Anyone who knows me is privy to the knowledge that I’m actually obsessed with soccer, and in particular, the Australian national team, the Socceroos. This song is by two of England’s most creative footballers ever: Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle. Recorded in an era when sportspeople would hit the charts with novelty songs, Diamond Lights is a cracker piece of 80s pop with weird post-punk undercurrents.
