    I heard his latest effort of a song on the radio this morning and found myself in fitz of laughter. The lyrics are dreadful, I nabbed this from his fab website.... Verse 1 I was born in the heart of Dublin Back when being gay wasn't cool Made get on our knees every Sunday with the other fools We were warped by the Christian Brothers In the cell blocks at our schools Get a handprint on your skin Before you break their rules Pre Chorus 1 Go hit me now That I'm twice your size Brushed off the accusations And bowed before your lies Chorus 1 This is the city that raised me With the religion they gave me Now I'm old enough to know my own mind And it was leaving that saved me I seen so much that has changed me Just break with your past Feed your own mind This Irish son has moved with the times Verse 2 Weddings deaths or baptizing children That's my debt paid to the church I don't need that kind of salvation When I get hurt Pre Chorus 2 Don't fill my head with sermons And force me to believe Chorus 2 This is the city that raised me With the religion they gave me Now I'm old enough to know my own mind And it was leaving that saved me I seen so much that has changed me Just break with your past Feed your own mind Cos' this Irish son has moved with the times Middle 8th Our father who art in heaven Come down here and make your presence known We can't do it on our own The lunatics let run the asylum How can we find peace inside your home When you can't trust your own Chorus 3 This is the city that raised me With the religion they gave me Now I'm old enough to know my own mind But it was leaving that saved me I've seen so much that has changed me So just break with your past Feed your own mind Cos' this Irish son has moved with the times Cos' this Irish son has moved with the times

    i know its dreadful!!!!Did u hear the latest though, he's off being a media whore, bombarding the usual rags with scandal about how he was beaten by the christian brothers and that's what inspired the song! My opinion-they didn't hit him hard enough!

    the lyrics might shed some light on why he broke up with what's-her-face. that's the tabloid scandal i want. "and now i don't believe that you burn in hell for being a cock smuggler anymore/so i can split up with my wife" i'm sure those lyrics would fit somewhere. it's terrible all right. he's trying to be profound, it'd be better if it was complete gibberish. a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

    this is heavy stuff if he is a victim (is he?) of what 1 in 4 in the country have been through. and even though the art of it is poor, he is still getting something off his chest so fair dues to him. BUT, if he is not a victim then may he hang his head in shame and contribute all proceeds to a relevant charity either way it reeks of money/pulicity stunt and now i really want to kill the company people that put him there. idiots. coke is soooo bad for you lads.

    The Christian Brothers are looking into his case and say that he only ever came into contact with one christian brother while he was at school and that on this basis it is a very serious accusation. Hopefully the matter gets cleared up and that its not the classic example of writing about something you don't know about.

    I read what Ian O'Doherty (who is a w**ker too but thats besides the point) wrote about his appearence on the late late and he made it sound that McFadden got slapped about 3-4 times in school, don't know if thats an accurate description of what he said or just O'Doherty playing to his professional-asshole "persona" but it its true then I'll happily give him another 34 slaps for using one of the most disgusting things to happen in 20th century Ireland as a publicity stunt.

    Yeah, Christian brothers schools in the mid eighties were rough places to be. If you didn't finish your kiora orange you would'nt get your gold star - now thats not real to me.

    I dont want to answer for anyone, but I share Optimuses feeling of shame. Maybe because this man who seems to be mainly concerned with his appearance and the record buying publics perception of him thinks that he can hi jack a terrible torment systematically inflicted upon thouseands of people (mostly poor people it must be added, illigitimate, orphans etc.)and use it to make money? theres a few other good reasons that come to mind but this is a music discussion board so i'll limit my rant to venting my personal disgust at this particular act of greed and stupidity.

