iTunes Random Thoughts

leave a comment »

In last summer’s provincial electon, the NDP used JXL’s remix of Elvis Presley’s A Little Less Conversation as a campagin theme of sorts. You’ve probably heard it once or twice; the track received a lot of press for putting Elvis on the British Pop Charts at the #1 place again, topping some record set by The Beatles. It was catchy and fun.

But, sadly, the NDP “lost” the election and Nova Scotia found itself with a minority government. I was reminded of this as iTunes played the track for me. It followed up Elvis with a great Oasis track that, in my opinion, would have been a much better theme, especially when you add the dialogue ripped from Guy Ritchie’s Snatch

OASIS: “Fuckin’ In The Bushes.” From “Standing on the Shoulders of Giants.”

We put this festival on, you bastards
With all our love
We worked around a year for you pigs
And you wanna break our walls down, and you wanna destroy us?
Well you go to Hell!

(Kids running around naked, fucking in the bushes)

I love it! Move everybody here
Yes, all are welcome, yes indeed
I love them:
Fun, life, nice, youth, beautiful…I’m all for it

Ah, where have all the militant social democrats gone?
