What it is about
Mixing politics with parties: the two don't go together.
How it was written
A tale of two parts. The key cycles between A and D and the tempo of the political party part is half that of the frenetic 220bpm party part.
This would make a great video: the ideal antidote to elections.
0:00 A sober start. Cue images of the UK Houses of Parliament, US Congress and Russia's Kremlin.
0:08 (cue abrupt change of tempo) Joes Sleazy Nightclub where there is a party going on full tilt.
0:34 (cue another abrupt change of tempo) The politicians arrive and take over the stage.
1:01 (cue another abrupt change) The punters take the stage back and start singing themselves.
1:18 (cue etc etc) The chair sings the party manifesto to a throbbing country rock riff.
1:44 It goes back and forth like this for a while. Tempers fray, fists fly, things degenerate.
2:28 The president asks the Secret Service aide, who is holding the Emergency Satchel, for more alcohol, but inadvertently presses the button marked "Nuclear Bomb" instead of the one marked "Root Beer".
2:50 THE END.
