I still remember every single word you said. Or do I?

5 Jan

Ask me to list my top 10 most over-rated bands and I will refuse to answer the question in written form. It’s a safety thing you see; those Proclaimers fans don’t muck around!

But ask me to name my top 10 favourite bands, and it’s all too easy. The end result goes something like this.

1 – Foo Fighters
2 – Garbage
3 – Foo Fighters
4 – Silverchair
5 – Foo Fighters
6 – Nirvana
7 – Pearl Jam
8 – Foo Fighters
9 – Bon Jovi
10 – Icehouse

So yes, I love the Fooeys, particularly the song Monkey Wrench. I find it incredibly useful for psyching up the start of a working day, although I have learned it’s best to scream along with my car windows up.

My favourite part is the shouty bit ™ but I always get let down by not knowing the very last line. So today I set out to finally learn the whole thing. That way, when the band next hits Australia, I can blast along with Dave from start to finish, rather than pretending to cough through those precious few final words. So without further ado, here it is…

One last thing before I quit
I never wanted any more than I could fit into my head
I still remember every single word you said
And all the shit that somehow came along with it
Still there’s one thing that comforts me
Since I was always caged and now I’m free
