Beats of Rage does politics? Nargggh?!!
Dave ‘the Rave’ Cameron has this week launched the Conservative Party manifesto as he bids for a second term as Prime Minister. In a move to woo voters for the looming General Election, Cambot said his aim is to guarantee a “Good Life” for British workers and families. Our immediate thoughts were, what a fucking tune.
‘Let me take you to a place I know you wanna go its a Goood Lifffee….’
If we didn’t already know the Torys were such bastards that might be a vote winner (serious).
This got us thinking at Beats of Rage towers. What other club tracks would make good (or shit) campaign slogans or themes. Think Labour ’97 with ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ but with an actual good track and less Brian Cox.
Soulwax – NY Excuse
This is the excuse that we’re making, we’re making. Is it good enough for what you’re paying?
Boys Noize – Let’s Buy Happiness
Fuck the deficit.
Aphex Twin – I Care Because You Do
Third studio album from Richard D. James. Because he really cares.
Daft Punk – Revolution 909
LCD Soundsystem – I Can Change
Pinch – Get Out of Here
For if you are one of those horrible UKIP lot.
Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx – I’ll Take Care of U
Joey Beltram – (Renewable) Energy Flash
Ramadanman – I Beg You
With all the candidates practically on their knees begging for your vote, Ramadanman’s tune would at least give their campaigns some rare political transparency.
Prodigy – Music for the Jilted Generation
See also, Their Law, and the rest of the album.
Do you know what? Fuck the politicians, let’s have a real Party.
