his imaginatively-named band Christie. Their song Yellow River knocked classic World Cup anthem Back Home off number one spot. It has now been reworked with England-themed lyrics and retitled Hat Trick of Lions.
It provides an unexpected little slice of World Cup ska pop. But how would it fare in another head-to-head with Back Home?
