The Corrigan Brothers, the Puckane Band whose international hit ‘There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama’ saw them reach ten million TouTube hits and chart all over the world as well as playing for President Barack Obama, have turned their attention to Watford FC and will release “Your Song, Watford 2013” to celebrate Watford’s heroic Championship play-off campaign.
Lead singer Ger Corrigan told the Tipperary Star that the brothers were contacted by a friend who lives in Watford last week and were asked to put a song together.
“We were aware of Elton John’s long standing connection to the club and thought it would be nice to re-work one of his songs. So, we adapted the lyrics to his bit hit ‘Your Song’ and sent it over to our contact,” Ger Corrigan explained.
Within hours the brothers were contacted by the club who were delighted with the song.
“We sent the song on Monday morning and the club contacted us immediately and expressed their delight. They have sent the song to Elton John so it will be nice to hear what he thinks of it. The song went on the Watford website on Tuesday morning and is receiving great attention. We were then invited to attend the play-off final in Wembley on May 27th and perform the song in Watford’s hospitality area for some special guests,” Ger added.
The Corrigan Brothers are currently recording a soundtrack for a commemorative documentary on the 100th anniversary of World War One which is being made by an American TV company and one of their songs has recently appeared in an advertisement campaign in Singapore.
