"News And Tributes" as written by David Craig, Barry Hyde, David Hyde and Ross Millard....
Cut down in their prime
In silence, on that day
February 58, they got what they need
From Belgrade and back home to sleep

More than a name, to millions
What could have been changed
By all the boys leaving Munich on that day
The snow came and sent them to sleep

[Chorus:]
(This, fall, was, greater than them all)
News and tributes come leaking (in)
As all eyes turn to Rome
I forgotten the sadness (feel)
Voices turn us towards

Cut down in their prime
In silence, on that day
February 58, they got what they need
From Belgrade and back home to sleep

[Chorus]

(This, fall, was, greater than them all)
News and tributes come leaking (in)
As all eyes turn to Rome,
I forgotten the sadness (feel),
Voices turn us towards.
They're still singing despite the (years)
Sending them back into Rome,
There's a ringing in the (ears),
That lasts them here to war.

News and tributes,
(Lick it in
Lick it in,
Lick it in)

    General CommentObviously this song is about the British Airways crash that happened February 6th, 1958 which killed 7 members of Manchester United's football (soccer) team.

    If you remember the day as vividly as the members of Futureheads, and myself, you will recall watching the tele and seeing a newscaster come on once an hour to update viewers on the status of the soccer stars.

    (none of this was actually obvious for me, and I had to look it up, the following is an article about the event)

    General CommentTo 1111, I see you Leeds fans are showing your class again eh? Why not grow up and leave your sniping to your more current rivals, i.e. Huddersfield Town.
