CYCM comedian is singing for England

United fans may not generally get too carried away with the World Cup and all that it brings but as a glut of unofficial England songs hit the airwaves there’s a familiar face - and voice - behind one of them.

’Get Your Hopes Up (Win, Win, Win)’ is a very tongue-in-cheek offering from Gideon Conn, a well known performer from our club night in the afternoon at the wrong end of the tram tracks, Course You Can Malcolm.

Since serenading some of the FC United faithful back in 2008 with his absurd brand of musical comedy, Conn has teamed up with Inspiral Carpets organist and Xfm presenter Clint Boon to release strange but catchy ditty dedicated to the England team.

If Fabio’s boys are in need of some inspiration out in South Africa maybe Conn and Boon are best avoided as the song contains lines such as, "Jamie said to Jeremy whilst stood at the urinal, I’ll give you the keys to my car if England make the final."

And with the song being a bit different, it seems fitting that Conn decided to don an FC United shirt in the video. Have a look for yourself by watching Get Your Hopes Up (Win, Win, Win) on youtube and by visiting Gideon Conn on myspace.
