Released in 1994 by the then Manchester United Football Squad, “Come On You Reds” is sampled on Status Quo’s “Burning Bridges”. It is the only song by a Premier League football club to reach number 1. Other famous football songs to reach the top spot include England/New Order “World In Motion” which featured players from the 1990 World Cup Squad, Badiel, Skinner & The Lightning Seeds “Three Lions” which was released initially in 1996 & has reached the Top 20 on 5 separate occasions in 5 different years & Ant & Dec “We’re On The Ball” which was the official England Football Squad’s song for the World Cup finals in 2002. Today’s choice pays homage to my favourite football club as their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson of 26 years retires today.
