Song of the Day (Covers): Easy Star All-Stars – Electioneering (feat. Morgan Heritage)

Day 16. This amazing cover of the upbeat, cowbell-propelled Punk track from Radiohead’s landmark album OK Computer, is taken from a tribute album to that very album. Radiodread, Easy Star All-Stars’ follow up to their excellent Pink Floyd tribute Dub Side Of The Moon (I think you can guess which Pink Floyd album that is a tribute to), is a track-by-track cover of OK Computer.

Electioneering is probably my favourite tune on Radiodread, & that is a pleasant surprise because it’s probably the song on OK Computer which I thought would least work as a Reggae tune. Happy to be proved wrong. Like most of the songs, Electioneering features a guest vocalist, Morgan Heritage in this case.

I will stop, see I will stop for nothing
Say the right things when electioneering
I trust I can rely on your vote

When I go forward you go backward
Somewhere we will meet
When I go forward you go backward
Somewhere we will meet

Riot shields, voodoo economics, yes
It’s just business, cattle prods and the I.M.F.
I trust I can rely on your vote

When I go forward you go backward
Somewhere we will meet
When I go forward you go backward
Somewhere we will meet
