Marching on Together

Marching on Together!

I couldn't help it!

Lili of the Valley has fab monthly challenge this month, "Name That Tune". Hahah, as they are here in Leeds as Leeds United is, there cannot be better song for this cute stamped image:

What is "Marching on Together"?

Leeds! Leeds! Leeds! (commonly known as Marching On Together) is the name of the anthem of Leeds United A.F.C. Unlike many football songs that are just new words set to existing music, Leeds! Leeds! Leeds! is an original composition by Les Reed and Barry Mason. The song first appeared in 1972 as the B-side of the record released by Leeds United to coincide with the team reaching the 1972 FA Cup Final, the A-side being titled "Leeds United". The vocals on the original recording were sung by the then-members of the Leeds United team and their supporters. The record stayed in the UK Singles Chart for almost 3 months, peaking at number 10.

That's a little bit of football history for you :)
