Mick Jagger & Dave Grohl release lockdown song

Mick Jagger & Dave Grohl

Mick Jagger has surprised fans with a new lockdown song. With the help of Dave Grohl on drums, bass and guitar, the Rolling Stones frontman has put together an energetic and uplifting punk track.

On his YouTube channel, Mick said “I wanted to share this song that I wrote about eventually coming out of lockdown, with some much needed optimism”.

‘Eazy Sleazy’ takes a candid and mostly humorous look at the Covid-19 lockdown. It takes you through the lockdown process with the first verse talking about the early stages of lockdown, being told and accepting that we needed to stay at home, pacing around the garden, as well as referencing the “grim” numbers.

Mick goes on to sing about many of the lockdown trends such as learning to cook, tik tok dances, online sumba classes as well as drinking too much and putting on that extra lockdown weight. ‘Eazy Sleazy’ then goes on to talk about some of the conspiracy theories with the lyrics “shooting the vaccine, Bill Gates is in my blood stream” even referencing “the earth is flat and cold”.

The track is a real up beat and catchy track and the pairing of Jagger and Grohl is the perfect combination with the Foo Fighters frontman’s multi-instrumental ability really put on dislay, matched with Mick’s iconic lead vocals.

Eazy Sleazy Lyrics:
We took it on the chin
The numbers were so grim
Bossed around by pricks
Stiffen upper lips
Pacing in the yard
Youre trying to take the mick
You must think im really thick

Looking at the graphs with a magnifying glass
Cancel all the tours footballs fake applause
No more travel brochures
Virtual premieres
Ive got nothing left to wear

Looking out from these prison walls
You got to rob peter if you’re paying paul
But its easy easy everythings gonna get really freaky
Alright on the night
Soon it ll be be a memory youre trying to remember to forget

Thats a pretty mask
But never take a chance tik tok stupid dance
Took a samba class I landed on my ass
Trying to write a tune you better hook me up to zoom
See my poncey books teach myself to cook
Way too much tv its lobotomising me
Think ive put on weight
Ill have another drink then ill clean the kitchen sink

We escaped from the prison walls
Open the windows and open the doors
But its easy easy
Everything s gonna get really freaky
Alright on the night
Its gonna be a garden of earthly delights
Easy sleazy its gonna be smooth and greasy
Yeah easy believe me
Itll only be a memory youre trying to remember
To forget

Shooting the vaccine bill gates is in my bloodstream
Its mind control
The earth is flat and cold its never warming up
The arctics turned to slush
The second comings late
Theres aliens in the deep state

We’ll escape from these prison walls
Now were out of these prison walls
You gotta pay peter if you’re robbing paul
But its easy easy everything s gonna be really freaky
Alright on the night
Were all headed back to paradise
Yeah easy believe me
Itll be a memory you’re trying to remember to forget
Easy cheesy everyone sing please please me
Itll be a memory you’re tring to remember to forget
