The Show: Our hearts are full of regret and cholesterol…

Today’s show is woven between readings of the “WAP” lyrics by Ben Shapiro. We’ve not been as moved by a monologue since we first heard Richard Burton reciting Dylan Thomas.

As if that wasn’t dramatic enough, we chose to back Mr Shapiro’s oration with the latest offering from RZA – a brand new US ice cream truck jingle, written to replace the existing “well-known and problematic tune “Turkey in the Straw”.”

And on with the show…

The Show: If I saw you on the street…

Listen hard to today’s show and you’ll catch a sly throwback to Alvvays’ “Dreams Tonite” in the Saint Jude track.

We’d love to say there’s a rich history of artists deliberately referencing someone else’s lyrics within their own original song. Unfortunately the only other one we can think of is “Hello” by Oasis using a line or two from Gary Glitter and… well… you know… maybe cutting another musician in on your massive royalty cheque is not always the best idea.

The Show: “Must We Fling This Filth At Our Pop Kids” 2

We first asked this question back in April 2017 and the answer remains the same. Yes.

So have a listen to back-to-back bawdy lyrics from Cupcakke and Dry Cleaning. We wanted to follow those two artists with a new tune from Katie Vick but The Joint is unable to (play songs containing the word) cum three times in a row.
