Hey everyone, and welcome to songs gone wrong, where we, along with you, the fans, decide if these hit songs got it right or did those songs go wrong? I am one of your host, drew Zachman, and joining me on a very special occasion are are good friends from the dig me out podcast. We have tim and Jay. Tim, how are you doing today, sir? Well, how are you doing? All Right? And Jay, how are you? I'm covid free. That's that's like the country music awards. I'm like the country music awards. That is that is great news. That is great news. I'm going to live another day. That's good. Oh, rascal flats. Anyway, so we are on leg two of our crossover we I was just over on the dig me out podcast. We talked about boggy depot, the album from Jerry Cantrell, and today we have you guys on and we are talking about tub thumping by Chumbawamba. But before we dig in, Tim, why don't you tell us a little bit about the dig me out podcast? Sure will. Dig Me out is a podcast all about the S, specifically s alternative in the hard rock that has gone overlooked or underappreciated and we talked about a record each week or we talk we have a round table discussion or an interview with various folks that are relevant to the decade. And it's been going on for ten years and they haven't kicked us off the air yet. So we're just going to keep going until somebody stops us. I'm doing air quotes around the word they exactly. The man hasn't kicked as stopped as yet. Nice. Yeah, I've I've been listened to you guys for a couple years now. I was late to the podcasting game, but one of the first things I wound up searching for was like s music, and yours is one of the first ones that came up and I've been listening ever since. So if you guys haven't already checked them out, I would highly recommend listening to the dig me out podcast. Great stuff and had a blast talking about the Jerry Cantrell album. But others. How many you'R over? What? Five hundred episodes, I think right. Yeah, well, when you toss in the we also do special s episodes for a patreon community. So when you toss those and we're about five hundred and twenty episodes at this point. Yeah, quite, quite, every week, log there. Yeah, Jay and I have been been getting together once a week, every week for ten years. Virtually. Can't stop us.

That's awesome. We show up and hit record. That's all. We do. Not Be good, but we're consistent. Yeah, Hey, showing up a hang record is half the battle, exactly. But today we are not talking about a song that is that fell between the cracks. This song was plastered all over the radio, all over, all over everything that is in your eyes, your hair. It was everywhere. But we are talking about tub thumping from the group Chumbawamba, off their album TUB thumper, which came out in one thousand nine hundred and ninety seven and top thumper. In case you guys don't know, it's their eighth studio album. Their eighth studio album. Wow, I didn't note. I found that to be pretty interesting. They had eight out. This is their eighth album. But the group, all the members, contribute to writing of this song. But Tim, let me start with you. One of the things we like to ask is what are your memories of this song? So why don't you tell us your memories of Tub Thumping? Well, I remember, obviously, the the single getting played both on MTV and then and then radio and then, oddly enough, the thing that I associate with this band, besides the song, is that they encourage their fans who couldn't afford to buy the record to steal it from record store chains, not indie record late stores, but like virgin records and HMV is a big red store in the UK, and those recordsters actually pulled the records from the shelves and put it behind the counter so the people couldn't steal it, because they were sort of like an anarchist collective, like they all their records before this are very political and so they had this you know socialist bent of a lot of their material, and so I just thought that was hilarious that they were on, you know whatever, the British MTV and like yeah, I go steal our record, and this was their major label debut. Yeah, yeah, these guys were and it's interesting, right, when you go back into their their backlog, right, like I said, they this is their eighth album, blaw. Their other stuff was very, you know political, like you said, and definitely had like some like deep meetings and when you get to this song it's like what but yeah, but Jay, how about you? What are your memories of this song? Yeah, I just remember it being sort of everywhere for about a year. I remember the video, I remember you know it. It's a type of song you can play on pop radio, you played on rock radio. It kind of been genres and kind of fits in everywhere. So you hear it when you go into restaurants, you hear it when you're shopping. You like, you heard in commercials, like it is just one of those songs that it fits every anywhere you want to put it. So that that was my memory, just it popping out not really sounding like anything else at the time and being instantly recognizable and memorable. Yeah, yeah, when this? So this came out in ninety seven, so I was seventeen at that time.

