"Hurry up Harry, we're going down the pub."
Edifying stuff! This Jimmy Pursey/Dave Parsons composition was released on the Polydor label in October 1978 backed by "No Entry
." It was produced by Pursey with Peter Wilson.
And there it might have ended, but in 2006 - nearly three decades later - it was resurrected as "Hurry Up England - The People's Anthem," which was released as a charity single on the Parlophone label in support of the England football challenge for the World Cup. The song turned out to be a better effort than the team: England won their group but were eliminated by Portugal in the semifinals.
This new version, like the original, charted at #10 in the UK.
