Gorillaz Band. Musical Band, I Mean AtoZ Letter G

The Gorillaz provide another item for the Department of Songs That Don’t Mean What I Claim They Mean.

The name of the song is Clint Eastwood, okay? And one of the lines is, “I got sunshine in a bag,” right? And it samples that twiddly bit from the theme song of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, see? So it’s OBVIOUSLY about eating popcorn and watching a spaghetti Western. YES UHUH IT IS TOO!


GorillazI ain’t happy but, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
I am happy, I’m feeling glad
I got sunshine, in a bag
I’m useless, but not for long
The future is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on
Is coming on

Yeah, ha ha!
Finally someone let me out of my cage
Now, time for me is nothing ’cause I’m counting no age
Now I couldn’t be there
Now you shouldn’t be scared
I’m good at repairs
And I’m under each snare

Bet you didn’t think so I command you to
Panoramic view
Look I’ll make it all manageable
Pick and choose
Sit and lose
All you different crews

Chicks and dudes
Who you think is really kickin’ tunes?

And it goes on. If you want to see/hear the rest of it, here’s a link to it on YouTube. They’re an awesomely awesome group, and I love love love them!

I’m posting at Fatal Foodies today on the subject of ghee, which I also love.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write a scene with popcorn in it.




I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I had never heard of Gorillaz before. Fun video.

    My WIP is set in 1770, so I’m not sure how appropriate a scene would be with popcorn because it wasn’t that common place, but it would be fun to toss together a modern day sequence with some. I should try that.
