"Presidential Suite" as written by Huw Bunford, Cian Ciaran, Dafydd Ieuan, Guto Pryce and Gruff Rhys....
Monica and naughty Billy
Got together something silly now
Holy wars out of lusty minutes
Another Cuban cigar crisis

Honestly!
Do we need to know if he really came inside her mouth?
How will all this affect me
Now and later?

You know that we belong
In a presidential suite
Armed guards in the street
Waving back at crowds who greet

And when I look over
Over my shoulder
I can't see my past
It seems so far away

Found an icon that gave him a hard one
Little Boris just can't help himself
Got so hot in the decadent nineties
Pass another vodka dear

We can dance
'Til the early hours of the morning catches up
Then we'll return to business
If there's any of it left

You know that we belong
In a presidential suite
Armed guards in the street
Waving back at crowds who greet

And when I look over
Over my shoulder
I can't see my past
It seems so far away

What makes you think that
We belong in a presidential suite
Armed guards in the street
Waving back at crowds who greet
Yes indeed

You know that when we met
There were fireworks in the sky
Sparkling like dragonflies
Spelling "All bad folk must die"

And when I look over
Over my shoulder
I can't see my past
It seems so far away
It seems so far away
Far away

    General CommentNo comments! Wow!

    Anyways this song is a rather traditional pop song musically, but lyrically it is a very unique love ballad. The narrator (male) is saying that his love of this woman (the "we" references them as a couple) is great enough to deserve a presidential suite.

    The only interesting thing is the beginning, which references the sex scandal of Monica Lewinsky and U.S. President Bill Clinton. It is a very funny anecdotal reference, and I'm not sure how it fits with the song but I love it nonetheless.

    General Comment"It's about Boris Yeltzin and Bill Clinton and was written during the Monica Lewinsky affair, but I didn't want to release it at the time. It's a reflective look back at the decadent nineties. I suppose it's about what kind of super ego makes someone want to be president. It's a ballad with another top Sean O'Hagan string arrangement. I think it's the most complete song I've ever written in a conventional way, in terms of chord structures and lyrics and narrative.

    "4K did an amazing looking film that cost five grand. It looks like a Terry Gilliam-style cold war epic. I keep expecting a big foot to come down and destroy everything! The central character is an old jet that flies around the United States and Russia and the obstacles that get in its way."
