    General CommentI like the subtitle of this song; "Legislated nostalgia: to force a body of people to have memories they do not actually possess." Think about that when you see some TV commercial for the music of a specific decade boasting about what "great times" those were, when you don't remember them being so good.

    General Comment"You meet an old soldier and talk of the past
    He fought for us in two world wars
    And says the England he knew is no more"

    I've always found these lines a bit heartbreaking (in the middle of a pretty chirpy number). We all have problems with the way the Greatest Generation was treated as they grew elderly.

    General CommentProbably the greatest example of social satire in a song since Ray Davies. Damon was in the zone during the entire "Modern Life is Rubbish" album. He should of carried on writing these kind of songs instead of those awful social-comment character comedies that he began to write on Parklife and which reached it's peak on The Great Escape (at best a very average record).

    The Great Escape album was... Well, very bad. Lol. Just another attempt at a 'better' Parklife.

    But this song is about Sunday life and traditions in England.
