Six songs to add to your Pissing Off The Whole Park playlist

CHILLING in the park? Brought your Bluetooth speaker? Keen for everyone and their dog to hear your latest music mix? These six classics will get on everyone’s tits: 

Boombastic by Shaggy

This funky island groove is sure to convince families having picnics that they’re on a Caribbean getaway, not a patch of grass near the duck pond. For added flare, get up and skank, gesturing to your crotch during the ‘Mr Lover Lover’ bit.

Mr Blue Sky by the Electric Light Orchestra

Such a happy, peppy summer staple everyone will have heard it a hundred sodding times already, so why not play it again, loudly with distorted bass? The earworm of a chorus will have everyone in the immediate vicinity rhythmically wincing for days to come.

In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry

In case those sunbathers have forgotten, it’s summertime! Which means it’s high time to bust out horny songs from the 60s sung by men with muttonchops. Blow your empty beer bottle along in time for a truly horrible, toe-curling effect.

Who Let The Dogs Out? by Baha Men

Because if you’re only playing music to irritate, why go for half-measures? This full-on f**k-off-everybody classic will have people wincing a mile away as they catch a strain of it on the wind.

Pow! (Forward) by Lethal Bizzle

Lethal is a lovely chap, personable and approachable, but this song is so aggressively in-your-face it remains banned in grime clubs for starting too many fights. And it’s very likely you can say the same about anyone playing it at top volume in the park.

Anything by Ed Sheeran

There are so many fantastic options from the ginger troubadour’s back catalogue all carefully calculated to push that guy eating his lunch over the edge. Whether it’s the one from the M&S advert or the one from everyone’s weddings, you’ll collect stern looks and maybe even a ASBO.
