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?
