Football is to James as Hockey is to the Tragically Hip

"What a surprise "Goal" was! Quite rousing, especially with the aid of cold beer! Made me want to smash heads like a continental bound soccer 'ooligan, COR!More James fans in the US would assure more tour dates. Eno IS God: "No more words; all's been said and done...""
Great song and video, but Goal Goal Goal?

"If you are reading this, you are obviously a James fan. So, I will assume that you already know the song Just Like Fred Astaire from their Millionaires album, and know how great it is. Therefore, I'll move along to the b-sides. Mary is a pretty good song, reminiscent of some from Millionaires (obviously) but nothing too special really. And then we move along to Goal Goal Goal. Remember the excellent song from the James album Laid called Low Low Low? Well, this is Low Low Low with the words rewritten to be a SOCCER song. Now what the heck is up with that? It is good for a laugh or two, but will get old quickly. Now, on to the real reason to buy this single: the video. The video for JLFA is just pure brilliance. It is easily the best James video I have ever seen. It revolves around Booth lying on the ground and people trying to revive him and bring him back to life after a heart failure, all the while he is looking around not quite understanding what is going on. Granted, this is probably a terrible description of this, but trust me, the symbolism and the brilliance of the video is truly worth it. It defintely makes up for the slightly lackluster b-sides. Do buy this single if you are a James fan!"
