Songs that work faster than caffeine
The World Cup football tournament 2022 starts in 6 days,
on 20 November. As usual when England’s national team
participates a supporting anthem is written/recorded.
The goosebumps composition was written by Nigel Carr, editor of music website
Louder Than War. It features members of The Smiths, Suede/Roger Waters band, The Fall, The Membranes and The Blockheads along with the glorious soul voice Melanie Williams and Chorlton High School Choir.

Nigel Carr: “The song is a lament from a football fan, full of hope and roaring ambition,
while recognising the long wait every fan has endured over the years. Come On England
(You Better Believe It) recognises the incredible inspiration provided by the England Women’s football team, where, after ‘the Lions’ line, they are referred to as ‘The Esses’. The powerful chorus is both uplifting and inspirational. ‘Nothing Can Stop Us Now, You Better Believe It – Come On England, a proper terrace chant!”
