Everything Is Everything

Album: The Cross Eyed Rambler (2008)
  • Paul Heaton told the Daily Telegraph July 3, 2008 about this seven-minute rant concerning Britain's descent into low-brow mediocrity: "I just started listing the things that annoyed me, and it wouldn't stop. I think a lot of people feel guilt about how much weight as a country we have put on, we've become flabby and greedy and a bit spoilt. It feels as if we've guzzled on a very fatty cultural diet."
  • This began life as a poem for legendary funk bassist Bootsy Collins.
  • Heaton told Mojo magazine August 2008: "It's very me that song, even down to the fact it lasts that long. I won't let it drop, I'm not one for letting things lie."
