World Cup 2006 Blog

From our reporters in Germany

Any suggestions for England music?

paul_atherton.gifIBC, MUNICH – Every week we receive hundreds of emails about music used on BBC Sport coverage. Here assistant producer Sarah Williams explains the process behind picking a piece of music.

One of the most enjoyable jobs as an assistant producer is choosing music for features and montages. It’s not as easy as you would think though! Sometimes it’s important to pick a track with suitable lyrics, but sometimes instrumental music works better.
I recently spent two days trying to find an appropriate piece of music for an England montage. In the end I chose a track called ‘Best Days’ by new band Cord. It contains the lyrics, “So come alive, seize the time, these could be the best days of our lives”. Often classical or film soundtracks are ideal for the World Cup. They can stir up a lot more emotion.
One of my colleagues Steve Lyle picked a track from the film Crash to accompany his review of the tournament so far. It proved very popular with the viewers and we received loads of emails asking what the track was.
Traditional music from a particular country often works better than pop or rock (the Germans might not agree!) as it gives you a flavour of the culture. We tend to pick the music first, and then cut the pictures to it. The music can give you inspiration and creative ideas editorially. A fast track would obviously have a lot more quick cuts between images, whereas a slow track requires more super slow motion pictures.
mp3 players definitely make life much easier. On previous tournaments we have had to cart out our whole CD collection but now our luggage is much lighter and we can collate our music much easier!
Any suggestions for music for our next England montage?

Not sure if you can use unsigned bands and artists for the montages, but may I suggest some of my own tracks - very "montage", imagery, instrumental stuff. Try "Croydon Library" and "Never Alone remix" for starters....

Ode to Isis by ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead would be a good one, never heard it used anywhere on UK tv yet, altho I think maybe the NBA did use it last year for the start of games. It's perfect for these kind of montages and is certainly far less obvious than using anything from the new Sigur Ros album!!

Hello,

I have always hoped to see a montage with Magical Dream by 808 State (album 808:90) as the words used in it convey both dissapointment and joy.
Plus it has the great ending line which is:
"Come with us and have no fear, just close your eyes and disappear".

I imagine this end being perfect with that slow motion image of a player closing his eyes in disappointment after missing the penalty that sees his side going out of the competition.

There is a fantastic track by a band called Dirty Vegas, called "Human Love." I'm a fan anyway, but found the lyrics particularly pertinent after watching us win the Ashes last year:

"When you've waited for so long,
To be where you are and
where you're coming from.
When you gave it all so much
In return for human love."

It's got a great strings arrangement on it, and the melody can be interpreted as either uplifting or sadly reflective. Good for either eventuality: lifting the trophy or being cruelly denied by a dodgy decision / the lottery of penalties...

There's only one track you should use when England progress to the Quarter Finals and that's JOHN PARR VS TOMMYKNOCKERS: 'NEW HORIZON'.

The track's just awesome, really upbeat with the lyrics:

'I can see a new horizon, underneath the blazing sky.

I'll be where the eagle's flying, higher and higher.'

AWESOME FOR WHEN ENGLAND STEAM PAST ECUADOR AND INTO THE QUARTERS WITH A COMMANDING PERFORMANCE!

"Higher and Higher!"

Just going through my iTunes list and I have come up with a couple of songs:

IF England go out, how about "Better Do Better" by Hard-Fi or "Two More Years" by Bloc Party (two more years until the next major tournament)

IFEngland carry on going through, how about "Bang Bang You're Dead" by Dirty Pretty Things or "time For Heroes" by The Libertines

IF England win it, how about "Freakin' Out" by Graham Coxon since that is what the country would be doing or "Cigarello" by The Fratellis

"Oh wow look at me now - I'm building up my problems to the size of a cow". Watching England leads us to consider the state of our world cup campaign disproportionately, in relation to how much it all really should matter.
Does that make sense? I dunno, after 3 games, the stress has toasted my brain! Basically I suggest 'Size of a Cow', by The Wonderstuff. Ads

Montage accompaniment suggestion: A good friend of mine writes n records his own music at home.Some of it is great.

His track called "Shaken" is quite energetic and would accompany shots of balls blasting in goals/misses/errors really well and he'd remix it to suit your needs to !!!

www.myspace.com/raggylad and click on the track called shaken.

Other than that...Bob Segers "Hollywood Nights" is a really powerful song of hope and nostalgia...builds to a strong ending too.

Cheers

Mark

IF England get knocked out or just as a general montage for all the nations knocked out in the group stages I would suggest 'Im Just That Good' by The Calling
It opens with the line 'A little paint to cover whats deep inside
A little truth you know we all wanna hide'.
Plus the first verse reads
'I gotta hand it to you now
your a hard one to please,
When it looks as though youve got all you need,
All the many times ive dreamed i could walk in your shoes
what a knightmare it must be just being you.....Dont hate me coz im just that good.
Could touch a nerve or two.

if you are looking for upbeat.

