Coventry Hitmakers


1987 was a good year for the Sky Blues, they won the FA Cup and got their campaign song Go For It in the charts to boot. Written by husband and wife song writing team Steve and Heather Taylor, it was the soundtrack to that glorious time in the City’s history. Steve & Heather Taylor have also written songs for Shakin’ Stevens and Irish heart- throb Daniel O’Donnell including his biggest hit Give A Little Love.




“The record, released (of course) on the Sky Blue label spent two weeks in the Top 100, making it to number 61, whereas opponents Spurs’ record that year reached the Top Twenty, getting to number 18. I had risen to the heady heights of Managing Director and Programme Controller at Mercia by that time, and I decreed that not only would we not play the Spurs record, but that we would play “Go For It!” as often as a Top 10 record – on very high rotation. Needless to say it was Number 1 on Mercia’s own chart by the time the Cup Final came round”.
