Cheeseburger

Recommended Posts

Have been following Name that Tune in Fun and Games and someone quoted Cheeseburger. Have always wondered about it - does anyone know, is it just a funny or is there more to it? (I like it on the Greatest Hits commentary too "Ch-ch-cheeseburger"!)

Thanks, Emma

Hi Emma,

I think the Wets have said in a few interviews over the years that they are fans of The Clash and 'cheeseburger' (or 'cheeseboiger') appears in the Clash song The Magnificent Seven so I assume it appears in Can't Stand The Night as a kind of tribute to The Clash...not too sure though really! wink.gif

It was me who quoted "Cheeseburger" on the Name That Tune thread.

I'll go with the Clash story myself :lol:

Interesting, thanks for the replies. Talking of snippets of other songs I presume "and I won't work for nobody but you" in East of the River is one? Anybody know any others?
