Charlie Mgee's "Revegetated" remix based around the principle of diversity with something of a circusy-hip-hop vibe bringing some swinging uke and ragtime piano cuts together with glitchy scat-vocals set to an undercurrent of funky beets. Featuring Harry Jakamarra on the banjo.
If you mix every colour under the sun,
in time you’ll find that you just have one.
Better give them all a chance to shine
cos otherwise you end up with the same thing.
It’s a delicate balancing act,
and that applies to you and me
'Cause the only way we stay intact
Is with a big fat dose of diversity.
Our bodies are a billion organisms made into one
There’s no telling where the last one ended
or where the next tiny little bacterium begun
You see, diversity is your friend and
If your food only had one flavour
If everything that you said was right
it really wouldn’t work to your favour
Variety is the spice of life.
'Cause there’s many, many, many, many different kinds
and many, many, many, many different places
Many, many, many, many different times
many, many, many, many different faces
Many, many, different varieties,
many, many, people in society
Many different opinions on the way to do things
many, many, many, many songs to sing
If you like everything to look the same
just open your mind and try to get past it
'cause it really does make you stronger
when you don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
The more functioning connections the better
You never know what it will become
Mix it up but keep it together
Make your differences work as one.
'cause there’s many many…
Mix it up, mix it up, mix it up
Bring it back, bring it back, bring it back
