620-The Vaccines-If You Wanna.
2012-Number 35 single.
Best Bit-At 0.47.They sound like Johnny,Dee Dee,Joey and Tommy and that’s not a criticism,it’s a compliment.

Lead singer and chief songwriter Justin Young explained the song ‘I wanted us to have a song with really downbeat lyrics juxtaposed with a poppy and upbeat melody.’
‘Do you wanna come back it’s alright it’s alright it’s alright if you wanna come back to me.’

COMING NEXT THE BIG 620

You’ve got to hold and give
but do it at the right time
you can be slow or fast
but you must get to the line
they’ll always hit you and hurt you
defend and attack
there’s only one way to beat them
get round the back
catch me if you can
’cause I’m the England man
and what your looking at
is the master plan
