The Stones originally wrote 'Route 66' about England's path to the 1966 WC Final, but were forced to change the lyrics as it was decided it wouldn't have sold in the American market.

Bryan Adams "Summer of 69" was also about England's World Cup win but being Canadian and only vaguely interested in football, he didn't bother to get his facts right.

Paul Hardcastle also tried this tack, and although he got the year right, due to his stutter, the song only got released as '19'.

I'm 74% tea. 

Grimbo 


and ipso facto 7.5% Twix/Kit Kat et al, 3.7% cucumber sandwich, 11.2% beer, 1.6% pish and 1% you don't want to know about. There might be a review of the pish/beer proportion.
