Thank you Chris Moyles

Radio X, for me, is one of the best radio stations. Not just because of the great music or the funny presenters, but sometimes because of videos like these. Chris Moyles takes apart this song and looks at each line individually and the result is hilarious. Jack Jones basically sings about how men should come home and if their wife isn’t dressed up and looking good, then ‘men will be men’ and just stray away!

The reason why i’m posting this, is because of how times have changed and just a little look into the 60’s where this was obviously the ‘norm’, yet it’s quite clearly very derogatory towards women.

  1. I have this song on a compilation CD. It is so funny to think that that was acceptable back then. The opening lines are ones we would all sing with glee:

    Hey, little girl, comb your hair, fix your make-up, soon he will open the door,
    Don’t think because there’s a ring on your finger, you needn’t try any more.

    Great selection. Must trawl through the CD for some more Patriarchal pop!

    1. I can’t even imagine this being acceptable! It’s crazy that it was okay to sing casually about how women should be ‘dolled up’.
