Additional Information:

  • As well as less tinny production, the re-recording deals with (as does the The Cost of Living EP itself) the commercialisation of music. As well as a joke acoustic intro, the song has a new coda where Joe unveils a parodic masterplan to get the band's music played on the radio, which culminates with the band apeing a quasi-disco sound and Joe spouting hip catchphrases such as "I'm the one that I want!", an allusion to the song 'You're the One That I want' on the then recently released Grease film soundtrack.
