Song of the day: #10 Dutch Uncles – "Fabio Acapella"

If we must have World Cup records, they should be like this one from Manchester indie types Dutch Uncles, the most conceptually awesome effort i've heard this tournament. It sounds a wee bit like John Cage scoring a potential England XI starting line-up, which is clearly amazing.

My favourite thing about it is the way the whole idea for the song seems to have been suggested by the title pun, with the music being worked out to fit that. i'm a total sucker for that kind of conceptual rigour.

Shame about Rio Ferdinand at 0:27, but you can't win 'em all.
