‘So, how did you come up with this latest song Johnny?’
‘Well, I saw that Oasis were really innovating with their latest album, they included a Sitar (A Sitar! On a rock song! Heavens alive, what next?) on one song and on the rest they sound a bit like The Beatles. So I thought I would innovate as well. I thought that singing about women I like was something that hasn’t been attempted much in music, so I went with that.’
I have to take issue with Razorlight – America, mainly for the lyrics, (which at the time were praised for been ‘well political like’) which go ‘all my life, been watchin’ America, all my life, been trouble in America. Really Johnny? You mean to say that vast country populated by 600,000 people of different walks of life doesn’t run smoothly 100% of the time? Move over Chomsky…
Dum de dum. I don’t find it offensive. It just washes over me, through me and out of me like a warm wind. Forgetable.
Dull as shit video though, would havbe loved to have been in the room for the pitch.
