Play-Off Heartbreak Tracks by Rachel Malloch



Rachel Malloch – @RachelVillavox

While the dust still hasn’t settled on a play off final that will forever be remembered for the samba stopper’s heroics and some incomprehensible officiating, the game that in years to come will evoke mixed emotions of a spirited team performance, of covid capped support and being part of the bright vociferous yellow army, a fairy-tale of Ashton Gate cruelly thwarted by the man in black.

I may some day be able to hear Sweet Caroline without that lead weight churning in the pit of my stomach or a heavy heart, but for the seagull that flew over us moments before the goal that stood, here’s some sounds that restore the equilibrium and hopefully bring some cheer.

Happiness – Goldfrapp

Muchos Mambo – Shaft

Hey Lloyd I’m ready to be heartbroken – Camera Obscura

Lip up fatty – Bad Manners

The Correspondents – fear and delight

COYY – Rachel
