Survival GameI wrote this tune, Survival Game, with Mike Turtle, one of my favourite musical collaborators, who was the brains behind We Are Dust and is part of Sacred Cow – he’s the one wearing red.

The song was remixed half a dozen times until it started rising up the charts. I became briefly mildly famous in Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Chile (!) and played a few gigs to sell the song. We made no money from this despite it selling platinum and going briefly top ten – it was written as a fundraiser for charity “It’s 5 to 12” to benefit impoverished and undernourished East Africa, and I’m pleased to say we did raise quite a bit of money for the cause.

Here’s the original version:

This mentalist dance remix someone sent me from Russia. It bears practically no relation to the original tune, and thus, it’s my favourite.
