Official Song?[edit]

Greetings. A Dutch band called Hermes House Band in their 2004 album "Get Ready for Party" recorded a cover of the Three Lions with a different lyrics. This is the video of the song direction [[1]]--Nekko09 (talk) 04:23, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

I made the bold claim that Three Lions was not the official song of Euro 96 (essentially from memory), although the evidence around on the net seems slightly contradictory. Is it possible that it was the offical song of the England team, while the tournament had Simply Red as its offical song?

Relevant pages I found are:

--RitKill 19:32, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

There is a difference between a team's official song and that of the tournament. The tournament song in 1996 was by Simply Red, but Three Lions was definitely the official song of the England team in '96. This can be verified by a simple look at its cover - not only does it state that it was the official England team song, but it uses the FA-trademarked "Three Lions" badge, which Baddiel/Skinner/etc wouldn't have been allowed to otherwise use (indeed, they couldn't use it for the cover of Three Lions '98, but the badge did appear on the official Ian McCulloch/Spice Girls record).

"We'll go on getting bad results"[edit]

Is that really Motson? I always thought it was Jimmy Hill... Angmering 21:52, 18 June 2006 (UTC)

It certainly sounds like Motson to me.. although my mom thinks it's Hill..

My memory may be failing me here — it's been ten years, after all! — but in the video aren't they watching the various pundits say these things on TV at the start? Could someone who's seen the video confirm whether it's Hill or Motson? (If indeed the video does run as I vaguely remember it). Angmering 19:54, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
Since the very first time I heard it I've thought it was Des Lynam. --Ross UK 04:40, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

It's definitely Jimmy Hill, Motson is a commentator not a pundit and probably wouldn't say that kind of thing anyway. However with regard to the video, there is a bit with Jimmy Hill and other pundits but that isn't sync'd to the thr bit with the words "We'll go on getting bad results". Jooler 12:38, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Not it's not Motson. But I don't think it Hill. I agree with Ross UK, there's never been any question in my mind that it's Lynam.--Buc 16:03, 9 July 2006 (UTC)

I don't think it's Lynam - the one that Trevor Brooking says sounds more like Lynam to me 62.30.77.61 13:43, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

2006[edit]

I know for a fact that this was played in Germany, i was in Munich when England defeated Ecuador, saw this being played by the offical fan fest band.

Who is Psycho? '98[edit]

I's like to see a sentence explaining the line "Psycho screaming" in the '98 version. KXL 18:39, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Psycho was the nickname of Stuart Pearce. DublinDilettante 08:50, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Parodies[edit]

should some of the more famous parodys be mentioned in the article? The C of E (talk) 16:00, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

If there are famous parodies, I see no reason why not. -moritheilTalk 22:59, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Move Three Lions to Three Lions (Song)[edit]

This article Three Lions should be move to Three Lions (Song) as the term Three Lions is a more popular term for Lions passant Mr Taz (talk) 21:01, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi, you should really have waited for a response before moving, as there are now lots of articles which are now on a redirect. I'm going to request it be placed back where it was and then see what people think, as it's just as easy to place a hatnote at the top. Bob talk 00:31, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Why not make a Three Lions disambiguation page, which could direct users here or to the other use of the term? -moritheilTalk 22:58, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure that's any help - why not just put a hat-note on the top of this article? I'll do it now, in fact. Bob talk 23:01, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
I suppose. Of course, the real issue is that Mr Taz claims another use of "Three Lions" is more important, which if true would mean we would have to consider which one should be on top and which one should be in the link. But I don't have any means of judging that, so I think for now the hat-note seems like the most reasonable course of action. -moritheilTalk 05:23, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Not lions at all[edit]

It was reported on the BBC's QI programme (Season I, episode 3), on which Frank Skinner was a guest, that the '3 lions' of the song (and England shirt) are not, in fact, lions at all, but leopards - in heraldic terms lions are quite different. Frank Skinner noted that "that would have caused him some scanning problems". Worth including? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.6.188.63 (talk) 17:57, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
