Umbro Playlist for Everton

After a pretty lengthy wait, our first Umbro Playlist in a while has arrived in time for the game against Everton tomorrow night.

The match was originally scheduled for the start of the season, but Everton's Europa League exploits put paid to that.

The theme for this match was chosen around the time of St David’s Day, and with Craig Bellamy being one of City’s best players this season, we also thought that a trio of Welsh songs would be a great tribute to him. Perhaps it’ll inspire him to bag a couple at the match tomorrow night! We got plenty of great suggestions for Welsh tracks, once you start thinking about it, there’s more out there than you think!

As always it was a difficult decision to pick out a clear winner, but we decided that Tom Howard deserved to win as he’d gone the extra mile and given reasons for his choices. Here’s what he came up with:

Tom Jones & Stereophonics – Mama Told Me Not To Come (a double dose of Welsh-ness)

Super Furry Animals – Do Or Die (it’s that time of the season)

Manic Street Preachers – You Love Us (City know this is how you feel about them)

Three great uplifting songs from Tom, who wins a pair of tickets to the game, and the chance to hear his choices blasting out around the ground.

After a long wait for a home game, the next one will be with us almost instantly, as City entertain Wigan next Monday evening. With Monday being an unusual day for a football match, the theme for this Umbro Playlist is songs that mention days of the week. Whether it’s in the title or the lyrics, we want those songs that mention anything from Monday to Sunday. Best of luck – get your thinking caps on and get your songs suggested!
