The Greatest Bastard

Album: My Favourite Faded Fantasy (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The Guardian commented to Rice that the lyrics for this My Favourite Faded Fantasy song are so raw and self-baiting, they make uncomfortable listening. "I find it joyous, really joyous, actually," he replied referring to the album. "Because I've done a lot of work on each of the individual situations, and the songs are almost like constant reminders for me to keep elevating myself out of the hole I might have dug in a particular situation."
