JAMES contribute a specially re-recorded version of ‘Low Low Low’ to the official World Cup soundtrack album ‘Gloryland’, released through Mercury on May 30.
Retitled ‘Goal Goal Goal’, it is a paean to the delights of the beautiful game.
Also on the album is the official song ‘Gloryland’, a stirring version of ‘Glory Glory Hallelujah’ by Daryl Hall and the Sounds Of Blackness gospel choir. Hall was an obvious choice for the song because he was a source of divine inspiration for footballers’ haircuts throughout the 70s and ’80s.
Less obvious contributors are The Moody Blues, Santana, The Scorpions and Jon Bon Jovi. Old favourites like Tina Turner’s ‘Simply The Best’, Queen’s ‘We Are The Champions’, Kool & The
Gang’s ‘Celebration’ and Gerry & The Pacemakers’ ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ are also included.
