Meanwhile, on a deadline and so needless to say, distracted by a twitter game a guy called Geoff on twitter triggered…

He started it with:

“Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head,
My shaving razor’s cold,
And it stings.”

A Daydream Believer In The Life

Which I think would work better as “In the life of a daydream believer”…

That made me come back with:

“There’s a lady who’s sure all that glitters is gold and she’s buying a highway to hell” — LedC/DeeC

and “Ground control to Rocket man” — Elton Bowie

and “It’s a godawful small affair to the girl with the broken smile” –Maroon Bowie

He mentioned list songs that could work really well – Nothing Ever Happens, Parklife, We Didn’t Start The Fire, End Of The Workd As We Know It). “They are probably a goldmine for this, the Kevin Bacon of lyric mashups,” he tweeted.

So, I did: “That’s great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, “The King and I”, “The Catcher in the Rye”
We didn’t start the end of the world as we know it” – Billy Rem

and he came back with

“Telephone exchanges click while there’s nobody there,
The Martians could land in the car park and no one would care.
And then you’re in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin’ cars” — Del Ablondie, Nothing Ever Raptures


“It’s oh so quiet
Shh shh
It’s oh so still
Shh shh
You’re all alone
Shh shh
And so peaceful until
Wednesdays, when I get rudely awakened by the dustmen.” — Blürk


“Let them know it’s Christmas time,
Mistletoe and wine…” — Cliff Aid

and I did

“My sugar pie, honey bunch brings all the boys to the yard and they’re like, it’s better than yours”

and he did

“Open the door, get on the floor,
Everybody be cool, this is a robbery!”
*bass riff* — Was Not Dick Dale
(From the Jurassic Fiction soundtrack)


“Mama, it’s raining men,
Put a gun against his head,
Let myself get soaking wet….”

“It’s Raining Bohemians” by, I added, the Weather Queens?

and I alluded to The Move and The Beatles fruity overlap

“Goodbye Blackberry Fields Forever”

and I also did

“Sweets for my sweet sugar sugar for my honey honey” — Archie Drifter


He also suggested the following as a hypothetical thesis: Subject Diversity In Lyrics And The Impact On Mashups: A Small Hairy Ball World Theory Analysis Bacon, Erdős, Osbourne et al

to which I replied: Hermann Goering, MC Escher, JS Bach?

Blürk is the best, he wins!


As a footnote, checked with Geoff if he was happy for me to blog these…his DM response: “Go for it…or better still – Book ’em, Chewie!”
