Following The Shift’s suggestions to the Prime Minister, our readers have come up with their own line-up for February’s concert which will see the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra play Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s favourite songs.
Here is a selection of the most popular tunes among readers’ suggestions.
Money, Money, Money by Abba
Unsurprisingly, this is by far the most jettisoned song by our readers. Pink Floyd’s Money also got a few mentions
In Questo Mondo Di Ladri by Antonello Venditti
No, Venditti is not wearing a Panama hat
Pajjiz tal-Mickey Mouse by John Bundy
A bit of a cliché but who is to deny that it’s the silly season all year round in Malta
I Fought The Law by Dead Kennedys
Just like the American punk band did with Bobby Fuller Four’s original version, Muscat has turned the tables on good governance
I Am The One And Only by Chesney Hawks
He’s no Dom Mintoff, but Muscat will go down as Labour’s most successful leader
Breaking The Law by Judas Priest
Breaking the law is bad, very bad
My Way by Frank Sinatra
Muscat might have bit off more than he can chew, but will he have any regrets?
Catch Me If You Can by Walking on Cars
For the time being, the odds are clearly stacked in Muscat’s favour
It Wasn’t Me by Shaggy
The dancehall version of Mhux Jien Mama
Love The Way You Lie by Eminem
People want to hear what they want to hear
BONUS TRACK: I Ran by A Flock of Seagulls
Perhaps the Prime Minister’s best kept secret
