I made this in 2010 and it’s political – centred around the general election and the Labour leadership contest. It’s a bit ‘Baron Knights’ and is not the finest production. I’ve got better at it since.
It also contains three tracks that I was going to use as the basis for a Christmas album but never got round to it!
- Reasons I’m Not Cheerful (part 3)
I always liked Ian Dury and the Blockheads. This is a rework about the state of the nation.
- I Feel Lucky (The leadership song)
The Labour election – a song about four twats and a black bird!
- Bananaman Bit the Dust
Sorry, Freddie! Couldn’t resist rewriting the lyrics to reflect David ‘Bananaman’ Miliband
- He’s My Brother (Red Ed Mix)
The Hollies classic albout Milibandian brotherly love.
- Global Warming (The Ecology Song)
A original song about the global warming to commemorate 1010 day
- Lyin’ Eyes (The Miliband Mix)
This Eagles song was just begging for this treatment. I didn’t even have to change the chorus!
- What a Waste (The Quango song)
Another Ian Dury classic. Whatever happened to that bonfire of Quangos we were going to have?
- Taking It Easy Init?
An Eagles song about lazy people living off the state
- Jack Shit Gordon
Another Ian Dury song, but this time about sitting on your arse at work
- Misery and Wine
Just to prove I dislike Christmas. Cliff really should have recorded it like this!
- The Christmas Song 2010
Christmas is a bloody miserable time for adults, so I figured why not tell it like it is?
- The Day After Christmas
War is over, my arse! Lennon really should have recorded it with these lyrics.
- The Ratshitter Rap
A somewhat disrespectful song about the – now former – Pope
