Yeah, I think you'll find that Flex and I are the only ones who will not give you shit for this.
Really liked it, up until the king of the castle shite at the end, otherwise nice number.
I don't know, man...these lyrics have always made me cringe.
I'll give you the aforementioned castle and the skirt bit.
Oh, I thought we were talking about the band in general as opposed to just this song.
I only know this one to be honest, like I said came on Songpop earlier and thought I recognised it, listened and enjoyed it. Any you recommend?

Came up on Songpop (possibly the only person who still plays it) earlier, feel as though I shouldn't like it.

But I sure do.

That's the most cringy part.

Well, as I say, they are pretty unpopular around here...if you have sympathy with the reasons for that, it might be hard to recommend anything, but if I was introducing someone, I'd probably make a comp with the following tracks:

Warehouse
Dancing Nancies
Typical Situation
Two Step
#41
Drive In Drive Out
Lie In Our Graves
The Stone
Crush
The Dreaming Tree
Pig
Grey Street
Captain

I like this band for musicianship, not lyrics, so don't take this list as an endorsement of whatever the songs are about!

Matey can get on board with some DMB singles.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

You're too late, it's already spreading. I wonder if Heston likes DMB...

The music is shitty enough, but it's not Limey enough. He's already been marked for eradication for other crimes, tho.

It doesn't have enough pop edge for him to get into either. I would suspect he's not a fan.
