The most dangerous song in England

Discussion in 'Films, Music and All Things Artsy' started by AngloSaxonOfficial, Aug 15, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 'This is England' is considered by the powers that be the most dangerous song in England. Why....because in times of deceipt the truth is the most dangerous thing of all.

    I record under the name Anglo Saxon. All the songs have a patriotic theme. One song 'When Daddy comes marching home' is used for the Armed Forces, Support British Troops and many other myspace profiles and websites.

    To all currently serving good luck and keep safe.

  2. I notice your song 'When Daddy comes marching home' contains the lines:

    When Johnny comes marching home again Hurrah Hurrah
    When Johnny comes marching home again Hurrah Hurrah
    The Marines,the Paras’ and the Highland Guards
    The Wales Brigade and the Royal Hussars
    The Union Jack can rise again
    And fly half mast no more.

    Could you tell us a little about "the Highland Guards"? Did you serve with them, by any chance?
     
  3. Well spotted.

    I know it is not technically correct, I did do some research and 'Scots Guards' or Highland Regiment didn't sound right. The essence of the verse was to represent the components of the UK.

    But with all the cutbacks and amalgamating regiments who knows.

    You must admit it sounds well in the song.

    Cheers Gary
     
  4. You could try the following - I hope this scans:

    When Johnny comes marching home again Hurrah Hurrah
    When Johnny comes marching home again Hurrah Hurrah
    Royal Marines, the Paras, the Brigade of Guards
    A bunch of crabs and the Royal Hussars
    The Union Jack can rise again
    And fly half mast no more.

    I am willing to accept that the Royal Navy is adequately represented by the mention of the RMs.
     
  5. i like, 6/10 :D
     
  6. I have got a better idea why don't I come and do a gig at your barracks/base and anyone who wants to sing their own verses can. Best one wins a gallon.
     
  7. Well, the problem comes in your website, which says:

    You see the problem? You clearly don't know the difference between imply and infer. It may just be because you're not that bright, but, equally, it could be because you are actually racist in which case, best to sling your hook.

    Are you? Oh, and have you got anything whatever to do with the Army, or are you just advertising?

  8. I didnt want to be the first person critical of this.

    I too, just think you are touting for trade.

    I am however prepared to be proved wrong.
     
  9. I don't profess to be bright, definitely not racist, and certainly not in it for profit. Any proceeds will go to worthy causes. But only got a four figure debt at the moment.

    Thanks for interest
     
  10. Sorry to disappoint you, but I've just checked on ask.co.uk, and the most dangerous song in England is 'London Calling' by The Clash, or alternatively 'Love Gets Dangerous' by Billy Bragg.
     
  11. Mind you.

    We've got live music in the mess in Oct.

    I am sure I can fit you in for a hours warm up slot before the main event.
     
  12. This right wing Saxondale wannabe nonsense would not look out of place on the BNP website.
     

  13. Well, the formatting looks similar doesn't it?


    Are right wing, Gary?
     
  14. I've not bothered with your link mate*.

    This Is England - Joe Strummer, B Rhodes, Cut The Crap, 1985.

    The Clash beat you to it.


    *Incase it's too dangerous.
     
  15. I also notice that you state on your website: “Anglo Saxon intends to write, record and release songs with a distinctly patriotic feel and celebration of British culture.” However, your song entitled “This thing called rock and roll” seems rather to celebrate an American cultural phenomenon. I have therefore taken the liberty of amending the lyrics slightly to help you get your point across better:

    Let me tell you a story, about morris dancing
    It gave me a direction to recognise my soul
    I needed to shout from the top about the way I feel
    I was looking for something I found morris dancing

    This thing called morris dancing X 4

    You turn on the TV… and then the radio
    All the news is bad news, everywhere I go
    With endless frustration with all that’s gone before
    I’d just suffer in silence, well not any more

    This thing called morris dancing X 4

    Gutair [sic] Solo

    Let me tell you a story, about morris dancing
    It gave me a direction to recognise my soul
    I needed to shout from the topabout the way I feel
    I was looking for something I found morris dancing

    Last Chorus
