On this night in 1990 you were listening to... Put 'Em Under Pressure

A Friday flashback to get your weekend started…

IT’S MAY 1990. World Cup fever has gripped the nation. And the Irish team’s official song, Put ‘Em Under Pressure, is about to grip the top spot in the charts for the entire summer.

What is it about this song that captures the hearts and minds of the Irish people to this day? Maybe it’s the rousing chorus of Olé Olé Olé. Maybe it’s the catchy guitar riff. Maybe it’s the wise, wise words of Jack Charlton.

Maybe it’s because despite our sporting trials and tribulations, we can still listen to this and remember the good times. Ahhh.
