Billy Bragg Lyrics


On Riff Raff, the fledgling Bragg band:
In June (1979) they hopped up another rung on the
legitimacy ladder, when Chiswick put out their first
single. In fact, they put out three separate singles on
the same day as a conceptual set called Suburban
Rock'n'Roll: Riff Raff's Cosmonaut EP (containing "I wanna
be a cosmonaut", "Romford girls", "What's the latest" and
"Sweet as pie"), The Jook EP by The Jook (they were
fancifully tipped as the new Slade) and the Make a Record
EP by The Drug Addix (notable for being Kirsty MacColl's

Review about Billy Bragg songs
The "beauty" of liberal stupidity | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Thatcherites performed by Billy Bragg

This song perfectly exemplifies liberal's entitlement complex as well as their general pettiness and lack of comprehension in economics,such as the money reaped by the government by selling those companies and the jobs created by the privatization that allowed people to generate larger incomes,therefore giving them the ability to follow their own dreams,perhaps of entrepreneurship and,add back to the economy because as it is said no poor man employes workers (nor does her spend much money. An overall ode to socialist witlessness and misconception.

Pictures of Chairman Mao | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Waiting For The Great Leap Forwards performed by Billy Bragg

The Great Leap Forward was the ideal behind Chairman Mao's policies.That was to weed out all the inferior people amongst the rural poor and institute a "one child per family" rule.
Though Mao was seen as a hero to his people the reality was rather different when the Freedom of Information Act revealed the real truth.That Mao was the biggest mass murderer in history with over 150 MILLION dead.
1000s had been used for forced labor on his Irrigation ditches which ended up not working yet at the same time he was a cult on the American college circuits where his Little Black Book was supposedly full of "advice" which was pounced on by hippies

    ------ About the song From Red To Blue performed by Billy Bragg

Odd, that here in America that red and blue have opposite political meanings, then in most (if not all) of the english speaking world. We can't do anything right. We drive on the wrong side of the road, call crisps chips and chips french fries (or god forbid freedom fries, YUCK!), bastarize rugby and call it football and then call football soccer, and not to mention we write long ass compound sentences...like this.

Billy Bragg - love lyricist | Reviewer: Mark Farrall
    ------ About the song The Saturday Boy performed by Billy Bragg

Though Billy has a reputation as a political writer, he is the master of the bittersweet love song. There are several in his early work, capturing an air of yearning and loss, and Saturday Boy is redolent with a sense of disillusionment even in the midst of discovery.

How may of us have some version of ‘dancing in the darkness in the school canteen’, and of the girl we adored but who never really seemed to notice us, or indeed went to ‘those’ parties to which we were not invited?

I think Billy ranks with Morrissey for his love songs, both being peculiarly British in their evocation of melancholy – both boys who never seemed to get the girl?

    ------ About the song Waiting For The Great Leap Forwards performed by Billy Bragg

i love this song. it's so comically true. eg, "in a perfect world we'd all sing in-tune. but this is reality so get some room." or "so join the struggle while you may, the Revolution is just a T-shirt away"
i first heard this song on a television show with dawn french and catherine tate in it, called "wild west". now that i've thoughroughly read the lyrics i can't say that i understand why they had it on there because it doesn't really relate that much to the show. but i like it all the same [=
