The Office's David Brent Records With Noel Gallagher





From the "life imitating art" files we hear at XFM that Noel Gallagher has taken time out from writing the long awaited new Oasis album to record a novelty record with David Brent, Ricky Gervais’ award winning legendary character from BBC America television series The Office. According to sources Gallagher recently went into the studio with Gervais to record a version of the Forergone Conclusion song "Free Love Freeway", which David Brent performed in an episode from the first series of The Office. Classic.


What we want to know is, Will Gareth Keenan be on harmonies? (For those not getting the references, do yourself a favor and track down the DVDs for Seasons One and Two.) “We’ve tried to make it as serious as possible,” Gervais explained, “And to make it as close as possible to how it would be if this were released as a record.” The new version is intended for inclusion as a special feature on the new DVD version of The Office , thought no official single release is planned

For The Office-addicts and Foregone Conclusion fans who caught the tour opening for Scottish chancers Texas, the complete lyrics to "Free Love Freeway" are:

Pretty girl on the hood of a Cadilac, yeah....
She’s broken down on freeway nine.
I take a look and her engine’s started,
I leave her purring and I roll on by.... Bye bye

(Chorus)

Free love on the free love freeway,
The love is free and the freeway’s long...
I got some hot love on the hot-love freeway
I ain’t going home cos’ my baby’s gone

A little while later, see a senorita,
She’s caught a flat trying to make it home,
She says ‘Por favor, can you pump me up?’
I say ‘Muchos gracias, adios. Bye Bye.’

(Chorus)

Free love on the freelove freeway,
The love is free and the freeway’s long
I got some hot love on the hotlove highway,
Ain't going home ‘cause my baby's gone.

Little while later I see a cowboy crying,
’Hey buddy, what can I do?’
He says ‘I lived a good life, had about a thousand women’
I said ‘Why the tears?’ he says ‘Cause none of them was you’

(Chorus)

Free love on the free love freeway,
where the love is free and the freeway is long...
I got some hot love on the hot-love freeway
I ain’t going home cos’ my baby’s gone
