Beautiful South Golddiggas Headnodders And Pholk Songs Full Album 12




The Beautiful South was a British pop rock band that formed in 1988 and disbanded in 2007. They were known for their witty and sarcastic lyrics, catchy melodies, and diverse musical influences. The band had several hit singles and albums, including Carry On Up the Charts, which was the best-selling album of 1994 in the UK.


One of their most interesting and creative albums was Golddiggas, Headnodders and Pholk Songs, released in 2004. This album was a collection of cover versions of songs by various artists, ranging from ABBA to The Ramones. The band put their own spin on these songs, changing the lyrics, style, and mood to suit their own vision. The result was a diverse and eclectic album that showcased the band's versatility and humor.

The album consisted of 12 tracks, each with a different genre and theme. Here is a brief overview of each song:



  • You're the One That I Want: A cover of the famous song from the musical Grease, sung by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. The Beautiful South turned this upbeat and romantic song into a dark and cynical duet, with lyrics such as "You're the one that I want / You are the one I despise" and "You better shape up / 'Cause I need a drink".



  • Livin' Thing: A cover of the classic rock song by Electric Light Orchestra. The Beautiful South gave this song a country twist, with banjo, harmonica, and fiddle. The lyrics were also changed to reflect the band's anti-war stance, with references to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay.



  • This Will Be Our Year: A cover of the optimistic pop song by The Zombies. The Beautiful South kept the original lyrics, but added a sarcastic tone and a gloomy piano arrangement. The song became a ironic commentary on the state of the world in 2004, with lines such as "The warmth of your love / Is like the warmth of the sun / And this will be our year / Took a long time to come".



  • Ciao!: A cover of the indie pop song by Lush, featuring Jarvis Cocker of Pulp. The Beautiful South turned this song into a bossa nova number, with smooth vocals and guitar. The lyrics were also altered to make fun of celebrity culture and tabloid gossip, with references to Madonna, Britney Spears, and Michael Jackson.



  • Valentine: A cover of the soulful ballad by Willie Nelson. The Beautiful South kept the original lyrics, but changed the music to a reggae beat. The song became a cheerful and upbeat ode to love, with a catchy chorus and horns.



  • Don't Fear the Reaper: A cover of the iconic rock song by Blue Öyster Cult. The Beautiful South gave this song a folk rock treatment, with acoustic guitar, mandolin, and violin. The lyrics were also modified to make fun of death and religion, with lines such as "Don't fear the reaper / He's a lovely guy" and "All our times have come / Here but now they're gone / Seasons don't fear the reaper / Nor do the wind, the sun or the Pope".



  • This Old Skin: A cover of the indie rock song by The Heppelbaums. The Beautiful South turned this song into a soulful and emotional ballad, with piano, strings, and gospel choir. The lyrics were also changed to reflect the band's experience of aging and nostalgia, with references to their past songs and albums.



  • Don't Stop Moving: A cover of the disco song by S Club 7. The Beautiful South gave this song a rockabilly twist, with electric guitar, drums, and saxophone. The lyrics were also altered to mock the shallow and superficial lifestyle of pop stars, with lines such as "Don't stop moving to that funky funky beat / Don't stop grooving 'cause you're sounding like a sheep" and "Don't stop moving to that boogaloo sound / Don't stop grooving 'cause you're going round and round".



  • Till I Can't Take It Anymore: A cover of the soul song by Ben E. King. The Beautiful South kept the original lyrics, but changed the music to a punk rock style, with distorted guitar, bass, and drums. The song became a loud and angry rant, with vocals that sounded like shouting and screaming.



  • Rebel Prince: A cover of the cabaret song by Rufus Wainwright. The Beautiful South gave this song a jazz swing feel, with piano, trumpet, and clarinet. The lyrics were also modified to make fun of the royal family and their scandals, with references to Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, and Princess Diana.



  • Blitzkrieg Bop: A cover of the punk rock anthem by The Ramones. The Beautiful South turned this song into a polka number, with accordion, tuba, and clarinet. The lyrics were also changed to make fun of the Nazi regime and their atrocities, with lines such as "Hey ho, let's go / Shoot them in the back now" and "They're piling in the back seat / They're generating steam heat / Pulsating to the back beat / The Blitzkrieg Bop".



  • I'm Stone in Love With You: A cover of the smooth R&B song by The Stylistics. The Beautiful South kept the original lyrics, but changed the music to a heavy metal style, with electric guitar, bass, and drums. The song became a loud and distorted declaration of love, with vocals that sounded like growling and roaring.




Golddiggas, Headnodders and Pholk Songs was a unique and creative album that demonstrated the band's talent and humor.
