The Stig


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
So I happen to be a HUGE fan of BBC's Top Gear.... It is simply one of the funniest shows ever conceived....

That being said I have always found this mystery man/driver known as The Stig to be such a wonderful and enigmatic character that I thought he deserved his own song....

So here it is.... The Stig

The mid-section even has me doing a rather lousy Jeremy Clarkson impression....

Enjoy Very Loudly!

All instruments and vocal performed by yours truly....

p.s. this tune is from the SCW record "Magnetar" now on iTunes and CdBaby....

Lyrics
Some say he's got a tattoo of a face on his face
Some say he suffers with a fear of trees
Some say he sheds his skin off like a snake
Some say he thought Star Wars was a documentary

Watch him tear up through the gears, Stig watch the under steer

Some say his first name really is "The"
Some say he bought a Fiat from the duke
Some say from ducks he sucks the moisture
Some say he's allergic to Amsterdam

Yes he tossed a microwave at a tramp
What can you say about a CIA experiment gone terribly wrong

(Lap Announcement)

That sucker may not be a human but he can drive

That sucker may not be a human but he can fly

Watch him tear up through the gears
Watch him control the under steer
Watch him accelerate past fear

All we know is he is called The Stig

tear through the gears
i also am a huge Top Gear fan. I saw the title of the song and thought "surely not THAT stig" and whoa how lucky. this is a terrific tune. love the "tossed a microwave at a tramp" line. the car blog i'm into - www.jalopnik.com - would dig this. any rate this tune is going on my forza playlist.

Top Gear
OK, so this Subaru driver is a car nut also. I love when my daughter comes to visit because I get to drive her Porsche Cayenne Sport (how come kids can afford much better cars than teir parents?).

Rocks and rolls (with a little understeer). Nice track Ian.

I won't play this song in my car or I would get a ticket: it asks for speed. I like the somewhat dissonant chords just before the end.
Love the show too. Specially when they tested what was the speed a bald guy loses his wig on an open convertible. Those guys are so funny.

Huge.....Huge I Say
Great riffs. Aggressive performances on all instruments and tracks. Harmonically very interesting, much more so than a lot of heavy music. Love it! Want more!
