A Dark Horse - Take Me Home

Is it really less than a week until this year's European Football Championship begins? Apparently so, which means that across Europe everyone is lining up to support their chosen country (or countries) in the competition. And it's not just the football world that gets into it, the music world also tends to go a bit crazy at this time of year too.

Which brings us to Irish duo Hugh Rogers and James Parker, who record under the name A Dark Horse. Although it is not really a football song, the video for the "Take Me Home" is themed around the World Cup of Italia '90, showing the duo as kids celebrating the Republic of Ireland's progress in that year's tournament. The song itself is a rather charmingly folksy ode to years gone by.

"Take Me Home" is taken from the E.P of the same name, which will be released in July.
