Bbc Scottish Symphony Orchestra Boogies Ahead Of Scotland’s Euro 2020 Campaign

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra – with a little help from a few famous faces including Josh Taylor, Jamie Murray and Lorraine Kelly – has issued an orchestral version of Baccara’s Yes Sir I can Boogie ahead of Scotland’s Euro 2020 campaign



The film had its television premiere closing Sportscene’s Euros Preview on the BBC Scotland channel before launching across social platforms.

Scotland Captain Andy Robertson and his fellow Scotland team-mates, including goalkeepers Craig Gordon and David Marshall,  join in the fun with special appearances throughout the film with BBC Sport colleagues including Eilidh Barbour, Jonathan Sutherland, Amy Irons, Jane Lewis , Connie McLaughlin and Off the Ball’s Tam Cowan and Stuart Cosgrove also lending support.

Eilidh Barbour, who joins the BBC’s Euros 2020 presenting line-up, says: “I just can’t wait to see Scotland walk out of the tunnel at Hampden Park to take their place amongst the top European nations in a major championship. It has been such a long wait, but we are back to boogie on the big stage once again. The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra video captures the feeling around the country, that special night in Serbia, with a song that has become an unofficial anthem. Thank you for that Andrew Considine and come on Scotland!”

Dominic Parker, director of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, adds: “Baccara makes a bit of a change from Beethoven for our players but we know they can turn their musical (and dressing up) skills to any situation. To get involvement from the Scotland team was amazing and to have some more famous faces join us has been great.  We’re thrilled to be supporting the national team in this way and we hope everyone enjoys it.”

The full version of the BBC SSO version of Yes Sir, I Can Boogie can be viewed above.
