A few people have asked for this as an mp3. Go on then, help yourself:
The Daily Mail Song
And if you haven’t seen the vid, WHERE YOU BEEN?! It’s here:
See you anon.
I love it. I love it very much. 🙂 Thank you for made my day. C.
just brilliant!! had a grim grim day and your video made me laugh out loud – thnak you. amy
Oh genius video, I also really loved your *taxing* vid too
This is priceless! Have forwarded it on to all friends and family…required viewing!
Now that is Genius!
Well, that makes me want to buy it again, thanks! It’s good fun, you don’t take it seriously, do you?
… it’s absolutely true because I read it in The Daily Mail… song stuck in head… thanks! 🙂
Super, brilliant, you know need to make it number one. bring attention to the dull climate that Britain as become.
The nice thing is that all you sing about is true! B x
Fine work! Many thanks!
Great video. Very funny, but I as a foreigner doubt those headlines can be true. Who would read that??
Genius. Love the Dylanesque video aswell.
Am directing all virtual friends your way.
Are these all real headlines??
I love it, gave me a right Belly Laugh,
A work of genius dear boy. ‘Tis spreading like wild fire around facebook as we speak. Good work that man.
[…] and Dan sing a little ditty about Britain’s favorite “middle-market” tabloid, the Daily […]
I was hoping so much that this would be downloadable! Cheers Dan(s), this is now the theme song to my research proposal ^_^
i was just downloading this song, after watching the vid on tabloid watch, and i thought, it would be a shame to download it without thanking you for singing it and saying that you’re doing very well as a double act. so thanks for writing and singing this.
Oh I’m so happy my facebook friend posted a link to this! Can’t wait to watch all the other videos. Dan, are you two related?
[…] THEN I followed a link from Bishop Alan to Dan and Dan, listened to what has to be the song of the year, and laughed until I cried. Can’t figure out […]
Spot on and a wonderful return to the idea of satire tells the truth.
Brilliant, made my day.
You should sell it as a ringtone!
Dan and Dan. May I be so bold as to suggest a new title that for this really clever song of yours:
Subeditorial Headline Blues.
Just got this posted at I-AM-BORED for you chap.
Hope you don’t mind. 😉
You may be so bold, and I agree that is indeed very clever. But probably too late for this one… I might put it in the sidebar. Haha!
No, just a strong resemblance (can’t see it myself). We were doomed to collaborate artistically.
No probs, any time 🙂
You’d be surprised.
Is there any chance of seeing copies of your mock-up front pages? It seems there’s other little gems hiding in the minor headlines as well but they flash by so quickly. Love your videos. Thank you for sharing with the world.
Cracking stuff, very well observed. I recently did a spoof piece on the just-as-bad Daily Express, if anyone wants a look: http://www.chrisbardell.com/?p=1414
Love it! Totally awesome 🙂
Dan, could you thank Dan for his excellent song. Thanks.
There is indeed. ‘Twould be a shame to let them go to waste. We’re currently away at the moment though so expect an update when we’re back in a few weeks…
Brilliant! Just one question, which one of you will answer the door when Lord “The Viscount” Rothermere comes a knockin’? 😉
LOVED IT!! absolutely loved it!!
Where can I get a copy of those papers??
Have you got a facebook group? (I hate facebook but I’d join that one!)
Absolutely brilliant. My mother should be a Daily Mail sponsor. This has now been entered into my phone Mp3 library and I have asked my friend to teach me guitar surely so I can learn it and play it at our local jam night. Subject to you agreeing of course. Thank you for making me laugh out loud. fantastic. Cher x
I watched this interesting performance under the impression that it was satirical.
Then I saw this:
it is true
Cheers, we’re glad. There is a facebook group my mate set up years ago, but it needs better admin – keep meaning to do it properly, and will do soon. Stay tuned.
Good luck playing it – the chords are easy, but my guitar was very out of tune, so you may find it hard playing along to the actual vid. But the chords are like G, D, C. That’s it I think.
Oh jesus no. Unbelievable. Thanks for sharing that…
Hey, as a Guardian reading lefty I’m appalled at my mother’s daily purchase of the Daily Mail. Its a shocking bad “news” paper. I thought this song might make her see the light but she failed to grasp the irony in her delight. Why, some might ask, does it matter if the daily mail exists? Well it matters because people are sheep and the Daily Mail is a bad shepherd.
More! more! awesomely sad but oh so true…
I would pay to see you play that at Glastonbury.
Great song! I organise the Musical Comedy Awards, a competition to promote the best emerging musical comedians in the UK! We actually just had the final at the end of March at the New Players Theatre and were Guardian Pick of the Week and Time Out Critics Choice. Would love to invite you to play at a show in the future if you were ever up for it! And if you ever wanted to upload some of your songs to the site http://www.musicalcomedy.co.uk that would be great too!
Absolutely fantastic. I’ve watched it ten times and I’m still laughing.
