Candelas – Rhedeg i Paris

This is Candelas performing Rhedig i Paris at the Tafwyl festival in Cardiff.

The song was originally released in 1990 by punk band Yr Anrhefn and inspired by the energy and attitude of the student protest in Paris, 1968.

The Candelas cover version was released for Euro 2016 and, as the band prove here, the chorus has the makings of a top chant – better than the dirge of ‘Don’t Take Me Home’.

Rhedeg i fyny ac i lawr
Rhedeg i Paris
Rhedeg i ffwrdd i ddod yn ol
Dwi’n rhedeg i Paris.

Running up and down
Running to Paris
Running away to come back
I’m running to Paris

And here’s the original:
