The Beautiful Game....

For all football fans:

I received this from my friend Billy Franks...he is a great singer/songwriter from London. I thought I would share it with you. Feel free to leave feedback and I will pass it on to him.

"It has struck me that every time the nation qualifies for a major tournament, though the quality of the football gets better, the quality of songs connected with the side remains the same. Predictable chants of tired old themes. 

Though other countries often fair no better, Italy, in 1990, made a memorable exception with Nessun Dorma and proved that lovers of the game, at all levels, would welcome something a little more tasteful than the usual gruel. 

In writing ‘The Beautiful Game, I have tried to articulate not only the beauty of the world’s favourite competition but also the yearning of it’s most ardent admirers.

How many of them can I get this to during this World Cup?  Worldwide! With your help, who knows?  Let’s give it a go. 

Send the link below to everyone in your mailbox and tell them to do the same, and so on.
