Jim Noir Set To Release New Single - Eanie Meany
Hot on the heels of the irresistible My Patch, Jim Noir is set to release Eanie Meany, the song which, by the time of its release, will have earned a curious type of ubiquity as that song off the adidas ad. It features two cheeky young chaps playing street football with an impossible line-up of superstar players including Beckham, Duff, Lampard, Viera and Zidane. As for the lyrics: “If you don’t give my football back I’m gonna get my dad on you/I only kicked it over the fence and broke a silly gnome or two.” Quite.
Believe it or not, Eanie Meany was Jim’s first ever attempt at writing a pop song, back when he was living with ma and pa Noir in Davyhulme, Manchester. “I looked out of me bedroom window at the garden I used to kick the football around in and out it came,” says Jim.
