I'm Not With The Hundred Crowd I'm With Ninety-Nine
Some time ago I posted Big Audio Dynamite's Other 99, a song about not being the best, not being at the top of the pile, sometimes settling for five out of ten. This philosophy is completely against current educational thinking and aspirational politics but perfectly in chime with the Occupy Movement and all that stuff about the 99% (us) versus the 1% (bankers etc). It's a really good BAD song. This is the 12" Extended Version- the first half is the normal song. Then there's a lovely four minutes of keyboards and guitars, Mick and co making good use of those extra inches.
