World Cup Songs: #5 Three Lions 2010 by The Squad (featuring Robbie Williams and Russell Brand)
More World Cup tuneage
Oh hello. What have we here? Three Lions is back. We are 14 years down the line from the original and 12 years have passed since the last remake. In that time 30 years of hurt have become “all those years of hurt”. Also new on the scene are some operatic vocals, and singing from Russell Brand and Robbie Williams.
Frank Skinner and David Baddiel’s vocals survive the cut although their roles have been chopped back to make room for the new boys. Does it add anything you couldn’t get from the original? Probably not. Does it still make your hairs stand up thinking back to 1996? Of course.
