The chorus of the song resembles the chorus of a Dutch popular song "Oranje Boven" which insist the link between Netherlands with the Royal Dutch Family and a national chant honoring the red-white-blue tricolor Dutch national flag.

The song was included in E-Type's album Euro IV Ever (2001), and in the Sport Edition of Loud Pipes Save Lives (2004). It was also included in The Official Euro 2000 Album.
