Arctic Monkeys: Singing For England?
Joe Cole says hed love the Sheffield outfit to record Englands World Cup anthem...
Joe Cole has sung Arctic Monkeys praises and inadvertently kicked off a campaign to have them record Englands official World Cup anthem.
Speaking in an interview with MTV.co.uk at the launch of UMBROs new England away kit in Manchester earlier today, the England and Chelsea ace raved about the Arctics and Richard Ashcroft, his two favourites. Im listening to Richard Ashcroft and Arctic Monkeys at the moment, said Cole.
I think Arctic Monkeys are a fantastic new band. Im playing in my car.
So theyre in your car Joe, but hows about having the Arctics recording this summers England song for their World Cup campaign? Wow, said the attacking midfielder, I dont know, maybe! You never know. Im sure whoever does it will do a great job.
Now while we recognise that this isnt strictly a wholehearted plea by Joe Cole; its enough to get a campaign going. Come on Monkey boys - do it; do it!
