Goodbye HMV (Parody song by Mark Read – from A1)

Absolutely loving this parody track from Mark Read – made me smile quite a lot!

As I was watching the news on Monday morning, I found myself getting a little teary eyed over the reports of the last great music store HMV going into administration.

This fateful happening definitely symbolises the end of an era..if in fact they don’t come up with a solution to keep this staple of the once great British High Street alive.

Inspiration struck & instead of tears, lyrics flooded out and for some reason it chose to come in the form of a parody song..

The song is somewhat ‘borrowed’..who am I kidding..Totally Knicked..BUT inspired by my favourite artist of all time Elton John)

So here it is..my tribute to HMV.

Here’s hoping they come up with a positive solution for everyone involved..but the future is certainly looking bleak for the music lovers and record buyers.

Disclaimer:
THIS IS IN NO WAY MEANT TO BE OFFENSIVE OR INSULTING TOWARDS HMV, AND I OF COURSE APPRECIATE THE SENSITIVITY OF THE SUBJECT.
THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE POTENTIALLY LOSING THEIR JOBS IS CERTAINLY NO LAUGHING MATTER, MY BROTHER HAS WORKED AT HMV FOR MANY YEARS NOW SO THE SUBJECT HAS A CLOSER CONNECTION TO ME, OTHER THAN JUST BEING A LIFELONG MUSIC BUYER.
