Here at VidZone Towers we are as excited as the rest of the world about the upcoming World Cup... it excites us even more because it gives us the chance to feature all the amazing footy songs from over the years!
So... What we were thinking... was... that maybe you could send us the names of your favourite football anthems... Just to make sure we have all of them. That ok? Coooool.
My personal favourite football song lyric of all time, John Barnes... Anfield Rap... "I come from Jamaica, my name is John Barnes When I do my thing the crowd go bananas"... Genius.
We also have a very cool Dan Le Sac Celebrity Playlist - featuring videos from Fever Ray, Dead Prez and Bomb The Bass and a intro video from the guys which they filmed just for us... Which is nice.

Don Fardon - I'm Alive
If you watch TV which I have a feeling most of you do then you will have probably heard the original a fair few times in an advert for a well known fruit juice drink.
Now with a bit of help from celebrated house producer Ashley Beedle and electro house gurus the Dominatorz this old Northern Soul classic has been updated for the dance floors of the nation and with it an awesome video that involves none other than a dancing granddad... I kid you not.
So if its electro house you like, make your way to the Dominatorz version and if it's a little more traditional but still very danceable version you are after, make your way over to the Ashley Beedle edit.
Both videos will be available in all territories for your approval from 3PM on Thursday 20th May
The Ashley Beedle edit is already available to buy now and the Dominatorz and a host of other remixes will be able to buy from your favourite digital record store...
