THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
579-Camelphat & Elderbrook-Cola.
2017-Number 18 single.
Best Bit-At 2.53.To say that 2017 wasn’t a great year for new music would be an understatement,(but maybe in twenty years or so people will look back on that period more generously with the passing of time,) but this Dance track would stand up to scrutiny in any decade.
The music was written by Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala who collaborate together as Camelphat.The lyrics are written and sung by Alexander Kotz,known professionally as Elderbrook.
There is controversy surrounding the lyrics,with some people interpreting the song as being about a female who has had her drink spiked,but Elderbrook says it is about a girl who has too many drinks before going out for the night.
‘Got ready for the night and she’s heading for the lights.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
582-Kenny Rogers and the First Edition.-Ruby Don’t Take Your Love To Town.
1969- Number 2 single.
Best Bit-At 1.56.It was a brave decision to record this song as the Vietnam War was raging.
Rogers would perform the song in a jovial manner and the crowd would often clap and sing along,so to some it was seen as disrespectful to veterans.Rogers said ‘We are there primarily to entertain,if we can entertain by providing thought provoking songs,then that’s all to the good.’Incidentally ‘Ruby’ wasn’t written about the Vietnam War,it was in fact written about the Korean War.
‘You’ve painted up your lips and rolled and curled your tinted hair.’

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
583-Limp Bizkit-Rollin'(Air Raid Vehicle.)
2000-Number 1 single.
Best Bit-At 0.52.Don’t look for any in-depth meaning here,it’s just for fun,after-all the American wrestler ‘The Undertaker’ used the song for his entrance in the WWE.
Lead singer Fred Durst named the band Limp Bizkit because he wanted a name that would repel listeners.’The name is there to turn people’s heads away.A lot of people pick up the disc and go,Limp Bizkit ,they must suck.Those are the people that we don’t even want listening to our music.’
At a cost of $3 million the video was filmed around and on the roof of the World Trade Center. The band received a letter from the World Trade Center the day before the Twin Towers were destroyed,thanking them for featuring the towers in the video.
‘Throw your hands up,ladies and gentlemen,Chocolate Starfish keep on rolling baby.’
