In the light of the spat between scientists and religious leaders, this Rise and Shine special Easter holiday edition song deals with the issue of animal / human hybrids, cloning, embryology and the Catholic Church… just a light-hearted if twisted look at the topic of life and death, set in a future disco.
Featuring Bertrand (Moox) on piano, and Louise Whitham (aka DJ Dolly available for parties, raves and poetry readings).
Got to get down to this brand new rhythm
Come on baby, let's be born again
We don't need this DNA we're given
This embryonic disco never ends
We can make a brand new congregation
His Genetic Message we must send
Oh, honey, we can clone our way to Heaven
Get close to God with all our furry friends
We don't have to die
Cloning is the reason why
All together, let's hear you cry
We don't have to die...
from Rise and Shine: Breakfast with Inspiration,
track released March 20, 2009
Written and performed by Dean Whitbread, Dan Brittain, Louise Whitham, with Bertrand (Moox) on piano (prelude) and DJ Dolly (spoken voice).
