Spurs fan, unite! Tottenham supporters Ollie Smyth and Andrew Magee have rewritten and performed Dave Henson’s Leicester City song, “Heroes In Blue and White,” to appeal to Spurs fans everywhere, naming it “Heroes in White and Blue.” The song, set to the tune of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start The Fire” sings about famous, not-so-famous, and infamous Tottenham players, managers, matches, and seasons throughout the history of the club.
From the early beginnings of the club in 1882 to the recent days of Defoe and Redknapp, the song will take you on a journey through the history of Spurs by enjoying the victories, remembering the tough losses, and honoring special (and hilarious) players and managers. The song mentions almost anything related to Spurs throughout the club’s existence that’s noteworthy, despite the “tears and pain” that are so often sung about.
“Heroes in White and Blue” sings of 1961, a tremendous year for Spurs as the club took home a double, winning both the Football League First Division and the FA Cup. This victory marked the last time Tottenham won the league at the highest level of English football as the video is sure to point out some of the unlucky times that followed 1961, such as Pedro Mendes’s infamous shot in 2005.
With lines such as “He’s got no hair, we don’t care, Marty Marty Marty Jol,” you’ll be sure to enjoy it, even if you’re an Arsenal supporter.
