Sit Down was a bit of an odd choice for Gordon Brown to come on the stage to anyway, wasn't it? Besides being a song that reeks of student discos from nearly twenty years ago, isn't it a bit of a terse message to be giving the masses?
Anyway, Tim Booth isn't happy that it was used at all:
Oddly, NME.com describe 'organisation playing record' as an "incident" which perhaps overplays it.
Booth thinks that Brown missed the point:
Is unity why Brown chose it, though? Perhaps it's the lines "now I've swung back down again, it's worse than it was before/ if I hadn't seen such riches I could live with being poor..."
