That time is upon us again. Four years have passed since the World Cup and indeed 40 years have passed since England last manage to raise that trophy above their heads, as victorious champions. Every 4 years, we say this is our time, but every time something goes wrong. Maybe this is the time!

Although World Cup songs have been quite a tradition in the UK, it’s only the last few World Cups, that songs have come out that actually fill you with pride and passion. Who could forget “Three Lions”, which first came out in 1996, marking the 30 year point, of our last winning the cup. “Savva Nuvva” builds on the “Three Lions” anthem and gives us yet another song to get behind, to rouse our team to another World Cup victory.

The main vocalist bears a canny resemblance to Neil Morrissey, he of the TV show Men Behaving Badly. People not in the UK may know him better as the voice of Bob the Builder. I’ve dug down in the website as much as I can, but cannot find anything to substantiate this, but it just has to be him.

So 2006 finds our guys in Germany (Don’t mention the War) and it’s time to kick some serious arse. As I type this, England have already qualified for the next round, having beaten both Paraguay and Trinidad. I’ve mentioned before, that it’s times like these, that I miss living in England. I can just imagine this song “Savva Nuvva” being chanted in the streets and pubs during and after each game. It just has one of those choruses that’s instantly memorable and so great to chant. Come the next round I shall be putting this in my CD player and in best English tradition, I shall SAVVA NUVVA BEER!

Conclusion : This is one of those singles that comes out that you just have to buy. Like a notch on the bedpost or a line drawn on the door frame, this will bring back memories whenever you play it. Let’s hope it’s the best of memories. ENGLAND!