I feel like, had I been twenty one and of age to go and Bibe in some adult beverages, I feel like this would have been one of those songs when, when you're out of the bar, you just hear it come on, or comes on like the the Juke box or something like that, or the radio overhead, and you just probably start drinking even more. So it's probably it's probably a good thing I was seventeen when this came out, because right it's could have been a problem. But I when this came out, I was not necessarily a big fan of it because at that time I was listening to heavier stuff, like I was, for whatever reason, really big in the fear factory, and at that time, ninety seven, you had limbiscus. Three Dollar Bill Y'all came out and listen, guys, I've done some shit in my life. I'm not necessarily proud of listening to limb biscuit for about a good three or four years stretch. It's one of those things. I'm not but what we found somebody that can come on our new metalow round table. Oh, I'm trust me, I'm well versed on that, much to my chagrin now. But back to top thumping. Yeah, I don't I wasn't a fan of this back then when it came out. But Yeah, you could not escape this song. Yeah, it had a you know, that big I don't know, it's almost like a gang vocal style. You know, the I get knocked down just has this almost anthem kind of feel to it. It just reminded me of a lot of like, I don't know, it almost like an arena rock. It's like a it's like a beer drinking public song, add hen arena rock value. So there were so something about that that kind of connected with me of just being like instantly identifiable and also like relatable in that way for me. So I probably gave it a little bit more listen that I normally would have a song that was this big. Yeah, yeah, and our other co host, Dave, who's on the oble to do it, say he's a little under the weather, but one of the things that he kind of always talks about with you know, some of these hit songs is like you have that chant right like and and this is how we do it. From Montel Jordan, you have kind of like that group singing. This is how we do it, and that's kind of one of those. This definitely falls in that category. So and they hit you right away. I mean there's a little bit of a small intro and then it's like boom, there it is. Oh, yeah, yeah, and that's you know, our podcast we talked about that quite a bit, like when you come on a record, when you come across the song, where it's like they know what the hook is and they put it right up front. It just it's a whole different ball game in terms of like getting your tension and focusing you and like really plant that Hook in your head and then you just it never leaves. And they obviously hear Smith Trick. Yeah, yeah, they obviously knew they had a hook with that and we're smart enough to get it in there fast. This song was just the hook. That's I feel like that's all down there, but I mean, Hey, you know what, it worked for them and this song peaked at number six on the US billboard hot one hundred back in November of nineteen. Ninety seven some other some other songs on the charts of...

...that time. Number one was candled when by Elton John. Number two was you make me want to buy usher. Three was how do I live, by Lean rhymes for is my love is the by something for the people featuring Trina and Tomaraw. Five was my body by LSG. Before we get to top pumping at six, I probably butchered those names, never those songs, but yeah, there's there's a couple decent songs, a couple if like ninety seven, the mainstream was, at least for me, persect like it was fading a little bit. But that's why we do the show. We figure out these songs are legit hits or songs gone wrong. But you had semi charmed life by Third Eye Blind at nineteen twenty one was criminal by Fianna Apple. Twenty three was building a mystery by everyone's favorite pet commercial. Ladies, Sarah Mclaughlin, the memory remains. By metallica debut at thirty one, Sonny came home, by Sean Colvin was thirty six, barely breathing, by Duncan chic was forty two and the freshman by the very pipe, was forty five. So yeah, all know, I personally was not necessarily that impressed with that chart. Yeah, but how about you guys? Well, that was one of the reasons, one of the ways that Tim and I came, came to this song, to pigs, because nineteen ninety seven and just such a weird, so weird year. I mean just list of those, the songs you went through. It just everything from Metallica till like yeah, I'm sinking sand times. Shake, Sarah mclaw what is it? Sonny came home. Who Sang that? Sean Colvin. So and then some r be stuff that I had never even heard of before my life. So, yeah, he was like Super Group. Okay'LSG was who was it? Gerald Le Vert, Keith sweat and Johnny Gill. Ha Ha ha, there's your lsg. I get it, all right, that's LSG. I'll see what they did there, Tim Tat and get. I've been pressed. I should wish you podcast together and I you know. I mean that that year is so wildly inconsistent. It's a lot of one hits, you know, and then it's a lot of I guess you'd say legacy band, you know, with Metallica just trudging along and Elton John Yeow, I'd forgotten that was hit that came I mean that was originally released in the s right, and then after Princess Diana he did like another version. That was so weird that that was a hit again, kind of like Bamian Rhapsody, I guess when Wayne's roll came out. Yeah, Yep, the S man. Yeah, yeah, there's no rhyme or reason. Once you get to the end of the s everything to s sort of falls apart in terms of like there are very few bands are having two hits. It starts to happen again with the new metal...

