My Song of the Day:
Tenpole Tudor – “Swords Of A Thousand Men” (1981)
What the lyrics mean to me:
Well, ‘oorah, ‘oorah, ‘oorah, yea!
This is stirring stuff and no mistake; back in the day – the ’80s of course! – so much FAB pop music could be lapped up.
Like so many of the classics of this long-gone and much-missed era, this punk classic exudes FUN, a more agreeable f-word that seems to have been eradicated from a “music” industry now as dull and miserable as the poxy weather in this video!
Look ye here: nothing could be more English than a bunch a’ mates arsin’ about in an English field; rockabillies in chainmail; drummers on tables and flag-wavin’ and ale-swillin’ a-plenty, by Jove!
They’ve probably all had a barrel or much, much more, indeed!
