"Globe Alone" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Who maddest one on the M1
Who hasn't stopped sucking his thumb
Who very straight and never grins
Who cares what car he's driving in

He is because he saw it on a commercial break
And if he doesn't get what
He wants then he'll get a headache
Because he needs it, wants it, almost loves it
He's here on his own, on globe alone

Who joined health club to glisten
Into hi-fi precision
Whose mobile phone gives him the bone
Who very keen on Sharon Stone

Who only eats at the new brasserie
Who only ever gets merry
Who wouldn't be seen at bedtime
Without putting Calvin Kleins on

    General CommentThe song is poking fun at people who buy into all the hip, cool fads out there and strive to maintain a perfect image, but lose their individuality in the process.

    For some reason, this song reminds me of Charmless Man.

    General CommentI am that man in the song.lol

    We all are sometimes like that..

    "And if he doesn't get what he wants then he'll get a headache"

    the meaning is almost the same as this one ( Society by Eddie V.)

    "When you want more than you have
    you think you need
    and when you think more than you want
    your thoughts begin to bleed"


    People never get to be contented, always want new things in his life.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs for jumping around when I'm alone in the room.

    On the one hand it makes me feel glad that I'm (hopefully) not the guy from the song, spending his life taking care only to LOOK right, with what's "right" being derived from commercials, and even being "keen on Sharon Stone" just because she's "in" at the moment. Pay attention to the "ALMOST loves it" part!

    On the other hand it makes me furious to think of rich sons that get "mad on M1" endangering other people's lives, and knowing that their dad will "come and stop it all" (ok, I know it's from another song) if the things get messy.
