Adam & Joe used to have a great segment on their radio show called ‘Popropriation’ which involved listeners giving songs that they had appropriated and adapted to fit their everyday life or a particular situation.
I did this twice today without thinking about it. I was making a fine lunch of B.L.T and chips and started singing to the tune of Menace’s punk classic “G. L. C.” :
Aaaaaaaand some chips, chips, chips, chips, chips, chips” ! !
…and then later when picking some fancy tea (well, fancy for me!) from a variety pack my Grandma sent us for Christmas, I popropriated 80s hardcore legends Bad Brains classic “Sailin’ On” when Mrs Panther asked what tea I wanted…
“I want Ceylon…
ceylon, ceylon, ceylon” !!
ahhh….I know, I know, pretty poor, but it keeps me amused !
Now, I’m sure I’m not the only ‘Spiller who does this…..so let’s have your recent or regular POPROPRIATIONS !
