New Order - World In Motion (CD):
Pretty, Pretttyyyy, Pretty Good!

Without a doubt, the best football song ever, NO contest!

Now, we all know that's not saying much, as 99.99% of football songs are 100% cringe-worthy, but this one was something else.

Poppy enough for mainstream appeal, yet still popular with long-time New Order fans such as myself, and with enough house influence to appeal to the ravers like me.

With its "It's E for England!" chant, referencing the England team as well as the MDMA-influenced rave scene of the time, this record totally captured the atmosphere here in the UK at the time.

I think you had to be there at the time, though - I was never a big football fan (which is hard to admit if you live in Manchester as I do - here, you HAVE to be either "Red" or "Blue") but I met my soon-to-be wife immediately after watching the England v Italy World Cup game, so this song has personal memories attached to it, as well as being a reminder of the excitement which was present back in the summer of 1990.

Despite living with the aftermath of Thatcher-era deindustrialisation, 1990 was a great time to live in the UK, totally unlike now - back then there was plenty to take our mind off how politicians were trying to destroy our communities. Whereas now, it's hard to even find somewhere to party - with clubs and venues closing at an alarming rate, and most abandoned buildings being turned into "luxury" flats, I barely recognise my country in comparison to 25 years ago.

Politics aside, even MC John Barnes couldn't ruin this one. Great stuff, but not really one for New Order newbies - start with the early singles ;)
