(Euro 2012 flavoured!) MP3 of the Day #557: Dutch Uncles

In what appears to become an annual tradition, Marple’s Dutch Uncles have recorded a song to celebrate Euro 2012, or in their words:

The piece ‘Road to Roy’ was composed to represent the anticipation, expectation and excitement that consistently envelops England in the build up to the quadrennial European football Championships. It also signifies the subsequent disappointment at the team’s predictable demise or heartbreaking failure in all the country’s previous appearances in the competition. The piece flows chronologically, beginning with the semi-final defeat to Yugoslavia at Italy ’68, and concludes once again with the mounting excitement towards Euro 2012. Could this finally be England’s year?

Starring famous friends’ backing vocals, ‘Road to Roy’ is a free download you can listen and grab from the widget below.
