5.0 out of 5 stars More rabbit than Sainsburys..., 28 July 2004
This review is from: The Best of Chas & Dave (Audio CD)
Charles and David's knee tapping best all rolled into one album....quite superb. Clearly many of these songs are lyrical masterpieces using the language of the common cokney sparra' to make some insightful comments on today's society.
In Sickness and in Health "My dinner's always cold when I come home from up the pub...", Rabbit "You've got beautiful eyes, you've got beautiful thighs..." and Snooker Loopy "Old Willy Thorne, his hair's all gone and his mate's all take the rise...".
What great modern-day wordsmith's these two are. Irony, symbolism, inuendo and rhyme...they have it all and will surely go down as East End legends.
Marvellous...
