Trailer Park

A preview of coming attractions: the unspeakably cool “Trailer Park”, which I believe was intended for a South Park soundtrack, sounds more like a Gorillaz song than any other by the band (with the possible exception of “So You”), while it has one foot in “I’m Just A Killer For Your Love”. It’s also the only song on 13 not to be produced by William Orbit.

Within the context of the album it’s tempting to see “Trailer Park” as another break-up song, with lines about Damon losing his girl “to the Rolling Stones”, but as sweet as the image of Justine waking up in bed with Mick, Keith and the ones whose names I can never remember is, the overall looseness of the song and the rest of the lyrics suggests Damon was pretty much singing a load of nonsense. “Freestyle 45”, for sure, country boy. He didn’t even bother to come up with words for the chorus!
