Video for Generator by The Holloways via YouTube
The Blonde has got me into the new album by The Holloways - So This Is Great Britain? So far I'm utterly hooked on the bouncy bouncy ska sound of Generator, the new single. I love that whilst it's a cheerful melody which makes me dance, the lyrics aren't 100% chirpy:
"I don't live in poverty
I''ve got a little bit of money and I've got a healthy body
I'm not going to let stuff get me upset
And I won't let all the little things get me depressed.
When I was a young boy, I got a stereo
And I taped all the songs straight off the radio.
The sounds that the bands made, and the melodies
Is all I need to make me feel free.
Sometimes you get so low, you don't know why
Or a little unsettled inside
May I remind you that you don't live in poverty?
You've got your youth, and you've got food in your belly.
I can get a record player, and a generator
Generate the music that makes you feel better."
