    We've been asked to provide some warm up music for a corporate screening of the England v Sweden game next Tuesday (20th) in Shepherds Bush.

    Any suggestions as to what we might play with details of where we might get hold of it? We only need to play for 30 minutes. We have 'Amarillo' (of course) but we were wondering if there were any other arrangements of footballing tunes out there (Three Lions, Vindaloo, etc.

    Any help gratefully received.

    If you speak to Ian Haworth at Faireys they are doing the same job there on Thurs, albeit extended to include an acid set.

    I know he has sorted a lot of these items.

    Should be able to contact him through their website, not sure of address

    The World Cup March - written for 1966... i think it is Eidrich Siebert

    Great Escape theme? Dambusters? Pomp + Circumstance 1 and 4? Spitfire Prelude + Fugue?

    Used for TV football shows: Nessum Dorma? Zadok the Priest? Faures Pavane? - this years BBC theme is Scipio/Thine be the glory i think

    World in motion - perhaps there is an arrangement with a Trom playing the John Barnes Rap! (Wishful thinking!)

    Failing that 'Take me back to dear old Blighty' - from 1914 March.

    I'm pretty sure the reference was to Togo, rather than England's early exit from the World Cup! ;)

    Thanks for all the ideas...certainly a couple of good ones there that we hadn't thought of.

    No, it's a song we were asked if we would like to get involved in with and have some fun, isn't that what bandings about, and also if it does get some air time, isn't that good publicity for UK banding?

    I wish we could have done something like that. Unfortunately our "Red Devils" didn't qualify :mad: Maybe we should get a new nickname for our national team...

    About football songs...
    the most famous football song must be "Ole, Ole, Ole, Ole (we are the champions)". I was once told that it was written by a Belgian composer. Don't know if it has been arranged for brass band (maybe you should check the Bernaerts website ;-) )

    You know I had a feeling this thread would head in this direction sooner or later when I started it! ;)

    Thanks for all the sensible suggestions - I think we've got a decent half hour programme pretty much sorted now.

    Come on England!
