Back in the 80's and early 90's here in The UK we had a satirical puppet show called 'Spitting Image' it mostly lampooned politicians and the royals but celebrities including musicians were fair game too.

I loved the show - this thread is for some of the best music sketches.

I liked one of the episode closing songs called 'Charles Life' about Prince Charles based on the Blur song Parklife.  "All the people, so many people, and we all prefer his wife, dun dun dun, Charles Life."

I can't find the clip.

u2 - Nobody Knows What Im About

I like the line "I stand in the desert with a bunch of Pricks"

In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

It's going to be on HBO - I hope it takes off in the USA because SNL is anemic and we need good political comedy

An American show, sending up Americans, written by a team of American scriptwriters, don't expect it to be ball bouncingly funny like Spitting Image used to be.
