Getting in on the Act - Singing Along for England

The current bone of contention in England (OK, apart from the major occurrence of butterfingers) is that there is NO official World Cup England Song.

Most Official England Songs are beyond horrendous. Here's an example from 20 years ago:

Nevertheless, a few people have tried to put this 2010 omission right. The News of the World newspaper (misnomer if ever there was one) was in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, drumming up support for their single Cabanga (by Joe Public United):

 Are all lions called Leo? That could get complicated...

And what better to get us all in the mood than a quick conga round the back of Nelson's column and past the National Gallery?

Leo leads the Conga round the square

But the NOTW has competition. James Corden and Dizzee Rascal have recorded a re-work of a Tears for Fears song: 'Shout for England':

The NOTW didn't read the small print: if it's a #1 single you want, it's Simon Cowell you need. And guess what? "Shout for England" was #1 yesterday.

Never mind, eh Leo?
