Top 5 – Beatles songs in the English football

5 anos atrás ----- Read All In English

What does the biggest band of all times have to do with football in Britain? Everything! One doesn’t know for sure how much into football were Paul, John, Ringo and George – they’ve always been very discreet on that matter – but the influence that the Fab Four still has upon British footie fans, oh that’s very evident.

To prove so, we’ve selected five of the best chants intoned by the crowds at British stadiums. It’s out of this world! Just press play:

Top5Coventry City’s “Twist and Shout”


.
On January this year, Coventry City, a small English club, hit the sports headlines around the world. During the halftime of a game against almighty Arsenal F.C, the fans who were on the queue to get beer and food belted out with one voice the classic “Twist and Shout”. This brilliant flashmob didn’t restrain the club from losing 4-0, but it was an unforgettable moment at the Emirates Stadium.

Top4 Manchester City’s “Hey Jude”

Manchester City fans (Oasis’ Gallagher brothers included) sing Beatles beautifully as well. That video above shows them chanting “Hey Jude” after winning the local derby against Manchester United. “Jude” is often replaced by “City” at Etihad Stadium.

“Hey Jude” again. Supporters use all sorts of songs to praise their favourite players and “Hey Jude” is one of the most popular tunes for that purpose. Arsenal forward Oliver Giroud, for instance, was blessed with his very own version of “Hey Jude” (“Giroud” almost rhymes with “Jude”).

Top2Liverpool’s “Yello Submarine”

Jamie Carragher has played for Liverpool his entire career. In 2013, after 15 years of devoted services, he hung up the boots, but his name was immortalised by the scousers in this moving version of “Yellow Submarine”.

Top3 Liverpool’s “She Loves You” (1964)
.

.
Liverpool is The Beatles home town, so it makes perfect sense to have the supporters of the biggest team in the city as the pioneers of the art of mixing Beatles with football (although, we must say, Paul McCartney revealed that his family supports Everton, Liverpool F.C. main rival). Anyway, this video above is epic. It depicts Liverpool F.C. fans at the kop singing “She Loves You” to celebrate the 1964 league title. Just watch it to get goosebumps all over you!
