Lyrics
According to the BBC, I’m in a nuclear zone
Cannot find the Geiger app on my mobile phone.
The media reports the power’s out, but I’m watching this on TV
Americans are buying iodine pills—but a beer will do for me
Don’t Panic…
A British lady says she’s starving—no food apparently
All I really lack is a drop of milk for my cup of tea.
The foreigners have gone, packed their faith & left all us all behind
The Japanese though seem to be in a zen-like state of mind.

Good tune, mer
Bit perturbed by the google ad I'm looking at on this page reading "Fukushima & Chernobyl".
Real singing from you on this one. Loving it.

Nice one, lads. Feeling a bit 'zen' myself. Aftershock, by Old Spice an' all that!

Yes, keep your cool
This pop tune is quite catchy. Your embellishments really add to your mix. It's like you are doing a public service announcement.

thanks for the download :)

Am interesting take
Am interesting take on the situation. I remember the year I spent in Tokyo. Can't see it being disrupted much by the Nuke problem. (Except maybe the power issues)

No problem in Tokyo
You're right. No real problem in Tokyo--except for houses built on reclaimed land near the bay.

I like
the wry-ness of the lyrics and the instrumentation is perfect for this... can't just think who your vocal reminds me of... is it 'Sugs'? Whoever it is you did a great job here, regards M