...bands and like, you know, limp biscuit and corn start having multiple hits. But there's like this stretch from like ninety five to ninety eight where it's just a free for all of weird stuff happening. That's that's I mean, you know, you got lean rhymes at that with the number two, who was like the the new showny a twain at that point. And She, N I twain, wasn't that old. I mean it was stolen. Yeah, you know that her stuff was was on the charts as well. So yeah, it was crazy, crazy, crazy and consistent time for music. Yeah, and this, this song fits in perfectly because he song doesn't make any sense. Yeah, terms of it being a US single. I think about that sometimes, about how many songs have been hits in the US that don't make any sense if they're not a dance song. Like macarina makes sense, even though it's, you know, the whole thing is not in English, but it's dance song. Okay, it's got it. It's got a dance that goes along to it. Well, what about like ninety nine loof balloons by Nina? Like why is that a hit in the US? That doesn't make any sense. Yep, frolling like German and this is basically a British drinking song. Correct with it. It has in it quotes Danny boy, which is a a traditional British folk song that like they sing in bars in in, you know, London. This is not just doesn't make any sense for it to be hit in the United States. There s man exactly. Not a lot on. Not a lot of things made sense, and that's why it was fantastic. I always thought the second part, there's really only two parts of the song. Yep, the second part always like, well, at least now when I listen to it, it kind of cute up the whole like feature dynamic that you hear in songs now, where it's like this male voice it's kind of almost rapping or talking and then you get this like melodic female voice that counters it, and I think that might have been the like one of the first times I'd really like heard that and it was done in this song where was just start contrast between these two different voices saying and totally different ways to I always thought that that was kind of a even though it it almost sounds like a different song, like once you cut out of that Big Cook and you go down to that, you know, more mellow part and almost sounds like, I don't know, like a section of a pet shop boy song or something, and you get the contrast between the two vocal styles. That always just stood out to me as being like Oh, that's that's kind of different. And then, and then Aqua, I think didn't aqua bite on that too. They had that same kind of like the one guy kind of like talking and then he had the girl vocalist. Oh Wow, yeah, and think about like South side by Moby with win Stefani. Yeah, he's like talking during the verses and she's singing the choruses. Yeah, yeah, I think that's not I don't think it's like...

...groundbreaking, but I think that they nailed it in a way that is, you know, perfect for this period and for the song. But you're right, this is like this song has like two parts and it has a horn solo which I think it's performed on keyboards. Yeah, those are real horns, are they? That's a good question. If those are real horns, I don't sound Keyboard Horny to me. Keyboard fuck they. I thought they were real horns. To be honest with you, there's nobody. Well, yeah, there's somebody who's credited with wind, wind instruments. There's a lot of people in this band, and I just want to point out the people in this band include the names Bof Wayley, Dan Bert, no Bacon, Dunstan, Bruce Made Dylan Das Hammer. These also like guys who were the drummer and spinal tap, right, or they're or they're in A. They're in a. There were background players in lock stock and too, smoking barrels like these are. These are a lot of secondary characters in a Guy Ritchie film. It's just I love, I love these names. That's it. Expect from a band called Chumbawamba. I guess right, it does fit. Yeah, I'm okay with that, but there. I mean so, so they're still popular to I mean they top pumping has been streamed on spotify over ninety five million times, not too shabby, and Chumbawamba actually has over one point three million monthly listeners. So there are people still listen, people still like I to imagine every s best of yeah, playlist on spotify includes this. Correct. Yeah, I mean my my listeners know my obsession with playlists. This is definitely one of those. It's on my s one hit wonders. So I think there were like sixty six one hit wonders in the S of I'm not mistaken, and it's all. I mean it's also it has to be on like your just your standard s playlist. It has to be on there, whether you like it or not, it's got to go on. Yeah, I don't think anybody's going on a spotify thinking I want to listen to tub thumping today, like it's just it's in a playlist. Yeah, you listen to it and it comes on, you're like yeah, son Jay, when you were talking about the part when the guy is singing, like it's so different in contrast. Yeah, in terms of you know, in in the chorus, you a stually get this like very simple electric guitar and it's got obviously a ton of vocals. When you go down in that verse section, which I am convinced they wrote the chorus and then went we what we need versus to connect them. We go we're going to play this course like three times and then played fifty times at the end of the song. But we need some sort of courses or versus. T can I need a break in there somewhere. We need to figure it out, because you...

