We all keep souvenirs that connect us immediately with important events, people and places. The resonance of such objects evokes a certain nostalgia & gives us that warm glow we get when recalling the past. This is a song about our relationship with such items, cared for amongst our most precious belongings.
In this case, it's a pair of old football boots ... But not just any boots ... The owner believes they were the same pair worn by Football Legend Sir Geoff Hurst in the 1966 World Cup Final, which transforms worn-out old junk into priceless relics ... in the mind of their keeper.
Any proceeds from downloads of this song will got to SPARKS, a leading children’s medical research charity dedicated to funding and championing pioneering research into a range of conditions affecting babies, children and mums-to-be. Sir Geoff Hurst holds the role of Life President.
