Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…
Last weekend two JARVIS COCKER fans, driven by their post-election depression, started a Facebook campaign to encourage other fans to stream and download Cocker‘s 2006 solo single ‘RUNNING THE WORLD‘ so that it could hit the top spot of the UK Singles Chart on Xmas Day. The protest song has become an anthem for all those who are sad, mad and frustrated with the result of last week’s UK election because of the track’s lyrics attacking political leaders:
“If you thought things had changed / Friend, you’d better think again /
Bluntly put, in the fewest of words: / Cunts are still ruling the world.”
Jarvis Cocker said he loved the initiative and campaign and immediately announced that he would be donating all proceeds from the single to the Homeless Charity Shelter.
Here’s a recent live version of ‘Running The World‘…
And here’s the original recording (full lyrics clip)