Or for montage
The Private Psychedelic Reel by Chemical Brothers

or there are loads that could be used by DJ Shadow / UNKLE / or anything off the mo' wax label.

Well, if you're going to make a montage of all the errors, poor play, & comedy moments that England have provided us with so far (& let's face it, you've got a bigger selection to choose from...), start with that ludicrous 2nd Swedish goal, & what else but Laurel & Hardy's signature tune!

tune is called 'trojan' by 'subliminal system' and its new, from the uk, breakbeat dance music with a decent melody. would make a change from the terrible stadium rock music itv seem obsessed with!

Hi, how about 'Stay/Far away so close' by U2. The only reason why is because the video for this song was shot in Belin around 1993. It's a cool underated song by U2. Might be appropriated for a sentimental perhaps farwell montage for Berlin (the BBC's base).

While I'm talking about U2 - Zoo Station, named after a railway station in Berlin. Also Zooropa - Bono even sings a line of German in this song 'Zooropa...vorsprung durch technik' (The opening lyric)

My favourite piece of football montage music was during the 2002 world cup (which I suggested at the time). Before Ireland's match against Spain, M.O.T.D showed a piece featuring the good days of Irish football with 'With or without you' as backing music - magic! Thanks again!

To Win Just Once by the Sawdoctors
----------------------------------

To win just once would be enough
For those who’ve lost in life and love
For those who’ve lost their guile and nerve
Their innocence, their drive and verve
For those who feel they’ve been mistreated
Discriminated, robbed or cheated
To claim one victory inspired
To win just once is their desire


To win just once against the odds
And once be smiled on by the Gods
To race with speed along the track
Break the tape and not look back
To never have considered losing
As if to win is by your choosing
Bare you soul for all to find
An honest heart and an open mind


To Win just once
That would be enough
So come all ye fulltime smalltown heroes
Cast away your inbred fears of
Standing out from all the rest
The cynics and the pessimists
The self-indulgent almost rich
The blatant hurlers on the ditch
Time is passing so come on
And face the ball, the game is on

So Low by Ocean Colour Scene with the lyrics:

And we laugh and we drink
and we teach ourselves not to think
we never did get it right
since we got it so low

Day We Caught The Train by the same band is always a classic!

A great poignant song for when (ok, lets be an optimist!) if England get knocked out would be 'Tears Are In Your Eyes' by Yo La Tengo.

A perfect accompaniment to Beckham and co babbling like Gazza after Riquelme et al reek havoc in the final.

Look it up and have a listen.

As the World Cup is within English sight I think Depeche Mode's "World in My Eyes" would be good especially as DM are the best English band of all time and the most under rated. Very appropriate for our boys out in Germany!

Mind you, what with England's underwhelming performances so far, I'd go with Badly Drawn Boy's 'Disillusion'; lyrics including "Seems you've created your own illusion, fuelled by an image of me" fit the fans world-beater expectations.

You can use "09/07 in Heaven" by MANHUG which is one of the best World Cup Anthems this year. It has been adopted by several radio stations as their official anthem and has been played on BFBS (British Forces Radio) to the troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Cyprus, Germany etc

Shameless self-promotion i know but you certainly have our permission to use that. It is very upbeat and th elyrics are quirky and fun, and unlike Embrace they actually mention things like England, and Rooney etc etc!

I think you should stick to the style of the So Far montage, it was brilliant - really breathtaking.

I also think Elgar's Enigma Variation 9 (Nimrod) would be a powerful, very English piece to use if we go out.

But if we win you should use the original version of "Heroes" by Bowie, a classic song and subject to a mauling of a cover version on the ITV coverage!

I vote for a little known gem by Muse called "Shine Acoustic" on their Hullabaloo soundtrack. The opening verses have a hymnal quality with moments of sadness and beauty, perfect for that beleaguered Sweden game. Then it swells up powerfully into a dramatic (but not overdone reprise) before lifting the roof with hope and emotion. Bittersweet lyrics, perfect for both fuelling the dream and expressing the agony:


Who cares for the life we earned?
Someone sold all the truth you learned
Remember when you used to shine
And had no fear or sense of time?
When it creeps up on you


You can cry now there's nothing to feel
No one's noticed our loneliness
Remember when you should have teased
And made us scream eternal joy


I believe that you'll always be here
'Cause once you promised a life with no fear
Please don't break my ideals
And say what's fake was always real
Hope was the one
Now I'm gone
Take me back again

I think the cover of Impossible Dream by Carter USM, good for both lyrics and changes in mood in the music. It was originally on the soundtrack of Don Quixote, but the Carter version seems better for the circumstances! :-)

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

Here I am in Canada reading these choices for a montage and what comes over is how cynical most of you are. They are OUR lads, they are doing their best ... I can't get over the criticism ... The UK press is notorious for how awful they are - catering to a negative audience, no wonder. GO ENGLAND GO, whether you make it or not you have my support.

