    3 Lions or World in Motion?

    I have been weighing this up all day and I really cannot decide which is better. They are both really great in a guilty pleasure sort of way.

    Also, GIMH is banned from making John Barnes related posts in this thread.

    Vindaloo?

    But World in Motion of the two.

    Vindaloo very overrated imo.

    I always used to say World in Motion, but a lot of the memes etc. I have seen have really made me soften towards Three Lions over the last few days.

    For example:

    I like that.

    And I'd vote for 3 Lions anyway. The crowd singing it at Wembley in 1996 was genuinely spine tingling stuff.



    EDIT
    Why no mention of 'Back home'?
    Twas the first 45 I bought with my own pocket money.

    3 Lions is miles better. There's a reason it's the only one of the two that ever gets sung on a terrace. World in Motion is a mediocre early-90s dance track that happens to be tangentially related to football.

    Huge fan, me. Love the way it both gently ironises and celebrates some of Albion's mundane peculiarities.

    & "We're gonna score one more than you . . England!" is a pretty great chant too.

    Three Lions is iconic and has the virtue of being made by an actual band, which helps.

    It's genuinely brilliant, there's no guilty pleasure or irony about it imo

    The Fools & Horses clip isn't bad. Also Putin playing it on his piano.

    Bit harsh on New Order

    But yeah itís Three Lions. The adaptability of footballs coming home is great too. Great times singing Tranmeres going up to that tune in May.

    Actually about to listen to all the songs mentioned in this thread in a little playlist Iíve made for my half hour drive just now

    I'd forgotten that one until reading David Squires' latest offering.
    After commenting that Mbappe wasn't even born when France won it in 1998, he cuts to a picture of the emergent superstar pondering 'Qu'est que c'est vindaloo?'
