5. Newcastle United
As Newcastle United become less ‘likely lads’ and more ‘likely garcons’ the official anthem of Newcastle United has been given a makeover as Blaydon Races was updated for the modern age. Originally a song about travelling to the races in the nineteenth century, it now features modern directions like a sat nav set to music. I can’t say it’s good but I can honestly say it will come in handy if you ever get stuck in the one way system at Collingwood Road.
4 Bayern Munich
The champions of Europe have a song worthy of conquering the world. Their official song ‘Stern des Südens‘ has it all: fuzzy guitars, solos and teutonic chanting. It couldn’t be more German if it had Ramstein singing Winds Of Change with a guest appearance by David Hasselhoff.
3 Queen of The South
Every week Queen of The South run on to the pitch to this Teenage Fanclub-ish slice of Scottish pop that tells you exactly what it’s like to be a fan of the Queens: “We might not be the best, sometimes we’re the worst”.
2 Partick Thistle
With a clear debt to Billy Connolly’s D.I.V.O.R.I.C.E this is a really lovely homage to the T.H.I.S.T.L.E.
1 Manchester City
There was only possible winner of Jukebox Durie’s song of the year. Here’s what happens when you earn too much money. Just check out the toys and costumes as you watch Manchester City do the Harlem Shake or Harlem Sheik.

About the Author
After too many years as season ticket holder at Parkhead, Andy Todd renounced the SPL three years ago to support Queens Park. One team is a rank bunch of amateurs who play in a state of the art stadium and the other is…(I think we can all see where this is going).
Andy has been performing comedy for 18 months but is currently ‘between gigs’ while he writes a book on Scottish property law to be published in Summer 2012. Its potential audience will be less than 300 but his mum will be very proud.
