Shakin' Stevens 'This Ole House'

Shaky is weird, quintessentially 80s despite his pastiching of an earlier rock and roll era. He also invented that whole "cover a song in a completely different style" thing that is so popular with the young people today.

This record is, of course, awesome.

My pal Conor K maintains that this song was written by a committed Marxist, and song is an allegory on how decrepit late period capitalism ("this ole house") is on the brink of collapse.