...just can't. This isn't like you know, we can't just go with with this is a print song. You just can't write one regression. But it's it almost sounds like like, if you listen just to the music, it's yeah, it's very like new age, like it's very simple and clean and processed sounding. Yeah, which is not what I was expecting. When I revisited this I thought it was a little dirtier and it's not at all. I did too. Maybe it's because of the guitars and the chorus, which sound now sound terrible, but at the time at least it sounded big and it punched through the you know, the radio, pop radio at least. But yeah, listen to it now is like wow, this is really not that aggressive, that as aggressive as I remember being. Well, if you got a couple drinks new then it old kill, then you'll get a bit more aggressive, I suppose. Right. Yeah, so, like I said, this was their eighth album. So and one of the things like to talk about is like how did this song compared to the other songs on the album? That's kind of one of the fun things about doing this podcast, because I had actually never listened to this entire album before. So that this you know, this English band. They got their start in one thousand nine hundred and eighty two. Actually, top, as I said Tom Supper, was the eighth album. Something I found interesting was that in one thousand nine hundred and ninety eight, Chumba Womba was nominated at the MT the video music awards, for best new artist. Like, I didn't. I didn't realize you could be a new artist with like fifteen or so years of experience under your belt. But what are you gonna do? And seven albums under your belt. Wow. Yeah, and and also, like wild top thumbing is just kind of like this poppy, happy tune, you know, like you guys were saying before. A lot of the earlier work was kind of serious. How like a proper message to it, you know, political. I mean their first album was called pictures of starving children. Sell records, so they're okay, they're here to talk about stuff. But so how does this, you know, fit in with the other songs the album? It's not I'm not saying it's great, but it also wasn't terrible. It wasn't like listening to a Brantley Gilbert album where I wanted to gallage my eyes that with a spoon. It wasn't that bad. The album starts off with a song called Amnesia. has kind of another upbeat dance techno song. There's a the second song is drip, drip, drip. It kind of reminds me more of like like a poppy, like Nya. I guess you could say the course is great. I like those kind of fun, kind of basic the big issue it's got. That's actually like a serious song, but it's like upbeat musically, which is kind of interesting. Outsider. We're about like halfway through the album. Outsider, that was actually a pretty cool song. I like that one. That's might be my favorite one on the album. There's two songs, though, Mary Mary and scapegoat, which almost had like a Romsteen in light feel to it. Yeah, they're pretty the guitar little guitarists there, but yeah, what what did you think about that? Jay? Yeah, you could definitely see where they were. I don't know that we...

...disciraphy well enough. No, but at least they bring the guitars back. They bring in some of that gritty energy that you hear in tub thumping. It's definitely a contrast to some of the other material that gets really light, like it's almost sin pop or jock jams. So it's like this, I guess, the stab at, you know, being a little darker, almost industrial sounding. Yeah, but yeah, overall it's it's a fairly eclectic record. Um, I mean you really run a gamut and from like things that just sound like the lightest synth bass pop you can imagine with female vocals to yeah, it's kind of snarly industrial sounding guitar riffs and kind of Mary Mary even goes in between the two. Yeah. So, yeah, your point. Yes, this album is I fuck a coleptic. Is Pretty much what I would call this. So I feel like, with that being said, to pumping fits right in, because this shit's all over the place and it's not. It's it actually wasn't terrible. I don't know if you actually liked or not. I, like I said, I'm I like that song outsider. I'll probably listen to that again and maybe Mary Mary, but I was moderately surprised, and a good way. But again, I'm not going to be listening to this album. You know, probably anytime soon. Yeah, I think my biggest Christ is it's just a production is just so s well and and like very specific, like Dan, like the keyboard sounds and that drum machine sounds and the technology just screams, you know, mid to early S, you know, the technology for music. So that's probably the biggest downside to like really being able to give this record a chance. For me, you don't hear it as much as tub thumping and I think just because the song is so strong and kind of like pushes that back. But as you get into the rest of the record, it's it's like wow, that's a really that's a really corny and sounding drum sample, or that's a really you know, even the even the parts are very like typical of s, you know, dance. So we're you know, drum machine sounds and luke. Yeah, yeah, no, that's a fair point. They're so yeah, I think it's you know, it's kind of reader. I think it does kind of fit in because, like I said, it this plays. It's all over the place, so why not put it in there now? Lyrically, boy, this song gets very deep. It really cuts the core of you. Well, yeah, I feel like the song is like it's less of a song and more just like a like a soccer chant or like you know something you just keep screaming at a bar as You keep getting drinks serve to you. But yeah, pretty much like the lyrics are. I get knocked down, but I get up again. You're never going to keep you down. That's like ninety five percent of the lyrics. There's nothing really beyond the surface here lyrically and you know, obviously the song. I could...

