Gda Music Songs about sports, any suggestions? (54* d) RE: Songs about sports, any suggestions? 11 Nov 11


Bert: Calypso serves us well on the sporting front. Apart from many cricket memories to be recalled there have always been other achievements to celebrate in song, boxing and athletics for instance. You mention in this case a real cricket calypso classic, *Victory Test Match* (cricket lovely cricket) from Lord Beginner. YouTube has a brilliantly presented clip of that wonderful occasion from 1950.