These are two tracks that I recently listened to which each bring out very different emotions but both applicable to a footballing montage.

First off, Pyramid Song by Radiohead I feel captures intensity and tension initially, and builds up nicely.

Secondly, Kiss Ya Lips by Ian Brown starts very jovially, and conjures images of a football celebration (almost samba-like), even though the lyrics do seem to be about the perils of ID cards....

In My Life by The Beatles is perfect for any final. Especially if England win it. Wonderfully nostalgic and sentimental. In the more depressing event that the 3 Lions bow out early, D.O.A by Foo Fighters is a great song. Particularly the lyric: "Take a good hard look for the very last time, the very last one in a very long line". Could be very apt as World Cups are only every 4 years and this is not only Sven's last tournament with England, but possibly also Beckham and Neville's last major comp.

you want dramatic? you want rousing? you want something that conveys english spirit and fight? you need something stirring that will cover a several minute montage ad give goose pimples to the viewers?
we are now in the knockout stages, every second brings an intake of breath, an extra beat of the heart.
we need something that brings us together with a solidarity and determination.
My suggestion.

Holst: Mars - The bringer of war.

ps: great montage before the paraguay game, i loved it.

watch it spin around to a beautiful oblivion

If we win

Well, cliche, but you have to play "3 lions on the shirt"

would have to be done.

If you're looking for dramatic, choose some Godspeed You! Black Emperor or A Silver Mount Zion, although their scores can last quite a while. However, minutes 5-8 of 'Providence' off the album F# A# (Infinity) always strike a major chord if you want drama and poignancy joined together. Some Eno wouldn't go amiss, actually: 'Here Come the Warm Jets' off the self-titled album would be interesting as well.

Also, if you were to separate the lyrics about death and prostitution, 'Street Hassle' by Lou Reed would be absolutely ideal. Its use on the film The Squid and The Whale is first class. Again, a long one, but with some editing, would make any montage, negative or otherwise, last in the mind of the viewer for sometime. It would with me, anyway.

If you're after a song which would complement some quick editing and shots, then I would suggest 'Remember Me' by British Sea Power, off their debut album The Decline of British Sea Power. Fast paced, stirring, and the opening riffs coupled with the England team arriving out of the tunnel would go together fantastically well.

Sorry if I come across as a pretentious idiot, but I hope this helps. Overall, the BBC get it spot on when it comes to music, and your choices more often than not, always raise a smile. However, anything can beat Kasabian's rendition of 'Heroes' on ITV: absolutely atrocious.

It has to be Oasis, Roll with it...

I've inserted a few possible scenes to cut with the lyrics...

(J Cole cue up & Gerrard goal v Sweden)
You gotta roll with it
You gotta take your time
You gotta say what you say
Don't let anybody get in your way
'Cause it's all too much for me to take

(Gerrard 2nd v T&T)
Don't ever stand aside
Don't ever be denied
You wanna be who you'd be
If you're coming with me

(Hislop face after that Gerrard goal)
I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside
I think I'm gonna take me away and hide
I'm thinking of things that I just can't abide

(A mix of Beckham, Rooney, lampard runs, etc)
I know the roads down which your life will drive
I find the key that lets you slip inside
Kiss the girl, she's not behind the door
But you know I think I recognize your face
But I've never seen you before

(More runs, tackles, getting bounced around etc..)
You gotta roll with it
You gotta take your time
You gotta say what you say
Don't let anybody get in your way
'Cause it's all too much for me to take

(Flashback through all the different cities/stadia England have played in..and will)
I know the roads down which your life will drive
I find the key that lets you slip inside
Kiss the girl, she's not behind the door
But you know I think I recognize your face
But I've never seen you before
(Final shot of the World Cup itself)

This song was played amongst others on all Liverpool's away trips on the road to Istanbul. Worked then for Gerrard & Co, put to pictures might it not do the same again for England....?

If you want to continue with haunting themes for your excellent montages, how about "Send in the Clowns" by Judy Collins?

Not only is it very atmospheric, its lyrics include "me here at last on the ground, you in mid-air" and "losing my timing this late in my career".

Open Your Eyes was the track used at the end of the stunning series of E.R. and it matched perfectly. 2 amazing songs with so much potential, I wish I had your job, I really do!!!!

Keep up the good work.

Liking 'She moves in her own way', maybe not the most fitting lyrically, but mentions monday tuesday etc. Also a nice upbeat track, maybe for a goal review. Using the bridge for a bit of a shock result?

Also a bit of electric guitar riff, maybe for players giving a bit of a shout, then a nice break, maybe a penalty moment?

City of Blinding Lights would be a good one if they actually do manage to get to the final and even win it!!!!!