...be wrong, but I think it's a what it's about is, I think the songs about getting up from being previously knocked down. So it is almost as if ai wrote this. Like if you, but you know, you had a I create a hit song, you could imagine this is what would come out the other side of it. Yeah, or they're even down to the lyrics. There's like big like Seo Buffs and are trying to corner the market on people getting knocked down or something like that. Yeah, it is so simple and basic in terms of like what works for a hit song. It's it's remarkable in that way that they stuck so well to that format of like this is how you write a hit sock. We're just going to do this shit and then we will have it hits all. There's one lyric that confuses me. Everything else took me, like you said it a I wrote this. When she sings O, Danny boy, Danny boy, Danny boy in the first verse. Okay, I get that. That's a British drinking song. In the second verse she sings don't cry for me, next door neighbor, what? Okay, but she sings don't cry for me like it's a Vita, like don't cry from Tina. Yeah, so I'm like, because she got knocked down. Is it's supposed to be funny, like is she like making I don't know if that's like a Madonna like joke or something that they threw in there, or if they just like needed something to fit the rhyme scheme or I don't know what that is doing in there, but that's literally the only line in the whole song that doesn't fit the AI profile. Yeah, there was. It tried to throw artificial variety in there. They're like a certain were percent oddness in the pround. Kind of makes sense, you know, because you know they're saying like don't worry about us, because we're down but guess what, we're going to get up again, that's true. Not and you're not going to keep me down. So may brine makes sense. I have a question for you guys. Would this song have made an impact in the US without the explosion of Britpop a couple years earlier? Good question. It's definitely like brings to that. That's your mind, that image of the you know, people in a pub with pints in their hand, like drinking and thrown darts, that's for sure. I don't know that that that sort of image had been would have been cemented with outward pop and specifically oasis, because, yeah about it, they were the band that really had the biggest impact in the in the US. Yeah, and they are associated with like, you know, soccer hooligans and brawling and and I feel like this song happens because people like, Oh yeah, this is like a wayte like they don't really know like this like that thing kind of stuff...

...that a waysis does like drink it right. So you see the soccer games, yeah, Football Games, footballers, yes, footies, but that was my impression listening to this. was like, Oh yeah, this is like a natural extension. I told you that you put into the AI, like right, Brit pop hit song and this is what comes out. There you go. We're going to find out that this was like an early experiment by Google. What is it with the what is with the ending of this song? So it fades there's a long fade out and then there's this weird instrumental piece on the right. We're on the record version. That's probably another minute or so long. Why is that there? That and that was ever played on the radio? Right, no, there's not. Single at it is much shorter. Yeah, I don't know. Yeah, I was. When I was listened to the record version, I was like, what is going on? Why? What? How did this get on? Here? Is it's a mistake. There, you know, the trump a woman and they do what they want. They're using all that CD. Oh, yeah, we paid for the CD where you wold all think? Yeah, the the album version is a full minute longer than the single version. Yeah, correct, and it does not need to be. No, I mean technically the single version could even be a shorter. True, but any, any lass notes, guys, before we get into our final verdict. The Maxi single has five remixes, but I've never heard but I do want to hear. Can never including one by Dave Fridman of the of the faming lips production. Huh? Yeah, just a lot of reasses. Yeah, this like. You know, you had those scene in handles in the s. You can just pout. You could just fill those c singles up in the N S with tons and tons of extra material. That's how you got the Americans to buy right. Mack random was the same way. Bastards. All right, guys, I say we go ahead and render our verdict. So Jay, will start with you. What do you think about top topping? Do you think it is a legit hit or do you think it's a song gone wrong? It's a legit head. I mean, like I said, this is a textbook how to write a hit song in every possible way, down to the simplest lyrics you can imagine, to get right to the hook, to you know, has the energy. You can sing along to it. It's it's got all the elements of a song. So I'm on board. All right. So we have one that says it's a hit Tim how about you? What do you think about top thumping? I am going to have to agree with my my cohost. I just feel like something this anthemic that you...

