This song owes it's latest renaissance thanks mainly to notable Villa Celebrity & former Governor Of The Bank Of England Sir Mervyn King, who kindly chose this Aston Villa 1982 European Cup Commemmorative Song during his appearance on the legendary BBC Radio 4 show Desert Island discs in June 2013.

This song was initially written by Doug O' Brien on a small casio keyboard & guitar in his front room on Monday 24th May 1982 & completed immediately on the return journey home from that glorious Rotterdam Final. It has also been played over the PA at Villa Park. Ideal for a 4 minute nostalgic revisit of the most famous & glorious night in our great old Club's remarkable & illustrious history. This track is also available as an instrumental. (See discography)