    I'm disgusted at the way that things have come to be. I mean whats become of subtlety. Or talent. I have my own problems with catholicism and how enforced upon me it was when I lived in dublin, but I have better ways of venting it than playing the bleeding heart to thousands of idiots who'll respond in kind. People have been reduced to, on an insulting level, zombies, because in essence, it has been allowed to be so. We now have easily digestible, cant mean anything else type songs being released without second thought. Where's the ambiguity and the artisitc flair that allows songs like led zepp's "No Quarter" or GNR's "Estranged" to be left open to interpetration that the average person with more than one brain cell can interpret however they feel. This kind of CRAP diminishes the all round level of music to a sub-par level. Which in my opinion is bad news for the country that has produced nothing but essentially good to excellent acts, pre-1990's. The everyman is not poetic. The everyman acts with only what he carries with him as his weapon. The one's who matter are the genuinely affected people, or at least people who are smart. Play from your god damned heart. Not Brian Mc-f**kING-Fadden. I mean, sweet jesus. Ireland birthed U2, Thin Lizzy, Therapy, Kerbdog, the Mexican Pets, Skindive. And crap like McFadden is big? My heart weeps... Sorry...I know most of this meanders and such but this kinda stuff just cant be tolerated. And I assume most of you people arent idiots so I hope what I've said makes sense. Rant over. On with the show.

    check this out .............. Belfast Telegraph Home > Lifestyle > Music Brian McFadden: please go away... By Ian O'Doherty 17 November 2004 Following his nauseating appearance on the Late Late Show, when he desperately tried to convince a sceptical nation that we should all have sympathy for him, Brian McFadden simply refuses to leave us alone. As greedy for publicity as his appalling ex-wife, McFadden has now turned his attention-seeking radar in the direction of the Church which, he claims, is responsible for abusing him. Obviously there's an angle here and with the release next week of his single Irish Son, McFadden has been quick to hop on the abuse bandwagon. McFadden is adamant that he was hit in school, saying "I did personally suffer physical abuse" and that he "suffered the back of their hand three or four times". Maybe we live in an era of compassion fatigue, but since when did feeling the back of a teacher's hand qualify as physical abuse? McFadden, who once seemed to be the most unaffected of the Westlife boys, has plans to open a cheap recording studio and bizarrely says: "There are so many artists like Patrick Casey and Damian Rice who nobody pays attention to." Really? Would McFadden actually be referring to Paddy Casey, who is managed by Paul McGuinness, and Damien Rice, whose album O is one of the best-selling Irish albums in years? McFadden's next song, he says, is called Demons, which is "about a dream I have where no one recognises me". Give it a few months, Brian, give it a few months. Source: Irish Independent

    Ok guys, I am proud to unveil the first annual Brian McFadden Victimhood Song Contest. The rules of the contest are simple. 1) Dream up a form of victimisation which Brian might claim he has suffered. 2) Give the song a title. 3) Give an indication of a sample lyric. The prize: 100 copies of Brian's debut album which you can ceremonially burn in your back garden.

    That is legendary. Excuse me for this question but didnt teachers hitting students stop in the 80's? Which is when Mcf**ker went to school? He has no life experience that relates to his songs. I'm so angry....*shirt & pants rip open to reveal a naked me* Oh yeah..I'm not the Hulk. DAMMIT!

    Ooooh Oooooh...Me first me first... "I'm a w**ker(with no friends)" By Brian Mcf**king f**ker Mother f**ker!!! "Verse 1 I was born in the heart of Dublin Back when being gay wasn't cool I guess I'm trying to tell you something But I dont know cos I'm a fool We were warped by the Christian Brothers In the cell blocks at our schools But I wouldnt know anything about that Because I'm just a bloody tool Pre Chorus 1 Go hit me now No wait I was kidding Not the face not the face Why doesnt anyone love me? Chorus 1 This is the city that raised me With the same religion as you Now I'm old enough to know my own mind Or do I cos I've been told what to do I seen so much that has changed me Why does life have to move on With Westlife I was big in the 90's No one likes this Irish Son... Verse 2 Weddings deaths or baptizing children My lyrics suffer from bad taste I'm trying to represent myself So that you'll understand my pain Chorus 2 This is the city that raised me With the same religion as you Now I'm old enough to know my own mind Or do I cos I've been told what to do I seen so much that has changed me Why does life have to move on With Westlife I was big in the 90's No one likes this Irish Son... Middle 8th Our father who art in heaven How come I've never had a friend? I've paid people and gotten married But no one wants to stick around Is this all a sign of the times? Or am I really on my own? Chorus 3 This is the city that raised me With the same religion as you Now I'm old enough to know my own mind Or do I cos I've been told what to do I seen so much that has changed me Why does life have to move on With Westlife I was big in the 90's No one likes this Irish Son..." Oh my God that felt good. *lights a cigarette* How was it for you?