...can hear it now and be at a bar and you will, you will get excited to pick up your whiskey drink or your sighter drink or are your vodka drink or your vodka drink or your logger drink, and you know there's just there is something to this. It's so catchy that it's undeniable. And when you have that, even if you don't maybe love you know, we've pointed out some sort of deficiencies with the song itself in terms of production or whatever you would have you but when you have that melody that it just is so perfect and captures a perfect vibe, you just you can't you can't shout it down. So yeah, it's definitely it's a hit and I can imagine myself like intentionally listening to this, but I also can't tell see myself turning it off of it came on. Yeah, you know, fair quiet. Yeah. So yeah, for me, I mean this song was everywhere, you know, in the late S, early s, but does not necessarily mean it was a legit hit. I mean I appreciate the sentiment about getting knocked down getting up again, and it's it is catchy, but that's because they say I get knocked down, but I get up again. Twenty seven times. I counted seven times like this. This song is best served as a poster or a coffee Mug to start your day off on the right foot. But I don't I don't think that's enough for a for a song. Now, I'd be fine putting this song in the hot one hundred, I don't think I would put it in the top forty. So I'm going to I'm going to have a log or drink and say top pumping is as a song gone wrong. Wow, you knocked it down. It's never gonna get up against yeah, well, we'll see. We'll see if it does get up again, because we have our fan vote. So let's see what they have to say about so will it remind them of the good times or of the best times? We'll find out. See what you did there. So the listeners have spoken and sixty one percent said yes, this is a legit hit boom. So what's and this was I was actually keeping my eye on this when we put the the the vote out, and it was it was hovering around thousand and fifty for the good portion of the time and about the end it just took off and went to yes, it's a legit hit. But that's interesting because on your on your episode, we talked about Cantrell, your listeners agreed with me, whereas on this episode my listeners agree with you. So I guess it's fair. Right. I was on twitter lobbying.

Come on, guys, listen, listen, it's not that bad. Come on, will you making promises? J I was sliding the DM's making cut deals. Worry about the four season mailed and harvesting on ference before season to talk to you guys about tub pumping. But we had from great feedback. We have our good friend Irish Keith, he's at Tis me self, you know, said I asked the wife what she thought, which is always a good start, by the way. Always check with the MRS yes and check up the boss, and she said it's a great pub song when you're out with the pals and this comes on the jukebox and you all sing along and love it. Otherwise it's Shite. I think I have to agree. So that's what that's working. Friend Irish Keith said. Yeah, yeah, at twenty seven bad fish said is legit at Tom p Willis said it's my jam. At the real ts nuts said legit again. Everybody loved it at the time. At Minister Society One, our girlfriend, Alex, said, I absolutely effing hate the song and it's existence disappoints me. At Louise Dad said horribly wrong. At crash eighty six said that song catches so much shit, but it's always there. It's almost like it gets knocked down but it gets back up again. I see what you did there, Rob I see you did. And at sixty two said it's in between legit and horrible. So I guess that makes it a song. So that's the that's the feedback we have. It looks like looks like top thumping by Chumba WOMBA's legit hit. Guys, you were you were right. The fans and bulders agreed with you. I really thought they were onehead wonder two. So I'm actually kind of relieved to know that they've sounds like they have some kind of career outside of this song, which is nice to know. Pretty lengthy career to yeah, I don't know. They were totally off my radar when this song came and when it went, and I thought they went with it. So I'm glad to be proved around there. Yeah, I think they think they stuck around for about maybe an other ten or so years after Tub thumper came out. So I think they broke up maybe around like two thousand and ten, two thousand and twelve, somewhere around there. Yeah. So, yeah, they had a bold, almost a good thirty year career. Not Too Shabby, not at all. All right guy as well. Thanks for jumping on the show and talking some music.
