As we polish our boots and brush off the shirts, it’s likely to be the World Cup battle of the summer, no not England vs Italy…Chubby vs Barlow.
Yearning for a new classic World Cup anthem that we can all test our vocal talents on, England fan Robin Ward has come up with a new song, ‘Hopes of a Thousand Men’. Perhaps ringing all so true. Remember ‘World in Motion’, ‘Three Lions’ and ‘Vindaloo?
Robin Ward has recruited cult comedy legend Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown and X-Factor favourites Journey South, Andy and Carl Pemberton to perform the track. Alternative England, as the group are now aptly called, are joined by bass guitarist Stu Fletcher from the legendary, platinum album selling band, The Seahorses. What a creation.
‘Hopes Of A Thousand Men’ is a parody incorporating ”Swords Of A Thousand Men” by Edward Felix Tudorpole published by Warner Chappell Music Ltd.
So who would England fans rather be singing along with this summer, Chubby or Barlow? Time will tell, but in terms of the best sing-a-long anthem…it’s no contest!
Here is a teaser of the song:
