Euro 2016 Songs: Wales’ Unofficial Anthem Super Furry Animals’ “BingBong”

11 Jun

Bing-Bong-artworkNot to be outdone by recent tour mates Manic Street Preachers, Welsh psych rockers Super Furry Animals released their own “cosmic” Euro 2016 song ‘BingBong.’ It’s as delightfully bonkers as you’d expect from this band of merry pranksters. Continue reading

Blancos Lend A Hand To Julio Iglesias…

1 Nov

…and hilarity ensues. Mad props to watishista Katie Ann for posting this to Twitter and mygypsyspirit for letting me know because this is pants-wetting hysteria at its best.

Cristiano, Iker, Raul, Figo and other celebs (Pepe Reina, Vicente Del Bosque, Rafa Nadal, Jose Merce, etc.) lip sync a song from Julio’s new album seemingly on Skype with Microsoft Movie Maker graphics. Let’s put it this way, these guys would make really bad drag queens with those lip syncing skillz (well, that’s one reason, also Del Bosque’s mustache). It’s UNBELIEVABLE (and excruciating). And if you thought poor Iker was uncomfortable and awkward in these situations before, well, let’s just say you’re in for a treat. And seriously, how did Sergio not end up in this? Was he too busy to Face Time? I am weeping. This made my Sunday.

Updated: The Musical Stylings Of Raul Albiol & Pepe Reina

18 Jul

Our good friend watishista and Napoli fan extraordinaire Maria Rosaria sent me this clip of Raul Albiol & Pepe Reina onstage with a band. Raul is trying to sing La Bamba, but lordy, is he tone deaf. Bless. I said to Maria Rosaria that I was surprised that Pepe Reina didn’t just grab the mic and have a go because that’s his style. To my delight, she came back with footage of him doing just that.

2015 WWC – Group B: Champions In White

13 Jun

Watishista ForzaSusan found this song supporting the Norwegian Women’s National Team. It’s currently #4 on the charts there. Here’s the video by singer ANEEA which features the Norwegian team. Prepare yourself for lots of wind machines and flags (it’s very “da chiffon”, Katie Ann!)

There’s a great sentiment though “Even if we fall, we’re champions, champions in white.” You should always be proud of your team, no matter what the result. This is Norway’s 7th Women’s World Cup. Having won in 1995, they only made it to the group stage in 2011.  They’re currently second to Germany in Group B. – Lozil

Erm, Arsenal? Please Don’t Quit Your Day Jobs

31 May


Mazel tov to Arsenal for winning the FA Cup again, but oh lordy, this sets the Cringe-O-Meter to overload. That said, Per, Ramsey & Koscielny certainly are game. Bless. (It’s still not as bad as that wretched NYC FC song) Oh and Mesut? One thing I need to say to you… Continue reading
