Lightning Seeds frontman and Liverpool fan Ian Broudie has selected a playlist on the theme of celebration to mark the Reds’ title triumph

WORDS Simon Hart

He is the songwriter who gave us the England national team’s much-loved anthem Three Lions – aka Football’s Coming Home – but for Ian Broudie, talk of home and football means only one thing right now: Anfield.

As he explains in an interview in issue 4 of Champions Journal – which is now available for pre-order – it is one of the places he has missed most in his home city during the Covid-19 lockdown and it came to the fore again when the Liverpool-supporting Lightning Seeds frontman agreed to put together a playlist for us. 

Not surprisingly, Gerry and the Pacemakers’ rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone features as does the Beatles’ She Loves You – another song heard on the Anfield Kop during the Mersey beat era of the early 60s.

It was during that decade, he tells us, that his father and two uncles first acquired the season tickets that have remained with the Broudies to this day. “Now my brother, myself and my son Riley still have the three tickets. We’re in the big stand. I very much miss going to the match and the whole ritual of that.” 

Like all Anfield regulars, he has been unable to celebrate in person the coronation of Jürgen Klopp’s side as league champions but with songs such as the Specials’ Enjoy Yourself and Amen Corner’s If Paradise is Half as Nice there is certainly a celebratory thread running through this playlist.
