Thoughts about the new One True Voice single

It's called Shakespeare's Words! It's showing on The Box (no.129)! And!
» They look OK in the video. And it looks like it cost more than the last one (although a budget of tuppence would have been an improvement on last time).
» Pete Waterman still has his finger on the pulse of the music industry. Unfortunately, it's the pulse of 1995.
» The subject matter is very appropriate, as all the kids are into Shakespeare. Aren't they?
» At least they didn't rhyme "In my heart I am a poet" with "and I don't know it" (although the one they used was nearly as bad).
» The song would probably have been 500 times better if Rick Astley had sung it himself.
» Shakespeare will, no doubt, be turning in his grave today
» It's quite good in its own little way, but when you've got Girls Aloud knocking out some of the best pop in years, 'quite good' just doesn't cut it.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
