Oh no! What a terrible week it is if even McFly can be doubted! The usually faultless McFly premiered their new single on Radio 1 this weekend just gone. ‘One For The Radio’ is the first single since the pretty chaps left Island records to start their own label, and boy you can tell.
Radio rips aside, it sounds like they’ve got some production money, but oh how bitter they sound. The whole track is about how the nation take the piss out of them and how they’re only seen as a pop band. I’m upset. The song itself is essentially brilliant, wonderful tune, great big opportunities for punch the sky moments but it just needs a different bloody subject. McFly never took themselves this seriously.
At least it isn’t as bad as Ballad of Paul K. And at least they’re still hot.
