#4 Reverend And The Makers – Heavyweight Champion of the World


«I could’ve been a someone«

Cuándo el éxito de los Arctic Monkeys empezaba, había dos bandas que abrían varios de sus conciertos y llamaban la atención. Milburn y Reverend And The Makers.  De Milburn ya sabemos la historia, que ha seguido los pasos de los AM pero con menos éxito.  En cambio, Jon McClure, el Reverendo, decidió esperar, y hacer su propio sonido, definirlo y no lanzar nada hasta estar satisfecho. Le tomo un poco de tiempo, pero los esfuerzos dieron frutos.  Llegó con esta canción y paso casi 4 meses en el top 40.  Se te mete en los oídos y se te queda debajo de la piel.  Por eso es la #4 en esta lista.

Reverend And The Makers – Heavyweight Champion of the World

And now
That she’s older
As the embers of romance
Fade to mortgages and leccy bills
Been comfortable and that
Nobody told her
That she’d ever reach the stage
Where her husband bored her
Or she lied about her age

He’s compromising
At least he’s got a job for life
Get born, get school, get job, get car
Pay tax and find a wife
And on that note
The end can’t come too soon
If you’re not living on the edge
You take up too much room

I could’ve been a contender
I could’ve been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Put me in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could’ve been The Heavyweight Champion of the World

At school he used to dream about
Being Bruce Lee
But the need for chops on the Manor top
Aint all that great you see
And so he gave up
On his black belt and first Dan
As near as he got to China
Was a week in Camber sands

I could’ve been a contender
I could’ve been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Put me in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could’ve been The Heavyweight Champion of the World

I could’ve been a contender
I could’ve been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Put me in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could’ve been The Heavyweight Champion of the World

It’s boring it’s boring
It might put you to sleep
As the same old routine repeating week after week
And you work harder, work harder
You’re told that you must
And you must earn a living
You must earn a crust

To be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else
Be like everybody else
Just be like everybody else

I could’ve been a contender
I could’ve been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Put me in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could’ve been The Heavyweight Champion of the World

I could’ve been a contender
I could’ve been a someone
Caught up in the rat race
And feeling like a no-one
Put me in the papers
With the money and the girls
I could’ve been The Heavyweight Champion of the World
