Leeds United Song - Or Is It?

Post by 1964white »

Miki Antony song released in 1971.

Can't believe it wasn't a big hit for Miki, those type of songs were massive then.

We probably owe a few quid in royalties then seems as the music has been played at ER every home game for decades.

Nice tune though and everyone needs a Sally Sunshine in their lives.

Hope not!

I'm surprised it wasn't a massive hit for Miki as those type of songs were popular in the 70's, catchy tune.

Expect a JKA type lawsuit from Miki Anthony for copyright infringement and lost revenue.

I hate all this litigation.

Apparently these guys are not happy with Georginio.

Sally Sunshine was written by Les Reed and Geoff Stephens, Reed just reused it for 'Leeds United'.

Cliff did a German version too...

Can’t say I ever heard the other versions back in the day before the Leeds one.

Replace Sally Sunshine with Daniel Farke on the German version and we might have something ?

The PRS royalties go to the writers rather than the performer, who were the same in both cases, basically Steven’s and Reed licensed the tune to as many outlets as possible! Nice one. And nice find.

Les Reed is the key, he wrote the original song & was involved in the Leeds United version.
