Does anyone know if the names of the big Irish world cup songs that were around in the 1988 Euro championships and the 1990 World Cup. There's one song I can't think of but its based on "We didn't start the fire" by Bruice Springsteen. Does anyone know if they are available on CD????

There was a tape with a load of them on it for the 90 world cup, got it free in garages (think I threw it out last year). But you can't beat "put em under pressure"....class

We didn't start the fire was the remix of Billy Joel's song not Bruce Springstein.

There was also Put Em Under Pressure ('90) which i have on mp3 for anyone that wants?

Give it a lash jack, were all part of jackies army, Mighy Quinn (re release), and Joe O'Toole - Were going to America (for 94) were all other irish footie songs.

God I'm so sad to remember all of those!!!!

Ah remember them all well. The best one was "World Cup...Ire...land...World Cup...Ire...land..." Pretty sure those were the only lyrics. May be mistaken. Classic.

Thanks for correcting that. It was Billy Joel. Send on any MP3's you have of these world cup songs or where I could get them.

Still can't find it though

Another re-working, but this time of a more recent tune is `The Game' by The Memorieswhich is musically identical to Billy Joel's recent world-wide smash `We Didn't Start The Fire'. Joel was so impressed with the version that he learnt the new lyrics and performed the it at his Dublin concert on Saturday.

In '88 you had 'Give it a Lash Jack' as the official song, brutal
'90 'Put 'em under pressure' was the official one but you had also as stated above the Memories with their re-make of the Billy Joel song and that twat that used to be on the Jerry Ryan show, what the hell was his name ???, that sang ‘Que Sera, Sear’, terrible muck.
Then in ’94 you had the worst of the lot, ‘Watch your House for Ireland (goodbye Europe Hello USA)’ the official song with lyrics like ‘In Orlando, Magic Wando’ ?????, where do they come up with this tripe……Some people dubbed it ‘Burn your house for Ireland’.

The only one I remember from ’02 is something called ‘Sianara to Connemara’……

Why can’t we have goof world cup songs like the English, ‘World in Motion’ was good and ‘Three Lions’ was so good it was even No 1 here in Ireland.

Don't talk rubbish Pol .... There was no way that three lions was No. 1 in Ireland, No way it would have made it into the top 40.

As far as I recall it was No 1. in the summer of '96 during Euro '96, I'll try and find evidence.

Now what was the name of yer man on teh Jerry Ryan show ????
