London Girls

Rabbit

Chas & Dave almost invariably produced fun and interesting songs. And, if fun is to be a parameter of any kind to highlight musical prowess, this one has to be on the top of that list.

As the title suggests, the song is about those who can’t stop rabbiting on, and how their incessant talking cancels out their good traits. In the 80s, the song became a social earworm, and the playlist of clubs and pubs at the time couldn’t be complete without it.

Ain’t No Pleasing You

This one’s from the soothing chapter of Chas & Dave’s discography. One of the most popular songs of the time, Ain’t No Pleasing You won hearts for being simple and melodious.

The song’s lyrics point to the realization of being in a bad relationship, and courage to walk out of it with no guilt whatsoever. And, like many of Chas & Dave songs, Ain’t No Pleasing You is extremely easy to follow and sing along to.

Snooker Loopy

If you want Rockney (Rock and Cockney) in its best form, this song may be your answer. The beats and overall feel of Snooker Loopy resemble a catchy nursery rhyme that deserves multiple recitations.

The jingle in the background stays with you for a long time, and the situational nature of the lyrics makes it a favourite among friends out to enjoy. In a way, the lyrics are motivational while also featuring a bunch of funny lines (the hallmark of Chas & Dave music).

The Sideboard Song

Another song with a message to jump into the careless wagon of a train named Life. The main verse goes, “I got my beer and a sideboard here let mumma sort it out if he comes around here”. You see where it’s going!

The rhythm is catchy with quick beats. However, despite being fast, there isn’t any sort of unnecessary loudness that sometimes is inherent in songs of this nature.


Best Songs by Chas & Dave

Margate

This one’s more like an anthem carrying at its core the classic C&D flavour. A pub-favourite, Margate features a wavy, classic tune that sticks with you. It is one of Chas & Dave’s most popular songs and has been featured on a variety of shows.

And again in line with the majority of Chas & Dave songs, Margate celebrates friendships, relationships, and a positive attitude towards life in a unique manner.


Best Songs by Chas & Dave

Gertcha

Gertcha is the result of a special blend of American country music style and the British way of musical execution. With infectious energy and unique lyrics about the angry old man, Gertcha manages to get your hands swinging in the air. The song was used as the music for the notable television commercial Courage Bitter.


Best Songs by Chas & Dave

Edmonton Green

Though not as popular as other entries on the list, Edmonton Green is one of the most incredible C&D creations. The song evokes a feeling of peace and happiness with its lazy tunes and the duo’s relaxed way of singing. The song is very different in how it’s been executed and highlights the musical variety the duo was capable of pulling off.


Best Songs by Chas & Dave

Old Dog & Me

Need a little inspiration to embrace life as it is? Old Dog & Me is the song you’re going to want to listen to. The song is a bit of a departure from Chas & Dave’s natural style as there is no use of sharp beats or humorous commentary.

The lyrics highlight the significance of being content, happy, and free of worldly needs. Despite never having earned the fame it deserved, the song has a special place in the hearts of fans and music lovers across the globe.
