Rejection Playlist Volume 2, Track 2 (A) “Tubthumping”

I’d like to thank Emma Donoghue, author of Room, for reminding me of this gem of a song. Like many 90’s one-hit-wonders I forgot that it existed. It’s a pretty good song for life and being tenacious and resilient and all that bullshit if we’re talking about theme here. Of course, Chumbawamba’s hit was really about getting wasted, but let’s pretend it applies to writers and rejection, shall we?

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You’re never gonna keep me down

But we all know what sometimes happens when you’ve been rejected by one two many jobs/lovers/agents:

Pissing the night away
Pissing the night away
He drinks a whiskey drink
He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times

Are you tubthumping yet?
