Donkey Punch Election Day Special – 5th May (obviously)

Writing about web page http://www.radio.warwick.ac.uk

So, the election is over but has anything changed? Apart from a few shifting seats, not really. But did yesterday's Donkey Punch Election Day Special have an impact? No. Could it have done? Perhaps if we were allowed to say anything other than the names of the Parties. Instead, we had to let the music do the talking. Still, it was good fun nonetheless, especially finding tenuous links between certain songs and the election including songs to represent (not endorse obviously) some of the major political parties.

  • Coldplay – Politik
  • Radiohead – You and Whose Army ("mmmmmmmmm…melodic" – Neon)
  • Representing Labour, Kings of Leon as Blair might wake up to a…Red Morning Light!
  • Maximo Park – Graffiti
  • Representing the Green Party, Pulp with Trees
  • Kate Bush – Cloudbusting (featured album Hounds of Love)
  • Rolling Stones because if Blair had lost he might have gone home to his old house and seen his red door and want to…Paint it Black to be like number 10, you see?
  • Flaming Lips – First Past the Post (aka Race for the Prize)
  • Representing Lib Dem, The Beatles as Kennedy would not want to live at number 10 if he had won, he'd want to live in a…Yellow Submarine!
  • The Cure – Push
  • Randy Newman – Political Science

The News, guess what it was about?

  • Belle & Sebastian – Legal Man because Blair used to be one
  • Soulwax – E Talking (Erol Alkan remix). About msn messenger apparently…!
  • Representing the BNP, Refugees by The Tears!
  • Kate Bush – Running up that Hill (featured album Hounds of Love)
  • Public Enemy – Fight the Power
  • Despite all their conflicting policies the basic sentiment of all political candidates is…I Could be so Good for You by Dennis Waterman
  • We could have sworn the election would go…Down to the Wire by Neil Young
  • Bob Dylan – Political World
  • What all political candidates are really saying…I Can Only Disappoint U by Mansun
  • Gerry Rafferty – Baker Street (tune!)
  • Representing the Tories…Bluetonic by The Bluetones (my appologies to The Bluetones)

So there we have it. Next week Donkey Punch will be back to normal but don't forget that also coming up this term is our second cover-versions special and, of course, the Brian Blessed Shouty Shouty Special! Stay tuned every Thursday at 1pm.

  3. Neon

    Either:

    i) because the sheer unadulertated bliss of the show renders people speechless.

    or

    ii) because they can't be arsed.

    I'm plumpling for i), but then I'm easy to delude.
