Julian Cope – East Easy Rider


Returning for the final song of the evening is fastfreddie and his request for Julian Cope’s, East Easy Rider. Not nearly as thrash as his earlier Motorhead suggestion, but easily more esoteric and equally British. At least this song is about motorcycling. However, both songs are more lyrically shallow than the wheels on the bus going round and round. In fact, East Easy Rider is basically composed of four repeated lines (but we still like the song):

“Well it’s a bruising shattering ride

But I cannot deny myself this luxury

East easy rider

Easy ride inside of you”
