Brave New World

Songs That Say Something About Current Crazy Times!

Recommended Posts

As per tite, could be a whole song or just a passage of lyrics; songs that some up nicely the consumer/greed/hpc ponzi times:

Eddie Veder, Society

Maybe not quite what you were expexting, but she has got a loverly bum. :D

I looked for any performance of "for everyone who feels inclined". Didn't find it, but found something that should appeal to HPCers

and one for the coalition

And this one goes out with not much affection to their Tory Lordships Ashcroft, ******** and Laidlaw. And of course Sir Philip Green. Its a song about duty chaps, you wouldn't understand.

In spite of all temptations, to belong to other nations, he remains an Englishman...

Wrote a really long reply. And lost it. Bah. :lol:

Anyways. 4 from Weller:

The great depression. A must for the HPC crowd. 'nuff said.

The planners dream went wrong.

I love this one. They were gonna build communities, it was going to be pie in the sky, but the piss stenched hallways and broken down lifts say the planners dream went wrong.

Money Go round:

It's no good praying to the powers that be

'Cause they won't shake the roots of the money tree

No good praying to the pristine alters

Waiting for the blessing with Holy water

They like the same old wealth in the same old hands

Means the same old people stay old people stay in command

The Lodgers (or she was only a shopkeepers daughter)

No peace for the wicked - only war on the poor

They're battling on pickets - trying to even the score

It's all inclusive - the dirt comes free

And you can be all that you want to be

Oh an equal chance and an equal say

But equally there's no equal pay

There's room on top - if you tow the line

And if you believe all this you must be out of your mind

The real irony is they were all targeted at tory goverments, but apply even moreso to the last labour one. Particularly The Lodgers, where Gordon Brown really did put the lodgers terms in disgrace with his refusal to yield the election.

Economic forecast soothe our dereliction

Words of euthanasia, apathy of sick routine

Carried away with useless advertising dreams

Blinding children, life as autonotomes

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds

Blackhorse apocalypse

Death sanitised through credit

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds

Blackhorse apocalypse

Death sanitised through credit

Barclays iron eagle, "33 injection"

Sold to advertisers, computer execution line

They give and take away, repossess and crucify

The more you own the more you are, lonelier with cheap desire

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds

Blackhorse apocalypse

Death sanitised through credit

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds

Blackhorse apocalypse

Death sanitised through credit

Prosperity - exports for Pol Pot

Prosperity - Mein Kampf for beginners

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds

Blackhorse apocalypse

Death sanitised through credit

NatWest, NatWest-Barclays-Midlands-Lloyds

Blackhorse apocalypse

Death sanitised through credit

Got on the train from Cambridgeshire
Moved down to an East London flat
Got a moustache and a low cut vest
Some purple leggings
and a sailor tat
Just one gear on my fixie bike
got a plus one here for my gig tonight
I play synth...
We all play synth
20-20 vision just a pair of empty frames
Dressing like a nerd although i never got the grades
I remember when the kids at school would call me names
Now were taking over their estates
woah ho

(chorus)
I love my life as a dickhead
All my friends are dickheads too
come with me lets be dickheads
(havent you heard?)
being a dickhead's cool
being a dickhead's cool
being a dickhead's cool
being a dickhead's cool cool cooooool

Polaroid app on my iphone
taking pictures on London Fields
up on the blog so everyone knows
were having new age fun, with a vintage feel
coolest kids at a warehouse rave
exclusive list look theres my name
I got in...
You couldn't get in

never bought a pack of fags i only roll my own
plugging in my laptop at the starbucks down the road
say i work in media im really on the dole
im the coolest guy you'll ever know
woah ho


(chorus)
I love my life as a dickhead
All my friends are dickheads too
come with me lets be dickheads
(havent you heard?)
being a dickhead's cool
being a dickhead's cool
being a dickhead's cool
being a dickhead's cool cool cooooool

Loafers with no socks
Electropop meets southern hip hop
Indeterminate sexual preference
Something retro on my necklace
