Tripping Along The Ledge



You’ve probably seen it before but, what the hell, it’s worth watching again. Issues satirises Marvin Gaye’s What’s Goin’ On album pretty much in its entirety – which in itself is kinda funny, because that album was recorded 39 years ago and this is (ostensibly at least) a song about current issues. The ironing, needless to say, is delicious.

    Love this song. Didn’t know it was based on a Marvin Gaye album though.

    Loved the first series of their show. Anyone know if the second is any good? ( haven’t seen it yet but considering downloading it)

  4. Eoin Says:

    @ DD – well that’s just my interpretation, but it is reminiscent of several songs on that album – What’s Happening Brother, Inner City Blues, Mercy Mercy Me etc.

  5. Eoin Says:

    @ Han Shan – sorry haven’t seen it either. Thought the first series was a little hit and miss.
