Happy Landfill

Gorillaz's most catchy tune. Tututututu-tutu-tutu-tutu. At first, this was going to be the title track of Gorillaz's second album, that was earlier announced to be called 'We Are Happy Landfill'. But from a position as album track, it went to a position as gorillaz.com freebie. Well, not really a freebie, since you need the DVD+CD combo of 'Demon Days' to access the download. It seems we're not the only ones to be surprised of this track's simplicity. Gorillaz have placed four DAT tapes with the riffs of the four instruments on the track: the keys, bass, drums and guitar. Wait, did I forget the typewriter sounds throughout the song? Is a typewriter an instrument anyway? Never mind. Including Damon Albarn's (2D) hoarse vocals on this genuine Gorillaz song, this makes one of Gorillaz's best non-album track.

Lyrics:

The feeling in
Guts to the brain
It means you got it coming and you ain't got a chain
Their only attire
Is a typical vice
But if it gets you well, well you ain't being nice, no
No!

So follow the lives
Till they cut up your eyes
You won't be even seeing if you ain't growing lies
Then bought all the shit
That should never be sold
They put a gun above it and a narrow behold

We are the happy landfill
We are the happy landfill
All right!

The feeling in
Guts to the brain
It means you got it coming and you ain't got chain
Their only attire
Is a typical vice
But if it gets you well, well you ain't being nice, no
No!

So follow the lives
Till they cut up your eyes
You won't be even seeing if you ain't growing lies
Then bought all the shit (we are the happy landfill)
That should never be sold (we are the happy landfill)
They put a gun above it and a narrow behold

All right!
