...funky but neat. A thrown-together (2 hours from soup to nuts) attempt to reflect the wretched cheesiness of the world John Cooper Clarke depicts in this one. I guess I could have added a little more Gorgonzola, but, eeeeuuw, it's high enough....even for Mr Cavendish and the enigmatic Elizabeth...

I just realised I missed a verse out (the "stereo headphones" one). Does it matter?

It's like Chris DeBurgh rapping over Sade with the Last Poets in the background. Love it.

Yeah, this is just about perfect for the material, I think. A bit sleazy, a bit cheesy, a bit of blase cynicism.

...and MajorDundee knocks one out of the park. Good job, comrade, you've already set the bar for this challenge.

Thanks folks! I think it's a bit of a stretch to describe this as knocking things out of the park, but it'll hopefully get the ball rolling pour encourager le autres as it were (an out-of-context quote if ever there was one). Bit of a cheat really - not singing but kind of rapping. I'm still going to take a shot at "Hire Car" or similar - with a proper vocal this time...

pour encourager les autres, to be precise
