Meet Leighton Baines: music blogger

Leighton Baines, you probably think this song is about you

With his Carly Simon-inspired chant (see above) among the pick of current terrace songs, Everton left-back Leighton Baines was already associated with musical excellence.

But to enforce this point, he has now launched his own music blog on his club’s official website.

He promises: “I will be posting regular pieces on my biggest passion outside of football. But where I go with my entries is entirely up to you. There is one rule though – all football talk is banned!

“I would love to hear any recommendations people may have in terms of bands to listen to or tracks you like. I will give feedback on the recommendations – and will be offering my own insights into what I’m listening to every week and what I like. I’ll keep it light-hearted – and I hope it is something you enjoy.”

Fresh from his match-winning exploits at Manchester City yesterday, Baines published his first blog today.

He reveals his favourite artists include Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Arctic Monkeys and Paul Weller.

    Perhaps he’s laying the foundations for a career in the NME or Uncut once his footballing days come to an end.
