Though undoubtedly a fine player in his pomp, it’s bloody amazing that Chris Waddle emerged from his playing career with a single iota of credibility given his repeated dalliance with producing god-awful, ultra-tacky pop music.

Just four short years after joining forces with Glenn Hoddle to form footballing supergroup “Glenn & Chris” and unleashing power ballad standard ‘Diamond Lights‘ (a number 12 hit in the UK, no less) on the world, Waddle decided it was high time to launch an assault (a word which has never been used so aptly) on the French charts.

Along with Marseille teammate Basile Boli, Waddle released an utter turd of a song “We’ve Got A Feeling” in 1991, which was accompanied by an equally turdish promo video…


Thanks Chris, we’ve got a feeling too now: Acute nausea.
