It’s 5 o clock in the morning, Conversation got boring, You said you’re going to bed soon, So I snuck off to your bedroom, And I thought i’d just wait there, Untill I heard you come up the stairs, And I pretended I was sleeping, And I was hoping you would creep in with me.
You put your arm around my shoulder, It was as if the room got colder, And we moved closer in together, And started talking about the weather, You said tomorow would be fun, And we could watch A Place In The Sun, I didn’t know where this was going, When you kissed me.
Are you mine? Are you mine? Cos I stay here all the time, Watching telly, Drinking wine, Who’d have known, Who’d have known? When you flash up on my phone, I no longer feel alone, No longer feel alone.
I haven’t left you for days now, And I’m becoming amazed how, Your quite affectionate in public, In fact your friend said it made her feel sick, And even though it’s moving forward, There’s just the right amount of awkward, And today you accidentally, Called me baby.
Are you mine? Are you mine? Cos I stay here all the time, Watching telly, Drinking wine, Who’d have known, Who’d have known? When you flash up on my phone, I no longer feel alone,
Let’s just stay, Let’s just stay, I wanna lie in bed all day, We’ll be laughing all the way, You told your friends, They all know, That we exist but we’re taking it slow, Lets just see how we go, Now let’s see how we go.
4. The Jam –
Eton Riffles (1979)
We still have old Etonians running the country, including the Prime Minister
and Mayor of London. Apparently David Cameron is a fan of this song, to Paul
Weller’s dismay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJRmrlkYdsQ
5.Pulp – Cocaine
Jarvis Cocker wrote Cocaine Socialism after being contacted by one of Blair’s
minions during the 1997 general election campaign begging for his support, to
try and make Blair look cool. An angry Jarvis Cocker wrote this in response. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=929BN_zFFR0
Street Preachers – If You Tolerate This Then Your Children Will Be Next (1998)
In 2009, it was
discovered that the song was used on the website of the British National Party as the soundtrack of an article describing “the
violence, hatred, fragmentation and despair” wrought on London by the “great multicultural experiment”. Obviously the
Irony was lost on them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX8szNPgrEs
Turner – Thatcher Fucked The Kids (2006)
Turner actually regrets writing this saying “I regret
writing the song simply because I started getting a lot of people coming to my
shows who didn’t give two shits about my music. I’d just said something they
agreed with. There’s a fair amount of analysis in that song that I would 100% stand
by, but writing that was almost dipping a toe into the world of being a protest
singer. I tried it, I really didn’t like it, and so I did something else
with my life.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1NyWbhCxZE
9. Pulp –
Common People (1995)
Although being one of the most famous songs of the 1990s, Common People never
actually made it to number 1 unfortunately. Should have done though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuTMWgOduFM
10.Plan B – Ill Manors (2012)
Ill Manors was written as a response to 2011’s riots and “society’s failure to
nurture its disadvantaged youth.” The Guardian described Ill Manors
as “the first great mainstream protest song in years.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8GvLKTsTuI
